Vancouver, BC - November 28, 2013, Sonoro Metals Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX-V: SMO) announces that further to its news release of November 8, 2013, it has received acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”), and consent from each of the warrantholders, to extend the expiry date and to reduce the exercise price of outstanding transferable share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”), which were issued on December 20, 2011 in connection with a private placement. The original exercise price of $0.30 per share for 4,275,000 Warrants has been reduced to $0.20 per share and the original expiry date of December 20, 2013 for 4,500,000 Warrants has been extended to December 20, 2014.
Pursuant to the policies of the TSXV, the 4,275,000 repriced Warrants were also amended to provide that the exercise period of the Warrants will be reduced to 30 days if, for any 10 consecutive trading days during the unexpired term of the Warrants, the closing price of the Company’s common shares on the TSXV is $0.25 per share or greater. The reduced 30 day period will begin 7 calendar days after such 10 consecutive trading day period.
Of a total of 675,000 Warrants held by insiders of the Company, only 450,000 (or 10% of the total number of Warrants) were subject to repricing and distributed on a pro-rata basis to insiders of the Company. Pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”), the amendments to the Warrants held by insiders constitute a “related party transaction”. The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of, nor the consideration for, the transaction insofar as it involves interested parties, exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
