BALMORAL RESOURCES LTD. ANNOUNCES RECEIPT OF INTERIM COURT ORDER WITH RESPECT TO PROPOSED ACQUISITION BY WALLBRIDGE MINING COMPANY LIMITED
Balmoral Resources Ltd. has been granted an interim order by the Supreme Court of British Columbia in connection with the previously announced (see the news release of March 2, 2020) business combination between Balmoral and Wallbridge Mining Company Ltd. The interim order authorizes Balmoral to proceed with various matters, including the holding of a special meeting of Balmoral securityholders to consider and vote on the proposed plan of arrangement whereby Wallbridge proposes to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Balmoral.
The proposed transaction
On March 2, 2020, the parties entered into a definitive arrangement agreement whereby, subject to the terms and conditions of the arrangement agreement, Wallbridge will acquire all of the Balmoral common shares on the basis of 0.71 of a Wallbridge common share for each Balmoral common share.
Benefits of the transaction
The proposed transaction will result in one of the best-financed junior exploration and development companies in Canada. It will combine the gold and nickel assets of the two companies, including the parties' highly prospective district-scale gold exploration and development projects in Quebec along the Detour gold trend, under one management team, to more efficiently move them forward. Further information on the benefits to the Wallbridge and Balmoral shareholders can be found in the joint press release dated March 2, 2020, filed on each of the parties' respective SEDAR profiles
Balmoral special meeting
The special meeting of the Balmoral securityholders to consider and vote on the proposed transaction will be held on May 7, 2020, in Vancouver, B.C., subject to any changes which may result from the current global pandemic situation (none of which are currently contemplated). The record date for the meeting has been set as March 27, 2020. Additional information concerning the proposed transaction and the special meeting of Balmoral securityholders will be included in a management information circular, which will be mailed to securityholders in early April. Additional information with respect to the circular and the special meeting will be posted on the Balmoral website as it becomes available.
