This time, Zara Resources, which trades on the Canadian National Stock Exchange under the symbol ZRI, has announced all share offers to acquire 100% of the issued capital of the following three junior resource companies:
Shareholder's of Visible Gold Mines Inc., (TSXV: VGD), would receive $0.05 per shares payable by 0.4167 shares of Zara for each Visible share. Based on a recent price for Zara of $0.12, and $0.025 for Visible, this is a premium of more than 200%.
Shareholder's of Greencastle Resources Ltd., (TSXV: VGN), would receive $0.14 per share payable by 1.1667 shares of Zara for each Greencastle share. Based on Greencastle's recent price of $0.06, this is a premium of 133%.
Shareholder's of Altai Resources Inc., (TSXV: ATI), would receive $0.17 per share payable by 1.4167 shares of Zara for each Altai share. Based on Altai's recent price of $0.085, this is a premium of 100%.
Assuming acceptance of the offer, Zara will have approximately 191.3 million shares outstanding, and a market capitalization of $23 million.
The enlarged Zara group of companies will have approximately $13.7 million in net cash and securities, after payment of all current liabilities. It will also have a portfolio of gold, nickel-copper, and oil & gas properties, located across Canada in Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, and also in Nevada, USA.
Danny Wettreich stated, "This is a dramatic and innovative simultaneous offer for three public companies, and is designed to offer the shareholders of these companies the opportunity of participating in the creation of a viable natural resource company led by the dynamic, experienced and innovative management team of Zara. I expect annual savings of approximately $1.2 million by putting these companies together."
According to the Zara announcement, over the last three years, these three targeted companies have seen share price declines ranging from 79% to 96%, while their directors have paid themselves a total of $2.5 million.
In addition, Zara believes that most of these shareholders are underwater, and can therefore establish a tax loss by accepting the takeover offer.
This bold move will undoubtedly have other Boards of Directors rethinking their current strategies.
