The merger between two Western Australian gold companies is almost complete after the WA Supreme Court signed off on the move.

Dacian Gold (DCN) and NTM Gold (NTM) announced the merger back in November last year, with DCN to buy all of NTM’s issued shares.

The takeover is now one step closer to being finished. Following the Supreme Court’s approval, Dacian and NTM Gold can head to ASIC.

NTM will lodge the court orders with the securities regulator on Monday, March 8.

Once that occurs, the merger will become legally effective, and it’s expected NTM’s stock will be suspend from trading on the ASX.

The gold company’s shares will then be removed from the stock exchange on Monday, March 15.

Under the terms of the merger, NTM shareholders will receive one new Dacian share for every 2.7 NTM shares they hold.

All of the new DCN shares will be issued on Monday, March 15, and enter trading on Wednesday, March 17.

Following the positive merger update, shares in both West Australian gold companies ended Friday’s trading session in the green.

NTM Gold shares were up 4 per cent at 13 cents per share, while Dacian Gold shares were up 2.86 per cent at 36 cents per share.
