CALGARY, Jan. 10, 2014 /CNW/ - TVI Pacific Inc. (TSX:TVI) (OTCQX:TVIPF) ("TVI" or the "Company") announced today that it has completed a further closing (the "Second Closing") of various investment and financing transactions involving Prime Resources Holdings, Inc. ("PRHI"), following satisfaction of certain conditions outlined in the definitive agreements executed by the Company, PRHI and others on December 11th, 2013.  Those conditions included receipt of approval from the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission for an increase in the authorized capital stock of TVI Resource Development Phils., Inc. ("TVIRD").  Additional information relating to the transactions with PRHI (the "Transactions") are set out in (i) the news releases disseminated by the Company on December 11, 2013 and December 13, 2013, (ii) the Company's December 20, 2013 material change report, and (iii) the December 11, 2013 investment agreement (the "Investment Agreement") entered into between the Company, PRHI and others (which represents the "umbrella" agreement between the Company and PRHI for the Transactions), all of which have been filed with various securities regulatory authorities in Canada and are available through SEDAR (under the Company's profile).

Highlights of the Second Close:

1. The release of all funds previously placed in escrow by PRHI, including:
    a. US $1.305 million, representing the balance of the subscription price for PRHI's investment in TVI International Marketing Limited ("TVIIM"), for which PRHI has received a second deferred non-voting share of TVIIM that is redeemable at par value; and
    b. US $11.35 million, representing the balance of the subscription price paid by PRHI to acquire newly issued voting shares of TVIRD.
2. A further US $4.3 million was advanced by PRHI (and placed into an escrow account), which represents the purchase price of voting shares in the capital of TVI Minerals Processing, Inc., a Philippine incorporated subsidiary of TVIIM.

At the first closing on December 13, 2013, PRHI invested US $1.545 million in TVIIM (through the purchase of one deferred non-voting share of TVIIM (redeemable at par value)) and US $2 million in TVI (through the purchase of 33,333,333 common shares of TVI at a price of US $0.06 per share).  In addition, PRHI advanced US $2 million as partial payment for its investment in TVIRD.

All funds advanced by PRHI (in connection with both closings) are expected to be used by TVI group entities for working capital purposes and to further advance various projects, as well as to undertake certain restructuring transactions affecting members of the TVI group of companies (including the repurchase of all the outstanding TVIRD Class A shares). The Transactions, as outlined in the Company's December 11, 2013 news release and described in the Investment Agreement, contemplate aggregate investments by PRHI of US $22.5 million.  After giving effect to the Transactions, PRHI holds approximately 5% of the total number of issued and outstanding common shares of the Company and 68.42% of the total number of outstanding voting shares of TVIRD.

The Transactions are expected to provide US $10.650 million to TVI and US $11.850 million to TVIRD and various subsidiaries, each before tax and related fees, while a net US $350,000 is expected to be used to repurchase all of the outstanding TVIRD Class A shares.

After giving effect to the Transactions, TVI continues to indirectly hold 30.66% of the issued and outstanding shares of TVIRD (through TVIIM).  (TVIRD remains the operator of the Agata and Pan de Azucar joint ventures.)  As well, the Company continues to directly hold (i) its investment in shares of Mindoro Resources Ltd.; (ii) its investment in shares of Foyson Resources Limited; (iii) its earning right in the Amazon Bay project (Papua New Guinea); and (iv) its investment in shares of TG World Energy Corp.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
