WILMINGTON, Del. , May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Auric Mining Company (OTC: AUMY) announced that at a Special Meeting held on April 30, 2012 a majority of shareholders have passed a Resolution authorizing its Transfer Agent to issue and deliver the Stock Dividend announced March 20, 2012 .
The Resolution declared May 14th, 2012 the Record date and May 18, 2012 the Distribution Date.
In anticipation of new growth opportunities and as a loyalty benefit to all shareholders, the Company had voted to pay all shareholders on record, a stock dividend of 0.03 shares for every share owned, meaning 3 new Auric Mining shares will be issued for every 100 owned.
The Ex-Dividend Date will be set at May 14th, 2012 . For the purpose of clarity, the standard Ex-Dividend Date rules will apply. If a stockholder buys a dividend paying stock one day before the Ex-Dividend Date, you will still qualify for the Stock Dividend. However, if you buy on the published date of the Ex Dividend, in this case May 14th, 2012 , the shares won't be eligible for the Stock Dividend. Conversely, if you want to sell a stock and still receive the dividend that has been declared, you need to sell on (or after) the Ex-Dividend Day.
The date of payment for the stock dividends to all qualifying shareholders has been set at May 18th, 2012 . New share certificates will be mailed directly to all shareholders of record by the Company's Transfer Agent. In the interim, we advise all stockholders to contact their brokers to ensure their mailing information is updated and correct in order that stock certificates arrive at their proper destination.
The Company had previously announced its Acquisition Initiative has significantly advanced and the Company is pursuing various gold mining properties that would add in excess of $100,000,000 in potential revenues supported by a $20m Financial Guarantee provided by its Financial Banker partners.
The Company expects the confidentiality restrictions currently in place with the targeted acquisitions and/or partnerships will be lifted as the due diligence process is completed and will then be in a position to announce completion of specific acquisitions and/or partnerships that are currently in progress. Additionally, the Company will be announcing additional projected acquisition and partnerships shortly and a projected increase in its $20m Financial Guarantee.
The Company will continue to provide regular updates regarding progress and developments of its expanded business model.
