TORONTO, Nov. 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carlisle Goldfields Limited ("Carlisle" or the "Company") (TSX:CGJ) announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange has confirmed its conditional approval of the previously announced private placement with AuRico Gold Inc. ("AuRico") of 70.6 million common shares of Carlisle at a price of $0.08 per share. As a consequence, the Company expects to close the private placement with AuRico on or about November 20, 2014.
The Company also announces that following careful consideration by the board of directors, including the receipt of legal and financial advice, it has not consented to the request from Nord Gold NV ("Nordgold") to waive the contractual standstill previously agreed to by Nordgold. As noted by Nordgold in its press release of November 13, 2014, the request was purportedly made in order to allow Nordgold to make an offer to acquire all of the outstanding Carlisle shares at a price of $0.096 in cash per share, and would have included, as a condition, the termination of the previously agreed upon transactions with AuRico. The board determined that the transactions with AuRico, as announced on November 11, 2014, represent the best option for the Company and its shareholders.
