Colonial Coal President and CEO David Austin acquires 8.95 million shares


David Austin, President and CEO of Colonial Coal Int. {TSX.V: CAD} has confirmed his acquisition of 8.95 million shares in Colonial Coal as a result of the scheme of arrangement with Tuya Energy.

The scheme was recently approved by shareholders and the B.C. court.



This acquisition makes David Austin, the CEO, the single largest shareholder in Colonial Coal, with a holding of some 20 percent.

This aligns David’s interest directly with that of shareholders, and I see that as very positive, personally.

There aren’t many junior Canadian exploration and development companies where the President and CEO holds such a substantial percentage holding in the company, many CEO’s hold little or none at all!
