Press release: Stockholm, March 26, 2020 08.45 CET
Sotkamo Silver AB’s wholly owned subsidiary Sotkamo Silver Oy has renegotiated the terms and conditions of its EUR 13,200,000 Senior Secured Fixed Rate Notes 2018 (ISIN:FI4000315379) (the "Notes"). A written voting procedure in accordance with the rules and conditions of the Notes on amendments has been completed today.
As a result, the noteholders have decided to:
- Release the company from the obligation of having one year interest of EUR 1,320,000 on a pledged account;
- Postpone the company’s obligation to collect funds into a pledged account for repayment of the Notes so that instead of depositing EUR 900,000 quarterly starting in Q3 2020 amounting in total EUR 1,800,000 in 2020 and EUR 3,600,000 in 2021 the postponed amounts will be allocated as quarterly deposits of EUR 1,350,000 starting 31 March 2021 amounting in total to EUR 5,400,000;
- Increase a permitted working capital facility from EUR1,000,000 to EUR2,000,000.
The amendments were supported in a written voting procedure by the noteholders representing more than 80 per cent of the nominal amount of the Notes.
The approved amendments will improve the financing cash flow of Sotkamo Silver Oy in 2020.
