June 13, 2022, Toronto, Ontario – African Gold Group, Inc. (TSX-V: AGG, OTC: AGGFF, FRA: 3A61) (“AGG” or the “Company”) announces that at the meeting of shareholders of the Company (the “Shareholders”) held on June 8, 2022 (the “Meeting”), the Company received the approval of the Shareholders to proceed with a name change and a consolidation of the share capital of the Company.
It is expected that on June 15, 2022, the Company’s name will change from “African Gold Group, Inc.” to “Toubani Resources Inc.” (the “Name Change”). The Company’s stock symbol on the TSX Venture Exchange will also change to “TRE”. The CUSIP number assigned to the common shares of the Company following the name change is 89157R104.
It is also expected that on June 15, 2022, the Company will proceed with a consolidation of its issued and outstanding share capital on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for each three (3) pre-consolidation common shares (the “Consolidation”). Any fraction of a share will be rounded down to the nearest whole number. The shares will begin trading on a consolidated basis with the new CUSIP number on June 15, 2022.
As a result of the Consolidation, the outstanding shares of the Company will be reduced to approximately 72,199,014. Management of the Company believes that the proposed share consolidation will position the Company to gain greater exposure to investors that are not willing to trade equity stocks below a certain threshold and as a result, increase the liquidity of the Company.
For more information on the Name Change and the Consolidation, please refer to the Company’s Management Information Circular dated May 4th, 2022, available on the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
