On January 1, 2015, New Gold completed the previously announced plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) pursuant to which New Gold Inc. acquired all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Bayfield Ventures Corp. ("Bayfield") for consideration of 0.0477 common shares of New Gold for each Bayfield share outstanding. Following the completion of the Arrangement, Bayfield's common shares will cease to be listed for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange, the OTC and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. As soon as practicable thereafter, Bayfield intends to apply to the relevant securities regulatory authorities to cease to be a reporting issuer in each jurisdiction of Canada in which it currently has reporting obligations.
