Knorr-Bremse’s Offer for Haldex: EU Commission Has Initiated a Phase II Investigation

By Knorr-Bremse AG

– Knorr-Bremse Reiterates Commitment to Transaction and Preparedness to Implement Remedies if Needed
– Merger Clearance Process Continued with Full Focus and Necessary Resources
– Knorr-Bremse Regards Shareholders’ Vote at the EGM as Haldex’ Official Position and Thus Binding for the Board of Directors
– CEO, Klaus Deller: “A Phase II is a common approach for complex transactions. We have always said that we are ready to make concessions including divestments if necessary. We have already reputable bidders lined up who have handed in confirmed offers. In view of Knorr-Bremse the transaction follows a compelling rationale in spite of potential remedies; we remain fully committed to achieving merger clearance at acceptable terms as soon as possible.”

MUNICH, GERMANY / ACCESSWIRE / July 24, 2017 / The EU Commission has today informed Knorr-Bremse AG (“Knorr-Bremse”) about the decision to initiate an in-depth investigation (Phase II) in relation to the merger clearance process of the proposed acquisition of Haldex AB (publ) (“Haldex”). The decision by the EU Commission does not come as a surprise, as Knorr-Bremse has already communicated on 28 June 2017 that it had indications that a Phase II could be initiated.

As confirmed by the EU Commission, its decision to initiate a Phase II investigation does not prejudge the EU Commission’s final assessment at the end of this in-depth analysis. A Phase II investigation is common practice in complex transactions for which the authority requires additional time. The purpose is for the authority to more deeply review data and gather additional evidence in order to confirm or dispel competitive doubts that have been expressed in Phase I. Thereby, the EU Commission will evaluate for which product areas there are factual competitive concerns. It is equally possible that doubts initially expressed are removed during a Phase II. The key question is to what extent exactly competition is significantly affected and which remedies exactly will be required.

If needed and acceptable, Knorr-Bremse is also prepared to divest from product areas which are finally viewed as problematic in Phase II. Thereby, Knorr-Bremse will be able to build on the divestment process already set up in the course of Phase I. Already, during Phase I, Knorr-Bremse initiated a structured bidding process and, following a due diligence process conducted by the bidders, has received credible confirmed offers by reputable buyers for different product areas. In Phase II, Knorr-Bremse will widen the pool of bidders if necessary. Knorr-Bremse will continue the open dialog with the EU Commission on how to address the concerns and spend all necessary resources to receive merger clearance on acceptable terms as soon as possible.

Klaus Deller, Chairman of the Executive Board of Knorr-Bremse, said, “We remain fully committed to the combination of Haldex and Knorr-Bremse and aim at merger clearance in the best interest of both companies. Our merger clearance strategy reflects the transaction’s complexity and we are well prepared for a Phase II investigation. Such an in-depth analysis is a common approach in complex cases. Nothing is set in stone at this point in time and there is no reason for premature conclusions. We have always said that we are ready to make concessions including divestments if necessary. Most importantly, we have already taken precautions. In view of Knorr-Bremse the transaction follows a compelling rationale in spite of potential remedies; we remain fully committed to achieving merger clearance at acceptable terms as soon as possible.”

Background to the Offer

On 5 September 2016, Knorr-Bremse had announced a public offer to the shareholders of Haldex to tender all shares in Haldex to Knorr-Bremse. On 25 April 2017, it was announced that the acceptance period for the offer is extended until 26 September 2017. The completion of the offer is conditional upon, inter alia, all necessary clearances from authorities being obtained on terms acceptable to Knorr-Bremse.

On 28 June 2017, Knorr-Bremse announced that it has received indications that the EU Commission might initiate a Phase II investigation and that, in view thereof, Knorr-Bremse has applied for permission from the Swedish Securities Council (the “SSC”) to extend the acceptance period until 9 February 2018. Following the withdrawal of support by the Haldex Board of Directors for an extended offer period and a continued merger clearance process Knorr-Bremse has requested Haldex to convene an extraordinary general meeting (EGM”). The aim is to let shareholders, whose investment is at risk, have the final and ultimate word in the matter. Haldex has announced that the EGM is to be held on 17 August 2017. The shareholders of Haldex will resolve whether to support and endorse Knorr-Bremse’s application to the SSC, as well as whether Haldex is to support and cooperate with Knorr-Bremse in the continued merger clearance process.

Knorr-Bremse has asked the SSC to withhold further dealings with Knorr-Bremse’s application for extension of the acceptance period until Haldex’s shareholders have had the opportunity to resolve whether to support and endorse the application or not.

Knorr-Bremse regards the shareholders’ vote as Haldex’ official position and thus binding for the Board of Directors.

