The Company announced today that it had filed articles of amendment to give effect to the Consolidation on May 13, 2014.
The Company expects that the Consolidation will reduce the number of its outstanding Common Shares from approximately 60,687,650 to approximately 30,343,825. All materials necessary to effect the Consolidation will be filed with the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") on or about May 14, 2014 and, subject to TSX approval, it is expected that the Common Shares will commence trading on the TSX on a consolidated basis on or about May 20, 2014 under the symbol "TSL".
Letters of transmittal describing the process by which shareholders exchange their existing share certificates/DRS Advices for DRS Advices (or share certificates if requested by the shareholder in accordance with the instructions contained in the DRS Advices) representing the consolidated Common Shares will be mailed to registered shareholders of the Company later today. Registered shareholders may also obtain copies of the letter of transmittal by contacting their broker or other intermediary or the Company's transfer agent, Computershare Investor Services Inc.
Shareholders who hold their Common Shares through their broker or other intermediary and do not have actual share certificates/DRS Advices registered in their name will not be required to complete and return a letter of transmittal. Any pre-consolidation Common Shares owned by such shareholders will automatically be adjusted as a result of the Consolidation to reflect the applicable number of post-consolidation Common Shares owned by them and no further action is required to be taken by such shareholders. If as a result of the Consolidation a shareholder becomes entitled to a fractional Common Share, such fractions will be rounded down to the nearest whole Common Share.
