Buffalo Coal Corp. Announces Special Meeting of Shareholders for Going Private Transaction

Buffalo Coal Corp. Announces Special Meeting of Shareholders for Going Private Transaction

Buffalo Coal Corp. (TSXV: BUF) (the "Company") today announces that it intends to seek shareholder approval for a proposal to take the Company private at a special meeting of shareholders ("Shareholders") to be held on Monday, April 17, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. (Toronto time) (the "Meeting").

The Company proposes to complete the going private transaction by way of a share consolidation and purchase (the "Consolidation") of all common shares ("Common Shares"), other than the Common Shares held by Belvedere Resources DMCC ("Belvedere"), for cash consideration of CAD$0.01 per pre-Consolidation Common Share, for Common Shares held on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"), or R0.1339580per pre-Consolidation Common Share, for Common Shares held on the Alternative Exchange maintained by JSE Limited ("JSE"). The consideration offered in connection with the Consolidation is equal to the subscription price under the Company's recently completed rights offering, which was greatly undersubscribed. Upon completion of the Consolidation and repurchase of the resulting fractional Common Shares, Belvedere is expected to be the sole Shareholder of the Company, which will then be delisted from the TSXV and JSE. The Company will subsequently apply to the relevant securities regulatory authorities to cease being a reporting issuer.
