Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, July 12, 2013 /CNW/ - Sprott Resource Lending Corp. (the "Company" or "Sprott Resource Lending") (TSX:SIL) (NYSE MKT:SILU) announced today that it intends to delist its common shares from the Toronto Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange MKT ("NYSE  MKT") following completion of its previously announced plan of arrangement with Sprott Inc. (TSX:SII) (the "Arrangement"), which is expected to close on July 24, 2013, subject to the receipt of requisite shareholder and judicial approvals. The Company will also apply to cease to be a reporting issuer in each province and territory of Canada and deregister from the reporting requirements of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). The Company is taking these actions as a result of the consequences of the Arrangement, which include the fact that after closing the Arrangement, Sprott Inc. will hold all of the common shares of the Company. The Company does not intend to list its common shares on any other exchange.

Closing of the Arrangement is subject to the approval of shareholders of the Arrangement at the Company's annual and special meeting of shareholders (the "Meeting"), which is being held on July 18, 2013, and receipt of a final order from the Ontario Superior Court of Justice approving the Arrangement at a hearing scheduled for 10:00 a.m. (Toronto time) on July 19, 2013.

The Company intends to file a Form 25 with the the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on or about July 24, 2013 to delist its common shares from the NYSE MKT and to deregister the Company's common stock under the Exchange Act. The Company expects that the trading of its common shares on the NYSE MKT will be suspended on the date the Form 25 is filed, with the official delisting of the Company's common shares becoming effective ten days thereafter.  The Company shall also file a Form 15 with the SEC to suspend the Company's reporting requirements under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act. Upon filing of the Form 15, the Company will no longer be obligated to file certain Exchange Act reports with the SEC.
