Sydney, Australia, Nov 24, 2011 - (ABN Newswire) - The Directors of Western Australian gold explorer and developer, Mutiny Gold Ltd (ASX:MYG.AX) are pleased to advise shareholders that Resolution 7 relating to the Issue of Options as set out in the AGM Notice of Meeting ("NOM") issued on 27 October 2011 has been withdrawn resulting in a significantly more favourable exercise price for the Options.
On the 10th of November 2011 Mutiny announced that it had secured a milestone Project Loan and hedging facility with leading global investment bank, Credit Suisse for the Company's Deflector Gold Copper Project Definitive Feasibility Study as well as funding to complete the acquisition of its flagship Gullewa Project.
In the NOM, the Company, in Resolutions 6 and 7, foreshadowed the issue of 30 million Options to a Financial Institution. At the time of the issue of the NOM the negotiations in regards to the terms of the Options had not been concluded. The Board is pleased to announce that in its negotiations with Credit Suisse it has been agreed that Credit Suisse will be issued 30 million tradeable MYGOB Options with an exercise price of 14 cents each and an expiry date of 27 November 2013 (Resolution 6).
Resolution 7 - Issue of Options - Withdrawn
Under Resolution 7 the price of the Options was to be determined by the Board in their absolute discretion but in any event was to be at least 100% of the volume weighted average market price for Shares calculated over the 5 days on which sales in the Shares were recorded before the 29th of November.
At date of issue of this announcement Resolution 6 will deliver Options at a significantly higher exercise price than Resolution 7 and therefore the board is pleased to advise it is withdrawing Resolution 7.
Mutiny looks forward to the opportunity to meet Shareholders and provide an update on the Company's activities at the AGM on 30 November 2011.
ABOUT THE PROJECT LOAN FACILITY
The facility will indicatively comprise an initial Project Loan Facility for A$11 million and a Gold Hedging Facility of 50,000 ounces in total.
The funding facility with Credit Suisse will provide the Company with significant benefits, including:
- fully fund Mutiny through to completion of the Deflector Definitive Feasibility Study;
- fund the final cash instalment due, of A$4 million, to enable movement to 100 per cent asset ownership of the Gullewa tenements (subject to a 10 per cent net profit royalty);
- provide shareholders with the bonus of minimising share dilution and therefore potentially maximising shareholder returns;
- offer a strong partnership with a leading global financial institution which is providing a financing and risk management solution, a global trading platform and a highly experienced Australian-based commodities team; and
- a de-risking hedge facility which helps protect Mutiny's emerging production cycle from price risk in the start-up phase.
