Trigon Metals Inc. (TSX-V: TM; OTCQB: PNTZF) (“Trigon” or the “Company”) announces that the TSX Venture Exchange has approved the Company’s application to extend the term of (i) 3,781,250 common share purchase warrants previously set to expire on September 20, 2023 with an exercise price of $0.50, (ii) 6,889,499 common share purchase warrants previously set to expire on September 24, 2023 with an exercise price of $0.45, and (iii) 735,999 common share purchase warrants previously set to expire on October 8, 2023 with an exercise price of $0.45, each to March 31, 2024.
A total of 892,500 warrants are held by parties who are considered to be “related parties” of the Company. Therefore, the amendment of such warrants constitutes a “related party transaction” as contemplated by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions, and TSXV Policy 5.9 – Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions. However, the exemptions from formal valuation and minority approval requirements provided for by these guidelines have been relied upon as the fair market value of the warrants held by insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.
