Jeff Clark – “P2 Gold (PGLDF; V.PGLD) Announces Strategic Debt Settlement and Financing to Fuel Project Development”






In a significant move to strengthen its financial position and advance its project pipeline, P2 Gold announced yesterday the successful closure of a crucial debt settlement and the initial tranche of a convertible debenture offering, injecting US$1,362,000 into the company’s coffers.



Strategic Debt Settlement with Waterton Nevada Splitter



P2 Gold has reached an agreement with Waterton Nevada Splitter, LLC, an affiliate of the investment giant Waterton Precious Metals Fund II Cayman, LP, to settle outstanding debts related to the acquisition of the Gabbs Project. The settlement includes a mix of cash payments totaling US$1.25 million spread over two years and the issuance of 5,231,869 shares at a price of C$0.07 per share. At only 4.6% dilution, this move not only alleviates the company’s immediate financial obligations but also solidifies Waterton’s position as a significant stakeholder, now controlling approximately 19.9% of P2 Gold’s issued and outstanding shares.



Convertible Debenture Offering to Fuel Growth



Off the top, let’s clarify: A debenture is a type of debt instrument that is not secured by physical assets or collateral; they’re backed only by the general creditworthiness and reputation of the issuer. In conjunction with the debt settlement, P2 Gold has initiated a non-brokered private placement of convertible debenture units, aiming to raise up to 1700 units with each Unit being priced at C$1,000. Each Unit will consist of a convertible debenture and 12,500 share purchase warrants, offering investors a strategic pathway into P2 Gold’s equity. The convertible debentures feature a 7.5% interest rate, with an innovative option for interest payment in shares, subject to market conditions and regulatory approval.



This financing is earmarked primarily to fulfill obligations under the Termination Agreement with Waterton, demonstrating P2 Gold’s commitment to leveraging strategic financing structures to advance its exploration and development projects, notably the Gabbs Project in Nevada.



The Gabbs Project – A Cornerstone Asset



The Gabbs Project stands as a cornerstone asset for P2 Gold, with the company granting a 2% net smelter returns royalty to Waterton, a portion of which has been assigned to Franco-Nevada Corporation. This project represents a significant part of P2 Gold’s strategy to develop precious metals and copper resources in the western United States and British Columbia.



Looking Ahead


P2 Gold’s recent financial maneuvers, including the debt settlement and convertible debenture offering, are strategic steps aimed at strengthening the company’s balance sheet and accelerating the development of its key projects. With the backing of major stakeholders like Waterton and the innovative financing through the convertible debenture offering, P2 Gold is well-positioned to advance its exploration activities and further develop its project portfolio.



The completion of these financial arrangements, subject to regulatory approvals, marks a pivotal moment for P2 Gold, setting the stage for an exciting phase of growth and development in its pursuit of valuable mineral discoveries.



The market reacted favorable to this news yesterday, sending the stock up 18%. For the first time in the new year, the stock is above its 50-day moving average (in black in the chart below), but below its 200-day moving average (pink). For me, this is typically a bullish sign, and a period in which the strength of the stock is tested. Should we hit the 200 day, we could be seeing early signals that the juniors are starting to connect with the flourishing price of gold, which in the last few days has really caught the eyes of market-watchers everywhere.
