TORONTO, ON – (April 11, 2022) – Electra Battery Materials Corporation (TSX-V: ELBM; OTCQX: ELBMF) (“Electra” or the “Company”) announces that effective at the close of business on April 12, 2022, the Company will consolidate (the “Consolidation”) its outstanding common share capital on the basis of one (1) post-Consolidation share for every eighteen (18) pre-Consolidation shares. At the opening of markets on April 13, 2022, the common shares of the Company will commence trading on a post-Consolidation basis under the existing ticker symbol “ELBM” and the new CUSIP: 28474P201.
The Consolidation is being undertaken in preparation for a potential listing of the common shares of the Company on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”). The Consolidation was previously approved by shareholders of the Company at the annual general and special meeting held on December 2, 2021.
As of the date of this news release, the Company has 562,414,189 common shares issued and outstanding. Following completion of the Consolidation, the Company is expected to have approximately 31,245,233 common shares issued and outstanding. The exercise price and number of common shares issuable upon the exercise of the Company’s outstanding options, warrants and convertible notes will also be proportionally adjusted upon completion of the Consolidation.
A letter of transmittal will be mailed to registered shareholders once the Consolidation has taken effect. The letter of transmittal contains instructions on how registered shareholders can exchange their share certificates evidencing their pre-Consolidation shares for new share certificates representing the number of post-Consolidation shares to which they are entitled.
Beneficial shareholders holding their shares through a brokerage may be subject to different procedures for obtaining their post-Consolidation shares. If shareholders have any questions in this regard, they are encouraged to contact their respective brokerage or intermediary.
Readers are cautioned that while the Company has applied for listing on Nasdaq, completion of a listing is subject to regulatory approvals and the satisfaction of applicable listing requirements. There can be no assurance that a listing will be completed, and in the event a listing is completed it is contemplated that the common shares of the Company would continue to trade in Canada on the TSX Venture Exchange.
