Vancouver, British Columbia, October 19, 2023 – Canadian Palladium Resources Inc. (the “Company”) (CSE: BULL) (OTCQB: DCNNF) (FSE: DCR1) announces details of a proposed consolidation of its common shares. In accordance with the constating documents of the Company, the board of directors of the Company passed a resolution authorizing the consolidation of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company on a 10:1 ratio (the “Consolidation”).
The Company currently has 175,843,566 common shares issued and outstanding. Following the completion of the Consolidation and not taking into account any adjustments for rounding, the Company anticipates there will be approximately 17,584,357 common shares outstanding. Any fractional share will be rounded down to the nearest whole number. The Company does not intend to change its name or seek a new stock trading symbol from the CSE in connection with the Consolidation. The new CUSIP number will be 13646R509 and the new ISIN number will be CA13646R5096 for post Consolidation.
The Company will complete the necessary filings in order to give effect to the Consolidation as of October 25, 2023. Once completed, a letter of transmittal will be sent by mail to shareholders advising them that the Consolidation has taken effect and instructing them to surrender the certificates evidencing their common shares for replacement certificates representing the number of common shares to which they are entitled as a result of the Consolidation. Until surrendered, each certificate formerly representing common shares will be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of common shares to which the holder thereof is entitled as a result of the Consolidation.
The board of directors of the Company is of the view that the Consolidation will provide the Company with greater flexibility for future corporate activities, enhance the marketability of the common shares as an investment and lead to increased interest by a wider audience of potential investors, thereby increasing its ability to raise additional financing to fund operations in the near future.
