Vancouver, British Columbia - TheNewswire - November 5, 2019 - Fengro Industries Corp. (TSXV:FGR) ("Fengro" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent respecting a potential reverse takeover of the Company (the "Transaction") by Elemental Royalties Limited ("Elemental") which would result in the change of the Company's business from mining to carrying on the business of Elemental, being investing in royalties over mining projects. The final structure and terms of the Transaction have not yet been finalized.
Prior to entering into a definitive binding agreement, the Company intends to complete a non-brokered private placement financing of common shares for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $600,000 at $0.005 per share (the "Placement") followed by an anticipated minimum 10:1 consolidation. The majority of the proceeds of the Placement will be used to repay existing Company's creditors in an effort to eliminate outstanding Company debts. The completion of the consolidation will occur irrespective of the completion of the Transaction.
The indicative terms of the non-binding letter of intent entered into by Fenrgo and Elemental on November 4, 2019 contemplate that (i) the Company will complete a consolidation of its outstanding share capital at a rate yet to be determined, (ii) the outstanding stock options of Elemental will be exchanged for stock options of Fengro at the same exchange ratio determined for the Transaction, and (iii) upon completion of the Transaction, the directors of the Company will be replaced by nominees of Elemental. Completion of the Transaction will also be subject to the completion of the sale of the Company's Brazilian assets on the terms previously announced by the Company. It is anticipated that a financing will be undertaken in connection with the Transaction, but the terms of such financing have not been determined and no broker has been engaged in connection with such potential financing.
The previously announced disposition of the Company's Brazilian assets to Geofoscal Comercio, Industria, Representacoes e Transporte de Produtos Agropecuarios Ltda. was approved at the Company's shareholders meeting on October 18, 2019. The Company anticipates that the transaction will close in or about late November, 2019.
Completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, Exchange acceptance and if applicable, disinterested shareholder approval. Where applicable, the Transaction cannot close until the required shareholder approval is obtained. There can be no assurance that the transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
