TIMMINS GOLD/ALIO GOLD ANNOUNCES EFFECTIVE DATE OF NAME CHANGE, SHARE CONSOLIDATION AND RESULTS OF AGM
Timmins Gold Corp. has provided the following updates.
Name change and share consolidation
The name change to Alio Gold Inc. and a 1:10 consolidation of the company's common shares were approved at the 2017 annual general and special meeting of shareholders of the company held earlier today, and are now effective. Following the share consolidation, the number of outstanding securities of the company will be approximately 35,562,860 common shares. The common shares are expected to commence trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange on a postconsolidation basis on May 16, 2017, under the ticker symbol ALO on both exchanges.
Information for holders of common shares
The company has mailed a letter of transmittal to its registered holders of common shares, which must be completed and returned to Computershare Investor Services Inc. at the address specified in the letter of transmittal, together with share certificates for the preconsolidation common shares, in order to receive share certificates for the relevant number of postconsolidation common shares to which shareholders are entitled. Questions on how to complete the letter of transmittal, or requests for additional copies of the letter of transmittal, may be directed to Computershare at 1-800-564-6253 or by e-mail. A copy of the letter of transmittal may also be obtained from the SEDAR website or from the company's website.
Shareholders that hold their common shares through a broker, trust company or other intermediary do not need to complete and submit a letter of transmittal, as their intermediary will make arrangements on their behalf for their accounts to be updated for the relevant number of postconsolidation common shares that they beneficially hold.
All matters outlined in the management proxy circular were also approved. In addition to approving the name change (93.73 per cent votes for, 6.27 per cent votes withheld) and share consolidation (92.4 per cent votes for, 7.6 per cent votes withheld), shareholders also approved the re-election of all directors nominated in the 2017 management proxy circular.
