Green River Gold Corp. (CSE: CCR) (OTC Pink: CCRRF) (the "Company" or "Green River") announces that it has entered into a Shareholder Rights Plan Agreement (the "Rights Plan") with Computershare Investor Services Inc., as rights agent.
The Rights Plan is being adopted to ensure that, to the extent possible: (i) the shareholders of the Company and the Board have adequate time to consider and evaluate any unsolicited bid for the common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares"); (ii) the Board has adequate time to identify, develop and negotiate value-enhancing alternatives, if considered appropriate, to any such unsolicited bid; (iii) the Company's shareholders are treated fairly in connection with any take-over bid made for the Common Shares; and (iv) the Board can take steps to enhance shareholder value if an unsolicited bid is received. The Rights Plan has not been adopted in response to, or in anticipation of, any pending unsolicited bid to acquire control of the Company.
Pursuant to the Rights Plan, one right (a "Right") will be issued and attached to each Common Share of the Company outstanding as at November 10, 2021 (the "Effective Date"). A Right will also attach to each Common Share of the Company issued after the Effective Date. The Rights Plan includes "Permitted Bid" provisions which will prevent the dilutive effects of the Rights Plan from operating if a take-over bid is made by way of a take-over bid circular that, among other things, is made to all shareholders, remains open for a minimum of 105 days and is accepted by a specified proportion of the Common Shares held by independent shareholders. Subject to certain exceptions as set out in the Rights Plan, the Rights Plan will be triggered by an acquisition or the commencement of an acquisition, other than pursuant to a Permitted Bid, of 20% or more of the outstanding Common Shares.
While the Rights Plan is effective immediately, the Company has elected to make the Rights Plan subject to confirmation by the Company's shareholders. The Company will be seeking shareholder confirmation of the Rights Plan at the next annual and special meeting of the shareholders of the Company, expected to be held in December, 2021. A summary of the principal terms of the Rights Plan will be included in the management information circular to be sent to shareholders in connection with such meeting and a complete copy of the Rights Plan will be available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. If the Rights Plan is not approved by the shareholders, it, together with the outstanding rights, will terminate and cease to be effective.
