Caracal Gold plc, the East African gold explorer, developer and producer with over 1,300,000oz of JORC-compliant gold resources, is pleased to announce revised terms of the existing Mill End Financing Facility (the “Mill End Financing”).
Settlement of Mill End Facility
On 22 June 2022 the Company entered into a debt finance arrangement with Mill End Capital Limited (“Mill End”) for the principal amount of US$1,500,000. This was intended to be a short-term financing facility, but due to delays and the withdrawal of financing facilities that had been under negotiation, the terms and amount payable under the Mill End Financing had to be renegotiated. The Company is pleased to announce that agreement has been reached with Mill End on revised financing terms.
The total amount payable by the Company to Mill End is US$1,823,258.
The Company will repay the Mill End Financing as follows:
· Payment of US$250,000 by 17 May 2023;
· Further payments amounting to US$150,000 by 7 June 2023;
· The Company paying US$600,000 by no later than five days after Placing Shares (“Placing Shares”) are admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange Main Market pursuant to the prospectus currently being prepared by the Company being published; and
· The Company paying US$823,258 in cash, or failing the ability to make the payment in cash by the issue of Ordinary Shares (“Ordinary Shares”) in the company at the issue price of the lower of: 0.035 pence; the issue price of the Placing Shares or (if lower) of any other Ordinary Shares issued by the Company following the date of this announcement, as is equal to US$823,258.
The Company is pleased with this outcome, Robbie McCrae commented:
“We are delighted that we have managed to settle this negotiation on amicable terms. We are grateful to Mill End for their understanding and support”.
