SilverCrest Metals Inc. (TSX: SIL) (NYSE American: SILV) announces that it has received notice from National Bank Financial Inc. purporting to terminate its obligations pursuant to an agreement dated March 11, 2020 whereby NBF had asked for and agreed to purchase on a “bought deal” basis 9,100,000 common shares at price of $8.25 per common share. The “bought deal” financing was announced by SilverCrest on March 11, 2020. NBF advised SilverCrest that the reason for the purported termination was based on the “disaster out” clause of the Agreement.
The Agreement between SilverCrest and NBF created a binding legal obligation on the part of NBF to complete the transaction as is customary in Canada for “bought deal” financings. SilverCrest is of the view that NBF is not entitled to terminate the Agreement. In SilverCrest’s opinion, the novel coronavirus pandemic considered by NBF as the basis for terminating this Agreement was fully evident when the “bought deal” financing was agreed upon with expectations that the precious metals market would respond positively to this known risk. Accordingly, SilverCrest intends to pursue its legal remedies against NBF for breach of NBF’s obligations under the terms of the Agreement.
