Otis Gold Announces Forced Conversion of Warrants
October 2, 2009
Vancouver, B.C. - Otis Gold Corp. (“Otis” or the “Company”) advises that it has issued forced conversion notices to the holders of approximately 4,829,000 share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) which were purchased and issued pursuant to a unit private placement which completed in July, 2009. The Warrants are exercisable to purchase one common share per warrant at a price of $0.35 in the first year and at a price of $0.55 in the second year.
The Warrants contain a provision whereby if, during the first year, the Company’s weighted average share price for 20 consecutive trading days equals or exceeds $0.50, the Company may give notice to the Warrant holders that they must exercise their remaining Warrants within a period of 30-days from the date of receipt of the notice. The Company’s common shares have now traded at a weighted average price of greater than $0.50 for more than 20-consecutive days. Any Warrants remaining unexercised after the expiration of the 30-day notice period will be cancelled and will thereafter be of no force or effect.
Although it is unknown how many of the Warrants will be exercised, in the event that all Warrants are exercised, the Company will receive approximately $1,677,450 which will be added to working capital. Of the shares issued due to the forced conversion, up to 4,702,000 shares will be subject to a hold period expiring October, 27, 2009, and up to 127,000 will be subject to a hold period expiring December 22, 2009.
