PROSPECT PARK CAPITAL ANNOUNCES SHARE CONSOLIDATION
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 31, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Prospect Park Capital Corp. (the “Company”) (TSXV:PPK), is pleased to announce that its shareholders have voted at the annual and special meeting of shareholders (the “Meeting”) on March 13, 2020 in favour of all matters put to shareholders at the Meeting, including the share consolidation. For more information on the matters voted on at the Meeting, please see the Company’s management information circular dated February 10, 2020 (the “Circular”), which is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Accordingly, effective April 2, 2020 (the “Effective Date”) at market open, the Company will effect the consolidation (the “Consolidation”) of its common shares (the “Common Shares”) on the basis of one (1) new post-Consolidation Common Share for every five (5) pre-Consolidation Common Shares. The Consolidation has been accepted by the Exchange.As a result of the Consolidation, the 9,819,117 Common Shares currently issued and outstanding will be reduced to approximately 1,963,823 Common Shares on a post-Consolidation basis. No fractional Common Shares will be issued pursuant to the Consolidation. In the event that a shareholder would otherwise be entitled to a fractional Common Share in connection with the Consolidation, the number of Common Shares issued to such shareholder shall be rounded down to the next greater whole number of Common Shares, if the fractional entitlement is equal to or greater than 0.5 and shall, without any additional compensation, be rounded down to the next lesser whole number of Common Shares if the fractional entitlement is less than 0.5.The Consolidation will affect shareholders uniformly, including holders of outstanding securities convertible into or exercisable for Common Shares (namely, the outstanding incentive stock options) on the Effective Date. The exercise price, number and exchange basis of the stock options on the Effective Date will be adjusted proportionally to reflect the Consolidation.Registered shareholders will be required to exchange their share certificates representing pre-Consolidation Common Shares for new share certificates representing post-Consolidation Common Shares. The registered holders of Common Shares will be sent a transmittal letter by the Company’s transfer agent, Computershare Investor Services Inc. The letter of transmittal will contain instructions on how to surrender Common Share certificate(s) representing pre-Consolidation Common Shares to the transfer agent. The transfer agent will forward to each registered shareholder who has sent the required documents a new Direct Registration Advice (DRS Advice) representing the number of post-Consolidation Common Shares to which the shareholder is entitled. Until surrendered, each share certificate representing pre-Consolidation Common Shares of the Company will be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of whole post-Consolidation Common Shares to which the holder is entitled as a result of the Consolidation. Non-registered shareholders holding Common Shares through an intermediary (such as a securities broker, dealer, bank or financial institution) should be aware that the intermediary may have different procedures for processing the Consolidation. If shareholders hold their Common Shares through an intermediary and they have questions in this regard, they are encouraged to contact their intermediaries.The information in this news release includes certain information and statements about management’s view of future events, expectations, plans and prospects that constitute forward looking statements.
