Vancouver, BC -- Aben Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ABN) (OTCBB: ABNAF) (Frankfurt: E2L1) (the "Company") advises that the Company will be filing for and seeking approval of a consolidation of the Company's issued and outstanding share capital with the TSX Venture Exchange. The intended consolidation will be on a basis of one post-consolidation common share for every six pre-consolidation common shares. This consolidation will reduce the issued and outstanding shares of the Company from 26,963,790 to approximately 4,493,965 shares, assuming no other change in the issued capital.
The Company's outstanding options and warrants will also be adjusted on the same basis (6 for 1) as the common shares, with proportionate adjustments being made to exercise prices.
Fractional common shares will not be issued, and no cash will be paid in lieu of fractional post-consolidation common shares. The number of post-consolidation common shares to be received by a shareholder will be rounded down to the nearest whole common share.
The Board of Directors believes that the proposed share consolidation will better position the Company to raise the funds it requires to finance continuing business activities and to advance its mineral projects.
The Company's articles of incorporation authorize the board of directors to approve certain changes to the Company's capital structure, including the consolidation. As such, shareholder approval is not required.
The consolidation is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company does not intend to change its name or its current trading symbol in connection with the proposed share consolidation.
The effective date of the consolidation will be disclosed in a subsequent news release.