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – July 24, 2017) – DNI Metals Inc. (DNI: CSE) (OTC Pink: DMNKF) (“DNI” or the “Company”)

Highlights — First 3 holes from the Main Zone

  • VHT0019: 19.50m @ 6.12% GC, from 10.00m (incl. 4.50m @ 10.59% GC, from 19.00m);

  • VHT0025: 11.50m @ 7.23% GC, from surface;

  • VHT0016: 12.00m @ 4.14% GC from 8.50m & 4.50m @ 5.20% GC, from 25.00m.

DNI Is pleased to announce the following (refer Figure 1 and Table 1 following):

  1. Receipt of the first batch of drilling assay results from its Vohitsara Graphite Project in Madagascar, including: six (6) mineralised holes from the Southwest Zone (“SW Zone”) & the first three (3) holes from the Main Zone;

  2. Drilling has confirmed that free-dig saprolitic weathered material has been developed to depths of 17m to 42m below surface; averaging 28m;

  3. Forty-one holes for 1,235m have been completed to date, with additional assays due shortly.

Table 1: Significant Drilling Results:

A full listing of all 185 assay results is appended at the back of this document.

Disclosure: Note that insufficient geological data currently exist to accurately determine true mineralisation widths as compared to intersection widths as listed in Table 1 above. Note also that the intersected mineralisation is hosted within weathered in-situ saprolitic material and is known to be broadly disseminated within this regolith horizon in the area currently being tested by drilling.

Dan Weir, CEO, commented, “We are very excited about these results. The first three (3) holes in the main zone, have all hit solid graphite mineralization. Getting 19.50m of 6.12% Cg that includes 4.50m of 10.59% in Hole 19, is well above the average tenor of mineralisation for this area.

QAQC: Standards every 20 samples – within acceptable limits / Duplicates averaging every 10 samples – results comparable to primary assays. AGAST also have internal QAQC procedures – passed.

The samples were processed at AGAT Laboratories, in Ontario, Canada. Graphitic carbon assays were performed using a modified infrared assay method. This method is preferable to other industry-accepted assay methods; inclusive of varying forms of Loss on Ignition (LOI) testing. All analysis was preformed using LECO instruments.

About DNI Metals

Certain advisors and directors of DNI have significant operational experience at historical hard rock graphite mines in Canada (e.g. Ontario and Quebec) and Australia. Between them, they have built three (3) processing plants and designed two (2) others; all, which were shut down in the 1990,’s due to increased Chinese competition. Keith Minty, a director, previously worked at Cal Graphite near Kearny, Ontario.

It was our team’s understanding of the high production and capital expenditure costs associated with so-called “hard rock” graphite mining that inspired DNI to search for saprolite-hosted graphite deposits.

Certain parts Madagascar and Brazil, produce graphite from weathered material called saprolite.

According to Dictionary.com, saprolite is described as:

Soft, thoroughly decomposed and porous rock, often rich in clay, formed by the in place chemical weathering of igneous, metamorphic, or sedimentary rocks. Saprolite is especially common in humid and tropical climates. It is usually reddish brown or grayish white and contains those structures (such as cross-stratification) that were present in the original rock from which it formed.

DNI owns a commercially permitted, saprolite-hosted graphite deposit in Madagascar; located 50kms from the country’s main seaport. The deposit is located less than two (2) kms from the paved national highway. DNI intends to develop the Vohitsara project, should the economic viability and technical feasibility be established. DNI has not yet established mineral resources or mineral reserves supported by a PEA or mining study (PFS or FS).

DNI has a graphite wholesale business, in which it buys and sells high quality graphite. This business has shown a steady increase in volume over the past year.

Steven Goertz (MAusIMM, MAIG), who is a qualified person, approved the technical disclosure in this news release.

Eagle Plains Commences Exploration Activity at Acacia

Eagle Plains Commences Exploration Activity at Acacia

Cranbrook, British Columbia (FSCwire)Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. (EPL:TSX-V) has mobilised field crews to commence 2017 exploration activity on EPL’s 4715 ha Acacia property, located 45 km north of Kamloops in central British Columbia. The core property area has been held by Eagle Plains since 2001 and carries no underlying royalties or encumbrances.

The Acacia property is considered to have excellent potential for hosting volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) deposits. These deposits typically contain both base and precious metals, and occur in clusters and/or stacked lenses. The property covers a stratigraphic assemblage which hosts a number of nearby, on-strike base and precious-metal deposits including the Rea Gold, K7, Twin 3 and past-producing Samatosum Mine, located approximately 4km northwest of current property boundaries. Past drilling within target stratigraphy northwest of current property boundaries returned values from trace quantities up to 10.6 g/t Au, 335.3 g/t Ag , 3.13 % Zn, 2.74% Pb, and 0.55% Cu over 2.37m. Management cautions that past results or discoveries on proximate land are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved on the Acacia property.

