Vancouver, BC – Interra Copper Corp. (CSE: IMCX) (OTCQB: IMIMF) (FRA: 3MX) (“Interra” or the “Company”) announces its intention to consolidate its issued and outstanding common shares (“Common Shares”) on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Common Share for every nine (9) pre-consolidation Common Shares (the “Consolidation”). The Consolidation is expected to result in the number of issued and outstanding Common Shares being reduced from 75,495,903 pre-consolidation Common Shares to approximately 8,388,435 post-Consolidation Common Shares, subject to any rounding differences.
As the Consolidation will result in a more favourable share structure, Interra believes that the Consolidation will enhance the marketability of the Common Shares and facilitate additional financing to fund continued exploration of the Company’s Thane Property and general corporate development. With respect to its Thane property in north-central British Columbia (the “Thane Property” or “Thane”), Interra is nearing completion of the final geological report from last year’s exploration program and finalizing the planned 2022 work program. Management’s 2022 objectives will be to continue building the geological database for the bulk of the unexplored project areas and to generate further high-quality targets over Thane’s previously identified six highly-prospective areas, in pursuit of discovering economic bulk-tonnage copper gold resources.
“With continued strength in copper markets and results from our 2021 work program, we remain positive about the Thane Property. We substantially increased Thane’s geological database, and advanced understanding of geophysical and geochemical signatures with respect to mineral potential, rock structure, and alteration on the southern portion of the property (Cathedral area). In addition, surface mapping and sampling results were correlated to geology at depth with the maiden drill program at Cathedral. Additional high priority targets have been generated for follow up at Cathedral as well as a planned maiden drill program at Gail area” stated CEO and Director Jason Nickel.
In connection with the Consolidation, no fractional shares will be issued. If, as a result of the Consolidation, the holder of post-Consolidation Common Shares would otherwise be entitled to a fraction of a share, each fractional share following conversion that is less than one-half of a share will be cancelled and each fractional share that is at least one-half of a share will be rounded up to the nearest whole number. No cash consideration will be paid in respect of fractional shares.
The Consolidation is subject to the receipt of all required regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange. Further details regarding the Consolidation, including the effective date and the new CUSIP and ISIN for the post-consolidation Common Shares will be announced in a subsequent news release.
The Company does not intend to change its name or seek a new stock trading symbol from the Canadian Securities Exchange in connection with the Consolidation.
The Company also intends, subject to the voluntary forfeiture of stock options, to cancel approximately 7.7 million stock options on pre-consolidation basis, representing approximately 80% of all issued and outstanding stock options, as a part of this strategic restructuring. The exercise price of any stock options not cancelled and outstanding warrants, and the number of underlying Common Shares issuable thereunder, will also be proportionately adjusted upon completion of the Consolidation.
