Houston, TX – TriStar Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “TriStar”) is pleased to announce that will make an application to the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") for approval of the implementation of an early warrant exercise incentive program (the "Incentive Program") intended to encourage the early exercise of up to 19,682,250 outstanding common share purchase warrants (the "Eligible Warrants") of the Company held by warrant-holders, other than insiders of the Company and pro group members who, in accordance with requirements of the Exchange, are not being offered the right to participate in the warrant incentive program.
The Eligible Warrants were issued as part of the Company's private placement which closed on March 7, 2014. Each Eligible Warrant is currently exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.13 per Common Share, and expires on December 21, 2016.
In order to encourage the early exercise of such Eligible Warrants, the Company will be seeking approval of the Exchange to an amendment to the terms of the Eligible Warrants to enable the holders to receive a Warrant Exercise Unit (as defined and described below) for each Eligible Warrant exercised prior December 15, 2015 (the “New Warrant Expiry Date”) at the price of $0.13 per Warrant Exercise Unit.
Subject to the receipt of formal approval of the Exchange to the incentive program and the resulting amendment to the Eligible Warrants, each holder of an Eligible Warrant who elects to exercise their Eligible Warrant at the price of $0.13 prior to the New Warrant Expiry Date of the incentive program will receive a unit (a "Warrant Exercise Unit") comprised of one common share and one-half of a warrant (a "New Warrant"). Each whole New Warrant will allow the holder to acquire an additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.20 per share until December 21, 2016. The New Warrants, and any shares issued upon exercise thereof, will be subject to a four-month hold period. If an Eligible Warrant holder chooses not to exercise their Eligible Warrants by the New Warrant Expiry Date, the Eligible Warrants will continue to be exercisable for common shares on the same terms that previously existed, as will the warrants held by insiders of the Company and pro group members.
