Gold Royalties Corporation Adopts Shareholder Rights Plan

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/21/13 -- Gold Royalties Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GRO) ("Gold Royalties") reports that its board of directors (the "Board") has adopted a shareholder rights plan agreement (the "Rights Plan") designed to encourage fair and equal treatment of all shareholders in connection with any takeover bid for Gold Royalties.

The Rights Plan is similar to rights plans adopted by other Canadian companies and has not been adopted in response to any pending or threatened takeover bid for Gold Royalties nor is Gold Royalties aware of any such effort. In addition, the Rights Plan is not intended to prevent a takeover of Gold Royalties or to secure continuance in office of management or the directors.

While the Rights Plan is effective immediately, it remains subject to regulatory approval, as well as ratification by Gold Royalties' shareholders within six months of its adoption. The Company will be seeking shareholder ratification of the Rights Plan at its 2013 annual meeting (the "2013 AGM").

The primary objective of the Rights Plan is to provide the Board and shareholders with sufficient time to fully consider any takeover bid for Gold Royalties and provide the Board will more time to explore and, if appropriate, pursue other alternatives to maximize shareholder value.

The Rights Plan attaches one right to each common share now existing and all shares issued in the future (the "Rights") and the Rights are not exercisable or independently transferable until separated from the underlying common share ("Separation"). Separation occurs 10 trading days after an individual or group (the "Bidder") acquires or seeks to acquire 20% or more of the voting securities of Gold Royalties (a "Take Over Bid"). Upon Separation, the Rights attached to the securities held by the Bidder are automatically voided while the remaining Rights are exercisable at a substantial discount. As a result, the Bidder will be substantially diluted thereby providing additional time for competing bids to surface and for the shareholders and Board to assess various options.

Prior to Separation, the Rights Plan is not dilutive and will not affect reported earnings per share or change the way in which shareholders would otherwise trade common shares. Upon Separation, reported earnings per common share on a fully diluted or non-diluted basis, may be affected. Holders of rights who do not exercise upon Separation may suffer substantial dilution along with the Bidder.

If a Bidder inadvertently acquires greater than 20% control of the Corporation's outstanding securities, the Board has the discretion to prevent Separation provided the offending party promptly divests itself of securities in excess of the 20% threshold.

Separation may also be avoided if a Take Over Bid meets certain criteria (a "Permitted Bid"). A Permitted Bid has the following characteristics:


1.  it is required to remain open for 60 days;

2.  any shares tendered under the bid may be withdrawn at any time before
    they are taken up;

3.  if more than 50% of the shares, excluding the Bidder's shares, are
    tendered, the Bidder must make a public announcement to that effect and
    the Take Over Bid must remain open on the same terms for an additional
    10 business days.

The Rights Plan is subject to regulatory acceptance, including from the TSX Venture Exchange, as well as ratification by Gold Royalties' shareholders at the 2013 AGM, failing which the Plan and all Rights issued thereunder will terminate.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
