New Break Provides Instructions for Receipt of Share Certificates in Advance of Trading
Toronto, Ontario, August 24, 2022 – New Break Resources Ltd. (“New Break” or the “Company”) is pleased to inform its shareholders of the process for receiving DRS or Share Certificates in preparation for the commencement of trading of the Company’s common shares (“Common Shares”) on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”), further to the Company’s news release announcing conditional approval for CSE listing dated August 5, 2022.
New Break currently has 39,780,750 common shares issued and outstanding. The majority of these shares were issued in book-entry form within the records of the Company’s transfer agent for which neither DRS nor share certificates (“Share Certificate”) have ever been issued. All book-entry holders will receive a DRS statement outlining their holdings via regular mail. For book-entry holders wishing to also receive an electronic copy of the statement, please e-mail your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the remaining shareholders holding physical certificates, in connection with the anticipated listing of the Company’s common shares on the CSE, the Company will be deeming all outstanding physical certificates, which do not currently bear a CUSIP number, as equivalent to the publicly traded shares which have an associated CUSIP number. As such, any physical share certificate holder may choose to:
- Keep their original non-CUSIP bearing share certificate, which remains valid and usable for all lawful purposes;
- Return the original non-CUSIP bearing share certificate to the Company’s transfer agent and receive a physical certificate bearing a CUSIP in exchange; or
- Return the original non-CUSIP bearing share certificate to the Company’s transfer agent in exchange for a DRS statement, which may be deposited with your broker to reflect the shareholdings electronically.
Shareholders holding physical certificates and wishing to exercise option 2 or 3 should mail their physical share certificates to the Company’s transfer agent, TSX Trust Company at 100 Adelaide Street West, Suite 301, Toronto, ON M5H 4H1, to the attention of Stock Transfer Department. Please also include a cover letter accompanying your original share certificate requesting a new DRS or Share Certificate bearing the CUSIP/ISIN number. The cover letter should also include your mailing address and in the case of a DRS, your email address, should you wish to receive an electronic copy of the DRS.
New Break will provide further information with respect to the exact date that the Common Shares will begin trading, following the receipt of final approval from the CSE. The Common Shares are expected to commence trading under the trading symbol “NBRK”.
