One of the milestone conditions for the 21 MSEK bridge financing obtained by
Dannemora Magnetit AB requires that all rights and obligations under the
existing equipment lease facility made available to Dannemora Mineral AB should
have been transferred to Dannemora Magnetit AB by 20 January 2014 (subject to a
three day remedy period). Due to the circumstance that the lease bank refused to
give its approval to such transfer, this milestone condition was not satisfied
by the applicable date and, consequently, an event of default under the terms of
the bridge financing has occurred and is continuing.
The bondholders are currently considering granting approval to Dannemora
Magnetit AB to make further drawdowns under the bridge financing until further
notice, notwithstanding the event of default.
The liquidity position of the Dannemora group has improved above expectations
since announcement of the bridge financing. The future success of the business
is, however, dependent upon the arrangement of a long-term financing solution.
The work to explore possible long-term financing solutions continues.
