TORONTO, Sept. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jade Power Trust (“Jade Power” or the “Trust”) (TSXV:JPWR.UN) is pleased to announce that the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) has accepted the Trust’s application for its previously announced consolidation of the Trust’s outstanding trust units on the basis of one new trust unit for every 10 existing trust units (the “Consolidation”). The Consolidation will be effective and the trading of the trust units reflecting the Consolidation will commence at the opening of markets on September 23, 2021.
As a result of the Consolidation, the 231,216,256 trust units issued and outstanding prior to the Consolidation will be reduced to approximately 23,121,625 trust units. Each unitholder’s percentage ownership in the Trust and proportional voting power remains unchanged after the Consolidation, except for minor changes and adjustments resulting from the treatment of any fractional trust units.
The Trust will not be issuing fractional post-Consolidation trust units. Where the Consolidation would otherwise result in a unitholder being entitled to a fractional trust unit, the number of post-Consolidation trust units issued to such unitholder shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number of post-Consolidation trust units.
The board of directors of the Administrator of the Trust, Jade Power Administrator Inc., approved the Consolidation on August 27, 2021. In connection with the Consolidation, the Trust expects to send letters of transmittal to registered holders of its trust units for use in transmitting their existing unit certificates (the “Existing Certificates”) to the Trust’s register and transfer agent, TSX Trust Company, in exchange for new certificates (the “New Certificates”) representing the post-Consolidation trust units to which such unitholder is entitled as a result of the Consolidation. No delivery of a New Certificate to a unitholder will be made until the unitholder has surrendered its Existing Certificates. Until surrendered, each Existing Certificate shall be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of post-Consolidation trust units to which the holder is entitled as a result of the Consolidation.
