HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / May 5, 2015 / Double Crown Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: DDCC), a fully reporting company, is pleased to announce that a commitment for payment in full of over $1 million has been received for the company's first order in a pilot program for strategic industrial minerals. The receipt of the signed purchase order for this shipment was previously announced on April 28th as part of an initial pilot program for the ongoing supply of the customer's oilfield drilling operation in Latin America. This first order represents one of multiple industrial commodity supply projects that Double Crown management has been developing over many months and more such orders are anticipated in the near term.
Double Crown has also commenced a consent solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation"). As described more fully in the Consent Solicitation Statement, dated April 27, 2015, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and mailed to the Company's stockholders as of the record date on April 27, 2015 (the "Statement"), the purpose of the Consent Solicitation is to:
(i) Elect five Board of Directors nominees for the ensuing year or, if earlier, until their successors are duly elected and qualified (the "Election of Directors Proposal")
(ii) Approve an amendment to the Company's articles of incorporation, as amended, to effect an increase in the Company's authorized capital stock, at the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors, from 500,000,000 shares to an amount not to exceed 1,000,000,000 shares, with the final amount of the increase to be determined at the discretion of the Company's Board; provided, however, that the increase in our authorized capital stock must be effective, if at all, on or before September 30, 2015 (the "Articles Amendment Proposal"),
(iii) Provide a non-binding advisory consent on executive compensation (the "Say-on-Pay Proposal"), and
(iv) Provide a non-binding advisory consent on the frequency of executive compensation advisory votes (the "Say-on-Frequency Proposal"and collectively with the Election of Directors Proposal, the Articles Amendment Proposal, the Say-on-Pay Proposal, the "Proposals").
Each of the Proposals, other than the Articles Amendment Proposal, will be adopted and become effective when properly completed consents are signed by the holders of a majority of the shares of common stock outstanding as of the record date. If the Articles Amendment Proposal is approved, the Board would have the discretion to elect, as it determines to be in the best interests of our company and its stockholders, to effect the Articles Amendment Proposal at any time before September 30, 2015. The Board may elect not to implement the Articles Amendment Proposal in its sole discretion. The Board believes that approval of a proposal granting this discretion to the Board provides the Board with appropriate flexibility to achieve the purposes of the raising of the authorized share limit, if implemented, and to act in the best interests of our company and its stockholders. None of the Proposals is subject to, or conditioned upon, the effectiveness of any or all of the other Proposals.
In order to effect an orderly restructuring of the Company's balance sheet and capital structure, and to finance the business plan, the Company has determined to attempt to raise the authorized share limit of its common stock. The purpose of restructuring the balance sheet is to provide sufficient shares to meet the Company's outstanding obligations, such as reserving sufficient shares to cover conversion of the Company's current and future financed convertible indebtedness to a level which the Company believes is more in line with a typical capital structure which would be more attractive to potential future investors and financial institutions. The Company also desires to have shares available to raise further capital if needed to achieve its business plan. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company has no obligation to issue such shares and there are no plans, proposals or arrangements currently contemplated by the Company that would involve the issuance of the newly authorized.
In order for the Proposals to be adopted, we must receive written consents signed by the holders of record of a majority of the shares of common stock outstanding as of April 17, 2015, the record date. The Company has set May 30, 2015 as the goal for submission of written consents.
A more comprehensive description of the Consent Solicitation can be found in the Statement and the related consent form (together, the "Solicitation Documents"). This current report on Form 8-K is for information purposes only and the Consent Solicitation is being made only by, and pursuant to the terms of, the Solicitation Documents.
