NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISSEMINATION TO US NEWSWIRE SERVICES
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Broadway Gold Mining Ltd. (TSX-V:BRD) (OTCQB:BDWYF) ("Broadway" or the "Company") announces that its Board of Directors, subject to disinterested shareholder and TSX Venture Exchange (TSX-V) approval, has approved the re-pricing of a total of 840,000 options to purchase common shares ("Options") to an amended exercise price of C$0.20 per Option (the "Re-Pricing"). The closing price of the Company's common shares on the TSX-V on June 7, 2018, prior to the approval of the Re-Pricing, was C$0.165. A total of 440,000 of the Options had been issued on April 3, 2017 with an original exercise price of C$1.11. A further 400,000 Options had been issued on July 13, 2017 at an original exercise price of C$0.74.
In the coming weeks, Broadway will approach warrant holders to determine if there is unanimous approval to reprice existing warrants given the exercise rules triggered by such an event.
The Re-Pricing of the Options will be submitted for TSX-V approval shortly and shareholder approval will be sought at the Company's upcoming 2018 Annual General Meeting. The Re-Pricing of the Options is subject to a simple majority approval of the Company's shareholders excluding votes attached to shares that are beneficially owned by insiders to whom options may be granted under the Company's stock option plan or associates of such persons. Prior to the Company's receipt of TSX-V and disinterested shareholder approval, none of the Options may be exercised at the revised price.
The Re-Pricing of the Options to insiders, employees and consultants is undertaken to attempt to ensure that the objectives of the Company's stock option plan are fulfilled and to compensate directors, who receive no cash compensation.
