First Global Data Ltd (CVE:FGD) reported that it was recently served with a claim by Fountain Asset Corp. This application has been started in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. In the submission, the company is seeking an order that it provide to Fountain options to enroll for and purchase 3.375 million common shares of the firm at $0.10 per share depending on the terms of a Financial Advisor deal dated August 29, 2015.
First Global Data maintains that Fountain is not entitled to get these options for many reasons. Fountain is even seeking a declaration that it is entitled to register for and purchase 3.5 million common shares of the firm at $0.11 per share following a warrant certificate, recorded August 31, 2015. The company asserts that Fountain is not entitled to exercise the warrants.
First Global further mentions, as it would like to state that its shareholders comprehend, that Fountain had an active role in forcing the firm to issue 26 million common shares in FY2015 in what was apparently an unrelated deal. The firm has noted previously and as of now is considering appropriate possibilities of recourse in attempt to recover these shares.
The firm is in the course of probing Fountain’s allegations. Its management considers that the legal proceeding started against the firm is without merit and plans to vigorously defend it.
