Board of Directors strengthened in support of the transition
SAVANNAH, Georgia, July 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Hawkeye Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: HWKE) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) to acquire Blue Gold International Limited ("Blue Gold") an entity valued at US $250,000,000, in a share exchange that will result in a reverse takeover of Blue Gold by Hawkeye. The shareholders of Blue Gold International Limited will hold upward of 95% of Hawkeye post-acquisition.
Blue Gold is the 90% owner and operator of the Bogoso Prestea goldmine in Ghana, which contains one of the most significant gold concessions in the world-famous Ashanti gold belt. As a diversified gold mining operator looking to acquire other prospective gold properties in Africa and elsewhere, Blue Gold will leverage its significant management expertise and an increasingly robust balance sheet.
The transaction is subject to due diligence and definitive documentation and is expected, by all parties, to close by October 31, 2022. Hawkeye and Blue Gold intend to complete a $6 million funding arrangement prior to July 31, 2022 which will be invested into Blue Gold and serve as working capital during the due diligence period. Hawkeye has conjunctively terminated all other LOI's and discussions with alternative opportunities it has been evaluating, as previously reported, as it believes Blue Gold represents the strongest potential upside for its shareholders.
Hawkeye Chief Executive Officer Corby Marshall commented, "Following extensive analysis, we believe transitioning our strategy to become a diversified gold producer will enable the Company to capitalize on the inflationary and rising interest rate macroeconomic trends and provide the basis for a growing sustainable business. Given the project's location in Ghana's historically significant gold area, the Ashanti gold belt we are confident in our ability to build significant long-term shareholder value. The project has produced approximately 12 Million ounces of gold since 1912."
Dan Owiredu, Chief Executive Officer of Blue Gold, stated, "We are pleased to be reentering the equity capital markets with a primary listing in the US through this transaction with Hawkeye. We actively seek to leverage the equity capital markets at a time of increasing interest in gold, a combination that we believe will also create a strong platform for us to fully develop the proven sulfide resource and the significant unexplored strike."
In support of the transaction the Company appointed Christopher Mulgrew and James Kerby to the Board of Directors of Hawkeye. During the due diligence period, Hawkeye intends to complete a 1 for 10 reverse stock split and change the company name and ticker symbol. There will be a rebranding of the
Company, finalization of the go-to-market plan, recruitment of a new management team, and further modification to the board of directors.
