July 29, 2019 – Commerce Resources Corp. (TSXv: CCE, FSE: D7H) (the “Company” or “Commerce”) plans to complete a consolidation of its issued and outstanding common shares (the “Common Shares”) on the basis of one new common share (a “Consolidated Common Share”) for every ten currently-outstanding Common Shares (the “Share Consolidation”).
It is anticipated that the Share Consolidation will reduce the number of outstanding shares of the Company from 310,496,558 Common Shares to approximately 31,049,655 Consolidated Common Shares. The Board of Directors of the Company believes that the consolidation of the Common Shares will both enhance the marketability of the Company as an investment and better position the Company to raise the funds necessary to execute the Company’s business plan. The Share Consolidation is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSX-V”).
The Company does not intend to change its name or its current trading symbol in connection with the proposed Share Consolidation. The effective date of the Share Consolidation will be announced in a subsequent news release, anticipated within a few weeks.
No fractional Consolidated Common Shares will be issued as a result of the Share Consolidation. Shareholders who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fraction of a Consolidated Common Share will be rounded down to the nearest whole number of Consolidated Common Shares and no cash consideration will be paid in respect of fractional shares.
The exercise price and number of Common Shares of the Company, issuable upon the exercise of outstanding options and warrants, will be proportionally adjusted upon the implementation of the proposed Share Consolidation in accordance with the terms thereof.
