Message: International PBX Ventures Ltd. Announces Proposed Share Consolidation and...
International PBX Ventures Ltd. ("PBX" or the "Company") (TSX.V:PBX) is pleased to announce that it is proposing a consolidation of its issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for every ten (10) pre-consolidation common shares (referred to as the "consolidation ratio"). In addition, the Company proposes to change its name to Chilean Metals Ltd. or such other name as may be approved by the Company's Board of Directors and applicable regulatory authorities.
The proposed consolidation and name change are subject to Shareholder and TSX Venture Exchange approval. If approval is obtained the proposed consolidation and name change would become effective at a date in the future to be determined by the Board of Directors when the Board considers it to be in the best interests of the Company to implement.
The Company currently has 160,813,747 common shares issued and outstanding and if the consolidation is approved, the Company will have approximately 16,081,374 common shares issued and outstanding. The exercise or conversion price of any outstanding stock options and warrants will be proportionately adjusted based upon the same consolidation ratio.
Terry Lynch, President and CEO stated: "The proposed share consolidation and name change is in line with the Board and Management's key objectives of re-branding, re-positioning the Company and putting in place a sustainable share structure. In addition, while not guaranteed the proposed consolidation may help to broaden new investor appeal for any future private placements, and may help to improve the overall market perception of the Company's stock."
The entire details of the proposed share consolidation and name change is included in the Information Circular to be mailed to all the PBX Shareholders of record as of October 29, 2013 and posted on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) in connection with the Annual General and Special Meeting of the Shareholders to be held on Tuesday, December 3, 2013.
PBX recently announced on October 11, 2013 that it has reached an agreement to sell its 100% owned Copaquire property to Teck Resources Chile Ltda. ("Teck"), a subsidiary of Teck Resources Limited for US$3,033,556 cash plus a 3% net smelter royalty (NSR) payable to PBX's wholly owned Chilean subsidiary, Minera IPBX Ltda. Additionally, Teck will have the option to buy back 1% of the NSR for US$3 million at any time. PBX also owns mineral rights through its subsidiary, Chilean Metals Exploration Ltd. ("Chilean Metals") on six 100%-owned properties comprising over 50,000 acres strategically located in the prolific IOCG ("Iron oxide-copper-gold") belt of Chile. Several of these projects are under review by third parties for possible purchase or joint venture.
