MegumaGold and Canadian GoldCamps Announce Intent to Complete Merger

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MegumaGold Corp. (CSE: NSAU, OTC: NSAUF, FWB: 2CM2) (“MegumaGold”) and Canadian GoldCamps Corp. (CSE: CAMP, OTC: SMATF, FSE: A68) (“CanadianGoldCamps”) are pleased to announce that they have entered into an arm’s length agreement dated November 12, 2020 (the “Agreement”) with respect to a contemplated business combination by way of a proposed share exchange between MegumaGold and Canadian GoldCamps to which MegumaGold would acquire 100 per cent of the issued and outstanding shares of Canadian GoldCamps (the “Transaction”). The parties shall jointly prepare an information circular (setting forth inter alia the recommendations of their respective boards of directors for the proposed Transaction) as soon as reasonably feasible. Each party will file a Notice of Meeting and Record Date on SEDAR in due course.

The proposed Transaction would provide shareh
olders of both companies with:

  • A complementary district consolidation of Canadian GoldCamps properties in New Brunswick’s Bathurst Mining Camp, Newfoundland’s Central Gold Belt, and MegumaGold’s extensive exploration land position in Nova Scotia’s Meguma Gold District;
  • Combined goal of defining additional gold resources across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick in 2021;
  • Strengthened balance sheet and enhanced ability to raise capital to advance exploration;
  • Strengthened management and leadership team through complimentary skillsets;
  • A critical mass to support further accretive entry into dominant positions in Gold Camps across Canada.

Canadian GoldCamps is engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of natural resource assets with a focus on precious metal properties which have potential for both significant exploration upside and are prospective for future development. Canadian GoldCamps this year expanded its strategic focus toward precious metals and further affirmed its forward-looking plan to build a diversified portfolio of exploration properties in historical gold-producing areas of Canada.

MegumaGold has assembled a strategically positioned, district-scale claim tenure comprised of 110,791 hectares within the Meguma Gold District in Nova Scotia. MegumaGold’s current focus is preparing drilling campaigns for its Caribou, Killag, and Touquoy West Properties while continuing to develop its regional targets throughout the district. At Touquoy West, located 4 km to the west of St Barbara’s Touquoy mine, combined soil geochemistry results and Induced Polarization (IP) survey results have identified three main anomalies on strike with the Touquoy mine that have never been drill tested. At Killag, MegumaGold’s initial Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling program has identified anomalous gold results over a strike length of 1 km open to the east and west, approximately 20 km to the east of St Barbara’s Touquoy mine. In September of 2020 MegumaGold completed an amalgamation with Osprey Gold acquiring the Goldenville deposit (see MegumaGold press release dated September 14, 2020).

Canadian GoldCamps has assembled approximately 4,150 hectares of prospective gold properties in New Brunswick, near the historic Bathurst mining district, and in Newfoundland’s Central Newfoundland Gold Belt, a region that has recently shown significant gold exploration success. In New Brunswick, Canadian GoldCamps properties encompass the majority of the Elmtree Gold Project (“Elmtree”), which contains a historical resource estimate and will require additional exploration and drilling to enhance its gold-bearing potential. A Mineral Resource Estimate is currently planned for the Elmtree Project that will incorporate the results from an upcoming drilling program and the latest industry gold price forecasts. In Newfoundland, Canadian GoldCamps’ seven claims are proximal to the northeast trending Dog Bay Suture and the parallel Appleton and JPB Faults, which have been identified as hosting significant gold-bearing potential.

Theo Van der Linde, President of MegumaGold stated, We’re incredibly pleased to be workingwith the GoldCamps team in building a premier gold exploration and development company with assets in emerging gold districts throughout Atlantic Canada. With this merger Meguma shareholders will benefit by not only be acquiring high quality assets with growth potential, but also direct access to invaluable guidance from well regarded Board members.”

David Garofalo, Director of Canadian GoldCamps commented, Today’s announcement is yet another positive step towards fulfilling our vision of creating a premier, Canadian-based precious metals focused exploration and development company. The advanced stage of our assets in New Brunswick, along with the early, albeit exciting potential of the properties in Newfoundland, are a great regional and strategic fit to MegumaGold’s extensive land position in the under explored Meguma Gold District.I would like to thank our CEO, Alex Terentiew, for advancing Canadian GoldCamps towards this merger and helping create a new exploration company that shareholders can be excited about. We wish him well in his next endeavour.

Alex Terentiew, President and CEO of Canadian GoldCamps stated

has been a very busy and exciting
for the Company, and for the gold mining industry at large, and I am delighted to have had the privilege to lead
Canadian GoldCamps
through its growth thus far. With the combined portfolio of assets based in the Atlantic
rovinces, and taking into account travel restrictions during this global C
-19 pandemic,
this merger presents an opportunity for all shareholders to benefit from the
experience and relationships MegumaGold’s existing management team has fostered
in the region
over the past few years. I am confident that
MegumaGold’s CEO,
Regan Isenor,
who is based in Halifax
and has
both regional and international experience,
is well suited to
lead the company forward
. I wish the Company great success in the years ahead.

