GGG Extends Offer Period While It Awaits Further Disclosures From Auzex

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 27, 2011) - GGG Resources plc ("GGG") (ASX:GGB)(AIM:GGG) has today extended the offer period of its off-market takeover offer for all of the ordinary shares in Auzex Resources Limited ("Auzex") for two weeks so that it is now scheduled to close at 5.00pm (Perth time) on Monday 20 June 2011 (unless further extended).

On 6 May 2011, Auzex announced three separate proposals; namely:

  • A demerger of its non-core exploration assets;
  • A proposed $25 million capital raising; and
  • Seeking a listing on the London AIM market.

This extension is to allow GGG and all other Auzex shareholders time to consider the details which Auzex should disclose in relation to these proposals.

With the release of Auzex's target statement on 19 May 2011, GGG expected that there would be further disclosure of the proposals, however, this did not occur. Auzex's target statement provided little additional information on the proposals.

The following documents are attached for immediate release to the market:

  • a letter which is being sent to Auzex shareholders explaining the extension; and
  • a formal notice of variation required in respect of the extension by the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth).
