Las Vegas, NV, July 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Liberty Power Corp. (OTCQB: FLPC), an innovative and diversified mine exploration and development company focused on "Mined in America" strategic industrial minerals, announced a Special Meeting of Stockholders is proposed to take place on July 31, 2013.
According to FLPC Board Chairman, Robert Reynolds, the purpose of the meeting is to involve and seek approval from the FLPC stockholders in amending the Company's articles of incorporation to increase the total authorized capital from 540,000,000 to 3,000,000,000, as well as to create the ability to issue up to 10,000,000 preferred shares.
"The Company's board of directors has extensively reviewed FLPC's objectives pertaining to near term production goals, mid to long term exploration and operational development, and its ability to consider accretive acquisitions should they come forth," Reynolds said. "The outcome was that the board agreed that FLPC requires the ability to enter into possible future financing arrangements that are beneficial to the company and its stockholders - thus the requirement for an increase in the authorized capital. Also, to further mitigate the risk of future capital raising activities, the 10,000,000 preferred shares with flexible structuring are being proposed as a key option to help secure investments without harmful dilution."
Reynolds added, "In keeping with our Pathways of Progress initiative of encompassing best corporate practices and proactive decision-making to ensure the interests of FLPC investors, mining partners and stockholders, it was determined that the ideal approach is to directly involve and empower current FLPC stockholders in regards to determining the path forward. Furthermore, it is the judgement of management and the understanding of the board that this proposed modification to the structure will have the potential to create opportunities for near term beneficial financing opportunities."
The Special Stockholder's Meeting for all stockholders of record on July 3, 2013 will be conducted at 2pm, July 31 2013 at our corporate offices, and we are welcoming all to attend. In the absence of being able to attend, we encourage all stockholders to submit their proxy form advising of their voting intention. Full information will be mailed to all stockholders, and will also be available on our website on or about July 19. In the meantime, our preliminary proxy information filing is available for review on via our website or directly with the SEC. FLPC will continue to use Pathways of Progress announcements to inform and update all interested parties of advancements in our mining and financial operations.
