On March 8, 2023, Pan American obtained an interim order (the “Interim Order”) from the Supreme Court of British Columbia (the “Court”) authorizing the holding of the Special Meeting and matters relating to the conduct of the Special Meeting. At the Special Meeting, Shareholders will be asked to pass a special resolution (the “Arrangement Resolution”) to approve the proposed plan of arrangement involving Pan American and Legacy Lithium Corp. (“Legacy”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pan American, which gives effect to the Transaction. The Transaction will be carried out pursuant to the terms of an amended and restated arrangement agreement dated March 3, 2023 between Pan American and Legacy (the “Arrangement Agreement”).
The Meeting Materials contain important information regarding the Transaction, how Shareholders can participate and vote at the Special Meeting and the reasons for the unanimous determination of the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) that the Transaction is in the best interest of the Company and is fair to Shareholders. Shareholders should carefully review all of the Meeting Materials, as they contain important information concerning the Transaction and the rights and entitlements of Shareholders thereunder. The Meeting Materials have been filed by the Company on SEDAR and are available under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com.
The Board unanimously recommends that Shareholders vote FOR the Arrangement Resolution.
Pursuant to the terms of the Interim Order, Shareholders of record at the close of business on February 27, 2023 (the “Record Date”) will be entitled to vote at the Special Meeting. Each registered Shareholder of Pan American whose name is entered on the securities register of the Company at the close of business on the Record Date is entitled to one vote for each share registered in his, her or its name. The deadline for returning proxies for the Special Meeting is Thursday, April 6, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. (PST) (or no later than 48 hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and statutory holidays, prior to the date on which the Special Meeting, or any postponement or adjournment thereof, is held).

For any questions, Shareholders can contact the Company at firstname.lastname@example.org. All of the Meeting Materials can be downloaded from the Company’s website at www.panam-energy.com and also from the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
Pursuant to the Transaction, Pan American proposes to distribute common shares of Legacy (“Legacy Common Shares”) to existing Shareholders on the record date of the Transaction, such that each Shareholder as of such record date, following the Transaction, will hold: (i) one new common share of the Company for each common share of the Company held on such record date and (ii) one-fifth of a Legacy Common Share for each common share of the Company held on such record date. Following the Transaction, Legacy will no longer be a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Subject to approval by the Shareholders, the Company will seek a final order from the Court following the Special Meeting to approve the Transaction.
Reasons for the Transaction
The Company believes that the Transaction is in the best interests of the Company in order to unlock the value in the Green Energy Property, which the Company feels is not reflected in the Company’s current share price, by transferring the Green Energy Property to a separate entity. By completing the Transaction, the Company will allow Shareholders to continue to benefit from the advancement of the Green Energy Property, and experience any value creation resulting from the Transaction in the Company and Legacy. Additionally, the Company believes that, over time, the Transaction will allow the Company to concentrate its efforts on its other projects, while Legacy focuses on the advancement of the Green Energy Property.
