Cariboo Rose Announces Allocation of Cost Base on Spin-out Completion, Grants Options
Vancouver, BC, December 13, 2011 – Cariboo Rose Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:
) (“Cariboo Rose”) has completed the spin-out of its interest in the Woodjam copper-gold project to Consolidated Woodjam Copper Corp. (TSX-V:
) (“Woodjam Copper”), and Cariboo Rose shareholders have received approximately 0.70 of a Woodjam Copper share for each Cariboo Rose share held as of the close of November 25, 2011, the effective date.
The Canadian federal income tax consequences of the spin-out transaction are summarized in the information circular of Cariboo Rose dated August 26, 2011, as filed on the SEDAR website. In particular, shareholders should reduce the Adjusted Cost Base (“ACB”) of Cariboo Rose shares by an amount which should then be recorded as the acquisition cost of the Woodjam Copper shares.
Management of Cariboo Rose has calculated that the ACB of each post-spin-out common share of Cariboo Rose should be reduced to 27.2% of its pre-spin-out ACB and that 72.8% of the ACB of each pre-spin-out common share of Cariboo Rose should be recorded as the acquisition cost of each Woodjam Copper share. This fair value ACB adjustment calculation is based on the relative Cariboo Rose and Woodjam Copper closing share prices for the five trading days from December 2, 2011 to December 8 2011. No such determination of fair value by Cariboo Rose is binding on the Canadian tax authorities.
Cariboo Rose has also granted stock options to eleven directors, officers and employees for the purchase of 2,700,000 shares of Cariboo Rose at an exercise price of $0.10 per share for a period of ten years from the date of grant. Subsequent to this grant of options, there will be options outstanding for the purchase of 2,850,000 shares. Cariboo Rose presently has 28,516,577 shares issued and outstanding.
