Northland files a request for composition proceedings
Luxembourg, November 27, 2014 – Northland Resources SE (OSE: NAUR, Frankfurt: NPK, Nasdaq OMX/First North: NAURo – “Northland”, “NRSE” or the “Company”) announces that its Swedish subsidiaries Northland Resources AB (publ) and Northland Logistics AB today has filed a request for composition proceedings with the Luleå District Court.
In accordance with earlier announcements, Northland Resources AB (publ) (“NRAB”), Northland Logistics AB (“NLAB”) and Northland Sweden AB (“NSAB”) have on November 11, 2014 presented a composition proposal to its creditors. A similar composition proposal has been presented to the creditors in the Norwegian subsidiary Northland Logistics AS (“NLAS”).
As part of the ongoing reorganizations, NRAB and NLAB have filed a request for composition proceedings with the Luleå District Court, where the creditors will vote in respect of the composition proposal.
Since all the creditors in NSAB have claims below SEK 500 000, all creditors will in accordance with the composition proposal receive full payment provided that Northland will receive adequate funding and that the composition proposal will be adopted at the creditors’ meeting in NRAB and NLAB. NSAB has therefore not filed a demand for a composition proposal.
The reorganization plan distributed to all the creditors and appended to the demand for compensation proceedings can be found at the Company’s webpage:
