Calgary, AB, August 1, 2019 – CMX Gold & Silver Corp. (CSE:CXC) (“CMX” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter of intent dated June 28, 2019 with Interfield Software Solutions (“Interfield”), which sets out the proposed terms of a transaction whereby CMX will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Interfield in exchange for shares of the Company (the “Acquisition”). The Acquisition will constitute a reverse takeover of the Company under the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”). Information concerning Interfield Interfield, a Seychelles corporation based in Dubai, is a software development company that provides tailor-made data management and marketplace solutions for numerous business segments worldwide including oil and gas, mining, agriculture, maritime, retail, banking and government institutions to increase efficiency, improve overall performance and lower costs through intuitive and powerful online and offline software applications. Transaction summary The final terms of the Acquisition are still being negotiated between the parties. At this time, it is anticipated that the acquisition will be completed by way of a three cornered amalgamation in the Seychelles (the “Transaction”). CMX will consolidate its outstanding common shares on a ratio to be determined. It is anticipated the consolidation will be on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for every six (6) pre-consolidation common shares, or such other number of preconsolidation common shares up to but not exceeding ten (10) pre-consolidation common shares for one (1) post-consolidation common share. For example, in the case of a 1:6 consolidation, CMX will issue approximately 54 million post-consolidation CMX shares with a deemed value of $0.30 per share in exchange for 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Interfield. The final structure of the Transaction is subject to receipt of tax, corporate and securities law advice for both CMX and Interfield. The Transaction will be an arm’s-length transaction and will not be a related party transaction under applicable securities rules. No deposit or advance has been made, or is anticipated to be made, by CMX to Interfield in connection with the Transaction. The Company currently has 36,265,724 common shares issued and outstanding and 40,000 common shares to be issued, as well as 3,200,000 stock options exercisable at a weighted average price of $0.10 per share and 21,458,740 warrants to acquire CMX shares exercisable at a weighted average price of $0.165 per share. Spinout of new mining company The Company expects that 100% of the shares of CMX Gold & Silver (USA) Corp. (“CMX USA”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company and owner of the Clayton, Idaho mining assets, will be transferred on an “as is” basis to a newly incorporated subsidiary of CMX (“SpinCo”), which will be spun-out by way of a dividend in specie of SpinCo shares to existing shareholders of the Company as of the record date to be set immediately preceding completion of the Transaction. Concurrent with the transfer of ownership of CMX USA to SpinCo, all obligations and liabilities of CMX will be assumed by SpinCo, except for certain liabilities of CMX not exceeding $65,000. An annual general and special meeting of shareholders of CMX will be held on September 16, 2019 to consider, in addition to the usual business, approving a change of name of the Company and a consolidation of CMX common shares. The Transaction will be subject to a number of terms and conditions, including, but not limited to: the parties entering into a definitive agreement with respect to the Transaction (such agreement to include representations, warranties, conditions and covenants typical for a transaction of this nature); the completion of satisfactory due diligence investigations by the parties; receipt of all necessary board and shareholder approvals; completion of the financings described below; and receipt of the approval of the CSE. There can be no assurance that the Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all. Trading in the shares of CMX is expected to remain halted throughout the duration of the Transaction and until the CSE has approved the Transaction. Further details concerning the Transaction (including additional financial information) and other matters will be announced when a definitive agreement is executed. Concurrent Financing It is anticipated that in connection with the Transaction, Interfield will complete a financing of equity securities, of which the size, structure and pricing will be determined in the context of the market, but not to be less than the equivalent of $0.05 per pre-consolidation common share of CMX. Management and board of directors of Resulting Issuer Upon completion of the Transaction, CMX’s directors will resign and the new board of directors of the Company (the “Resulting Issuer”) will be comprised of directors appointed by Interfield. Mr. Hal Hemmerich, the current chief executive officer of Interfield, will be the chief executive officer of the Resulting Issuer. The Resulting Issuer has not yet selected its chief financial officer. Further details including biographies for each proposed director and senior officer will be provided in a subsequent press release.
