TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 3, 2010) - Medoro Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MRS) is pleased to announce that it has received all requisite approvals to implement the previously announced consolidation of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company on a three-for-one basis. The consolidation was approved at the annual and special meeting of the shareholders of the Company held on June 9, 2010 and was accepted by the TSX Venture Exchange in accordance with its policies on August 3, 2010.
The post-consolidation common shares of the Company will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange on August 4, 2010. The Company's name and its trading symbol, MRS, will remain unchanged.
Effective upon the implementation of the consolidation, and subject to rounding, Medoro will have approximately 140,317,404 common shares issued and outstanding. Each stock option or other security of the Company convertible into pre-consolidation common shares that has not been exercised or cancelled prior to the effective date of the consolidation will be adjusted pursuant to the terms thereof on the same exchange ratio of three-for-one and each holder of pre-consolidation convertible securities will become entitled to receive post-consolidation common shares pursuant to such adjusted terms.
No fractional common shares will be issued to shareholders as a result of the consolidation.
