NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zargon Oil & Gas Ltd. ("Zargon" or the "Corporation") announces that it has completed certain transactions contemplated by a Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada) proposal (the "Proposal") filed by Zargon, Zargon Oil & Gas Partnership (“Zargon Partnership”) and Zargon U.S. Holdings Ltd. (“Zargon US”), through their proposal trustee MNP Ltd. The Proposal provides for, among other things, the compromise and settlement of claims of creditors of Zargon, Zargon Partnership and Zargon US (the “Creditors”) and a reorganization of the share capital of Zargon under the Business Corporations Act (Alberta) (the "Reorganization"). The Proposal was approved by the Creditors on December 4, 2020. The Court issued an order approving the Proposal and the Reorganization on January 6, 2021. In accordance with the Reorganization, the articles of the Corporation were amended to provide that all the previously outstanding common shares of the Corporation were re-designated as a new class of redeemable common shares. All such shares were redeemed for nil consideration and shares of a new class of common shares were issued to Blue Sky Resources Ltd. (“Blue Sky”). In addition, all incentive awards of the Corporation were cancelled without payment or other consideration. As a result of the Reorganization, Blue Sky has become the sole shareholder of the Corporation. As all of Zargon's shares are now owned by a single shareholder, Zargon plans to apply to the Canadian securities regulators for an order to cease to be a reporting issuer in each of the provinces of Canada.
