Energold Drilling Corp. (the "Company" or "Energold") announces today that it has proposed to offer up to $12.5 million principal amount of secured convertible debentures ("CDs") for a term of three years. The CDs will bear interest at a rate of 12.85% calculated and compounded annually and payable quarterly. The CDs will be convertible into common shares of the Company at a conversion price of $3.00 per share.
At any time after July 21, 2016, the Company may, with 90 days written notice, prepay the CDs, in whole or in part, including all outstanding interest accumulated to the date of prepayment, with an additional payment of 1.5% of the amount to be prepaid, which shall be adjusted downward for each day that redemption occurs after July 21, 2016.
Upon the occurrence of a change of control, the Company will be required to purchase the CDs for a cash price equal to 110% of the principal amount outstanding plus accrued and unpaid interest.
To secure the obligations of the Company, a general security agreement on all the assets of the Company and specific security agreements regarding (i) 6,980,001 common shares of IMPACT Silver Corp. (TSX-V: IPT) owned by the Company; and (ii) 100% of the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of Dando Drilling International Limited ("Dando") owned by E Global Drilling Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, will be entered into with the potential subscribers of the CDs.
The net proceeds of the CDs will be used for the repayment of the outstanding amount under the Company's $10 million secured convertible debentures maturing on July 21, 2014 and for working capital purposes including, but not limited to, the funding of bolt-on acquisitions.
Closing of the offering is anticipated to occur on or before July 21, 2014 and is subject to receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX-V.
The securities have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 (the "1933 Act"), as amended, or under any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold, directly or indirectly, or delivered within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons (as defined in Regulation S under the 1933 Act), absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
