Golden Arrow Agrees to Repurchase Common Shares
Golden Arrow Resources Corporation (TSX-V: GRG, FRA: GAC (WKN: A0B6XQ), the "Company" or "Golden Arrow") announced today that it has entered into a Share Sale and Purchase Agreement with one shareholder to repurchase for cancellation 8,047,000 of its common shares ("Shares") at a price of $0.30 per Share, representing 14.56% of the Company's issued and outstanding Shares. The Company shall pay to the selling shareholder an aggregate purchase price of $2,414,100. The Company has obtained an independent fairness opinion, confirming that the proposed transaction is fair. Following completion of the repurchase and cancellation of the Shares, the Company will have 47,216,655 issued and outstanding shares.
The Company has agreed to the repurchase because the 8,047,000 Shares are held by one shareholder, and the Company believes that the repurchase of the Shares is in the best interests of the Company. The Company believes that the purchase of these Shares for cancellation will increase the proportionate interest of, and be advantageous to, all remaining shareholders. The Company has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange, but the closing of the transaction is subject to final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company is also proceeding with the repurchase of a further 5,393,000 shares for cancellation, pursuant to a notice of dissent received from another shareholder.
