VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 27, 2013) - Running Fox Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE:RUN)(PINKSHEETS:RFXRF) - Steven Schurman, CPG, Director, advises that due to the condition of the capital markets the Company will take measures to enhance corporate goals and improve shareholder value including joint-ventures, the sale of all or part of current projects, mergers, amalgamations, and a share consolidation and name change.
The share consolidation, or share rollback, would be in a ratio of up to twelve old shares to one new share. (share roll back max 12 to 1)
The number of post-consolidation shares issued and outstanding would be dependent on the specific ratio that the common shares will be consolidated.
The rational for a consolidation of its issued and outstanding common shares follows a review of the junior resource capital markets, and an assessment of the Company's growth and strategic objectives, and would provide significant benefits to the company and its shareholders.
Following a consolidation, any share payments as consideration for potential acquisitions would be enhanced, and a reduced total outstanding share count would assist the Company to remain competitive with other competing resource issuers.
A consolidation would not reduce the inherent value of the Company, but it may positively affect its ability to achieve objectives.
A shareholder would still own the same percentage of the Company as prior to a share consolidation.
Specifics of name change and other transactions would be announced in due course as applicable. Completion of a name change/consolidation is subject to shareholder and TSX-V approvals. Fractional post-consolidation common shares would not be issued, fractional shares resulting from a consolidation would be rounded down to the nearest whole number and no cash consideration will be paid in respect of fractional shares.
