TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 12, 2013) - Sage Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SGX) ("the Corporation" ) has amended the previously announced share exchange agreement (see Press Release of Sept 23, 2013) with Global Resources Investment Ltd. ("GRIL"), an arm's length party to the Corporation.
GRIL is a UK-based, investment trust established to seek to exploit investment opportunities in the junior mining and natural resource sectors. GRIL's investment objective is to generate medium and long-term capital growth through investment in diverse portfolios of primarily small and mid-capitalized natural resources and mining companies which are listed various global stock exchanges.
GRIL is seeking admission of its ordinary shares (the "GRIT Shares") on the main market for listed securities on the London Stock Exchange ("LSE") and where it proposes to re-register as a public company and constituted as a UK Investment Trust with the name Global Resources Investment Trust Plc. ("GRIT"). The Corporation and GRIL have entered into a share exchange agreement (the "Agreement") whereby the Corporation would, assuming successful listing of the GRIT Shares on the LSE, subscribe for 178,816 GRIT Shares at a deemed value of £1.00 per GRIT Share in exchange for the issuance of 6,000,000 units of Corporation at deemed price of £0.0298 per unit (the "Transaction"). (This equals approximately $0.05 Canadian). Each unit would be comprised of one common share in the capital stock of the Corporation ("Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant ("Warrant") exercisable at a price of C$0.05 per warrant for a period of three years from the date of issue.
As at the date hereof, there are 123,231,245 Common Shares issued and outstanding. Upon completion of the proposed Transaction, GRIL would hold 6,000,000 Common Shares representing approximately 4.9 % of the Corporation's issued and standing Common Shares on a non-diluted basis.
Closing of the transaction requires the final approval of the TSX-V and LSE and receipt of all other necessary regulatory approvals in Canada and the United Kingdom.
