Apogee Announces Proposed Share Consolidation
June 14, 2015
0

Apogee Silver Ltd. announces a proposed consolidation of its common shares as approved by shareholders at its annual and special meeting held June 17, 2014 (the “Meeting”). At the Meeting shareholders approved a special resolution to amend the articles of incorporation of the Company to consolidate its issued and outstanding common shares (the “Common Shares”) on the basis of one (1) post-consolidated Common Share for up to a maximum of one hundred (100) pre-consolidated Common Shares, at the discretion of the Board for a period of one year following the Meeting. Upon review and approval of the Board of Directors, the Company proposes that it consolidates its Common Shares such that one (1) new post-consolidated Common Share would be issued for every sixty-five (65) Common Shares outstanding on the effective date of the consolidation, or such lower number as may be required to obtain approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Apogee currently has 450,816,059 Common Shares outstanding. Following the completion of the share consolidation on a sixty-five to one basis, Apogee would have approximately 6,935,631 Common Shares issued and outstanding. The change in the number of issued and outstanding common shares that would result from the share consolidation would not materially affect any shareholder’s percentage ownership in Apogee, although such ownership would be represented by a smaller number of common shares.

The proposed share consolidation is subject to the approvalof the TSX Venture Exchange.

Apogee Silver Ltd. is a mineral exploration and development stage company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol APE.
