CALGARY, ALBERTA – Crown Point Energy Inc. (“Crown Point” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: CWV) is pleased to announce that it has completed a consolidation of the Company’s common shares (the “Common Shares“) which was approved by the shareholders of the Company on December 1, 2017. Trading on a post-consolidation basis will commence on the TSX Venture Exchange on or about January 2, 2018.
The Company filed articles of amendment on December 31, 2017 to effect the consolidation of the Common Shares on the basis of a consolidation ratio of 10 pre-consolidation Common Shares to 1 post-consolidation Common Share (the “Consolidation“). No fractional Common Shares will be issued pursuant to the Consolidation. In lieu of any such fractional Common Shares, each registered shareholder of the Company otherwise entitled to a fractional Common Share following the implementation of the Consolidation will receive the nearest whole number of post-Consolidation Common Shares.
The Company currently has 329,115,444 Common Shares issued and outstanding. After giving effect to the Consolidation, the Company will have approximately 32,911,544 Common Shares issued and outstanding (subject to rounding of fractional Common Shares).
The Company intends to mail a letter of transmittal to registered shareholders to be used for the purpose of surrendering their certificates representing the pre-Consolidation Common Shares to the Company’s registrar and transfer agent in exchange for new share certificates representing whole post-Consolidation Common Shares. After the Consolidation, existing share certificates representing pre-Consolidation Common Shares will: (a) constitute good delivery for the purposes of trades of post-Consolidation Common Shares; and (b) be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of post-Consolidation Common Shares to which the shareholder is entitled as a result of the Consolidation. No delivery of a new share certificate to a registered shareholder will be made until the shareholder has surrendered the shareholder’s existing share certificates.
Non-registered shareholders holding Common Shares through an intermediary (a securities broker, dealer, bank or financial institution) should be aware that the intermediary may have different procedures for processing the Consolidation than those that will be put in place by the Company for registered shareholders. If shareholders hold their Common Shares through an intermediary and they have questions in this regard, they are encouraged to contact their intermediaries.
The Company’s name will not be changed in conjunction with the Consolidation.
