NEWS RELEASE - November 13, 2017
NextSource Materials Inc. (TSX:NEXT) (OTCQB:NSRC) ("NextSource" or the "Company") announces that it intends to move the corporate domicile of the Company to Canada (the "Redomicile"), under the Canada Business Corporations Act ("CBCA") pending stockholder approval. The Company is currently incorporated under the laws of Minnesota.
Management believes that being continued in Canada from Minnesota will assist the Company in advancing its business plan internationally and will provide the Company certain cost savings related to reduced administrative, legal and accounts matters, as well as logically aligning our corporate domicile to where the head office and executive management reside.
The Company will continue to conduct the same business as the Company conducted prior to the Redomicile and will continue to be traded on the TSX under the symbol "NEXT" and on the OTCQB under the symbol "NSRC".
MAJORITY STOCKHOLDER APPROVAL REQUIRED
In order for the Company to complete its proposed corporate Redomicile to Canada, it is required to obtain majority approval (50-percent plus one) from existing stockholders. To this end, the Company has filed a definitive Proxy Statement that is being mailed to all stockholders on or about November 13, 2017 ahead of its upcoming 2017 Annual and Special Meeting (the "AGM") of stockholders.
The Board of Directors unanimously recommends that stockholders vote "FOR" this proposal and support the Company's continuing efforts to operate in the most efficient manner and reduce operating expenses wherever possible.
