Margaret Lake MCTO revoked; company mulls rollback

2022-12-22 16:22 ET - News Release

Mr. Yari Nieken reports


Margaret Lake Diamonds Inc. has received a revocation of its management cease trade order as of Dec. 21, 2022, from the B.C. Securities Commission. The company has filed the required records, and the cease trade order is revoked.

The board is also notifying shareholders of a proposed consolidation of Margaret Lake's outstanding common shares on a one-for-up-to-10 basis as may be determined by the board of directors of the company in its sole discretion subject to regulatory approval.

The primary objective for Margaret Lake's board to pursue a share consolidation is to provide greater flexibility in any future acquisitions and financings the company may wish to complete. In particular, in light of the current market conditions, management believes it will be beneficial to the current shareholders to have issued share capital made more attractive to future investors. Additionally, an increase in per-share trading price of the common shares following the share consolidation may reduce certain transaction costs for investors when trading in the common shares.

In determining whether to seek a share consolidation, the board also considered a number of other market and business factors deemed relevant, as well as general capital market and economic conditions. The proposed share consolidation is part of Margaret Lake's overall strategy to drive long-term shareholder value and to increase its profile as the company continues to grow and evolve.
