TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/20/16 -- Eurotin Inc. ("Eurotin" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: TIN) is pleased to announce proposed shares for debt transactions (the "Shares for Debt Transactions") in which the Company proposes to issue up to 10,053,333 post-consolidation common shares (the "Post-Consolidation Shares") at a price of $0.15 per Post-Consolidation Share. As a condition to the Shares for Debt Transactions, the Company intends to complete a consolidation of its common shares on the basis of one Post-Consolidation Share for every ten common shares currently outstanding (the "Consolidation").
As part of the Shares for Debt Transactions, Mark Wellings ("Wellings"), the Company's Chief Executive Officer and President, has agreed to convert up to $1,200,000, consisting of approximately $1,100,000 currently owed to him and up to an additional $100,000 which may be advanced by him to the Company, in exchange for up to 8,000,000 Post-Consolidation Shares. All amounts to be converted by Wellings represent indebtedness for cash advances previously made by Wellings to the Company. The balance of the Shares for Debt Transactions ($308,000) are with arm's length service providers for amounts owing to them for services previously provided to the Company.
If the maximum number of Post-Consolidation Shares are issued pursuant to the Shares for Debt Transactions, Wellings will hold, directly and indirectly, 38.2% of the issued and outstanding Post-Consolidation Shares (on a non-diluted basis) and become a "Control Person" (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV")).
In accordance with the policies of the TSXV and Multi-Lateral Instrument 61-101 disinterested shareholder approval is required for the creation of a new Control Person and the issuance of the Post-Consolidation Shares to a related party, respectively. Disinterested shareholder approval will be sought at an Annual and Special Shareholders Meeting (the "Meeting"), which has been scheduled for February 24, 2016. At the Meeting, shareholder approval will also be sought for the Consolidation.
In addition to the shareholder approvals described above, completion of the Shares for Debt Transactions and the Consolidation are conditional upon obtaining TSXV approval. Any securities to be issued by the Company pursuant to the Shares for Debt Transactions will be subject to a four month hold period.
Wellings has a long-term view of the investment and may acquire common shares of the Company either on the open market or through private acquisitions or sell the common shares on the open market or through private dispositions in the future depending on market conditions, reformulation of plans and/or other relevant factors.
