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.
