PERTH, Australia, June 16, 2015 /CNW/ - Mirabela Nickel Limited (Mirabela or the Company) (ASX: MBN) wishes to advise that, further to its announcement dated 3 June 2015, Mirabela Investments Pty Ltd (MIPL), in its capacity as bare trustee, holds, as at 15 June 2015, 745,185 MBN Shares on behalf of former holders of the 8.75% senior notes (Notes) due 2018 (Former Noteholders), being MBN Shares that the Former Noteholders were entitled to receive in connection with the satisfaction and discharge of the claims of Former Noteholders under the deed of company arrangement dated 13 May 2014 (DOCA) and the Notice and Letter of Transmittal dated 4 June 2014.
To date, the Company has not received any cash out instructions pursuant to the DOCA and the Notice and Letter of Transmittal (Cash Out Instructions) in respect of any of the remaining 745,185 MBN Shares held by MIPL.

If any Cash Out Instructions are received by the close of business on 16 June 2015 from Former Noteholders, then the MBN Shares that are the subject of those instructions will be sold on the next Cash Out Sale Date, scheduled for 29 June 2015.
The Company encourages any Noteholder who did not tender their Notes through ATOP (the Automated Tender Offer Program facility of the Depositary Trust Company), or who has not issued a Cash Out Instruction to MIPL, to contact the Company as soon as possible in order to receive the consideration to which they are entitled.
