As depicted on our last note and in the chart above, the downward trend of the stock price continued this period. It is now evident that after an unsuccessful merger proposal, an attempt was made to take over the company's helm with the issuance of a questionable yellow proxy.
As referred to in the Sept 11 release: Messrs. Kammourie and Dingsdale did not consent to be included as part of the nominees proposed by a group of concerned shareholders for election at the Annual General Meeting on September 14, 2018.
The confusion probably influenced the outcome but in the end the current management still prevailed with 58% of the vote. However, valuation was certainly impacted in the process - WATR.V went from $0.22 in March 2018 to $0.06 cents today.
Despite the issued encountered, WATR.V has developed leads with mining companies in Quebec, Ontario, and Western Canada. With financing announced prior a consulting contract, it appears that the company is making progress on that front. Insiders also have been busy buying.
However, updates on the KSA project which were discussed earlier in the year have not been provided to the market. Moreover, uncertainty around the proponents of the yellow proxy are real as one of the "concerned shareholder" previously appeared on the Midas Letter earlier in the year.
With a 50% completion on a financing offer at $0.07 cents (warrant at $0.12 cents), WATR.V is pretty much de-risked after a failed proxy.
