Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – July 25, 2022) – Centaurus Energy Inc. (TSXV: CTA) (the “Corporation” or “Centaurus“) announces that it successfully held and Annual General and Special Meeting of its shareholders on July 20, 2022. At the meeting, the shareholders approved the election of David Tawil, Steven Balsam and William Schubin and approved, adopted and ratified a 10% rolling stock option plan for the Corporation.
The shareholders also approved a resolution approving the consolidation all of the issued and outstanding Common Shares of the Corporation on an up to five to one (500:1) basis (the “Consolidation“). The resolution expires 15 months from the date of approval.
Under the Consolidation, for every 500 Common Shares currently held by a Shareholder (or such lesser number as may be applicable in the event that directors determine to employ a Consolidation ratio that is less than 500 to one (500:1) basis), each Shareholder will, as a result of the Consolidation, receive one Common Share after the Consolidation takes effect. There are currently 544,059,237 Common Shares issued and outstanding in the share capital of the Corporation. If the Consolidation is approved and the directors effect the Consolidation on a 500:1 basis, there will be an aggregate of 1,088,118 Common Shares issued and outstanding in the share capital of the Corporation, subject to rounding.
No fractional Common Shares will be issued in connection with the Consolidation. If, as a result of the Consolidation, a Shareholder would otherwise be entitled to a fraction of a Common Share, an adjustment will be made to the prior whole number of Common Shares and the Shareholder will not be entitled to any further consideration.
The Consolidation will not materially affect the percentage ownership in the Corporation of Shareholders even though such ownership will be represented by a smaller number of Common Shares. The Consolidation will merely proportionally reduce the number of Common Shares held by Shareholders.
Completion of the Consolidation and the ratio of the Consolidation will be subject to the prior approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“). Approval from the TSXV for the Consolidation is not assured. If the TSXV does not approve the Consolidation the Consolidation will not be implemented. If the TSXV imposes conditions or requires an amendment to the Consolidation ratio that are unacceptable to the directors of the Corporation, the directors may elect not to implement the Consolidation.
