TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 11, 2016) - Goldeye Explorations Limited (TSX VENTURE:GGY) ("Goldeye") announces that it has obtained an interim order of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in connection with its proposed plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") with Treasury Metals Inc. ("Treasury") previously announced on September 1, 2016. The interim order provides for, among other things, the holding of a special meeting (the "Special Meeting") of the holders of common shares of Goldeye (the "Shareholders") to approve the Arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario). The Special Meeting is scheduled to be held at the offices of Stikeman Keeley Spiegel Pasternack LLP, 200 Front Street West, Suite 2300, Toronto, Ontario M5V 3K2 on November 15, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. (Toronto time). The record date for determining Shareholders entitled to receive notice of and vote at the Special Meeting was fixed at the close of business on September 26, 2016.
As previously disclosed, Goldeye entered into an arrangement agreement with Treasury pursuant to which Treasury will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Goldeye and, upon closing, Goldeye will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Treasury. Goldeye's directors and senior officers have agreed to support the Arrangement and vote their common shares in favour of the Arrangement. The Board of Directors of Goldeye has previously approved the Arrangement and has unanimously recommended that Shareholders approve the Arrangement. In accordance with the Notice and Access rules adopted by the Ontario Securities Commission and the Canadian Securities Administrators under NI 54-101, Goldeye is sending its proxy-related materials ("Meeting Materials") to Shareholders using the Notice and Access method. Therefore, although Shareholders still receive the proxy or voting instruction forms in paper copy, the information circular and the notice of meeting will not be physically delivered. Instead, Shareholders may access or download the Meeting Materials from the link at www.goldeye.ca/specialmeeting or may also access them from SEDAR at www.sedar.com under Goldeye's filed documents. Goldeye believes that that this delivery method will expedite the receipt of the Meeting Materials by Shareholders, reduce its printing and mailing expenses, and reduce the environmental impact of disposing of the Meeting Materials after it is no longer useful.
Registered holders or beneficial owners may request paper copies of the notice meeting and information circular booklet be sent to them by postal delivery at no cost to them. Requests may be made up to one year from the date the Meeting Materials are posted on Goldeye's website. In order to receive a paper copy of the Meeting Materials, please call toll free at 1-866-600-5869. If you have questions concerning Notice and Access, please call Goldeye's registrar and transfer agent, TSX Trust Company, at 1-866-600-5869.
The completion of the Arrangement is subject to certain conditions, including the receipt of the requisite approval from the Shareholders, the final approval (the "Final Order") of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice at an application which is scheduled for November 18, 2016, final acceptance by the respective stock exchanges on which Goldeye and Treasury trade, and other closing conditions customary in transactions of this nature. If all necessary approvals are obtained and the conditions to the completion of the Arrangement are satisfied or waived, it is currently anticipated that the Arrangement will be completed on or about November 22, 2016.
