VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- North American Tungsten Corporation Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:NTC) ("NTC" or the "Company") announces the completion of an US$12.0 million loan (the "Queenwood II Loan") with Queenwood Capital Partners II LLC ("Queenwood II"), to replace its $12.0 million working capital loan facility (the "Working Capital Loan") with HSBC Bank Canada ("HSBC") which expired June 30, 2014.
The maturity date for the Queenwood II Loan is October 1, 2015 (the "Maturity Date"). Interest is payable on the Queenwood II Loan at the rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum, and such interest is payable by the Company quarterly in arrears on March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31 of each year, with any remaining accrued and unpaid interest payable on the Maturity Date. The Queenwood II Loan is secured by a charge over all of the assets of the Company pursuant to a general security agreement. Two directors of the Company, Ronald Erickson and Kurt Heikkila, collectively own all of the issued and outstanding units of Queenwood II.
On the basis that Queenwood II is considered an "insider" of the Company, the Queenwood II Loan may be considered a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). As a result, the following additional disclosure details are provided, following the listing of disclosure in section 5.2 of MI 61-101. The distribution of an information circular to shareholders, the preparation and distribution of a formal valuation and the seeking of shareholder approval for, and in connection with, the Queenwood II Loan is not necessary under MI 61-101, because:
1. for the purposes of Section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 the securities of the Company are only listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, and on that basis the Queenwood II Loan falls within an exemption from a formal valuation requirement of Section 5.4 of MI 61-101; and 2. for the purposes of Section 5.7(1)(f) of MI 61-101 the Queenwood II Loan is not convertible into securities of the Company or repayable as to principal or interest in securities of the Company, and on that basis the Queenwood II Loan falls within an exemption to the minority shareholder approval requirement of Section 5.6 of MI 61-101.
As the terms of the Queenwood II Loan were only recently finalized, the Company was not able to file a material change report 21 days prior to the closing of the Queenwood II Loan.
ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Kurt E. Heikkila, Chairman & CEO
