Amsterdam, Netherlands, November 8, 2013 – Nord Gold N.V. (“Nordgold” or the “Company”, LSE: NORD), the internationally diversified, pure-play gold producer strategically focused on emerging markets, wishes to inform its Canadian resident shareholders that it intends to apply to the applicable securities regulatory authorities in Canada for a decision that the Company is no longer a reporting issuer in Canada.
If the decision is granted, the Company will no longer be a reporting issuer in any jurisdiction in Canada and, as a result, the Company will no longer be required to file financial statements and other continuous disclosure documents pursuant to Canadian securities laws. A decision permitting the Company to cease to be a reporting issuer in Canada will not affect the Company’s listing on the London Stock Exchange (the “LSE”) or its reporting obligations in the Netherlands or the United Kingdom. In this regard, Canadian resident shareholders will continue to have access to all financial statements and other continuous disclosure documents required to be filed by the Company under the laws of the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, as well as the rules of the LSE. Such documentation can be found on the Company’s website at www.nordgold.com
