Trevali Mining Corporation Amends $52.5 Million Original Note Indenture
On December 30, 2015, Trevali Mining Corporation (“Trevali” or the “Company”) (TSX: TV) amended, by way of entering into a supplemental note indenture, its original note indenture with its senior secured holders (“Noteholders”) of its $52.5 million senior secured notes (each a “Note” and collectively the “Notes”) placed on May 30, 2014 (the “May 2014 Offering”) to extend and expand the debt facility. Under the amended agreement, the Company issued an additional $8.4 million in new Notes (“New Notes”) and received a waiver for the Company’s $7.5 million amortization payment scheduled to be made on August 30, 2016 – which will now be deferred until August 30, 2017.
In relation to the above amendments and issuance of New Notes, the 6,468,000 five-year Warrants issued in connection with the May 2014 Offering were repriced downward from $1.26 to $0.475 and the term of such Warrants was extended to a new five-year term. In addition, in connection with the New Notes issued, an additional 1,034,880 five-year Warrants were issued having an exercise price of $0.475.
Dr. Mark Cruise, President and CEO of Trevali, stated: “We are very pleased to receive such a strong vote of confidence from our Noteholders, leading Canadian financial institutions, as we continue to advance our Caribou Zinc Mine towards commercial production. Along with the Company, all stakeholders in the Caribou mine – the Province of New Brunswick, our First Nation partners and Glencore – continue to strongly support our operations and are working diligently to ensure the ongoing success of the project.”
Trevali is a zinc-focused, base metals mining company with one producing operation in Peru and another currently undergoing commissioning in Canada. In Peru, the Company is actively producing zinc and lead-silver concentrates from its 2,000-tonne-per-day Santander mine. In Canada, Trevali owns the Caribou mine and mill, Halfmile mine and Stratmat deposit all located in the Bathurst Mining Camp of northern New Brunswick. The Company is currently commissioning its 3,000-tonne-per-day Caribou mine.
