VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 6, 2014) - Clear Mountain Resources Corp. ("Clear Mountain" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CY) announces that in conjunction with its proposed acquisition of certain oil and gas assets situated in Osage County, Oklahoma as more particularly disclosed in the Company's news releases of November 5, 2013 and December 13, 2013 (the "Acquisition") the Company has called a special meeting of its shareholders for Tuesday, January 28, 2014 to approve, by way of special resolution, a continuance of the Company's jurisdiction of incorporation from the Province of British Columbia to the State of Delaware (the "Continuance").
Upon completion of the Acquisition, it is expected that all of the Company's significant assets and operating business will be located in the United States as well as a substantial number of the Company's directors and senior management. As such, the board of directors (the "Board") believes that the achievement of the Company's strategic goals will be enhanced by the Company's Continuance as a U.S. corporation as many of the Company's future potential customers, lenders and service providers following completion of the Acquisition will be based in the United States and the Continuance will help to level the playing field with future competitors, most of whom will be U.S. corporations. The Board also believes that domiciling in the United States may enhance shareholder value over the long term with greater acceptance of the Company in the capital markets and improved marketability of the Company's shares. The Board chose the State of Delaware to be the Company's new domicile because it believes the more favorable corporate environment afforded by Delaware will help the Company compete more effectively with other public companies, many of which are incorporated in Delaware, in raising capital and in attracting and retaining skilled, experienced personnel. For these and other reasons as more particularly described in the Company's notice of special meeting and information circular, both dated December 30, 2013, copies of which are available for review on SEDAR, the Board proposes to continue the Company to Delaware immediately prior to closing of the Acquisition.
Further to the Company's news release dated December 5, 2013, the Company has completed an initial tranche of its non-brokered working capital private placement. The Company has issued a total of 5,345,868 common shares at a price of C$0.20 per share for gross proceeds of C$1,069,174, the net proceeds of which will be used to fund due diligence costs and professional fees related to the Acquisition and for general working capital and corporate expenses. A finder's fee of $10,500 cash and 52,500 finder's warrants was paid in connection with the initial closing, each finder's warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.25 for a period of one year. All securities issued in connection with the initial closing are subject to a four month and one day hold period expiring April 19, 2014.
The Company has also granted stock options to directors, officers and consultants to purchase up to an aggregate of 534,000 common shares at a price of $0.20 per share for a period of five years.
