Erin Ventures Amends Shareholder Protection Rights Plan

2013-02-05 15:04:11 -

Victoria, British Columbia CANADA, February 05, 2013 /FSC/ - Erin Ventures Inc. (EV - TSX Venture), proposes to amend its Shareholder Protection Rights Plan in order to better protect the interests of shareholders in the event of a hostile takeover bid. Under the terms of the Shareholder Protection Rights Plan, in the event that a takeover bid for the Corporation

is not a "permitted bid", shareholders will have the right to acquire additional shares of the Corporation at a substantial discount to the market price, effectively diluting the holdings of a hostile bidder. Under the proposed amendment to the Shareholder Protection Rights Plan, additional conditions will be imposed in order for a bid to be considered a "permitted bid". Those additional conditions include:

1. The bid must be for all of the outstanding shares.

2. The bid must be conditional upon acceptance by at least 66% of the shareholders.

3. The offeror must give at least 14 days' advance notice to the Corporation.

4. The offeror must obtain an independent valuation of the Corporation.

5. The bid price must be not less than the greater of: i) the total market capitalization of the Corporation's shares, OR; ii) the aggregate of the capitalized costs of the Corporation's mineral properties, OR; iii) the value of the Corporation as determined by an independent valuation.

The amendment also includes an adjustment to the dilution formula to be used in the event of a non-permitted bid. The proposed amendment to the Shareholder Protection Rights Plan is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and will be submitted for shareholder ratification at the next annual meeting.
