VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – March 14, 2016) – Bearing Resources Ltd. (the “Company” or “Bearing“) (TSX VENTURE:BRZ) announces that it and Odyssey Media Inc. (“Odyssey“) have decided, by mutual consent, to terminate their previously announced letter of intent (the “LOI“).
As announced on May 5, 2015, pursuant to the LOI, the Company was proposing to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Odyssey in exchange for shares of the Company and transform from a mineral exploration company to a film, television and digital media company (the “Reorganization“). The Reorganization would have constituted a “reverse take-over” under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
As also announced on May 5, 2015, the Company still intends to dispose of all of its current mineral assets to Commander Resources Ltd. (the “Commander Transaction“). Completion of the Commander Transaction remains subject to regulatory approval. The Company is also continuing to evaluate other opportunities and intends to provide an update to its shareholders in the near future.
The Company would like to thank its shareholders for their patience over the previous ten months but believes it is in the best interests of the Company not to pursue the Reorganization at this time. The Company wishes Odyssey all the best for the future.
