VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International Cobalt Corp. (CSE:CO) (the “Company” or “International Cobalt”) announces that further to the news release dated December 13, 2021, the Company has terminated the business combination agreement with General Magnesium Corporation by mutual agreement of all parties. Following notice of the termination, it is expected that the Company will be reinstated for trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”) on October 14, 2022.
The Company also announces that it will be requesting a voluntary delisting (the "Delisting") of the common shares from the CSE due to prolonged weak market conditions, which would be in the best interests of its shareholders and the Company in order to preserve its current business and capital. The Company has determined that it must consider all measures necessary to preserve its business, including assessing cost cutting opportunities to preserve its working capital position. The cost of remaining a listed issuer is another factor that the Board of Directors has considered in determining that the best course of action for the Company would be to delist. Despite the Delisting, the Company will continue to be subject to ongoing disclosure and other obligations as a reporting issuer under applicable securities legislation in Canada. The Company is required to obtain the approval of its disinterested shareholders to approve the delisting of its common shares from the CSE. In seeking such disinterested shareholder approval, the Company shall exclude all votes attached to the common shares held by the directors, officers and insiders of the Company who own common shares, being an aggregate of 857,225 common shares.
The special shareholders' meeting requesting disinterested shareholder approval is scheduled for November 22, 2022. For additional details of the meeting, please refer to the Company's management information circular posted on its profile at http://www.sedar.com.
