Algold Resources to Become Wholly Owned Subsidiary of Aya Gold & Silver
Under the proposed reorganization, Algold intends to exchange each Algold common share for one "Redeemable Share", which will be redeemed through the issuance of Aya shares. Algold shareholders will receive an aggregate of C$2,400,000 in Aya common shares, calculated using the five-day trailing volume-weighted average price of Aya common shares in the five trading days immediately before the issuance, registration, and delivery of Aya shares (the "Reorganization"). Upon completion of the Reorganization, Algold will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Aya and Algold shareholders will become shareholders of Aya.
The Reorganization and related proposal are expected to close on or around April 30, 2021 and are subject to a number of conditions precedent including the approval of the Proposal by the required majorities under the applicable legislation, the issuance of a Court order approving the Reorganization and the Proposal, and the approval of the issuance and listing by the TSX of the Aya shares relating to the Proposal and the Reorganization.
Should the proposal be accepted, the homologation of the proposal and the Reorganization would be heard at 8:45 am. on March 26, 2021, in courtroom 16.10 of the Montreal courthouse, in file number 500-11-059411-211.
