BRC DiamondCore in TSX delisting review

30 april 2009

Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), which is reviewing the common shares of BRC DiamondCore has granted the troubled diamond company 30 days to meet listing requirements on the bourse as part of a delisting review.
"TSX is reviewing the common shares of the company with respect to meeting the continued listing requirements," reads a brief TSX statement to shareholders.
The primary concern for the review was the drop in market capitalisation.
BRC's current liabilities of CAD13.9 million (USD1=CAD1.18) for the year to end-December 2008 surpasses its current assets of CAD882 216, of which the cash component is short of CAD200 000.
BRC faces a liquidation hearing in South Africa in June.
Applications were brought by two groups claiming they are owned nearly ZAR10m (USD1=ZAR8.46) in total, and that there appeared little chance BRC was able to pay them.
BRC suspended its exploration work in South Africa to preserve cash generated from sales of diamonds produced during bulk sampling work.
