VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 20, 2022 / Fabled Silver Gold Corp. ("Fabled" or the "Company") (TSXV:FCO)(OTCQB:FBSGF)(FSE:7NQ) wishes to announce that it has further amended the payment schedule under its option agreement (the "Option Agreement") with Golden Minerals Company ("GMC") (NYSE American and TSX:AUMN) with respect to the Santa Maria Project.
Pursuant to the terms of the amended Option Agreement, in order to acquire the Santa Maria Project, Fabled is now required make the final US$2,000,000 payment under the Option Agreement (US$1,000,000 of which was previously due on December 4, 2022, and the remainder of which was previously due in four equal quarterly installments beginning on March 31, 2023) as follows:
Final Installment Payment Due Date
On or before January 31, 2023
On or before March 31, 2023
On or before June 30, 2023
On or before September 30, 2023
On or before December 31, 2023
On or before March 31, 2024
On or before June 30, 2024
On or before September 30, 2024
As consideration for the amendment Fabled will, no later than February 28, 2023, issue to GMC that number of common shares of Fabled that are equal to a value of US$210,000 (as converted to CAD$ at the Bank of Canada Daily Rate published on the business day immediately prior to the date that such common shares are issued) at a price per common share equal to the greater of (i) the 5-day weighted average closing trading price of the Company's common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") on the five trading days prior to the date of issuance of such shares (ii) or its Discounted Market Price (as such term is defined in the policies of the TSXV) at close of trading on December 19, 2022.
The terms of the amendment remain subject to the approval of the TSXV.
In addition the Company announces that it has mailed meeting materials in connection with a special meeting of shareholders of the Company to be held on January 10, 2022 (the "Meeting'') to consider a resolution approving a consolidation (the "Consolidation Proposal") of the Company's outstanding common shares (the "Common Shares") on the basis of up to one (1) post consolidation Common Share for every ten (10) pre-consolidation Common Shares.
In the opinion of management, the current share structure of the Company may make it more difficult for the Company to attract business opportunities or the additional equity financing required to maintain the Company or to allow for the funding of its ongoing operations and business. Management is of the opinion that a consolidation of the Common Shares may increase its flexibility and present additional opportunities with respect to potential business transactions, including equity financings, if determined by the board of directors of the Company (the "Board") to be necessary.
Approval of the Consolidation Proposal will provide the Board with discretion to determine the actual consolidation ratio within the above stated range and whether to proceed with any consolidation at all. The approval of the Consolidation Proposal does not mean that a consolidation will occur, as the Board will have the discretion not to proceed with a consolidation if it is deemed to be in the best interests of the Company not to do so.
The Company currently has 215,446,649 Common Shares issued and outstanding. Following the completion of a consolidation, the number of Common Shares of the Company issued and outstanding will depend on the consolidation ratio selected by the Board. The following table sets out the approximate number of Common Shares that would be outstanding after the completion of a consolidation at the ratios suggested below, and if such consolidation were to be effected as at the date hereof:
Selected Proposed Consolidation Ratios(1)
Approximate Number of Outstanding Common
1 for 2
1 for 3
1 for 5
1 for 7
1 for 10
- The ratios above are for illustrative purposes only and are not indicative of the actual ratio that may be adopted by the Board.
- The exact number of Common Shares outstanding after the Consolidation will vary based on the elimination of fractional shares, and certain other factors.
- Based on the number of outstanding Common Shares as at the date hereof, being 215,446,649 which is subject to change prior to the date any consolidation is effected.
The Board is recommending that shareholders approve the Consolidation Proposal at the Meeting. The Company is not expected to change its name or trading symbol in conjunction with any consolidation; however, it may be required to apply for a new ISIN and CUSIP number for any post consolidated Common Shares. The exercise price and number of Common Shares issuable pursuant to the exercise of any outstanding convertible securities, including stock options and warrants, will also be adjusted in accordance with the Board's chosen consolidation ratio if a consolidation is effected pursuant to the Consolidation Proposal, if approved.
Any consolidation that the Board decides to effect is subject to the approval of the Consolidation Proposal at the Meeting and any required regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSXV.
