Seafield Announces Adoption of Shareholder Rights Plan
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 15, 2013) - Seafield Resources Ltd. ("Seafield" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SFF) is pleased to announce that its board of directors (the "Board") has approved the adoption of a shareholder rights plan (the "Rights Plan"), subject to all necessary regulatory and shareholder approvals. The Rights Plan is designed to ensure that the Company's shareholders are treated fairly in the event of a take-over bid for the Company's common shares and that the Board and shareholders will have adequate time to evaluate any unsolicited take-over bid and, if appropriate, to evaluate and pursue other alternatives to maximize shareholder value.
The Rights Plan is effective as of May 14, 2013 (the "Effective Date"), subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange and ratification by the shareholders of the Company. The Rights Plan will be presented for ratification by the shareholders at the Company's upcoming annual general and special meeting scheduled for June 25, 2013. If approved by shareholders, the Rights Plan will be in effect until the close of the Company's next annual general meeting.
The Board has adopted the Rights Plan in recognition that take-over bids may not always result in shareholders receiving equal treatment or fair and full value for their common shares. The Rights Plan is not intended to block take-over bids. The Rights Plan grants shareholders rights ("Rights") pursuant to the terms of the Rights Plan. On the occurrence of certain triggering events, which include the acquisition by a person or a group of 20% or more of the outstanding common shares of the Company in a transaction not approved by the Board, the Rights will entitle the holders (other than the acquiring person or group) to acquire common shares of the Company at a significant discount to the market price. The Rights are not triggered by purchases of common shares made pursuant to a "permitted bid" (as defined in the Rights Plan) or where the application of the Rights Plan is waived in accordance with its terms.
The Rights Plan is not being adopted in response to any formal proposal to acquire control of the Company.