Details of the Proposed Transaction

MegumaGold will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Canadian GoldCamps. Each shareholder of Canadian GoldCamps (each, a “GoldCamps Shareholder”) will receive such number of common shares of MegumaGold (the “Meguma Shares”) as is equal to the product of the number of common shares of Canadian GoldCamps (the “GoldCamps Shares”) held by such shareholder at an exchange ratio which equals one and one-tenth (1.1) Meguma Shares per one (1) GoldCamps Share outstanding at the closing of the Transaction.

The definitive agreement will provide that unexercised incentive stock options and share purchase warrants of Canadian GoldCamps will be assumed by MegumaGold and will: (i) remain outstanding for their full term, and (ii) following the closing date of the Transaction, entitle the holder thereof to acquire Meguma Shares in lieu of GoldCamps Shares, in such number and at such exercise price as shall be adjusted based on the exchange ratio inherent in the Transaction, and otherwise on the same terms and conditions as existed prior to the Transaction.

Canadian GoldCamps will have the right to appoint three (3) members to the board of directors of the resulting issuer, with the total number of members of such board of directors to be initially set at four (4). MegumaGold shall contribute management personnel to the resulting issuer.

MegumaGold currently has 136,318,288 outstanding common shares and 34,466,433 shares reserved for issuance under incentive stock options and share purchase warrants. As of today’s date, it is anticipated an aggregate of 82,966,803 Meguma Shares are anticipated to be issued to the GoldCamps Shareholders, along with options and warrants entitling GoldCamps Shareholders to acquire a further 30,903,501 Meguma Shares.

Based on the foregoing and assuming no outstanding options or warrants of Canadian GoldCamps are exercised prior to closing and giving effect to any concurrent financing, the resulting issuer from the Transaction will have 219,285,092 shares issued and outstanding, of which former GoldCamps Shareholders will hold approximately 38% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the resulting issuer (40% of the common shares of the resulting issuer on a fully diluted basis).

The Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including due diligence by each party, completion of definitive documentation, approval by Boards of Directors of each party, obtaining any necessary shareholder approvals (including any minority approval required by Multilateral Instrument 61-101, if applicable, obtaining all governmental, regulatory, Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”), and other third-party approvals which are necessary in order to allow the parties to complete the Transaction.

Frontdoor Expands On-Demand Home Services to 35 Markets with American Home Shield ProConnect™

Upfront pricing and convenient online scheduling bring next-generation home repair and maintenance solutions to homeowners

MEMPHIS, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Frontdoor(NASDAQ:FTDR), the nation’s leading provider of home service plans, is expanding its on-demand services with the launch of American Home Shield ProConnect, taking another bold step in its journey to transform the $400 billion U.S. home services market. ProConnect is a service that allows consumers to easily schedule a variety of services from highly reviewed local Pros, including repairs and maintenance of appliances, plumbing, electrical, air conditioning and heating systems, and other home maintenance services.

“The American Home Shield brand has provided professional repairs to millions of homeowners through its home service plans for nearly 50 years. With ProConnect, we are leveraging our scale and expertise in new ways, providing consumers with quality on-demand home repair and maintenance services from vetted Pros – at a time when these services are more important than ever,” said Rex Tibbens, Chief Executive Officer of Frontdoor. “We have all experienced significant changes to our lives in recent months, including in our homes. The roof over our heads also acts as an office space for much of the U.S. workforce today, and a school facility for students who are learning remotely. Consumers need convenient services and confidence in who they bring into their homes. With ProConnect, we deliver this.”

ProConnect is available in 35 major metropolitan areas across the country, enabling homeowners to get the help they need from qualified Pros from the palm of their hands. Customers simply go online and select the service they need, then choose a two-hour window for the work to be done. Same-day and next-day appointments are available, and customers can track the Pro in real-time as they travel to their home. The number and type of services offered varies by market.

Many traditional on-demand home services act as lead-generation platforms that sell customers’ personal information to multiple service providers and leave homeowners to do the frustrating work of sifting through a range of marketing messages and price points, as well as managing multiple calls and schedules. ProConnect brings simplicity, transparency and peace of mind to consumers with its upfront pricing, online scheduling, ongoing support, trusted Pros and 30-day guarantee.

These features address concerns expressed by homeowners in research conducted by Frontdoor last year, in which respondents revealed that the most frustrating part of a home repair is the unexpected cost, followed by finding a qualified repair person they trust. When breakdowns happen, 63% of respondents said it can take up to half a day for them to research, interview and select a contractor, and less than 3-in-10 (27%) said they were confident in their ability to take on a DIY home repair or maintenance project.

