CMQ provides update on indebtedness

CALGARY, April 2, 2014 /CNW/ - CMQ Resources Inc. (TSXV: NV) ("CMQ") is providing an update regarding the previously announced receipt of a notice of intention to enforce security (the "Notice") from Matco Investments Ltd. ("Matco").  On September 24, 2013 CMQ announced that it was indebted to Matco and its affiliates in the aggregate amount of $7,545,000, comprised of: (i) $4,000,000 represented by outstanding debentures plus accrued interest thereon of $544,000; (ii) $1,000,000 in respect of previous secured advances; (iii) $1,650,000 unsecured advances; and (iv) aggregate accrued interest on secured and unsecured advances of $351,000, and had received a notice from Matco of its intention to enforce its security.

On November 5, 2013 CMQ issued a press release indicating Matco had previously agreed to forbear until October 20, 2013 from enforcing its rights and remedies against CMQ in respect of substantially all amounts for which CMQ was previously indebted to Matco.  Such forbearance period has elapsed and Matco currently remains both entitled and able to enforce on its existing security and pursue such other remedies as may be available to Matco in connection with the satisfaction and repayment of all outstanding amounts owed by CMQ.  As at March 31, 2014 CMQ is indebted to Matco and its affiliates in the aggregate amount of $8,434,115, comprised of: (i) $4,000,000 represented by outstanding debentures plus accrued interest thereon of $733,562; (ii) $1,000,000 in respect of previous secured advances; (iii) $2,199,663 unsecured advances; and (iv) aggregate accrued interest on secured and unsecured advances of $500,890.

CMQ continues to engage in discussions with Matco in an effort to attempt to negotiate the potential further forbearance of enforcement on its indebtedness and additional financing required in connection with its existing projects.  There can be no assurances that such additional forbearance or any viable financing will be obtained.  In the event that no such additional forbearance or financing from Matco can be obtained, CMQ expects that it will be unable to continue its operations and to operate as a going concern. 

Matco is a private corporation controlled by Mr. Ronald Mathison, a director of CMQ.  Matco is a control person of CMQ, holding approximately 49.99% of the issued and outstanding shares of CMQ.  Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
