VANCOUVER, Sept. 3, 2013 /CNW/ - Kyuquot Power Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, has entered into an amendment to the Credit Agreement with Canadian Western Bank as of July 31, 2013. The amendment primarily covered the further loan advance of about $321,000. As at July 31, 2013, the loan principal is now $700,000 and the interest rate is fixed for a three year term at 4.88% with a loan amortization period ending July 31, 2023.
During late July 2013 and August 2013, directors and an officer exercised 340,000 existing stock options which resulted in gross proceeds of $153,500 to the Company.
The cash balance of the Company, including the Barr Creek Limited Partnership, at August 31, 2013 was approximately $1.2 million. The proceeds from the additional lending and exercise of stock options will be used primarily to fund project developments as well as for general working capital purposes.
