April 27, 2021 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Major Precious Metals Corp. (“Major Precious Metals” or the “Company”) (CSE:SIZE | OTC:SIZYF | FRANKFURT:3EZ) announces that it has entered into a Shareholder Rights Plan (the “Plan”) with National Securities Administrators Ltd., as the rights agent. The Plan is effective as of April 26, 2021.
The Plan has been adopted 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 Company’s Board of Directors 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 Plan was not adopted in response to any actual or threatened take-over bid or other proposal from a third party to acquire control of the Company.
Pursuant to the Plan, one right (a “Right”) will be issued and attached to each common share of the Company outstanding as at April 26, 2021 (the “Effective Date”). A Right will also attach to each common share of the Company issued after the Effective Date. The Plan is similar to shareholder rights plans recently adopted by several other Canadian companies. The Plan is not intended to block take-over bids. The Plan includes “Permitted Bid” provisions which will prevent the dilutive effects of the Plan from operating if a take-over bid is made by way of a take-over bid circular that, among other things, remains open for a minimum of 60 days and is accepted by a specified proportion of the common shares held by independent shareholders. The Plan will be triggered by an acquisition, other than pursuant to a Permitted Bid, of 20% or more of the outstanding common shares of the Company.
While the Plan is effective immediately, the Company has elected to make the Plan subject to ratification by the Company’s shareholders. The Company will be seeking shareholder ratification of the Plan within six (6) months from the adoption date. A summary of the principal terms of the Plan will be included in the management information circular to be sent to shareholders in connection with such meeting and a complete copy of the Plan will be available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. If the Plan is not approved by the shareholders, it, together with the outstanding rights, will terminate and cease to be effective.
