Directed share issue
The EGM resolved to authorise the Board of Directors during the period up until the next AGM, to resolve on a directed share issue to Joensuun Kauppa and Kone Oy ("JKK") against payment by way of set-off. The authorization includes the issue of shares at a subscription price of SEK 9.90 per share, up to a total amount corresponding to the company’s outstanding debt at the time of the issue, approximately 3.6 MEUR, which JKK then has taken over from the company’s current lenders.
The EGM resolved to approve that the Board enters into an agreement to acquire all shares in TVL Gold 1 LLC at a total purchase price of not more than USD 34 million (approximately SEK 286 million) (the "Purchase Price"). Approximately one third of the purchase price is intended to be paid at the time of closing, which is expected to take place in March 2018, with up to approximately USD 8 million in cash, and by up to approximately USD 3.3 million by issuing a promissory note. The remaining part of the purchase price is intended to be paid through the issuance of a convertible loan. It was noted that the negotiations had not been completely finalised.
The EGM further resolved to authorise the Board of Directors during the period up until the next AGM, to decide to issue a convertible loan of not more than two thirds of the Purchase Price to the holder of the purchase price claim.
