VANCOUVER, B.C., June 25, 2013 – Huldra Silver Inc. (“Huldra” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce it has closed the first tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement and an agreement in principle to extend its debt facility with Waterton Global Value Fund, L.P.
The Company has closed aggregate subscriptions of $1,433,650, consisting of 3,822,200 units (each, a “Unit“) at a price of $0.25 per Unit and 1,593,668 flow-through units (each, a “FT Unit“) at a price of $0.30 per FT Unit Each Unit consisted of one common share and one share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.35 per share for a period of three years. Each FT Unit consisted of one common share issued on a “flow-through” basis and one share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.40 per share for a period of three years.
The Company also wishes to announce that it has come to an agreement in principle with Waterton Global Value Fund, L.P. to eliminate all monthly payment obligations and delay the payment of all obligations under the Credit Facility until October 31, 2013. The Company will be required to pay a lump sum of $7,241,210 on October 31, 2013. The Company has agreed to issue an additional 2.55 million warrants at market price and can repurchase such warrants on terms to be agreed upon. The agreement is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the preparation of definitive agreements.
As stated in the Company’s filings for its quarter ended March 31, 2013, the Company continues to have a working capital deficiency. These factors represent a material uncertainty that may cast a significant doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company emphasizes that, given currently depressed silver prices, it will be required to complete its previously announced financing of up to $5 million in order to continue its operations in the normal course and may require additional debt or equity in the future.
Huldra Silver is a fully integrated silver mining, exploration and development Company. The Company is currently mining at its Treasure Mountain Project, located three hours east of Vancouver, B.C, utilizing its offsite mill for processing mill feed at the Company’s property outside of Merritt, B.C. The Company is also actively assessing other opportunities for acquisition and development.
