Texada Proposes Share Consolidation
June 7, 2012
GUELPH, ONTARIO—(Marketwire – June 7, 2012) – Texada Software Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TXS) (“Texada” or the “Company”) announces that the shareholders of the Company will be asked to consider and, if thought appropriate, approve a special resolution authorizing the Company to consolidate its issued and outstanding common shares (the “Common Shares”) on the basis of one (1) new Common Share for five (5) old Common Shares (the “Consolidation”) along with other items of business to be presented at its annual & special meeting of shareholders to be held on June 28, 2012 in Toronto, Ontario (the “Meeting”).
The Company is proposing the Consolidation in order to position its stock price in order that a broader range of global investors can be active in the stock and to reduce transaction costs for the Company and its investors. Additionally, some institutional investors and investment funds are reluctant to, or prohibited by their business articles from, investing in lower-price stocks listed on cross border exchanges and brokerage firms may be reluctant to recommend lower-priced stocks to their clients. Through a share consolidation, the Company anticipates that its shares will be available to more potential investors, although there can be no assurances this will happen.
The proposed Consolidation would result in the number of issued and outstanding Common Shares of the Company being reduced from the currently outstanding 63,405,184 Common Shares to 12,681,036 Common Shares.
In order to be adopted, the resolution authorizing the Consolidation (the “Consolidation Resolution”) must be passed by the affirmative vote of at least 66 2/3% of the votes cast by shareholders at the Meeting. The Consolidation will also be subject to the approval by the TSX Venture Exchange. The Consolidation Resolution will also give the Board of Directors of Texada the authority to revoke such resolution and not proceed with the Consolidation.
For more information on the proposed Consolidation and other matters to be addressed at the Meeting, shareholders are encouraged to refer to the Company’s Management Information Circular and proxy materials, copies of which are being mailed to shareholders and filed under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com.
