Vancouver, Canada - Mawson Resources Limited (“Mawson”) or (the “Company”) (TSX:MAW) (Frankfurt:MXR) (PINKSHEETS: MWSNF) announces that the Company proposes to extend the term of an aggregate of 7,500,000 common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") that were issued in connection with the closing of a non-brokered private placement in 2016.
Each Warrant entitles holders to purchase one common share of Mawson (the “Shares”) at an exercise price of $0.60 per Share and are currently due to expire on December 2, 2018. The Company will make an application with the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "Exchange") to extend the expiry date of the Warrants by one year (the “New Expiry Date”), subject to an acceleration provision. The acceleration provision provides that in the event the Shares trade on the Exchange or, if such Shares are no longer listed on the Exchange, on such other stock exchange on which such Shares are listed, at a weighted average trading price of CDN$0.80 per Share for any twenty (20) consecutive trading-day period, the Company may accelerate the New Expiry Date of all, but not less than all, of the Warrants to the date that is thirty (30) days from the date of issue of a news release by the Company announcing such acceleration of the New Expiry Date. All other terms of the Warrants will remain the same.
As a director of the Company holds 25,000 warrants and a greater than 10% institutional shareholder holds 2,689,033 warrants, it is a requirement of Exchange policies that Mawson seek disinterested shareholder approval at the next annual meeting of shareholders to be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. As such, the proposed extension of all the Warrants by the Company is conditional upon receipt of both Exchange and disinterested shareholder approval.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