“Our mission at Frontdoor is to take the hassle out of owning a home, and we’re doing this through our people, our services and innovative technology solutions,” said Tibbens. “ProConnect on-demand services are an important way we’re working to reach even more consumers with essential home repair and maintenance services and simplify the ownership experience.”

Clairvest Reports Fiscal 2021 Second Quarter Results

TORONTO, Nov. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Clairvest Group Inc. (TSX: CVG) today reported results for the fiscal 2021 second quarter and six months ended September 30, 2020 as well as material events which occurred subsequent to quarter end. (All figures are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated)


  • September 30, 2020 book value was $868.5 million or $57.67 per share versus $893.0 million or $59.27 per share as at June 30, 2020
  • Net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was $24.2 million or $1.61 per share. For the six months ended September 30, 2020, net income was $40.1 million or $2.66 per share
  • Digital Media Solutions (“DMS”), an investee company of Clairvest and Clairvest Equity Partners V (“CEP V”), completed its transaction with Leo Holdings Corp., becoming a publicly traded company on the NYSE
  • NovaSource Power Services (“NovaSource”), an investee company of Clairvest and Clairvest Equity Partners VI (“CEP VI”), signed definitive documents with First Solar, Inc. (“FSLR”) to acquire its North American operations and maintenance business
  • Subsequent to quarter end, Clairvest announced the addition of Anne-Mette de Place Filippini to its board of directors
  • Subsequent to quarter end, Clairvest announced a $5 special dividend payable on November 23, 2020 to shareholders of record as at November 9, 2020
  • Subsequent to quarter end, Clairvest and CEP VI made a new equity investment in F12.NET, one of Canada’s leading managed IT services providers

Clairvest’s book value was $868.5 million or $57.67 per share as at September 30, 2020, compared with $893.0 million or $59.27 per share as at June 30, 2020. The decrease in book value per share for the quarter was primarily attributable to net loss for the quarter of $24.2 million, or $1.61 per share, which resulted from net valuation changes in our private equity investment portfolio.

In July 2020, DMS completed its transaction with Leo Holdings Corp., becoming publicly traded on the NYSE under the symbol DMS. As part of the transaction, Clairvest and CEP V received cash proceeds of US$8.2 million and US$18.9 million respectively and 6,091,377 and 14,213,214 Class A common stock of DMS respectively, which in aggregate represents 34.6% of total outstanding shares of DMS. Clairvest and CEP V also received 276,653 and 648,524 publicly traded warrants (NYSE: DMS WS) respectively, which are convertible into Class A common shares at an exercise price of USD$11.50 per warrant.

In August 2020, NovaSource signed definitive agreements with FSLR to acquire their North American operations and maintenance business. The transaction will be funded through a combination of third-party term debt and equity from Clairvest and CEP VI. The acquisition, which is on track to close during fiscal 2021, is subject to customary closing conditions, some of which already have been received. This transaction positions NovaSource as the leader in the growing solar O&M industry in terms of quality, capability, geographic reach and scale.  

In October 2020, Clairvest announced a one-time special dividend of $5.00 per common share, or $75.3 million in aggregate. The dividend is an eligible dividend for Canadian income tax purposes. The dividend will be paid to common shareholders of record as at November 9, 2020 on November 23, 2020. As at September 30, 2020, cash and treasury investments, including those held at wholly-owned acquisition entities, was $475 million, or $31.58 per share.

In November 2020, Clairvest and CEP VI made a $36 million equity investment in F12.NET, a leader in the Canadian managed IT services space. F12.NET provides comprehensive technology packages to small and medium enterprises across the country. Clairvest’s portion of the investment was $9.7 million.

“Since June 2018, we have generated over $400 million in cash proceeds from investment divestures, resulting in our cash balances becoming a significant portion of our book value. We looked closer at our capital needs and made a decision to return a portion of these wins to our shareholders in the form of a $5 per common share special dividend,” said Ken Rotman, CEO of Clairvest. “We continue to be well capitalized to amply fund our CEP fund commitments and to help our portfolio companies navigate through this pandemic. We look forward to continuing the deployment of capital to our latest investment program in CEP VI. Since launching the CEP VI investment program nine months ago, we have made four investments and are encouraged by the various opportunities that we are seeing in our investment pipeline. While the pandemic has negatively impacted some of our investments, others are succeeding despite this difficult environment due to the efforts and creativity of the management team at Clairvest combined with the leadership at our portfolio companies, for which we are grateful.”

The term book value does not have any standardized meaning according to IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. There is no comparable IFRS measure presented in Clairvest’s consolidated financial statements and thus no applicable quantitative reconciliation for such non-IFRS financial measure. The Company has calculated book value consistently for many years and believes that book value can provide information useful to its shareholders in understanding its performance, and may assist in the evaluation of its business relative to that of its peers.
