VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/19/13 -- Bearing Resources Ltd. ("Bearing", or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: BRZ) announces that its Board of Directors, subject to shareholder and TSX.V approval, has approved the re-pricing of a total of 2,135,000 options to purchase common shares ("Options") to an amended exercise price of $0.15 per Option (the "Re-Pricing"). The closing price of the Company's common shares on the TSX.V on Friday, March 15, 2013, prior to the approval of the Re-Pricing, was $0.07. A total of 1,935,000 of the Options had been issued on July 12, 2011 with an original exercise price of $0.72. A further 200,000 Options had been issued on December 15, 2011 at an original exercise price of $0.38.
The Re-Pricing of the Options will be submitted for TSX.V approval shortly and shareholder approval will be sought at the Company's upcoming Annual General Meeting to be held on April 24, 2013. The Re-Pricing of the Options is subject to the approval of a simple majority approval of the Company's shareholders excluding votes attached to shares beneficially owned by insiders to whom options may be granted under the Company's stock option plan or associates of such persons. Prior to the Company's receipt of TSX.V and shareholder approval, none of the Options may be exercised at the revised price.
The Re-Pricing of the Options to insiders, employees and consultants is undertaken to attempt to ensure that the objectives of the Company's stock option plan are fulfilled and to compensate management, who have accepted a significant reduction in their salaries in order to preserve the Company's treasury; and directors, who receive no cash compensation.
