TORONTO, ON–(Marketwired – September 11, 2015) – Batero Gold Corp. (“Batero” or the “Company“) (TSX VENTURE: BAT) is pleased to announce that today the British Columbia Securities Commission (the “Commission“) issued its order (“Order“) dismissing allegations made by Red Eagle Mining Corporation (“Red Eagle“) in connection with Batero’s higher take-over bid (the “Batero Offer“) for all issued and outstanding common shares (the “CBJ Common Shares“) of CB Gold Inc. (“CB Gold“).
Pursuant to the Order, the Commission dismissed Red Eagle’s application to cease trade the superior Batero Offer, as well as Red Eagle’s application to reverse and cease trade the CBJ Common Shares issued to Batero under the private placement of June 23, 2015. While having the CB Gold Shareholder Rights Plan (“SRP“) served its purpose, the Commission also allowed the termination of the SRP effectively immediately.
CB Gold shareholders who have tendered to Red Eagle should immediately WITHDRAW their shares from Red Eagle’s lower take-over bid and TENDER to the significantly higher Batero Offer. Red Eagle has been exposed for its desperate tactics of trying to mislead CB Gold shareholders. As of today’s close, the Batero Offer remains well over 20% above the Red Eagle bid and offers CB Gold shareholders the choice of receiving cash or shares. Time is of the essence in light of Red Eagle’s bid expiry time of 4:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on Monday, September 14, 2015. CB Gold shareholders tendering to the Red Eagle bid would be leaving money on the table by being precluded from participating in the higher Batero offer.
The Batero Offer remains open for acceptance until 11:59 p.m. on September 18, 2015. As outlined in Batero’s Notice of Variation and Extension dated September 8, 2015 (the “Notice“) in respect of the Batero Offer, CB Gold shareholders who tender to the Batero Offer will be entitled to receive, at their option, for each CBJ Common Share either $0.06 in cash or 0.8 of a Batero common share, in each case subject to proration. The Batero Offer provides CB Gold shareholders far superior value than the RE Offer, with a significant cash component and participation in the upside of Batero’s projects.
