Bald Eagle Gold Corp. (formerly Wolf Acquisition Corp.) (“Bald Eagle” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: WOLF.P) is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced Qualifying Transaction (the “Transaction”), as such term is defined under Policy 2.4 – Capital Pool Companies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”). The Transaction was completed by way of a three-cornered amalgamation under the federal laws of Canada, whereby a wholly owned subsidiary of Bald Eagle, prior to completion of the Transaction, amalgamated with CX One Inc. (“CX One”) and Frontera Gold Inc. (“Frontera”).
Mr. Sidney Himmel, President and CEO of the Company, comments: “We are pleased to complete the listing of the company on the TSX Venture Exchange, the leading exchange for the listing of resource companies globally. This listing will enable Bald Eagle to attract the capital and awareness required to advance its Hot Springs project in Nevada. Nevada was recently ranked by the Fraser Institute as the top mining jurisdiction in the world and Bald Eagle has secured a considerable acreage position at the intersection of the well recognized Battle Mountain and Getchell-Comstock gold trends. Through its joint venture interest, the project is currently beginning drilling with the objective of identifying an epithermal gold system. Furthermore, the listing also provides a currency to advance the Company´s strategy of identifying and acquiring advanced stage exploration projects in established mining jurisdictions. I would like to thank all parties involved in bringing together this listing and look forward to advancing the Company for the benefit of all stakeholders.”
Prior to completion of the Transaction, Bald Eagle changed its name from “Wolf Acquisition Corp.” and split its share capital on the basis of 1.2 common shares in the capital of the Company (“Common Shares”) for every 1 old Common Share held. The ISIN number of the Common Shares is CA0576971042.
As previously announced, prior to and in connection with the Transaction, CX One completed a non-brokered subscription receipt financing (the “Subscription Receipt Financing”) of 20,991,058 subscription receipts (“Subscription Receipts”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $2,518,926.96, plus interest earned thereon. Subsequently, the Subscription Receipts previously converted into units of CX One, with each unit consisting of one common share of CX One and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of CX One. In connection with the completion of the Transaction, each unit of CX One was automatically exchanged for one unit in the capital of Bald Eagle. Each warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.20 for a period of 24 months following the listing of the Common Shares on the Exchange, subject to adjustment and acceleration.
In connection with and pursuant to the terms of the Transaction, all outstanding securities of CX One were exchanged for equivalent securities of Bald Eagle on a 1:1 basis, and all outstanding securities of Frontera were exchanged for equivalent securities of Bald Eagle on a 3.5:1 basis. On completion of the Transaction, there are 102,147,063 Common Shares issued and outstanding, of which 90,411,062 were issued to former holders of CX One shares, Frontera shares and Subscription Receipts. Former CX One common shareholders hold approximately 34.04% of the outstanding Common Shares; former Frontera common shareholders hold approximately 33.92% of the outstanding Common Shares; former Subscription Receipt holders hold approximately 20.55% of the outstanding Common Shares; and previous Bald Eagle common shareholders hold approximately 11.49% of the outstanding Common Shares, each on an undiluted basis.
Further details regarding the Transaction can be found in the Company’s filing statement dated March 5, 2021 (the “Filing Statement”) filed under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com, and in prior press releases.
The parties to the Transaction have made their final submission to the Exchange. Final acceptance of the Transaction will occur upon the issuance of the Exchange’s final listing bulletin (the “Final Bulletin”). Subject to final acceptance from the Exchange, Bald Eagle will no longer be a capital pool company and will be classified as a Tier 2 issuer pursuant to Exchange policies.
The Common Shares are expected to commence trading on the Exchange on March 23, 2021 under the ticker symbol “BIG”.
Escrowed and Restricted Securities
In connection with the Transaction, certain principals of Bald Eagle have entered into a Tier 2 Value Security Escrow Agreement with the Exchange and Odyssey Trust Company (“Odyssey”), as escrow agent in respect of 22,670,001 Common Shares (the “Escrow Agreement”). Under the terms of the Escrow Agreement, 10% of such escrowed securities will be released upon issuance of the Final Bulletin with subsequent 15% releases occurring 6, 12, 18, 24, 30 and 36 months from closing.
In addition, certain non-principal former shareholders of CX One and Frontera are subject to seed share resale restrictions (“SSRR”). SSRRs are Exchange hold periods which apply where seed shares are issued to non-principals by private companies. The terms of the SSRRs are based on the length of time such shares have been held and the price at which such shares were originally issued. There are 30 non-principal former shareholders of CX One and Frontera who will hold an aggregate of 34,800,003 Common Shares that will be subject to a 36-month hold period. The Common Shares will be released on the same terms and conditions as the Common Shares held under the Escrow Agreement described above.
