Toronto, Ontario, June 12, 2017 — Torex Gold Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Torex”) (TSX:TXG) announces that the Company has amended certain terms of the proposed amended and restated shareholder rights plan agreement (the “Plan”) to be presented for approval at the annual and special meeting of shareholders of Torex scheduled to be held on June 21, 2017. The amendment was made in response to comments from ISS Proxy Advisory Services, a branch of Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. (“ISS”), a proxy voting advisory and corporate governance services firm.
Torex has amended the definition of “Beneficial Owner” in the Plan to clarify the exemption for money managers, pension funds, mutual funds, trustees and custodians who are not making a take-over bid by removing the requirement that they did not acquire or hold securities for the purpose or with the effect of changing or influencing the control of the Company.
The revised version of the amended and restated Plan will be available on the Company’s website at www.torexgold.com.
Torex is an emerging intermediate gold producer based in Canada, engaged in the exploration, development and operation of its 100% owned Morelos Gold Property, an area of 29,000 hectares in the highly prospective Guerrero Gold Belt located 180 kilometers southwest of Mexico City. Within this property, Torex has the El Limón Guajes Mine, which announced commercial production in March of 2016 and the Media Luna Project, which is in an advanced stage of exploration, and for which the Company issued a preliminary economic assessment (PEA) in 2015. The property remains 75% unexplored.
