Hunter Submits Change of Business Filing Statement
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 22, 2020) - Hunter Oil Corp. (TSXV: HOC) (OTCQB: HOILF) (FSE: RWPN) ("Hunter" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, in connection with the Company's previously announced change of business pursuant to which the Company will become a Tier 2 Technology Issuer (the "Change of Business"), the Company's filing statement (the "Filing Statement") is now filed and available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
The Company expects the Change of Business, including the Company's previously announced forward-split of common shares in the capital of the Company (the "Split"), change of the Company's name to "Hunter Technology Corp." (the "Name Change") and financing of post-Split common shares in the capital of the Company (the "Financing") to close on November 2, 2020.
Pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), the Split is being conducted on a "push-out" basis. All shareholders of record on October 26, 2020 will be entitled to participate in the Split and will receive three post-Split common shares of the Company for every two pre-Split common shares held as of the record date. The Company's common shares will trade on a due bill basis from October 23, 2020 to November 4, 2020, being the effective date for the Split, inclusively. A due bill is an entitlement attached to listed securities undergoing a material corporate action, such as a share split. In this instance, the entitlement is to receive the additional common shares issuable as a result of the Split. Any trades that are executed on the TSXV during this period will be flagged to ensure purchasers receive the entitlement to the additional common shares issuable as a result of the Split. The due bill redemption date will be November 6, 2020.
Following the Change of Business, the common shares will begin trading on the Exchange under the Company's new name, "Hunter Technology Corp.", on a post-Split basis at the opening of the markets on November 5, 2020, at which time, the Company's common shares will no longer carry an entitlement to additional common shares.
Following the Name Change, the Company's new CUSIP number will be 445737109 and its new ISIN is CA4457371090. Shareholders are not required to take any action with respect to the Split or the Name Change and are not required to exchange their existing share certificates for new certificates bearing the Company's new name. The Company's transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada, will send registered shareholders a Direct Registration System advice (DRS) representing the additional number of shares to be received as a result of the Split.
Further details on the Change of Business, including the related name change, Split and Financing, are provided in Hunter's Filing Statement and in the press releases dated September 14, 2020 and October 20, 2020 both of which are available under Hunter's profile on SEDAR.
Final approval by the Exchange of the Change of Business, the Name Change, the Split and the Financing, and the completion of the Change of Business and the related transactions is subject to the Company satisfying certain conditions specified by the Exchange.
