WINNIPEG, MB – Bird River Resources Inc. (CSE:BDR) (“BDR” or the “Company“) announces its plans to consolidate all of the Company’s issued and outstanding common shares (the “Share” and, collectively, “Shares“) on the basis of twelve (12) to one (1) (the “Consolidation“). The Consolidation was approved by special resolutions of shareholders at the Company’s annual general and special meeting held on September 25, 2020.
Effective November 17, 2020, with a record date of November 18, 2020, the Company expects to begin trading the Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange on a post-Consolidation basis under its existing name and ticker symbol. The new CUSIP and ISIN for the Shares is 090823204 and CA0908232048, respectively.
Prior to the Consolidation, the Company had 116,002,334 pre-consolidation Shares issued and outstanding. Following the Consolidation, the Company has approximately 9,666,861 post-consolidation Shares issued and outstanding. In the event that the Consolidation would otherwise result in the issuance to any shareholder of a fractional post-Consolidation Share, no fractional post-Consolidation Common Shares shall be issued and the number of post-Consolidation Shares issuable to such shareholder shall be rounded down to the next lower whole number. Except for any change resulting from the rounding described above, the change in the number of Shares outstanding that would result from the Consolidation will cause no change in the stated capital attributable to the Shares.
A letter of transmittal will be mailed to registered shareholders providing instructions to surrender the certificates evidencing the pre-consolidation Shares held in exchange for replacement certificates or Direct Registration Advice representing the number of post-consolidation Shares to which they are entitled as a result of the Consolidation. Until surrendered, each certificate representing pre-consolidation Shares will be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of whole post-consolidation Shares to which the holder thereof is entitled as a result of the Consolidation. Shareholders who hold their pre-consolidation Shares in brokerage accounts or in “street name” are not required to take any action to surrender or exchange the pre-consolidation Shares so held.
