MAG Silver Files Preliminary Base Shelf Prospectus
Vancouver, B.C. MAG Silver Corp. (TSX:MAG) (NYSE American:MAG) ("MAG") today announced that it has filed a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus with the securities commissions in each of the provinces of Canada, except Quebec. The base shelf prospectus will allow MAG to offer up to US$200,000,000 of common shares, preferred shares, debt securities, subscription receipts, units and warrants from time to time over a 25-month period after Canadian securities regulatory authorities have issued a receipt for the final short form base shelf prospectus. The specific terms of any future offering of securities (if any), will be set forth in a shelf prospectus supplement. The Company has filed this base shelf prospectus to maintain financial flexibility but has no immediate intentions to undertake an offering.
A corresponding shelf registration statement on Form F-10 will be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the U.S./Canada Multijurisdictional Disclosure System at the time of filing of the final short form base shelf prospectus. Once filed, a copy of the registration statement will be available on EDGAR at www.sec.gov.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation to buy such securities in the United States. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
A copy of the preliminary short form base shelf prospectus can be found on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
