Zara Take-Over Bids Cease Trade Order
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - September 16, 2013) - On Friday, September 13, 2013, following a contested hearing , the Bureau de Decision et de Revision (Quebec) ("BDR") issued its decision and cease trade order on the Zara Resources Inc. (CNSX: ZRI) ("Zara") simultaneous bid for Visible Gold Mines Inc. (TSXV: VGD), Greencastle Resources Ltd (TSXV: VGN) and Altai Resources Inc. (TSXV: ATI) pending correction and translation of all offer documents into French and review by the Autorité des marchés financiers ("AMF").
"Zara's novel and innovative multiple bids engaged the interest of the AMF and defensive arguments from 3 teams of expensive lawyers from the targets, Visible, Greencastle and Altai. Zara was nearing completion of the translation processes at the time of the hearing" said Danny Wettreich, Zara's Chairman and CEO. "We welcome the input of the AMF and recognize the merit of providing enhanced disclosure offer documents to long suffering target shareholders. Zara will be filing the complete French versions of the offer documents, originally scheduled for Monday, September 16, 2013, upon satisfaction of the terms of the order of the BDR and look forward to review by the AMF. As a result of this delay, upon re-filing the offers will be extended and shareholders of all target companies will be notified of the new expiry date in due course." Mr Wettreich concluded.
