CALGARY, Alberta, June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Altitude Resources Inc. (“Altitude” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ALI) announces that it has begun a strategic review of its assets and operations in an effort to enhance shareholder value. In connection with the strategic review, Altitude intends to spin-out its wholly-owned subsidiary, Altitude Resources Ltd. (“Spinco”), to existing shareholders of Altitude (the “Spin-Out”). It is currently contemplated that the Spin-Out will be completed by way of court approved plan of arrangement under the laws of the Province of Ontario. Subsequent to, or in connection with the completion of the Spin-Out, Altitude intends to pursue capital market opportunities that require a public listing.
The completion of the Spin-Out is subject to a number of conditions, including, without limitation, the receipt of all requisite shareholder (on a majority of the minority basis), director, court and regulatory authority approvals. It is anticipated that a meeting of the Company’s shareholders will be called for the second half of 2018 to approve, among other matters, all required matters in connection with the Spin-Out.
Further details of the Spin-Out and Altitude’s search for capital market opportunities will be included in subsequent news releases and disclosure documents to be filed by the Company. In the event the Company completes the Spin-Out prior to the completion of a capital market transaction, it is possible that the Company’s shares could be moved to the NEX Board of the TSXV pending completion of any such transaction.
At the Company’s request, trading in the Altitude Shares has been halted by the TSXV. Trading is expected to remain halted until the Company has complied with all requirements of the TSXV. Prior to the resumption of trading, further details of the Spin-Out and any proposed capital market opportunities will be provided.
