Tranche 2 face value reduced to $2.1 million from $4 million
Agrees Amended Terms with Arena Investors
This will see the Company split Tranche 2 into two parts, thereby reducing the amount of the end-May 2018 (Tranche 2) drawdown of convertible notes from A$3.8 million (face value of A$4 million) to A$1.995 million (face value of A$2.1 million) and deferring the balance of the original Tranche 2 dawdown until later in June or July 2018. Details of the amendments are listed in Appendix A (see link below). The overall financial commitment by Arena Investors LP to the Company has not changed.
Mustang Managing Director Dr. Bernard Olivier said: "The continued strong support from Arena, a major global institutional investor managing in excess of US$750 million, is testimony to the quality of Mustang's Montepuez Ruby and Caula Vanadium-Graphite projects. The reduction in the original Tranche 2 quantum to be drawn end of May 2018 will result in less potential equity dilution for existing shareholders, but does not adversely affect the funding of the Company's planned project activities in June and July 2018."
