Northcliff Announces Loan Financing
October 14, 2020 Vancouver, BC - Northcliff Resources Ltd. ("Northcliff" or the "Company") (TSX: NCF) announces that it has entered into a $400,000 Loan Agreement (the "Loan") with Todd Sisson (NZ) Limited ("Todd"), a subsidiary of the Todd Corporation, the Company's largest shareholder.
The Loan is secured, will bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum and has a term of 12 months. Interest will be payable at maturity. The loan and accrued interest is repayable at any time by the Company without penalty, or can be settled at maturity, either through issuances of shares in the Company ("Share Settlement") or transfer of part of the Company's interest in the Sisson Project Limited Partnership and its general partner, Sisson Mines Ltd. ("Partnership Settlement"), at the election of Todd. The conversion price ("Conversion Price") used for the Share Settlement or Partnership Settlement will be the higher of the 5-day or 30-day volume weighted average share price of the Company on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") at the maturity date.
For the Share Settlement, the maximum discount (currently 25%) allowed under the TSX rules will be applied to the Conversion Price. Northcliff will be required to obtain disinterested shareholder approval to issue any shares in excess of 19,113,182 shares (10% of currently issued and outstanding common shares).
Alternatively, the general and limited partnership interest to be transferred under the Partnership Settlement will be determined as the percentage that the Loan plus accrued interest represents of the implied value of the Sisson Partnership based on the Conversion Price.
In the event the loan is settled through shares of the Company, any remaining balance after issuance of 19,113,182 shares may be settled through transfer of a general and limited partnership interest.
The Loan terms have been conditionally accepted by TSX and the funds will be used for working capital purposes.
