Khan Files Fiscal Year Ended September 30, 2016 Financial Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan. 4, 2017) - Khan Resources Inc. (CSE:KRI)(CSE:KRI.CN) ("Khan" or "the Company") announced today that it has filed its financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2016 on SEDAR and has posted these documents to its website www.khanresources.com.

Highlights for the year include:

Return of Capital - On November 10, 2016, the shareholders approved a distribution of $0.85 per share by way of a return of capital that was paid on November 29, 2016 to shareholders of record at November 22, 2016.

Liquidation of the Company - In conjunction with the approval of the $0.85 per share return of capital, the shareholders also approved a special resolution for the voluntary liquidation and dissolution of Khan. Pursuant to such liquidation, the winding up of Khan's remaining subsidiary, and the satisfaction of all liabilities including expenses of the winding up, a further distribution of cash will be made in one or more installments. Khan anticipates that any further distributions of cash as part of the winding up would aggregate between $0.01 and $0.08 per share

Notwithstanding shareholder approval of the special resolution, at any time until appointment of the liquidator, the board of directors will retain the discretion to discontinue the winding up if it determines that continuing with the winding up is no longer in the best interests of the Company or its shareholders.

Sale of Subsidiaries - On August 17, 2016, Khan Resources Bermuda Ltd. was sold to an independent third party. The sale included three other Khan subsidiaries, namely CAUC Holding Company Ltd. CAUC LLC and Khan Resources LLC. Prior to the sale, the Company's corporate structure had been simplified and fiscal year-ends for the Khan group of companies had been better aligned.

Having consulted with its various professional advisors, the Company had concluded that the above reorganization and the sale of Khan Bermuda and its subsidiaries would accelerate and maximize the shareholder cash distribution by simplifying the corporate structure and avoiding the need to wind-up and repatriate cash from these foreign subsidiaries in multiple jurisdictions and reducing or eliminating any risks to Khan associated with such subsidiaries.

International Arbitration Settlement - On May 18, 2016, the Company announced that it had received $70 million (U.S.) from the Government of Mongolia in settlement of all outstanding matters pursuant to the international arbitration award received by the Company on March 2, 2015.

The following table summarizes financial results of the Company for the years ended September 30, 2016 and 2015.
