PERTH, Australia, Feb. 21, 2014 /CNW/ - Mirabela Nickel Limited
(Mirabela or the Company) (ASX: MBN) refers to its previous
announcements relating to the US$45 million loan obtained from a
consortium of holders of the Company's US$395 million 8.75% Senior
Unsecured Notes due 15 April 2018 (Interim Loan). The Interim Loan is being used to provide the Company with liquidity
to operate its business as discussions progress with all of Mirabela's
key stakeholders regarding a comprehensive restructuring.
The Company and the lenders continue to work together to perfect the
Brazilian collateral documents which secure the Interim Loan, and have
agreed to extend the deadline for the perfection of this security until
midnight, New York time on 24 February 2014. In addition, the Company
and the lenders have extended the deadline for executing a definitive
agreement for restructuring and recapitalising the Company, to the same
date and time.

discussed, at the date of this announcement, no binding agreements for
the restructuring of Mirabela's debt obligations have been concluded
nor has any opportunity or arrangement sufficiently progressed to be
announced to the market. No assurance can be given at this stage that
any definitive agreements or arrangements will be reached with any
party that the Company may be in discussions with.
