Receives DTC Eligibility for Trading of its Common Shares in the United States
Vancouver, B.C., April 27, 2017. Zinc One Resources Inc. (TSX-V: Z; OTC: ZZZOF, Frankfurt: RH33) (“Zinc One or the Company”) is pleased to announce that Forrester Metals Inc. (“Forrester”) has appeared before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and has received approval to proceed with the Plan of Arrangement with Zinc One, pursuant to which Zinc One will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Forrester (the “Arrangement”). The Arrangement is subject to Zinc One completing a private placement financing of $10,000,000. Upon this condition precedent being fulfilled and following receipt of TSX Venture and NEX approval for the transaction, the transaction will close.
Receives DTC Eligibility
The Company would also like to announce it has obtained DTC eligibility with the Depository Trust Company for its common shares in the United States. The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corp. and manages the electronic clearing and settlement of publicly traded companies. Securities that are eligible to be electronically cleared and settled through the DTC are considered DTC eligible. This electronic method of clearing securities speeds up the receipt of shares and cash, and thus generally accelerates the settlement process for investors. The ability to have Zinc One's shares trade electronically in the US provides greater convenience for investors and lowers the costs incurred in buying and selling shares. Benefits to Zinc One shareholders as a result of becoming DTC eligible include reducing the time for stock deposits and withdrawals into brokerage accounts as well as opening up access to trade Zinc One shares electronically that was not available prior to DTC approval, creating a significantly larger potential investor base.
