Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – March 19, 2021) – POCML 5 Inc. (TSXV: PCML.P) (“POCML 5 ” or the “Company“) announces that it has mailed and filed its management information circular with respect to its upcoming annual and special meeting of shareholders to be held on April 9, 2021 (the “Meeting“) to approve: (i) the setting of the number of directors; (ii) the election of the current directors and a new slate of directors conditional on the completion of the proposed qualifying transaction (“QT“) with Collective Mining Inc.; (iii) the appointment of its current auditors and the appointment of a new auditor conditional on completion of the QT; (iv) the re-approval of its existing stock option plan; (v) the consolidation of the common shares of the Company on a one “new” for four “old” basis; (vi) the approval of a name change to “Collective Mining Ltd.”; and (v) pursuant to the changes recently announced by the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV“) to its Capital Pool Company program and changes to the TSXV’s Policy 2.4 – Capital Pool Companies, which came into effect as of January 1, 2021 (the “New CPC Policy“), the removal of any consequences associated with the Company not completing a qualifying transaction within 24 months after its date of listing with the TSXV. A copy of the management information circular in respect of the Meeting is available on the Company’s issuer profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
The New CPC Policy provides that in the event that disinterested shareholder approval is obtained, the consequences that could apply under the former Policy 2.4 for not completing a qualifying transaction within 24 months after its date of listing with the TSXV (including, the potential for the Company’s common shares to be delisted or suspended, or, subject to the approval of the majority of the Company’s shareholders, transferring the Company’s common shares to the NEX board of the TSXV and cancelling certain seed shares held by non-arm’s length parties to the Company), do not apply. The Company is seeking disinterested shareholder approval at the Meeting to remove the consequences that would have applied under the TSXV’s former Policy 2.4 for not completing its QT within 24 months, as it believes that it will afford the Company greater flexibility to complete the QT that is beneficial to all interested parties.
