TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 12, 2013) - Liberty Mines Inc. (TSX:LBE) will consolidated its common shares on the basis of one new common share for every 50 common shares outstanding effective as of market open on August 13, 2013.
Following the share consolidation, Liberty Mines will have approximately 4,129,547 common shares outstanding.
A letter of transmittal has been sent by mail to shareholders advising that the share consolidation has taken effect and instructing shareholders to surrender the certificates evidencing their common shares for replacement certificates representing the number of common shares to which they are entitled as a result of the consolidation. Until surrendered, each certificate will be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of common shares to which the holder thereof is entitled as a result of the consolidation.
The share consolidation was approved by the shareholders of Liberty at the annual general and special meeting held on July 11, 2013. Further details regarding the share consolidation are contained in the Company's Information Circular dated May 22, 2013, which has been filed under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
In addition, Liberty announces Mr. G. Scott Moore has been appointed to the board of directors, replacing Mr. Parviz Farsangi. Subsequent to his appointment as a member of the Liberty Mines board of directors, Mr. Farsangi was appointed as an officer and director of Jien International Investments Limited, which holds approximately 60% of the outstanding Liberty Mines common shares. As a result of his appointment to Jien International, Mr. Farsangi was deemed to not be independent of Liberty Mines pursuant to applicable securities laws. Accordingly, to increase the independence of the board of directors, Mr. Moore has been appointed in Mr. Farsangi's stead. Mr. Moore is an experienced business executive with 20 years experience in the resource and durable goods sector. He is the former CEO of Franc-Or Resources Corp, the former CEO of Dacha Strategic Metals Inc. and the former Vice President of Sulliden Gold Corporation Ltd. He serves as a director of a number of resource companies. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Toronto and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management.
