NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION OR RELEASE, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, HONG KONG OR JAPAN OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE DISTRIBUTION OR RELEASE WOULD BE UNLAWFUL. OTHER RESTRICTIONS ARE APPLICABLE. PLEASE SEE THE IMPORTANT NOTICE AT THE END OF THIS PRESS RELEASE.

Northland Resources S.A. (OSLO:NAUR)(FRANKFURT:NPK)(OMX:NAURo) - (together with its subsidiaries "Northland", "NRSA" or the "Company") will today launch a USD 50-75 million super senior secured bridge bond offering to be issued by Northland Resources AB (publ.) as part of the ongoing refinancing process of the Company.
In a press release dated November 14, 2013, Northland announced that the board had decided to set a target for financial headroom, leading to a funding requirement of up to approximately USD 150 million.
The Company has now decided to propose an offering of super senior secured bonds (the "Bridge Bonds") by Northland Resources AB (publ.) ("NRAB"). The Bridge Bonds will firstly be offered on a pro rata basis to existing holders of the Company's outstanding First Lien Bonds, according to the allocation procedure set out in the Term Sheet for the contemplated issue. The lower amount of USD 50 million has been pre-committed by certain existing bondholders, guaranteeing a successful bond issue. The Bridge Bonds shall have a term of 6-12 months and accrue PIK interest at 11% per annum. For more information on the proposed terms and conditions, and an operational update, please refer to an investor presentation dated March 21 (the "Investor Presentation") that will be made available on Northland's website.
The Bridge Bonds constitute a short-term component of meeting Northland's funding requirement of up to approximately USD 150 million. The Company still aims to secure long-term funding for the entire required amount, and intends to present a long-term financing proposal later in 2014. The proceeds from the Bridge Bonds are expected to provide sufficient liquidity until long-term financing is in place.
As part of and subject to the contemplated long-term financing, certain bondholders in the First Lien Bond have committed to convert approximately USD 60 million of their First Lien holdings either to shares in NRSA, or a new unsecured fully subordinated bond. Such a bond would be issued by NRSA, have a tenor for three years, carry PIK interest only and be mandatorily convertible to equity with a strike price of 35% above the share price at the establishment of the new bond.
Also as part of and subject to the contemplated long-term financing, approximately USD 60-65 million of trade debt will be converted to shares in NRSA.
Northland has today called a bondholders' meeting to seek approval from its bondholders to issue the Bridge Bonds on the contemplated terms.
Arctic Securities ASA and Swedbank are acting as Joint Lead Managers and Bookrunners.
