Toronto, Canada, December 19, 2014 - Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ELO; FSE: P2Q) (“Eloro” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce proposed shares-for-debt transactions (the “Proposed Transactions”) in which Eloro proposes to issue up to 5,810,000 common shares (“Common Shares”) (of which 950,000 could be issued to insiders of the Corporation) at a price of $0.05 per share in connection with the repayment of unsecured loans made to Eloro. The Proposed Transactions are being undertaken by Eloro in order to conserve capital and improve the Corporation’s balance sheet while global financial markets remain turbulent and financing junior exploration companies remains difficult.
The Proposed Transactions would create a new “Control Person” pursuant to applicable securities legislation as it is proposed that Eloro issue Cartier Iron Corporation (“Cartier”) 4,760,000 Common Shares at a price of $0.05 per share in connection with the settlement of $238,000 in unsecured loans made by Cartier to Eloro.
The following is a breakdown of the debt proposed to be settled with each related party (“Related Party”), and the number of Common Shares expected to be issued to each of them:
|Name of Insider|
|Relationship to the Corporation||Loan to be Settled|
|Shares to be Issued as Payment|
|Thomas Larsen||Director and Officer||10,000||200,000|
|Alexander Horvath||Director and Officer||10,000||200,000|
|Duster Capital Corp.||Private corporation controlled by Dusan Berka, a Director of the Corporation||5,000||100,000|
In accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”), disinterested shareholder approval is required for both the creation of a new Control Person and the issuance of the Common Shares to insiders who are deemed to be Related Parties. Disinterested shareholder approval will be sought at a Special Shareholders Meeting (the “Special Meeting”) the Corporation has scheduled for January 22, 2015. At the Special Meeting, disinterested shareholders will be entitled to vote on the Proposed Transactions.
The Corporation has received conditional approval for the Proposed Transactions from the TSXV but completion of the Proposed Transactions is subject to disinterested shareholder approval and final approval from the TSXV. Any securities to be issued by Eloro pursuant to the Proposed Transactions would be subject to a 4-month hold period.
