Karora Resources Inc (TSE:KRR), formerly known as RNC Minerals Corp (TSE:RNX), announced that a previously announced share consolidation was effective as the markets opened on Friday, and that it had partially monetized its Orford Mining position for investment purposes.
In a statement, the mining group focused on becoming a high quality, gold producer in Western Australia, said the consolidation of the shares will come into effect at the start of trading on the basis of one post-consolidation share for four and a half pre-consolidation shares.
The company said prior to the consolidation, around 648,700,031 shares were issued and outstanding. Following the consolidation, 144,155,562 shares will be outstanding. Any fractional shares resulting from the consolidation will be rounded up to the next higher whole number, said the company.
As a result of the consolidation, Karora Resources said outstanding warrants will be “proportionately adjusted” such that four and a half warrants are now exercisable for one post-consolidation share at an exercise price of $2.25 per share. Similar adjustments will be made to other convertible securities.
The consolidation has been approved by the Toronto Stock Exchange.
