CHILLIWACK and SURREY, British Columbia, Oct. 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Garmatex Holdings Ltd. (having changed its name from Oaxaca Resources Corp.; the “Company”) and Garmatex Technologies, Inc. (“Garmatex”) are jointly pleased to provide the following update respecting the pending statutory arrangement as between the Company and Garmatex which was originally announced on March 16, 2016 (the “Arrangement”). Pending satisfaction of the closing conditions and the court and securityholder approvals, Garmatex will become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company and the securityholders of Garmatex will become securityholders of the Company.
Status of Arrangement
The proposed Arrangement is commonly referred to as a reverse take-over (“RTO”) and effectively, upon closing, Garmatex shareholders will hold more than 50% of the post-closing outstanding shares of the Company, not including the shares to be issued by the Company as part of the concurrent Company financing. Upon closing of the Arrangement Agreement Garmatex shareholders will receive one share in the Company for each post-share consolidation Garmatex share (the share consolidation will be on a one new share for five old shares basis). The shares of the Company received by Garmatex shareholders will be “restricted securities” as defined under Rule 144(a)(3) of the U.S. Securities Act (the “Act”) and will be subject to a 12-month hold period from the date that the Company files “Form 10 information” with the SEC and the Company is compliant with its reporting obligations with the SEC. In addition, each post-Garmatex share consolidation share purchase warrant will be issued a replacement share purchase warrant in the Company and all outstanding post-Garmatex share consolidation stock options are to be cancelled on or prior to the effective time of the Arrangement.
Assuming the Arrangement closing conditions and the court and securityholder approvals are satisfied in the next 45 to 60 days; and which are presently being worked on; the Company and Garmatex anticipate completing the RTO within the next 60 days.
The Company and Garmatex will continue in the coming weeks to update their shareholders with information about the RTO, the progress with the concurrent Company financing and updates with respect to Garmatex’s business plan going forward.
The foregoing summary of the terms of the Arrangement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the Arrangement Agreement which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on April 14, 2016.
The securities to be issued pursuant to the Arrangement and the concurrent Company financing will not be and have not been registered under the Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. In addition, any such securities to be issued pursuant to the Arrangement and the concurrent Company financing will be “restricted securities” as defined under Rule 144(a)(3) of the Act and will contain the appropriate restrictive legends as required under the Act and any other applicable securities laws.
