Corsa Coal Adopts Shareholder Rights Plan
FRIEDENS, Pa., Dec. 17, 2021
FRIEDENS, Pa., Dec. 17, 2021 /CNW/ – ( ) (OTCQX: CRSXF) (“Corsa” or the “Company”), a premium quality metallurgical coal producer, today announced that its board of directors has adopted a shareholder rights plan (the “Rights Plan”) with immediate effect.
The adoption of the Rights Plan is intended to ensure, to the extent possible, that all shareholders of the Company are treated fairly in connection with any take-over bid for Corsa’s common shares and to protect against acquisitions of control of Corsa through purchases of common shares that are exempt from applicable Canadian take-over bid rules, also referred to as “creeping” take-over bids. The Rights Plan is substantially similar to shareholder rights plans adopted by other Canadian issuers and, while it was not adopted in response to any specific proposal or intention to acquire control of the Company, Corsa’s board of directors considered a number of relevant factors in connection with its adoption, including the potential for near-term pressure on the Company’s share price given the previously announced distribution by funds controlled by Quintana Capital Group of common shares of the Company representing approximately 45% of the outstanding common shares of the Company to the limited partners of such funds.
Subject to the terms of the Rights Plan, in the event that rights become exercisable under the Rights Plan, holders of the rights (other than the acquiring person and certain other customary parties, including parties acting jointly or in concert with the acquiring person) will be permitted to exercise their rights to purchase additional common shares of the Company at a 50% discount to the then prevailing market price of the common shares. Pursuant to the Rights Plan, one right attaches to each issued and outstanding common share.
The Rights Plan is effective immediately but is subject to ratification by shareholders of the Company at Corsa’s 2022 annual meeting of shareholders expected to be held in June 2022 and to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. If the Rights Plan is not ratified by Corsa shareholders on or prior to June 17, 2022 the Rights Plan will terminate and all rights issued thereunder will be cancelled. A copy of the Rights Plan will be filed under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
