CARLYLE COMMODITIES CORP. (CSE:CCC, FSE:1OZA, OTC:DLRYF) (“Carlyle” or the “Company”) announces that it has agreed to issue an aggregate of 546,500 common shares (each, a “Share”) at a deemed price of $0.05 per Share to certain directors of the Company (the “Insiders”) and a certain consultant of the Company as full and final payment of debt in the aggregate amount of $27,325 (the “Debt Settlement”), to settle certain amounts owed by the Company for unpaid consulting services.
Accordingly, the portion of the Debt Settlement with the Insiders constituted a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The issuance of the Shares to the Insiders was exempt from the valuation requirement of MI 61-101 by the virtue of the exemption contained in section 5.5(b) as the Company’s Shares are not listed on a specified market and from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 by virtue of the exemption contained in Section 5.7(1)(a) as the value of the Shares issued under the Debt Settlement did not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
All securities issued in connection with the Debt Settlement will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day after the date of issuance (the “Issuance Date”), as set out in National Instrument 45‐102 – Resale of Securities.
