VANCOUVER, BC /ACCESSWIRE/April 20, 2022/ South Gobi Resources Ltd. (TSX:SGQ), (HK:1878) (“SudGobi“or the”Company“) announces that it will file an application (the “Subscription request“) on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V ») to list its common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange. Along with the above, the Company will also seek voluntary delisting (the “Request for voluntary delisting“) of its common shares of the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX“), subject to the TSX-V Company’s approval of the listing application.
Pursuant to Rule 19C.13A of the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong, the Company intends to submit a written notice to HKEX (the “Main registration request“) indicating, among other things, that it will be able to fully comply with the applicable listing rules in connection with the approval of the listing application and the entry into force of the listing application ( “Effective date“), and so that its current secondary listing on the HKEX will be converted to a primary listing (“Conversion“).
Reasons for applying for registration
The Board of Directors of the Company has determined that it is in the best interests of the Company to apply to list the common shares of the Company on the TSX-V and to voluntarily delist from the TSX, as a listing on the TSX-V offers listing requirements that better align with the Company’s current operational and financial situation, while providing shareholders with continued liquidity on an exchange recognized for its leadership in the registration of mining issuers.
If the Company’s listing application is approved by the TSX-V, the Company intends to take all reasonable and prudent steps necessary to list the Company’s common shares currently listed on the TSX with the TSX-V, and submit all waivers and make all arrangements necessary to effect the Conversion, without interruption or delay. There is, however, no guarantee that the TSX-V will approve the Company’s listing application. As of the date of this announcement, the Company is unable to provide an expected effective date for listing on the TSX Venture Exchange, but the Company will provide updates as further information becomes available. will be available.
The common shares of the Company will remain listed on the TSX while the listing application and the primary listing application are being reviewed by the TSX-V and HKEX, respectively. In addition, it is expected that the Company will not be required to seek shareholder approval for the delisting of its Common Shares from the TSX, as there would be an alternate acceptable market for the Company’s Common Shares at on or around the scheduled delisting date, assuming the Company’s application to list on the TSX-V is accepted.
Master Listing Application on HKEX
The Company intends to make a further announcement once the main listing application has been submitted, including information on, among other things, (a) additional details of the listing application and date of entry into force, (b) any exceptions, waivers and exemptions from strict compliance with the listing rules that it intends to request from the HKEX, and (c) the potential impact on shareholders and potential investors of any applicable transitional measures .
