|Vancouver, BC, December 2, 2019 -- WestKam Gold Corp. (TSX-V: WKG) (the "Company" or "WestKam"), a junior mining exploration company, announces that it is proceeding with its proposed consolidation (the "Consolidation") of its common shares (the "Common Shares") on the basis of thirty- five (35) pre-consolidation common shares for one (1) post-consolidation common share. The Consolidation was previously approved by shareholders at a meeting held on October 31, 2019 and has been approved by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V").
The Board of Directors of the Company is of the opinion that it is in the best interests of the Company to consolidate the Common Shares at this time to enhance their marketability and liquidity as an investment.
Prior to the Consolidation, a total of 259,042,697 Common Shares in the capital of WestKam were issued and outstanding. Accordingly, once put into effect on the basis of thirty-five (35) pre-consolidation shares for one (1) post-consolidation common share, a total of approximately 7,401,220 Common Shares in the capital of WestKam are issued and outstanding. No fractional shares are being issued in connection with the Consolidation. The Consolidation became effective November 29, 2019.
The Company's Common Shares are expected to begin trading on the TSX-V on a consolidated basis under the same trading symbol (WKG) on December 4, 2019 at market open. The new CUSIP and ISIN numbers for the consolidated shares are 96041W207 and CA96041W2076, respectively. Shareholders who hold their shares through a securities broker or dealer, bank, or trust company will not be required to take any action with respect to the consolidation.
A letter of transmittal will be mailed to the registered holders of the Company's common shares, requesting that those shareholders forward their pre-consolidation share certificates to the Company's transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada, to be exchanged for new share certificates representing their common shares on a post-consolidation basis.
The Consolidation will also affect the Company's issued warrants at the effective date. At the time of the Consolidation, the exercise price and number of shares purchasable pursuant to all outstanding warrants will be adjusted to reflect the thirty-five-for-one Consolidation.
