VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 16, 2012) - EurOmax Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:EOX) (OTCQX:EOXFF): ("Euromax" or the "Company") announces that it will proceed with a share consolidation of its issued and outstanding common shares, further to the approval of shareholders at the Company's annual and special general meeting held on 22 May, 2012. The Company's name and trading symbol will remain unchanged.
The consolidation will be effective from Wednesday 17 October 2012 and carried out on a basis of one (1) post-consolidation share for every three (3) pre-consolidation shares. As a result of the consolidation, the Company's currently outstanding 211,022,579 issued and outstanding common shares will be reduced to approximately 70,340,860 common shares. No fractional shares will be issued. Fractional share interests of 0.50 or higher arising from the consolidation will be rounded up to one whole common share and any fractional share interest of less than 0.50 will be cancelled.
Registered shareholders will be receiving a letter of transmittal from the Company's transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada, as soon as practicable after the effective date of the consolidation. The letter of transmittal will enable registered shareholders to exchange their old share certificates representing pre-consolidation common shares for new share certificates representing the post-consolidation common shares. Until surrendered, each share certificate representing pre-consolidation common shares will be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of whole post-consolidation common shares to which the holder is entitled as a result of the consolidation.
The exercise price and the number of common shares of the Company issuable under its outstanding options and warrants will automatically be adjusted upon implementation of the consolidation. There will be no requirement for option and warrant holders to exchange their certificates or take any other action. Any option or warrant holder wishing to know the exact number of shares and the adjusted exercise price of their option or warrant following consolidation should contact the Company.
