NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 7, 2013) - Micron Enviro Systems, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MSVS), soon to be officially known as Britannia Mining [pending FINRA Approval], announced today that the company is preparing the appropriate documents and filings to formalize last week's shareholder ratification.
The 'Special Meeting of Stockholders,' held on January 31st, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. (EST) in New York City at the law offices of Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP, solidified the joint efforts of Micron and Britannia's management teams to complete the proposed merger. Each order of business raised (name change, capital restructuring, reduction of authorized shares and the post-split issuance) was met with an approval by shareholders who voted either by proxy or in person by ballot.
"We were delighted with the outcome of the vote," stated Kenneth Roberts, newly appointed CEO of Micron Enviro Systems. "We are pleased to have travelled to the U.S. to meet with those shareholders who came out to cast their ballots in person and speak with us directly. Being present makes all the difference; and while we must remain diligent -- focusing on day-to-day operations, we will strive to maintain a responsible level of accessibility to shareholders."
Management expects that investors will be looking at a newly organized company sometime within the second quarter of this year. In order to formally effectuate the merger, management will have to complete a few milestones. These include inter alia: 1) filing a certificate of merger with the state, 2) obtaining a new cusip number, 3) filing with FINRA, and, 4) setting an 'X-Date.' This entire process is anticipated to take a minimum of 70 days subject to FINRA completing its procedures.
At the 'X-Date,' Micron Enviro Systems shall officially become Britannia Mining should FINRA approve the name change. The new company's shares will be restructured to reflect a 60 to 1 reverse split. At that time, all those stockholders who hold between 1 share and 19,980 shares of the company's common stock (as of the X-Date), will be rounded up to maintain equity ownership post reverse. This 'Round-Up' program was instituted by the company in an attempt to preserve the value of every shareholder as management's intention is to build value, "not take it away," as previously stated by Mr. Roberts.
Roberts concluded, "As we proceed, every decision will be earnest, progressive and as best as possible, be in favor of the company and our stakeholder's interests. We believe the elements of this merger are reasonable, constructive for growth and well suited for the long-term success of this company. We trust that our shareholders will find confidence in this new management team and together we will continue to have a shared interest in the future of this company and its overall value."
