TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/17 -- Liberty Silver Corp. (CSE:LSL)(CSE:LSL.CN)(CNSX:LSL) ("Liberty" or the "Company") announced today that, in connection to the listing of its shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange, the management of the Company and its major shareholder have entered into a series of governance agreements designed to align the interests of the management and the major shareholder with those of the Company and all of its shareholders.

Option Agreements

Under the terms of three option agreements, BG Capital Group Ltd. ("BGCG") which at the date hereof controls, together with its affiliates, 13,308,405 Common Shares or approximately 54.45% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares, has granted to Bruce Reid, John Ryan and Howard Crosby options to purchase an aggregate of 4,000,000 Common Shares currently owned by BGCG. The options so granted are exercisable at CAD$1.00 per Common Share and expire on the earlier of: May 1, 2024 and the 30th day following an event that constitutes a change of control of the Company. Until May 1, 2023, the options so granted can only be exercised if the board of directors or shareholders of the Company, as the case may be, approve a transaction that constitutes a change of control of the Company. After May 1, 2023, the options can be exercised up to May 1, 2024 without the requirement of a change of control event. Until the options so granted are either exercised or expire, the Common Shares that are subject to the options will be held in escrow by an escrow agent.

Voting Agreement

Under the terms of a voting agreement, BGCG has granted to an arm's-length attorney, a role currently being assumed by Bruce Reid, a power of attorney to vote any Common Shares which BGCG owns over and above 10% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares at the relevant time. The term of the voting agreement starts today, the date on which the Common Shares of the Company commence trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange, and expires two years thereafter, or earlier in the event that the Common Shares cease to be listed for trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange.

Standstill Agreement

Under the terms of a standstill agreement, BGCG has limited ability to dispose of its Common Shares. Until May 1, 2020, BGCG cannot dispose of any Common Shares without the consent of Bruce Reid and, thereafter, BGCG can only dispose of a maximum of 500,000 Common Shares during any calendar year. Following the expiration of the voting agreement, under the terms of the standstill agreement Bruce Reid, John Ryan and Howard Crosby have the right, at all meetings of shareholders of the Company, to direct the voting of the 4,000,000 Common Shares that are subject to the options granted to them by BGCG as described above. In addition, BGCG cannot vote any of its other Common Shares against any resolutions put before the shareholders of the Company by the board of directors or recommended by the board of directors for approval by the shareholders of the Company. The standstill agreement expires on the earlier of completion of a change of control event or May 1, 2024. The standstill agreement has been approved by the board of directors of the Company and ratified by a majority shareholder resolution signed by BGCG.
