- What happens to my shares when the Corporation completes the proposed reverse share consolidation?
The Corporation requested approval from shareholders at the Annual and Special Meeting of the Shareholders, held on June 19th 2019, to amend its articles to effect a consolidation of all of its issued and outstanding common shares (the “Common Shares”), on the basis of a consolidation ratio to be selected by the Board within a range between seven hundred fifty (750) pre-consolidation Common Shares for one (1) post-consolidation Common Share and one thousand two hundred fifty (1250) pre-consolidation Common Shares for one (1) post-consolidation Common Share (the “Share Consolidation”), effective as at the discretion of the Board. Liminal proceeded with such share consolidation following receipt of the necessary shareholder and other approvals.
If the Share Consolidation would otherwise result in a person with an interest in Common Shares being entitled to post-consolidation Common Share(s) and to fractional post-consolidation Common Share(s), the Corporation intends, pursuant to the Share Resolution:
(i) in the event that a shareholder would be entitled to receive a fractional Common Share after the Consolidation that is equivalent to less than 75% of a whole post-consolidation Common Share, the Corporation intends, pursuant to the Share Resolution, for the Corporation to buy the fraction and send payment to the holder (except for amounts of C$5 or less, which shall be retained for the benefit of the Corporation). The price to be paid for a fraction will be based on the Average Closing Price and shall result in payment for each whole pre-consolidation Common Share held prior to the Share Consolidation (other than the pre-consolidation Common Shares consolidated into post-consolidation Common Shares) which together constitute the fraction; or
(ii) in the event that a shareholder would be entitled to receive a fractional Common Share after the Consolidation that is equivalent to 75% or more of a whole post-consolidation Common Share, the Corporation intends, pursuant to the Share Resolution, for the Corporation to round up to one whole Common Share.
