VOLT ENERGY AND ROUGHRIDER CAPITAL ANNOUNCE COMPLETION OF ARRANGEMENT
Volt Energy Corp. and Roughrider Energy Corp. have completed the previously announced plan of arrangement
under the Business Corporations Act with Volt's
securityholders, effective as at 12:01 a.m. PT on March 13,
Overview of arrangement
Pursuant to the arrangement, among other things, Volt has: spun out all of the shares of
Roughrider in order to separate Volt's oil and gas properties in
southeastern Saskatchewan from its energy and metal assets,
consolidated its common shares on a one-new-for-four-old basis, reclassified and redesignated the common shares as Class A common shares, created a new class of common shares of the company,
and distributed to the shareholders of the company one new Volt share for every one
Class A share held and two common shares of Roughrider for
every one Class A share held.
Volt and Roughrider will now operate as two separate companies with Volt operating as a mining
exploration company focused on the energy metal assets, which include Volt's interest in the
Temiskaming property and the Lac Saint Simon property, and Roughrider operating as an
investment company holding the oil and gas assets. The management of Roughrider intends to seek
the listing of the Roughrider shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange, if
Roughrider qualifies as an investment company under the policies of the CSE.
As a result of the arrangement, Roughrider has become a reporting issuer in each of British
Columbia and Alberta.
Immediately following the completion of the arrangement, there are 15,195,698 Roughrider
shares issued and outstanding. Shareholders of Volt immediately prior to the effective time
received an aggregate of 100 per cent of the outstanding Roughrider shares.
"We are very pleased to have finally completed the spinout of Roughrider as it will allow Volt to
become focused on the development of its existing energy metal properties, as well as identify and
acquire new advanced stage assets," states Lewis Dillman, Volt's chief executive officer. "The listing
of Roughrider as an investment company on the CSE is a priority in the
second quarter of 2018, and this will allow our existing shareholders to enjoy the benefit of two
publicly traded investments."
