| ||Vancouver, Canada -- Radius Gold Inc. ("Radius" or the "Company") (TSX-V: RDU) is pleased to provide an update on the status of its previously announced proposed change of business from a Mining Issuer to an Investment Issuer (the "Proposed COB"), as described in the Company's press release of January 7, 2015. |
On February 20, 2015, the directors and officers of the Company entered into a voluntary pooling agreement (the "Pooling Agreement") pursuant to which each director and officer agreed not to, directly or indirectly, sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of any common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares") or securities convertible into Common Shares until such time that the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") has issued a final exchange bulletin following the completion of the Proposed COB that evidences the final acceptance of the Proposed COB by the TSXV.
The Company has filed the Pooling Agreement with the TSXV and, as such, the Common Shares will resume trading effective as of market opening on Wednesday, February 25, 2015.
In addition, the Company will be calling an annual and special meeting of its shareholders (the "Meeting") to be held on April 23, 2015 in order to request approval of, among other things, the Proposed COB. A majority of shareholders present at the Meeting must approve the Proposed COB for it to proceed.
Completion of the Proposed COB remains subject to the final approval of the TSXV and there can be no assurance that the Proposed COB will be completed as proposed, or at all.
Further information regarding the Meeting and the Proposed COB will be contained in the management information circular (the "Circular") to be prepared and mailed to the Company's shareholders in respect of the Meeting. A copy of the Circular will also be made available on the Company's website and filed under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
