Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (TSX-V:NEE) is pleased to announce that it has signed a flexible, unsecured working capital facility with Greenstone Resources II L.P. for up to US$10 million. The Greenstone facility is available in up to five tranches and the Company has drawn the first tranche of US$2.5 million. The Company expects to repay the Greenstone facility with proceeds from the private placement and the Maverix Metals silver stream financings announced on October 15, 2018.
Northern Vertex President and CEO, Kenneth Berry stated, “In advance of closing the Maverix Metals silver stream and private placement, Greenstone has demonstrated their continued support by providing us with a flexible working capital facility. The initial US$2.5 million tranche of the Greenstone facility is convertible into Northern Vertex shares at $0.30 per share and, at Greenstone’s option, will convert into shares or be repaid from the proceeds of the previously announced silver stream and private placement financings. The Company is pleased with the progress to date by Maverix Metals and expects to provide an update on the stream financing and private placement shortly. Greenstone has confirmed their intention to participate in our previously announced private placement and we look forward to a timely closing of these financings. Having recently declared commercial production at our Moss Mine in Arizona, we look forward to updating the market with the details of our continued ramp-up.”
The Company has entered into a definitive agreement with Greenstone Resources II L.P. in respect of an unsecured non-revolving loan facility in the aggregate principal amount of up to US$10 million. The terms of the Greenstone Facility include:
Greenstone is a significant shareholder of the Company holding an aggregate of 51,769,230 common shares of the Company, representing approximately 28.4% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company on an undiluted basis, and accordingly, the transaction is a non-arm’s length transaction under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Upon conversion, if any, in full of the initial US$2.5 million debenture issued today (using an exercise price of Cdn$0.30 and using the Bank of Canada closing exchange rate on November 2, 2018 of US$1 = Cdn$1.3105), Greenstone would receive an aggregate of 10,920,833 additional common shares of the Company, as a result of which it would hold, including the current shares it holds, 62,690,063 common shares of the Company, representing approximately 32.5%, on an undiluted basis, of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company (including the issuance of such shares). This would represent an increase of approximately 4.1% from Greenstone’s current shareholding percentage of the Company.
The Greenstone Facility, and all securities issuable thereunder (other than those in respect of the initial drawdown, which have already been approved) are subject to the acceptance of the Exchange. All securities issued in connection with the Greenstone Facility will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance of the respective securities.
Greenstone has advised the Company that the Greenstone Facility, and any securities acquired thereunder, is being provided for, and held for, investment purposes. Depending on market conditions and other factors, Greenstone advises that it may from time acquire and/or dispose of securities of the Company or continue to hold its current position.
