Tuesday, November 26, 2019 5:55 PM
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / November 26, 2019 / Paringa Resources Limited ("Paringa" or "Company") (NASDAQ:PNRL, ASX:PNL) is pleased to advise, further to its announcement on September 18, 2019, that it has granted a royalty over the Company's Buck Creek Mining Complex to SP2 Royalty Co, LLC (an entity of which certain funds advised by Tribeca Global Resources Credit Pty Limited ("Tribeca") are members) to raise US$9.0 million (before costs) ("Royalty Financing").
Proceeds from the Royalty Financing have been received and will be used to fund Poplar Grove's mine ramp-up to positive cashflow.
The Company has also executed an amendment to the Term Loan Facility ("TLF") with Tribeca (as agent) ("Term Loan Amendment") to, amongst other things, resize the second tranche of the TLF from US$16.0 million to US$10.0 million (Unit 3 capex is projected to be US$5.9 million), and to ensure that the previously announced termination of the Company's supply agreement with Big Rivers Electric Corporation and issues arising from a funding gap do not result in any events of default under the TLF.
The key terms of the Royalty Financing are 2.0% of gross revenue from all coal leases within the Buck Creek Mining Complex for the life of the mine.
