TORONTO, June 8, 2017 /CNW/ - Treasury Metals Inc. ("Treasury" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, further to its press release dated May 8, 2017, the Company and its lenders, Extract Advisors LLC ("Extract") and Loinette Company Leasing Ltd. ("Loinette" and together with Extract, the "Lenders"), have completed an amendment (the "Loan Extension") to the existing US$4.4 million convertible term loan which is comprised of two tranches (the "Term Loan"). The Loan Extension amended, among other terms, the maturity date of the Term Loan, extending it to April 2, 2019, from September 20, 2017.
Pursuant to the terms of the Loan Extension, US$2.2 million of the Term Loan has been amended to be convertible at the election of the Lenders into common shares in the capital of the Company (the "Common Shares") at a conversion price fixed at C$0.90 per Common Share, representing approximately a 37.5% premium to the closing price of the Common Shares on May 5, 2017 prior to entering into the binding term sheet ("Tranche 1").
The remaining principal amount of US$2.2 million of the Term Loan is unchanged and continues to be convertible into Common Shares at a price equal to C$0.588 per Common Share and will have no further amendments ("Tranche 2"). The Loan Extension has been superseded with a definitive agreement entered into by the Company and the Lender on June 7, 2017. Further details related to the Term Loan Extension were provided in a press release issued by the Company on May 8, 2017.
Chris Stewart, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased with the ongoing progress being made at Treasury, including the recent completion of an $8 million equity offering and the continued support from our convertible debenture lenders, Extract and Loinette.
