VANCOUVER, July 21, 2022 - Gold Standard Ventures Corp.
(NYSE AMERICAN: GSV) (TSX: GSV) (“Gold Standard” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that leading independent proxy advisory firms, Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. (“ISS”) and Glass Lewis & Co. (“Glass Lewis”) have each recommended Gold Standard security holders (“Security Holders”) vote “FOR” the proposed acquisition by Orla Mining Ltd.
(“Orla”) at the upcoming special meeting of the Security Holders (the “Meeting”) to be held on August 9, 2022.
ISS and Glass Lewis are leading independent, third party proxy advisory firms who, among other services, provide proxy voting recommendations to pension funds, investment managers, mutual funds and other institutional shareholders.
In their report ISS stated, “The proposed amalgamation makes strategic sense as the arrangement appears to represent the best alternative among the opportunities available to improve the ability to increase shareholder value, and provides access to a strong balance sheet and increased cash flow generation to fund the construction of the company's assets and future exploration initiatives at reduced dilution, financing, development, and execution risk.”
Glass Lewis’ report noted, “the arrangement affords continuing investors exposure to a considerably larger, financially stronger and more strategically diverse enterprise with suitable development expertise and a clearer path towards stable advancement of Gold Standard’s South Railroad Project.”
