CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/13 -- Margaux Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MRL) ("Margaux" or the "Corporation") announces that at the special meeting of shareholders of the Corporation ("Shareholders") to be held on August 23, 2013 (the "Meeting"), Shareholders will be asked to consider and approve a potential consolidation of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Corporation ("Common Shares") on a basis of up to 10 pre-consolidation shares for each post-consolidation share, or such lesser ratio that the board of directors of the Corporation (the "Board"), in their sole discretion, may determine to be appropriate (the "Consolidation").
Although approval for a potential Consolidation is being sought at the Meeting, such a Consolidation would only become effective at a date in the future if the Board considers it to be in the best interests of the Corporation to implement such a Consolidation. The Corporation believes that a future Consolidation may enhance the marketability of the Common Shares as an investment and may facilitate future financings, as the Corporation is subject to the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") minimum pricing rules for financings. The special resolution will authorize the Board to elect not to proceed with the Consolidation if the Consolidation is not deemed to be in the best interests of the Corporation. The Consolidation is subject to Shareholder approval at the upcoming Meeting and to TSXV acceptance.
Assuming a consolidation ratio of 10 pre-Consolidation Common Shares for each post-Consolidation Common Share (the Board being permitted to consolidate on a lesser ratio in their sole discretion), the Consolidation would result in the 52,779,057 pre-Consolidation Common Shares that are currently outstanding being reduced to approximately 5,277,906 post-Consolidation Common Shares.
The name of the Corporation will not be changed in conjunction with the Consolidation.
