BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 25, 2016) - BC Moly Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:BM) (the "Company" or "BC Moly") announces that its Board of Directors, subject to shareholder and TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") approval, has approved the re-pricing of a total of 600,000 options to purchase common shares ("Options") to an amended exercise price of $0.05 per Option (the "Re-Pricing"). The 600,000 Options to be re-priced were issued on December 9, 2015 with an original exercise price of $0.10. The closing price of the Company's common shares on the Exchange on October 19, 2016 (the last day in which common shares of the Company were traded), prior to the approval of the Re-Pricing, was $0.05. 83,000 options issued on November 23, 2012 are outstanding with an exercise price of $1.00, all of which will expire on November 23, 2017 and there will be no change to the terms of these options.
The Re-Pricing of the Options will be submitted for Exchange approval shortly and shareholder approval will be sought at the Company's upcoming Annual and Special General Meeting to be held on December 2, 2016. The Re-Pricing of the Options is subject to the approval of a simple majority of the Company's shareholders excluding votes attached to common shares beneficially owned by Insiders of the Company to whom the Options have been granted and associates of those Insiders. Prior to the Company's receipt of Exchange approval and shareholder approval, none of the Options may be exercised at the revised price.
The Re-Pricing of the Options to insiders is undertaken to attempt to ensure that the objectives of the Company's stock option plan are fulfilled and to compensate management, who have accepted a significant reduction in their salaries in order to preserve the Company's treasury; and directors, who receive no cash compensation.
