Lomiko to Adopt Shareholder Rights Plan at October 30, 2014 AGM
August 7, 2014 (Source: Marketwired) — LOMIKO METALS INC. (TSX VENTURE:LMR)(PINKSHEETS:LMRMF)(FRANKFURT:DH8B) (Europe: ISIN: CA54163Q1028, WKN: A0Q9W7) (the “Company”) announces that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) has approved the adoption of a shareholder rights plan (the “Plan”). The Plan is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and shareholder ratification within six months of its adoption. The Corporation will seek shareholder ratification at its annual and special meeting of the shareholders scheduled to be held on October 30, 2014.
Lomiko is not adopting the Plan in response to any specific proposal to acquire control of its outstanding securities. The Plan will be similar to plans adopted by other Canadian companies and ratified by their shareholders. It is not the intention of the Plan to entrench management or prevent a change of control of Lomiko to the detriment of shareholders. The Plan will not apply to takeover bids that meet certain requirements including that the bid be made by way of a takeover bid circular and be left open for at least 60 days so as to ensure that shareholders will have an adequate opportunity to assess the merits of any such bid.
The Plan has been designed to encourage the fair and equal treatment of shareholders in connection with any takeover bid for Lomiko’s outstanding securities, and will provide the board of directors with additional time to assess the advantages and disadvantages of any particular offer, and to seek out alternative proposals in the best interests of all shareholders.
If ratified, the Plan will have an initial term which will expire at Lomiko’s annual general meeting of shareholders to be held in 2017; the Plan may also be reconfirmed and extended at that annual general meeting and at every third annual general meeting thereafter. If ratified as disclosed above, a copy of the new rights plan will be available for viewing on SEDAR and may also be obtained from Lomiko subsequent to its 2014 annual general meeting of shareholders.
