CALGARY, June 8, 2012 /CNW/ - CMQ Resources Inc. (TSXV: NV) ("CMQ") announced today that it has obtained the conditional approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") for, and has completed, the private placement previously announced on May 30, 2012 (the "Offering") of $2,500,000 principal amount of secured convertible debentures to Matco Investments Ltd. ("Matco"), CMQ's principal creditor and shareholder and a control person of CMQ.
The Offering resulted in the issuance of $2,500,000 principal amount of convertible debentures (the "Debentures") secured against all present and after acquired property of CMQ on similar terms to CMQ's existing secured indebtedness owing to Matco. The Debentures have a maturity date of June 8, 2014 and bear interest at a rate equal to 9% per annum. The accrued principal and interest amounts owing on the Debentures shall be convertible, at Matco's election, into common shares of CMQ at a price equal to $0.10 per common share. Matco was the only subscriber to the Offering. Matco and related persons currently hold 22,094,141 common shares of CMQ, representing 49.99% of CMQ's outstanding common shares and would hold 47,094,141 common shares of CMQ, representing 68% of CMQ's outstanding common shares if the full principal amount of the Debentures were to be converted. The Debentures are subject to a hold period under applicable securities laws which hold period expires on October 9, 2012.
In connection with completion of the Offering, and for no additional consideration, Matco has agreed to forbear from enforcing its rights and remedies against CMQ in respect of substantially all amounts CMQ was indebted to Matco until February 20, 2013.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used principally for working capital purposes and to proceed with CMQ's drilling program.
