Falco Closes the Sale of a Portfolio of Net Smelter Return Royalties

 

 

 

 

 

Falco Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:FPC) is pleased to announce that it has closed the previously announced sale to Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd of its portfolio of net smelter return royalties varying from 1% to 2%, for a cash consideration of CDN$700,000. The Royalties relate to, among others, properties known as Flavrian and Central Camp which are exploration properties surrounding the main Horne 5 properties.

 

Related Party Transaction

 

Osisko’s subsidiary, Osisko Development Corp. is Falco’s largest shareholder. Immediately prior to entering into the Royalty Transaction, Osisko had, directly or through ODEV, beneficial ownership of, or control and direction over, (i) 41,385,240 common shares, representing approximately 18.2% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Corporation, and (ii) 18,247,344 common share purchase warrants. In addition, Osisko holds a loan outstanding to the Corporation which is convertible into 31,992,975 common shares of the Corporation.

 

The Royalty Transaction is a “related party transaction” under Regulation 61-101 respecting Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“Regulation 61-101”). It is exempt from the requirements to obtain (i) a formal valuation and (ii) minority approval, pursuant to section 5.5(a) and 5.7 (a) respectively of Regulation 61-101, as the value of the Royalty Transaction represents less than 25% of the market capitalization of Falco.

 

The independent directors of the Corporation have approved the Royalty Transaction and the board members who are nominees or officers of Osisko or ODEV abstained from voting on the resolutions to approve such transactions.
