CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 4, 2012) -
NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF UNITED STATES SECURITIES LAW
Richmond Row Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:IVY.P) (the "Company" or "Richmond Row"), a capital pool company, is pleased to update its shareholders that it has entered into a binding definitive agreement dated June 28, 2012 (the "Definitive Agreement") with Gold Royalties Corporation ("Gold Royalties") to complete an arm's length business combination (the "Proposed Transaction").
Richmond Row intends for the Proposed Transaction (as more fully described in the Company's press release dated May 24, 2012) to constitute its Qualifying Transaction as an Investment Issuer, as set out in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). The Proposed Transaction is subject to certain conditions, including Exchange approval.
The Company has called an Annual General and Special Meeting (the "Meeting") in connection with the Proposed Transaction. The Meeting will be held at the Calgary offices of Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP at 1400, 700 - 2nd Street S.W., Calgary, Alberta on July 27, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. (Calgary time). In connection with the Meeting, the Company has mailed an Information Circular and Proxy Statement dated June 29, 2012 (the "Information Circular").
Copies of the Definitive Agreement and the Information Circular are available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Sponsorship of a "Qualifying Transaction" for a CPC is required by the Exchange unless exempt therefrom in accordance with the Exchange's policies. Richmond Row intends to apply for an exemption from the sponsorship requirements pursuant to the policies of the Exchange. If the exemption is not granted by the Exchange, then Richmond Row would be required to engage a sponsor.
At the request of the Company, trading in the securities of Richmond Row has been halted by the Exchange. Trading is expected to remain halted until, at the earliest, the completion of the Proposed Transaction.
