Northland presents composition proposal

Luxembourg, November 11, 2014 – Northland Resources SE (OSE: NAUR, Frankfurt: NPK, Nasdaq OMX/First North: NAURo – together with its subsidiaries “Northland”, “NRSE” or the “Company”) announces that the Swedish subsidiaries, Northland Sweden AB, Northland Resources AB (publ), and Northland Logistics AB (the “Swedish Subsidiaries”) in reorganization presents a composition proposal to its creditors.

The Swedish Subsidiaries in reorganization, in accordance with earlier announcements by the Company, presents a composition proposal to its creditors (the “Proposal”). It is targeted that the Proposal is adopted before the year end and the Proposal is therefore presented before financing has been secured in order to keep the time limits provided in the company reorganization act. The Proposal is also presented at this stage in order to move forward with ongoing discussions with investors and other key stakeholders. It may be noted that a prerequisite for the Swedish Subsidiaries being able to carry out the Proposal is that financing is secured for the Company in order to continue its operations and that the Company is continuously working on securing such a financing.

The Proposal is subject to a majority of the creditors approving the Proposal. If enough preliminary support is given by the creditors, the Proposal will be tried by the Luleå district court (the "Court") at a formal hearing where the creditors will have the opportunity to vote for or against the Proposal.

A similar composition proposal will be presented to the creditors in the Norwegian subsidiary Northland Logistics AS (“NLAS”). NLAS is however not subject to a formal reorganization and the composition proposal will be negotiated with the creditors in accordance with Norwegian law.

The Proposal for Northland Resources AB can be found at the Company’s webpage;
