NOVO SETTLES MILLENNIUM MINERALS LIMITED'S DEBT TO IMC
Novo Resources Corp.'s recently acquired, wholly owned subsidiary, Millennium Minerals Ltd., has settled all debts owed to IMC Resources Gold Holdings Pte. Ltd. and IMC Resources Investments Pte. Ltd. Please see the company's news releases dated
Aug. 4, 2020, and
Sept. 8, 2020,
for further details.
All amounts are in United States dollars, unless indicated otherwise.
Millennium has repaid IMC's secured debt of approximately $50.3-million ($69-million (Australian)) through the payment of $43.7-million ($60-million (Australian)) in cash and the issuance by Novo of 2,656,591 units of Novo at a price of $3.25 (Canadian) per unit. Each unit comprises one common share of Novo and one-half of one transferable share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant entitling the holder to acquire one share at a price of $4.40 (Canadian) for a period of 36 months after the closing of the debt settlement. Novo has provided financing to Millennium to ensure Millennium has sufficient cash to allow repayment of the cash portion of the debt settlement.
Immediately subsequent to the issuance of the units comprising the debt consideration, IMC holds 9.67 per cent of the issued and outstanding common shares of Novo.
The units issued to IMC pursuant to the debt consideration are subject to statutory and TSX Venture Exchange hold periods expiring on Jan. 14, 2021; in addition, a further contractual hold period will apply to half of the units issued to IMC, increasing the hold period for those units to 12 months.
