/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
CALGARY, Dec. 15 /CNW/ - CMQ Resources Inc. ("CMQ") (TSXV:NV) is announcing that it will not be proceeding with the private placement financing and debt restructuring that were previously announced on September 1, 2010. Since the date of the initial announcement of such private placement and debt restructuring, CMQ has been unable to obtain receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals in a manner satisfactory to CMQ and Matco Capital Ltd. ("Matco"), CMQ's principal creditor.
As a result of the failure of this proposal, CMQ remains in default under its existing funding agreement with Matco and does not have any source of capital to continue its operations. CMQ is currently indebted to Matco for approximately $2.7 million, including unpaid interest and as at September 30, 2010 had additional current liabilities of approximately $400,000 with current assets of only $43,000. Matco has the contractual right, as at the date hereof, to enforce its security over all of CMQ's assets, including all of CMQ's exploration properties.
CMQ is attempting to negotiate a funding and forbearance agreement with Matco in respect of such default. There can be no assurances that any such funding or forbearance agreement will be concluded. If a funding and forbearance agreement is reached, the terms may be punitive to CMQ and its shareholders.
CMQ's directors have not made a filing under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA") because the prospect of obtaining financing to fund a CCAA process is remote given the exploratory nature of CMQ's business and the uncertain value of its assets.
CMQ currently has 6,534,670 Common Shares issued and outstanding.
