(TSX-V: JFI) ("Jemi Fibre" or the "Company") announced today that it has entered into a term sheet with a U.S. based institutional lender (the "Lender") under which, subject to certain conditions, the Company will borrow an aggregate maximum principal amount of $25,000,000 (the “Loan”) to be secured in a senior position against the Company’s private timberlands. The Loan will be due 10 years from the date of advance and will bear interest at competitive, long-term, institutional rates.
