Mandalay Resources Corporation Announces Completion of Revised Repurchase Offer and Consent Solicitation in Respect of 5.875% Secured Exchangeable Bonds
TORONTO, May 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mandalay Resources Corporation ("Mandalay" or the "Company") (TSX:MND) announced today that Gold Exchange Limited ("GEL"), an unaffiliated special purpose vehicle incorporated in Jersey, has entered into agreements with respect to a revised repurchase offer (the "Repurchase") and consent solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation") in respect of its U.S.$60,000,000 principal amount 5.875% secured exchangeable bonds due 2019 (the "Bonds").
GEL issued the Bonds in 2014 and loaned the proceeds to a subsidiary of the Company pursuant to the terms of a loan agreement and related funding agreement (the "Loan") which together mirror the principal terms of the Bonds.
As indicated in Mandalay's press release of May 12, 2017, the original repurchase offer and consent solicitation that GEL launched in respect of the Bonds on April 19, 2017 (the "Original Proposed Transaction") was not completed. However, GEL subsequently entered into discussions with Bondholders with respect to implementing alternative arrangements in respect of the Bonds substantially similar to the Original Proposed Transaction. The holders of 100% of the Bonds have now executed a written resolution approving the Repurchase and Consent Solicitation on the same terms as the Original Proposed Transaction except that the interest rate payable on the Bonds has been increased from 5.875% per annum to 6.875% per annum effective as of May 13, 2017. In addition, GEL has agreed to pay each Bondholder a fee equal to 1.0% of the aggregate principal amount of the Bonds held by it that are not repurchased pursuant to the Repurchase.
Pursuant to the Repurchase, GEL has agreed to purchase US$29,950,000 principal amount of the Bonds from the holders thereof at a price of 105% of their principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest at the rate of 6.875% per annum for the period from (and including) May 13, 2017 to (but excluding) May 26, 2017. The Repurchase is expected to be completed on May 26, 2017.
In connection with the Consent Solicitation, the following amendments have been made to the terms of the Bonds:
- extending the maturity date of the Bonds to May 13, 2022;
- deleting a condition of the Bonds that required that beginning on May 14, 2017, as additional security for the Bonds, GEL was required to start depositing into a custody account, the aggregate number of shares of the SPDR Gold Trust issuable upon exchange of the Bonds;
- adding a new covenant to the Bonds pursuant to which GEL will be required to offer to repurchase a proportion of the Bonds outstanding at the relevant time if and to the extent that the contained gold equivalent (in ounces) at Mandalay's Costerfield mine falls below (initially) 232,000 gold equivalent ounces;
- increasing the interest rate payable on the Bonds from 5.875% per annum to 6.875% per annum; and
- reducing the exchange price of the Bonds from US$149.99 to US$135.00.
Mandalay is required to fund any amounts required by GEL to repurchase Bonds pursuant to the Repurchase and all associated fees and expenses (including consent fees). The outstanding amount of the Loan has been reduced by an amount equal to the principal amount of the Bonds repurchased pursuant to the Repurchase and the terms of the Loan have been amended to mirror, where applicable, the amendments to the terms of the Bonds.
Mark Sander, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mandalay, commented, "We are pleased to have completed the revised repurchase transaction with GEL. This revised repurchase agreement lowers our overall cost of debt service going forward, while also reducing the Company's leverage and maintaining its debt net of cash position of nearly zero. Removing the escrow provision on the loan is advantageous for the Company as it allows us full use of our cash for value-adding investments going forward. The updated agreement extends the maturity for the balance of the loan out an additional three years, to 2022. With the repurchase completed, we have increased our capacity to fund growth through acquisitions or internal capital projects with an optimized mix of cash, debt, or equity."
