VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ethos Gold Corp. (“Ethos” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ECC) announces that, its annual meeting, convened and then adjourned, on June 20, 2017, will be reconvened on Tuesday, July 25, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. (PDT) at the offices of the Company, Suite 1430 – 800 West Pender Street, Vancouver, British Columbia (the “Adjourned Meeting”), at which time the Company’s shareholders (the “Shareholders”) will be asked to consider a possible change of the Company’s business from a mining issuer to an investment issuer (the “Change of Business”). The Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) and senior officers (“Management”) believe that it is in the Company’s interests to consider whether the optimal allocation of the Company’s working capital would be within the framework of an investment issuer. To allow the Company to proceed expeditiously in the event that the Board and Management, after completing their deliberations, determine that the Change of Business is in the Company’s best interests, the Board has decided to seek, proactively, a Shareholder approval.
As such, at the Adjourned Meeting, the Company will be asking Shareholders to consider and, if deemed advisable, to pass, with or without variation, an ordinary resolution (the full text of which is reproduced in the a supplement to the management information circular mailed to the Shareholders on July 4, 2017) authorizing and approving a change of the Company’s business from a mining issuer engaged in mineral exploration to an investment issuer engaged in investing in privately held and publicly-traded corporations. Notwithstanding an approval of the Shareholders at the Adjourned Meeting, the Company has been advised that the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) may require the Company to seek a further approval of the Shareholders if and when it decides to proceed with a Change of Business.
Investors are cautioned that the Company has not yet entered into any investment letters of intent, term sheets or contracts relating to any investments, or identified any specific investment opportunities. The Change of Business, if and when it proceeds, will be subject to TSXV approval, and possibly other stock exchange approvals if the Company does not meet TSXV listing requirements after the Change of Business. If the Company proceeds with a Change of Business, Management expects that it would propose a change of name of the Company to a name the Board determines to be appropriate.
