Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 23, 2018) - Navasota Resources Inc. (TSXV: NAV.H) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that that it has entered into agreements to satisfy outstanding indebtedness owed to certain arm's length and non-arm's length creditors (the "Creditors') through the issuance of common shares of the Company (the "Debt Settlement"). Pursuant to such agreements, the Company intends to consolidate (the "Consolidation") its outstanding common shares on the basis of one post-consolidation common share for each five pre-consolidation common shares (each, a "Post-Consolidation Common Share") at its upcoming annual general and special meeting of shareholders, which is scheduled for June 5, 2018 (the "Shareholder Meeting"). If the Consolidation is approved, the Company plans to subsequently settle indebtedness of approximately $285,633 through the issuance of 5,712,660 Post-Consolidation Common Shares at a deemed price of $0.05 per Post-Consolidation Common Share.
Certain Creditors are considered a "related party" to the Company under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). Accordingly, the Debt Settlement between the Company and such Creditors are "related party transactions" under MI 61-101. However, these transactions are exempt from the formal valuation and majority of the minority shareholder approval set out in MI 61-101 since, at the time the transaction was agreed to: (i) the securities of the Company were not listed or quoted on one of the exchanges or markets specifically identified in MI 61-101; (ii) neither the fair market value of the securities to be distributed in the Debt Settlement nor the consideration to be received for those securities, insofar as the transactions involves interested parties, exceeded $2,500,000; and (iii) the Company has one or more independent directors and, at least two thirds of said independent directors approved the transaction, as required pursuant to sections 5.5 and 5.7 of MI 61-101.
The implementation of the Consolidation is subject to shareholder approval at Shareholder Meeting, and the Debt Settlement and Consolidation are also subject to the approval of the Tsx Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). The Post-Consolidation Common Shares to be issued pursuant to the Debt Settlement will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and a day from the date of issuance.
