Not for Dissemination in the United States or for distribution to U.S. Newswire Services
September 18, 2013, Toronto, Ontario – Corsa Coal Corp. (TSXV: CSO) (“Corsa” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that an updated version of the Company’s Investor Presentation is now available on its website at www.corsacoal.com. This Investor Presentation, dated September 2013, has been updated to include information on the Company’s recent transaction with Quintana Kopper Glo Investment, LLC and was presented by Corsa’s management following the formal portion of the Company’s annual and special meeting.
The Company is also pleased to announce that shareholders voted in favour of all items of business brought before them at the Company’s annual and special meeting of shareholders (the “Meeting”) held today.
At the Meeting, the following nine nominees set forth in the management information circular of Company dated August 19, 2013 were elected as directors of the Company (the “Board”) to hold office until the close of the next annual meeting of the Company’s shareholders: Corbin J. Robertson III, John H. Craig, Alan M. De’ath, George G. Dethlefsen, Keith D. Dyke, Michael Harrison, Robert Scott, Daniel D. Smith and Ronald G. Stovash. In addition, Ernst & Young LLP, Chartered Accountants, were re-appointed as auditors of the Company. Shareholders also approved and ratified the Company’s amended and restated stock option plan, in accordance with the requirements of the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”).
The Company also received shareholder approval at the Meeting for a potential future consolidation of the Company’s issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of up to 20 pre-consolidated shares for each post-consolidation share, or such lesser ratio that the Board, in their sole discretion, may determine to be appropriate (the “Share Consolidation”). The Board believes it may be in the best interest of the Company to consolidate its common shares, and such a consolidation may enhance their marketability as an investment and could facilitate additional financings in the future. Although approval for the Share Consolidation has been obtained, such a Share Consolidation would only become effective at a date in the future to be determined by the Board when the Board considers it to be in the best interest of the Company to implement such a Share Consolidation. The Board has the authority to elect not to proceed with the Share Consolidation at any time if the Share Consolidation is not deemed to be in the best interest of the Company, in its sole discretion. The Share Consolidation is also subject to TSXV acceptance.
