Lund Announces Intention to Terminate SEC Reporting
| ||Lund Gold Ltd. (TSX-V: LGD) ("Lund") today announced its intention to file a Form 15F with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), in order to voluntarily terminate the registration of its common shares under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). Lund expects that termination of the registration of its common shares will become effective 90 days after the date of filing of the Form 15F with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). However, as a result of the filing of a Form 15F, Lund's obligation to file certain reports with the SEC will be immediately suspended.|
Under SEC rules, a foreign private issuer such as Lund may deregister a class of its securities under the Exchange Act, and terminate the associated reporting obligations, if, among other conditions, that class of securities is held of record by fewer than 300 persons worldwide or less than 300 persons resident in the United States.
Lund believes that the costs associated with continuing the registration of its common shares under the Exchange Act, in particular the costs associated with complying with the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, outweigh the benefits received by Lund from maintaining its registration.
Lund will continue to meet its Canadian continuous disclosure obligations through filings with the applicable Canadian securities regulators. All of Lund's filings can be found at the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at www.sedar.com. Lund is currently up-to-date with all of its filings in both Canada and the United States and is currently in full compliance with the internal control and related provisions of Canadian securities laws.
