Prophecy Proposes Issuance of Units for Debt and Share Consolidation
Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) - Prophecy Development Corp. (“Prophecy” or the “Company”) (TSX:PCY, Frankfurt:1P2) announces that it has entered into a Debt Settlement Agreement with Linx Partners Ltd. (“Linx”), a company controlled by Mr. John Lee, Executive Chairman of Prophecy, and Mr. Lee pursuant to which, the Company has agreed, subject to the approval of shareholders at the Company’s upcoming 2016 Annual General Meeting to be held at 9:00 a.m. (PST) on June 2, 2016 (the “2016 AGM”) and acceptance by the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”), to issue 75,000,000 units (the “Units”) at a deemed price of $0.02 per Unit to Mr. Lee, in satisfaction of $1,500,000 of indebtedness currently owed by the Company to Linx under the revolving Credit Facility Agreement dated March 12, 2015, as amended. Each Unit consists of one Common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share”) and one Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire an additional Share at a price of $0.04 per Share for a period of five years from the date of issuance.
In addition to providing cash loans to the Company through Linx, Mr. Lee has also personally participated in both of the Company's equity financings in 2015. The proposed debt settlement significantly reduces the Company's debt leverage and further aligns management’s interests with the Company’s.
The Company also announces that it proposes to consolidate its issued and outstanding Shares on the basis of one (1) new Share for every one hundred (100) old Shares outstanding (the “Consolidation”) subject to the approval of shareholders at the Company’s 2016 AGM and acceptance by the TSX. The effective date of the Consolidation, if approved, will occur immediately after TSX approval.
The Company further announces that it has entered into a subsequent consulting agreement with Cor Capital Inc., who has agreed to provide certain investor relations and shareholder communication services to the Company in exchange for the issuance of 300,000 Common shares through the Company’s Share-Based Compensation Plan which was approved by shareholders at the Company’s annual general meeting of shareholders held on June 19, 2014. There are no further fee commitments (in cash or shares) to Cor Capital Inc. for its service to the Company.
