VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Aug. 28, 2017) – StrikePoint Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “StrikePoint”) (TSX VENTURE:SKP)(OTCQB:STKXF), wishes to make the following statements regarding certain market activity surrounding the Company’s common shares.
On August 24, 2017, the Company was notified by the OTC Markets about certain promotional activities in relation to the Company’s common shares, including certain promotional newsletter emails. The Company engaged TSX Ventures LLC on August 11, 2017 to provide promotional services. The Company is unaware of the full nature of the promotional activity or the responsible parties.
The common shares of the Company listed on the OTCQB on May 31, 2017. Since listing on the OTCQB trading volumes have been minimal and sporadic, as the Company’s primary listing is in Canada on the TSX Venture Exchange. On August 21, 2017 and following the August 22, 2017 news release, trading volumes on the OTCQB increased, and the Company attributes the majority of any increased trading volumes on the OTCQB to the contents of its August 22, 2017 news release and the continued positive advancement of the Company’s business.
After inquiry, the Company confirms that its officers, directors or its controlling shareholders (i.e., shareholders owning 10% or more of the Company’s securities) have not, directly or indirectly, authorized or been involved in any way with the creation or distribution of promotional materials.
Neither the Company’s officers, directors and, to the knowledge of the Company, any controlling shareholders, sold or purchased shares of common shares of the Company within the last 90 days.
Other than the engagement of TSX Ventures LLC, the Company has not engaged any third parties to provide investor relations and other related services since January 1, 2016.
