Maudore Announces Update Regarding its Consensual Restructuring and the Termination of its Rights Offering

MONTREAL, Jan. 10, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Maudore Minerals Ltd. (MAO: TSX-Venture; MAOMF: US OTC; M6L: Frankfurt Exchange) announces that it will no longer proceed with the rights offering that it initiated on December 20, 2013 and that was scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m. (Montreal time) on January 10, 2014 (the "Rights Offering").

On January 8, 2014, Maudore finalized its revised 2014 mining operations plan and financial forecast (the "2014 Budget") which showed materially lower free cash flow for 2014 than originally anticipated primarily due to: (i) lower gold price assumptions, (ii) increased working capital requirements related to the restart of the Sleeping Giant mine and (iii) the shift of certain production from 2014 to 2015.  The majority of the reduced cash flow for 2014 represents production timing issues and not a lower life-of-mine production forecast.  As a result of the reprofiling of cash flows in the 2014 Budget, the ability of the Company to meet its contractual repayment obligations agreed to under the consensual restructuring proposal entered into with its major creditors (the "Consensual Restructuring") has become challenging.

In light of the foregoing, Maudore has entered into discussions with Cyrus Capital Partners ("Cyrus"), in its capacity as a manager to FBC Holdings S.à r.l ("FBC"), regarding certain changes to the covenants and maturity of the proposed $6,000,000 liquidity facility that FBC was to provide Maudore as part of the Consensual Restructuring.  Cyrus has advised Maudore that it will require more time to diligence the 2014 Budget to determine whether to amend the previous terms of its financial support of Maudore in order to accommodate the cash flow profile of the 2014 Budget. Cyrus may also require that the Company agree to certain other terms to protect its existing investment as part of its continued forbearance and support of the Company. The Company has not yet had discussions with its other secured and unsecured creditors about the 2014 Budget and its implications for the previously agreed terms of the Consensual Restructuring.

As a result of the required changes to the Consensual Restructuring and the uncertainties surrounding the ability to secure creditor approval of any changes, the Company has decided that it will no longer proceed with the Rights Offering and all funds held by the Transfer Agent will be returned to subscribers.

Maudore intends to continue assessing its strategic alternatives given its current financial situation.  Further announcements will be made by the Company in due course.
