Rise Gold Announces Amendment of Warrants

The company had actually been in the news this past Friday and that particular news had been responsible for the selloff that had been triggered in the stock. Rise Gold announced that it had put plans in place for the extension of the expiry dates by two years of as many as 6,308,310 common share purchase warrants. However, at the same time, it is necessary to keep in mind that a provision for an accelerated expiry is also going to be put in place.

However, it was clear the news was not welcomed at all by investors, and that led to the selloff in the stock on Friday. The warrants had been issued by Rise Gold from July 3, 2019, through to September 21, 2020. The expiry dates had been in the ranges of July 31, 2022, to September 21, 2022. Not a single of the share purchase warrants have yet been exercised by the holders yet.

The amendments made by the company came into effect back on June 18, 2022. At this point in time, it remains to be seen if the sentiments of the investors turn or not. It may be a good idea to keep an eye on the Rise Gold stock today.
