VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 2, 2014) - Lincoln Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE:LMG)
("Lincoln" or the "Company") reports it proposes to consolidate the Company's common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for every ten (10) pre-consolidation common shares. In accordance with current TSXV policies, shareholder approval will not be required for the proposed consolidation. The proposed consolidation has been approved by the Company's board of directors.
On August 13, 2013, the Company had initially announced plans to consolidate the Company's common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for every five (5) pre-consolidation common shares; however, the Company now proposes to amend the consolidation ratio on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for every ten (10) pre-consolidation common shares as described above.
Management believes the share consolidation will provide the Company with greater flexibility in its ability to finance the Company and advance its projects. The Company currently has no plans to change its name in connection with the proposed share consolidation. The share consolidation will be subject to acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Company currently has an aggregate of 158,860,203 common shares issued and outstanding. It is anticipated that upon completion of the share consolidation, there will be approximately 15,886,020 common shares issued and outstanding, subject to any existing stock options being exercised prior to the effective date of the consolidation.
The Company currently has outstanding stock options exercisable to purchase an aggregate of 4,125,000 common shares at exercise prices ranging from $0.19 to $0.29. Upon completion of the share consolidation, there would be stock options outstanding to purchase an aggregate of 412,500 common shares at exercise prices ranging from $1.90 to $2.90, based on the current number of outstanding stock options.
The Company currently has no outstanding warrants.
The effective date of the consolidation will be disclosed in a subsequent news release. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the board of directors may, at its discretion, determine not to effect the consolidation.
