Anthem Resources Inc.: Boss Power Closes Settlement with Government
June 2, 2014 (Source: Marketwired) — Anthem Resources (TSX VENTURE:AYN) (“Anthem“) is pleased to report that Boss Power Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BPU) (“Boss Power“) has closed on its settlement agreement with the province of British Columbia dated October 19, 2011. As a result, the province paid $30,356,422.67 in full and final settlement of Boss Power’s lawsuit against the province for the deemed expropriation of the Blizzard uranium deposit and related claims.
The settlement proceeds were paid out pursuant to a binding letter agreement announced April 1, 2014, between Boss Power and Morning Star Resources Ltd., Magic Dragon Ventures Ltd. and Anthony Beruschi (collectively, the “Beruschi Parties“), which required the settlement proceeds be disbursed as follows: (i) $3,600,000 to Anthony Beruschi; (ii) $2,500,000 to Boss Power for interim funding purposes; and (iii) the balance of the settlement proceeds held in trust pending completion of a divisive reorganization of Boss Power by way of plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the “Arrangement“) as more particularly described in the Anthem and Boss Power press releases dated April 1, 2014.
The Arrangement will effect a division of Boss Power by way of a newly incorporated spin out corporation (“Newco“) that will receive $0.322 of cash per share for shareholders that elect to become shareholders of Newco rather than Boss Power. It is expected that all Beruschi Parties will elect to become shareholders of Newco. Other Boss Power shareholders that do not elect to become shareholders of Newco will continue to be shareholders of Boss Power, which will have as its primary assets the balance of the proceeds from the settlement, estimated to have a cash value of approximately $0.35 per share after the completion of the Arrangement.
The completion of the Arrangement is subject to various conditions, including approval of Boss Power shareholders, approval by the British Columbia Supreme Court, regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and customary closing conditions for a transaction of this nature. The Arrangement is now expected to close by August 2014.
