AgriMinco Corp.: Annual and Special Meeting to Approve Proposed Share Consolidation and Other Matters

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 5, 2014) - AgriMinco Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ANO) ("AgriMinco" or "Company") announced today that, at its next annual and special meeting of shareholders (the "Meeting") scheduled to be held December 4, 2104, it will be asking shareholders to consider, and, if deemed appropriate, to approve, a special resolution approving an amendment to the Corporation's articles to consolidate its issued and outstanding common shares (the "Consolidation") on the basis of one post-consolidation common share for each 20 pre-consolidation common shares. The Company's name will remain unchanged post-Consolidation. The principal effects of the Consolidation would be that the number of common shares issued and outstanding would be reduced from 164,990,751 common shares as of November 4, 2014 to approximately 8,249,538 common shares. The Consolidation is subject to shareholder approval as well as to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance.

The Board of Directors believes that it is in the best interests of the Company to reduce the number of outstanding common shares by way of the Consolidation. The potential benefits of the Consolidation include greater investor interest, reduction in shareholder transaction costs, improved trading liquidity and greater investor interest.

Further information

Full details of the Consolidation are set out in the Company's management information circular dated November 4, 2014 available at www.sedar.com.

Commenting on this announcement, Johan Slabber, CEO of the Company said that; "The share consolidation is in line with the Company's strategy of pursuing attractive value enhancing investments, which would be facilitated by the shareholder approval for such consolidation. Agriminco has announced several new initiatives to this end and the consolidation is a further step in the restructuring resulting in a Company that has access to cash, is largely debt free and the management team's focus on cash generating opportunities."
