Denison Announces Closing of CAD$43.5M Financing Arrangement With Anglo Pacific Group PLC






Denison Mines Corp. (TSX:DML) (NYSE MKT:DNN) is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced financing arrangement with Anglo Pacific Group PLC and its wholly owned subsidiary Centaurus Royalties Ltd. for aggregate gross proceeds to Denison of CAD$43,500,000.



The Financing is comprised of (1) a 13-year limited recourse lending arrangement involving a loan from APG to 9373721 Canada Inc. and a further loan from SPV to Denison Mines Inc. each for CAD$40,800,000 and (2) CAD$2,700,000 in proceeds from the sale, to Centaurus, of a stream equal to Denison’s 22.5% share of the proceeds from the toll milling of certain Cigar Lake ore by the McClean Lake mill, once throughput from the McClean Lake mill exceeds 215 million lbs U3O8, from ore received from the Cigar Lake mine on or after July 1, 2016 (the “Stream Arrangement”). DMI and SPV are both wholly owned subsidiaries of Denison.



Each of APG, Centaurus, SPV and DMI have satisfied all conditions precedent to the Financing and the funding of the gross proceeds has been confirmed.



Following the completion of the Financing, Denison continues to own its 22.5% strategic interest in the McClean Lake Joint Venture including the fully licensed and operating McClean Lake uranium mill, which is situated in the infrastructure rich eastern portion of the Athabasca Basin in northern Saskatchewan.



Highlights of the Financing


  • The SPV Loan is limited in its recourse against DMI, such that it is generally repayable only to the extent of Denison’s share of the toll milling revenues earned by the MLJV from the processing of the first 215 million lbs U3O8, from ore received from the Cigar Lake mine on or after July 1, 2016, under the terms of the current Cigar Lake Toll Milling Agreement.
  • No warranty is provided by Denison, DMI or SPV to APG or Centaurus, under the terms of the Lending Arrangement or the Stream Arrangement, regarding the future rate of production at the Cigar Lake Mine and/or the McClean Lake mill, or the amount or collectability of proceeds to be received or receivable by the MLJV in respect of toll milling Cigar Lake ore.
  • Denison will guarantee the limited recourse loan repayments and will grant a second ranking pledge of its shares of DMI to secure performance by DMI of its obligations to pay the SPV Loan. The share pledge is second ranking to Denison’s existing pledge of the shares of DMI to The Bank of Nova Scotia under the terms of its CAD$24,000,000 Letters of Credit Facility.
  • In connection with the closing of the Financing, Denison will grant 1,673,077 share purchase warrants, subject to receipt of regulatory approvals (including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange and the NYSE MKT), in satisfaction of a CAD$435,000 arrangement fee payable to APG. The warrants are expected to have an exercise price of CAD$1.27 per share, and will be exercisable for a period of 3 years immediately following the closing of the Financing. As a result, Denison may receive a further CAD$2,124,808 in proceeds from the exercise of the warrants.
  • Additional details are provided in the Company’s press release dated February 1, 2017.
