Vancouver, British Columbia – February 18, 2019 – Black Dragon Gold Corp.(TSXV: BDG; ASX: BDG)("Black Dragon" orthe "Company") announces that the Company's common shares without par value (the "Shares") will be voluntarily delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V") effective at the close of trading on February 28, 2019.
The Shares will continue to trade on the Australian Securities Exchange (the "ASX") as CHESS Depository Interests (or "CDIs") under the ASX Code "BDG".
Black Dragon determined to voluntarily delist from the TSX-V due to the following factors:
- The Company believes that the minimal trading activity of the Shares on the TSX-V no longer justifies the expense and administrative requirements associated with maintaining its dual listing;
- The majority of the Company's investors are Australian based. Accordingly, a single listing for the Company on the ASX will better serve investors and investments in the Company; and
- The Company's continuing ASX listing is expected to provide shareholders with a sufficiently liquid market.
Implications for holders on the Company's Canadian register
Shareholders who are registered on the Canadian register will receive a letter in relation to the delisting process shortly after the Shares have been delisted from the TSX-V.
In order to trade their holdings on the ASX, shareholders on the Company's Canadian register will need to convert their shareholdings to CDIs by completing and submitting the "Register Removal request – Canada to Australia CDIs" request form. The applicable form can be obtained from the Company's Canadian Share registry, Computershare Investor Services Inc. ("Computershare") by either:
- Downloading the following form: Register Removal Request - Canada to Australia CDIs; or
- Contacting Computershare's Global Transaction Unit at:
- Canada (toll free) at 866-277-2086;
- US (toll free) at 877-624-5999; or
- International +1-781-575-4086
For shareholders who hold their Shares through a broker or other intermediary which is a CDS participant, the CDS participant/broker must complete and submit the "CDI Issuance Form", or submit the CDI Issuance Instructions through xSettle on the shareholders behalf. Accordingly, shareholders who hold their Shares through brokers should contact their brokers for information on trading their holdings through the ASX.
Until a conversion of Shares to CDIs is effected, shareholders on the Company's Canadian register and beneficial shareholders holding their securities through a CDS participant broker will not be able to trade their holdings on the ASX and their Shares will remain on the Canadian Share register.
