("SpinCo" or "4Metals"), pursuant to which it will spin out (the "Spin-Out") all of its interest in its 100%-owned Duncan Lake project and 55%-owned Big Copper project (together, the "Spin-Out Properties") to shareholders of the Company (the "Shareholders") by way of a statutory plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") pursuant to the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia).
The Arrangement must be approved by the Supreme Court of British Columbia (the "Court") and by the affirmative votes of at least 2/3 of the Shareholders cast at the annual general and special meeting of the Company to be held on or around January 12, 2024 (the "Meeting"). Upon receipt of approval from the Shareholders and the Court, the Board will determine an effective date to complete the Arrangement.
Under the Arrangement, Shareholders as of the effective date will receive new common shares of Rokmaster (each, a "New Rokmaster Share") and common shares of SpinCo (the "SpinCo Shares") by way of a share exchange, pursuant to which each existing common share of Rokmaster (an "Existing Rokmaster Share") will be exchanged for one New Rokmaster Share and 0.125 of a SpinCo Share (or one SpinCo Share distributed for every eight Existing Rokmaster Shares held) rounded down to the next whole number of SpinCo Shares. As a result of the Arrangement, 4Metals will become a reporting issuer in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario.
Holders of options and warrants of Rokmaster will be entitled to receive, upon exercise of an option or warrant for the same aggregate consideration, one New Rokmaster Share and 0.125 of a SpinCo Share (rounded down to the next whole number of SpinCo Shares) in lieu of each Existing Rokmaster Share such holder otherwise would have been entitled to receive, subject to applicable adjustments pursuant to the Company's stock option plan, the relevant stock option agreements or certificates representing the warrants, as applicable.
