Nemaska Lithium and Northvolt Announce Signature of Agreement in Principle for Supply of Lithium Hydroxide

 

 

 

 

 

Nemaska Lithium Inc. (TSX:NMX) (OTC:NMKEF) and Northvolt AB are pleased to announce the signature of an agreement in principle providing for the supply by the Corporation to Northvolt of battery grade lithium hydroxide.

 

 

Under this agreement in principle, Nemaska Lithium agreed to supply, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Nemaska Lithium Shawinigan Transformation Inc., and Northvolt agreed to purchase, on a take-or-pay basis, up to 5,000 but not less than 3,500 metric tonnes per year of lithium hydroxide produced at the Corporation’s commercial plant in Shawinigan, for a 5-year supply period commencing upon the start of commercial production at both the Shawinigan Plant and Northvolt’s projected Skellefteå factory in Sweden (the “N Factory”).

 

 

In connection with this supply of lithium hydroxide, Northvolt has agreed to deliver to the Corporation a EUR 10M promissory note which, at the Corporation’s option, can be converted into voting shares of Northvolt in connection with the N Factory funding, or redeemed at cost plus an agreed-upon interest rate.

 

 

“We are pleased with this first step in establishing a strategic partnership between Northvolt and Nemaska, as we both share the same vision and values of facilitating access to green energy for the benefit of humanity and pushing the boundaries to do so”, declared Guy Bourassa, President & Chief Executive Officer of Nemaska Lithium.

 

 

The supply of lithium hydroxide and the issue of the promissory note, as contemplated, are subject to the conclusion of a mutually satisfactory definitive supply agreement and to the prior approval of the board of directors of both parties.
