Q3 2016 FINANCIAL AND OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS
- The Company has closed on a $3 Million loan with various third party lenders. The loan will bear interest at 8%, paid semi‐annually and has a maturity of 3 years with the Company having the ability to repay the loan after one year at its option. As part of the loan, the Company has issued non‐transferable warrants in the amount of 800 per $1,000 face value (for a total of 2,400,000 warrants), with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $1.25 per share for a term of 3 years expiring on September 28, 2019. Additionally, following the expiry of the regulatory hold period, should the closing price of Arianne’s common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange be equal to or higher than $2 for 10 consecutive days, the Company shall have the right to force the exercise of the warrants by providing the warrant holders with a 30‐day notice period, following which the warrants will automatically expire.
- The Company has exercised options held on land at Sainte‐Rose‐du‐Nord. The land is projected to be the future site of the port and is required for the development of the maritime terminal as well as the access roads and supporting infrastructure. It is from this site that Arianne will be shipping its high purity phosphate concentrate to customers around the world.