Extensive work in the area was completed following the discovery of the Samatosum and Rea deposits in the mid-1980s. Geological mapping, geophysical surveys, thousands of soil samples and over 125 drill-holes were completed in target stratigraphy within 4km of current Acacia claim boundaries but exploration in the area and elsewhere virtually ceased during the mining downturn in British Columbia following the Windy Craggy decision in 1993. Previous fractured ownership and the cessation of work in the 90’s resulted in large gaps in drilling of high-potential stratigraphy within current Acacia property boundaries.

See Acacia location and summary compilation map

2017 fieldwork follows a comprehensive compilation by Eagle Plains of data collected historically on the property by past operators which include 12,037 soil, 1131 rock and 51 silt samples, 56 trenches, 26 drill-holes and numerous geological and geophysical surveys from past operators Homestake Minerals, Omni Resources, Falconbridge Copper and Esso Minerals.

Current fieldwork will consist of geologic mapping and a soil geochemical survey designed to infill gaps in existing coverage. Work will be carried out by TerraLogic Exploration Ltd. of Cranbrook B.C. under the supervision of Mike McCuaig, P.Geo.

About Eagle Plains Resources

Based in Cranbrook, B.C., Eagle Plains continues to conduct research, acquire and explore mineral projects throughout western Canada. The Company is committed to steadily enhancing shareholder value by advancing our diverse portfolio of projects toward discovery through collaborative partnerships and development of a highly experienced technical team. Managements’ current focus is to preserve its treasury while advancing its most promising exploration projects. In addition, Eagle Plains continues to seek out and secure high-quality, unencumbered projects through research, staking and strategic acquisitions. Since 2012, Eagle Plains has added to its portfolio a number of new projects exceeding 130,000 ha targeting mainly gold, uranium and base-metals in Saskatchewan, a highly-prospective mining jurisdiction which was recently recognized by the Fraser Institute as the best place in the world in terms of Investment Attractiveness. Throughout the exploration process, our mission is to help maintain prosperous communities by exploring for and discovering resource opportunities while building lasting relationships through honest and respectful business practices.

Expenditures from 2011-2016 on Eagle Plains-related projects were approximately $16.0M, which was funded by Eagle Plains and, for the most part, by third-party partners. This exploration work resulted in approximately 15,000 m of diamond-drilling and extensive ground-based exploration work facilitating the advancement of numerous projects at various stages of development.

Technical aspects of this news release have been reviewed and approved by Mike McCuaig, P.Geo.

Castle Silver Resources Underground Sample Returns High-Grade Cobalt and Gold, Drilling Continues, Private Placement Closes – Video Available on Investmentpitch.com

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 24, 2017) – Castle Silver Resources (TSXV: CSR) (OTC: TAKRF) (FSE: 4T9B), has issued a shareholder update. An 82-kilogram sample of vein material was recently taken from the first level of its flagship past producing high-grade Castle Silver-Cobalt mine at Gowganda, Ontario.

InvestmentPitch.com has produced a “video” which discusses this news. If this link is not enabled, please visit www.InvestmentPitch.com and enter “Castle Silver” in the search box. The video is also available on YouTube.

The sample was crushed to -10 mesh and blended by SGS Laboratories in Lakefield, Ontario. A representative sample was assayed, returning 1.48% cobalt, 5.7 grams per tonne gold, and 46.3 grams per tonne silver, with nickel results still pending.

Chip samples reported in June were not assayed for gold and now being re-checked for possible gold content.

Castle’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Castle Silver Mines, owns a 100% interest in the 33-square kilometre Castle Property, which includes 3 mine shafts. The high-grade silver mine has operated at various times between 1917 and 1989 and produced more than 9.5 million ounces of silver and 300,000 pounds of cobalt.

Frank Basa, President & CEO, stated: “The high cobalt and gold values from the underground bulk sample support our thesis from the beginning that there is much more to this past producing mine than just silver. At this point, we do not know what the gold mineralization is associated with and our crews have taken an additional large sample from the same area to be tested by another lab in order to verify these stunning gold assays.

The company closed its latest financing, raising gross proceeds od approximately $882,000, issuing approximately 4.4 million units at $0.20 per unit.

Phase I drilling from surface at the Castle Property, which began about 10 days ago, is proceeding very well and has been expanded from 1,500 metres to 2,000 metres, with approximately 20 drill holes expected to be competed. Drilling includes testing of unmined areas below the first and second levels.

Meanwhile, multiple surface samples have been collected from the 100%-owned, 20-acre Beaver Property, near Cobalt, Ontario, where a work program has just started on these patented claims. The Beaver Mine operated from 1907 to 1940 and produced 7.1 million ounces of silver and 139,000 pounds of cobalt.

Frank Basa further stated: “Since March we have completed nearly $2.6 million in strictly hard dollar financings. We are now extremely well positioned to deliver further shareholder value as we focus on successful implementation of various initiatives related to a robust cobalt market with continued powerful dynamics in its favor in the year ahead. With action on multiple fronts, we look forward to providing investors with strong news flow throughout the summer as we build on a leadership role in the northern Ontario Cobalt-Silver Camp.”
