Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 23, 2023) – Pasofino Gold Limited (TSXV: VEIN) (OTCQB: EFRGF) (FSE: N07A) (“Pasofino” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that further to its news release dated November 21, 2022, the Company has completed the issuance of 122,989 common shares of the Company (the “Debt Shares“) at a price of $0.50 per share in settlement (the “Debt Settlement“) of $61,494.81 of directors’ fees owing to independent and non-executive directors (collectively, the “Debt“).
The TSX Venture Exchange has approved the Debt Settlement and by issuing the Debt Shares, the Debt has been extinguished.
The issuance of the Debt Shares to the directors constitutes a “related party transaction” as this term is defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101: Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Debt Shares nor the debt exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
All Debt Shares issued are subject to a statutory four (4) month hold period from the date of the issuance.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”) and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act, as amended, and application state securities laws.
