CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- Regulus Resources Inc. ("Regulus") (TSX VENTURE:REG) and Southern Legacy Minerals Inc. ("Southern Legacy") (TSX VENTURE:LCY) are pleased to announce that further to their press release dated May 20, 2014, they have executed a definitive arrangement agreement (the "Agreement") on July 29, 2014 pursuant to which the two companies will amalgamate.
The amalgamated company ("Amalco") will take the name of "Regulus Resources Inc." and will maintain the public listings of Southern Legacy on each of the TSXV and the Bolsa de Valores de Lima (the Lima Stock Exchange). Amalco will assume all of the liabilities and assets of each of Regulus and Southern Legacy in accordance with the Business Corporations Act (Alberta).
Regulus and Southern Legacy have agreed to amalgamate pursuant to a plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (Alberta), based on an exchange ratio of 0.565 shares of Amalco for each share of Southern Legacy and one share of Amalco for each share of Regulus. Amalco will also effect a 1:3 share consolidation concurrent with the amalgamation. As a result, shareholders of Southern Legacy will in effect receive 0.1883 shares of Amalco for each Southern Legacy share and shareholders of Regulus will receive 0.333 shares of Amalco for each Regulus share. Upon completion of the arrangement Amalco will have approximately 45.3 million shares outstanding, approximately 74% of which will be held by former Regulus shareholders and 26% of which will be held by former Southern Legacy shareholders. It is expected that all of the outstanding common share purchase options of Regulus and Southern Legacy will be cancelled as part of the arrangement for no consideration.
The companies intend to call special meetings of their respective securityholders on or before September 30, 2014.
In connection with the signing of this Agreement, Regulus has agreed to increase the unsecured line of credit it has extended to Southern Legacy to a maximum of $2,500,000 (the "Loan"), with the other terms of the Loan remaining unchanged from the terms disclosed in the press release dated May 20, 2014. Advances under the Loan will be made at the discretion of Regulus on expenses approved by Regulus. The Loan will allow Southern Legacy to continue with key activities and obligations until the amalgamation is completed, including making required option payments on its properties.
For further information on Amalco please refer to the joint press release dated May 20, 2014 which is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Each company has agreed to pay the other company a break fee of $750,000 if the arrangement is not completed because the parties fail to recommend to their respective shareholders to vote in favour of the arrangement at a duly called meeting of shareholders, or a party accepts a proposal to complete an alternative transaction.
Certain the directors and officers and other shareholders of each of Regulus and Southern Legacy have executed lock-up agreements in connection with the execution of the Agreement. In total, shareholders holding in excess of 19.3% of the Southern Legacy shares and 9.4% of the Regulus shares have agreed to vote in favour of the arrangement.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented.
