VANCOUVER, British Columbia, October 27, 2022 – EGR Exploration Ltd. (TSX.V: EGR) (“EGR” or the “Company”) announces a debt reduction and settlement with its largest creditor and is also providing a corporate update.
EGR has entered into a debt settlement agreement (the “Agreement”) with its largest third-party creditor. The Agreement terms have been divided into three parts: a convertible note, a shares for debt issuance, and a cash payment. The convertible note having an aggregate principal amount of $150,000 is comprised of a two-year term, 0% interest and is convertible into common shares on the Company at a conversion price of $0.18 per common share in the first year, and at the greater of i) market price and ii) $0.10 if converted in the second year. The shares for debt issuance is for $50,000 of common shares in the capital of the Company which are to be issued the later of December 1, 2022, or five (5) business days from receipt of TSX Venture Exchange acceptance of the Agreement. The deemed value of the shares to be issued, and therefore the number of shares to be issued, is to be determined on the issuance date, and must not be less, per share, than the “discounted market price” (as such term is defined under the policies of the TSXV) of the shares on the date of such determination. The cash portion is for $100,000 which is payable from the proceeds of the next financing.
The debt settlement totals $300,000 which is also a reduction from the total amounts charged by the creditor. The transaction is subject to TSX Venture Exchange’s approval. All securities issued pursuant to the debt settlements will be subject to a four-months and one day statutory hold period. The debt settlement will not create a new control person.
Daniel Rodriguez CEO & Director commented, “This debt settlement is an important milestone for our Company and shareholders. We have cleaned up the balance sheet and settled the debt in favourable terms for both parties involved and appreciate the engagement and support from the creditor who will be an important shareholder going forward. Dividing the debt into three parts gives EGR flexibility and structure in how we repay the debt while reducing dilution. We can now turn our focus to building our team and getting back to exploring.”
During the Company’s audit of financial statements and review of invoices, EGR uncovered and submitted multiple tax refunds totalling just over $120,000 which has now been received. These funds have been applied to the Company’s working capital deficit to reduce amounts payable.
