TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – June 4, 2013) – VVC Exploration Corporation (“VVC” or the “Company“) (TSX VENTURE:VVC) is pleased to announce that, further to its news releases of April 12, 2013 and May 1, 2013, it is progressing in its due diligence investigations of Camex Mining Development Group Inc. The parties are in the process of negotiating the definitive agreements pursuant to which the Company intends to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Camex, in exchange for the issuance of 59,900,000 common shares of VVC at closing, subject to adjustments, if any, as mutually agreed upon based on due diligence (the “Transaction“).
The Transaction is set to close shortly after the upcoming Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders (“AGM”) of shareholders of the Company. Closing of the Transaction will be subject to, among other things, the satisfactory completion of VVC’s due diligence investigations and the receipt of all necessary consents and approvals, including the approval of the shareholders of both VVC and Camex and the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The AGM is scheduled for 10:30 am on Tuesday, July 30, 2013 in the Toscana I Room of the Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites – Montréal Airport, 700 Avenue Michel Jasmin, Dorval, Québec H9P 1C5. The Record Date for voting and receiving notice of the AGM has been set at June 24, 2013. The proxy material will be mailed to Shareholders on or about July 3, 2013 and will contain the details of the meeting.
The Company’s Transfer Agent will be mailing proxies to the Registered Shareholders (holding physical share certificates) and a Voting Instruction Form (VIF) to the NOBO Shareholders (who have consented to having their broker release the details of their shareholdings to the Company). Shareholders will be able to vote online, by fax or by mail. The OBO Shareholders (who have requested to remain anonymous) may, at the discretion of their broker, receive a proxy or a VIF mailed by the Broker or his agent. Shareholders receiving a VIF will be required to submit their VIF in such time that it is received at least 48 hours before the meeting, and if they wish to attend the AGM and vote personally, they must appoint themselves as proxyholder. Shareholders may want to contact their broker to verify whether they are on the NOBO or OBO list and, if desired, request a change of their status before the Record Date.
