Aldridge Reports Q2 2014 Financial Results and Provides a Corporate Update

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Aldridge Minerals Inc. (TSX Venture:AGM) (“Aldridge” or the “Company”) announced today the filing of its unaudited consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ending June 30, 2014 (the “Q2 2014 Financials”), and the Management's Discussion & Analysis related thereto (the “Q2 2014 MD&A”), which are available on SEDAR and at www.aldridgeminerals.ca.

US$45 Million Interim Financing (the “Interim Financing”)

  • The Q2 2014 MD&A provides an overview of the US$45 million Interim Financing that was announced on August 29, 2014. The Interim Financing consists of the following components:
    • US$10 Million Equity Private Placement (the “Private Placement”):The Company executed definitive agreements with Orion Fund JV Limited, an affiliate of the Orion Mine Finance funds, (“Orion”), in connection with a US$10 million equity private placement which includes participation by the Company’s two largest shareholders.
    • US$35 Million Secured Bridge Loan Facility (the “Loan”): The Loan significantly strengthens Aldridge’s balance sheet and provides financial flexibility to complete the Company’s key corporate growth objectives. Together with the net proceeds of the Private Placement, the Loan will be used to fund the Yenipazar land acquisition, advance basic and detailed engineering and for general working capital purposes through to project financing.
    • Lead Concentrate and Gold Offtake Agreements (the “Offtakes”):Aldridge also entered into the Offtakes with an Orion affiliate. The Offtakes underscore Orion’s confidence in the Yenipazar Project and will assist Aldridge in demonstrating bankable revenue streams to prospective project lenders.

Cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2014 totaled $2,673,571

  • The Company continued to prudently manage its cash by deferring certain operating and project development activities. Upon closing of the Interim Financing, expenditures will be managed to ensure achievement of land acquisition and project development objectives and to comply with use of proceeds commitments pursuant to the Loan.

Outlook

  • Land Acquisition: Subject to the successful closing of the Interim Financing, the Company will kick-off the next stage of its land acquisition process (“LAP”) at the Yenipazar Project. The Company anticipates a fair and orderly LAP that will comply with the Equator Principles III typically required by international banks and project finance organizations. The land acquisition process is expected to take up to twelve months, although there are inherent risks that could extend the process.
  • Project Development:Aside from the priority of advancing the Project through the acquisition of land, the Company intends to initiate detailed engineering. The scope of the engineering will be determined in Q3 2014. The owner’s team will also be expanded in 2014 and 2015 as necessary to advance the Yenipazar Project through its next stages of development.
  • Project Financing: Based on the Company’s 2014 achievements, including the August 2014 announcement of the Interim Financing, Aldridge is well positioned to advance its efforts to obtain project financing in 2015. Although the Company continues to be optimistic regarding funding, the amount and timing of obtaining new funds will be affected by the capital market conditions for junior mining companies, fluctuations in commodity prices, and potential changes to the political environment in Turkey.
  • Investment Incentive Certificate (“IIC”) preliminary application filed: In September 2013 the Company submitted a preliminary application for the IIC in order to qualify for tax incentives. The IIC application was updated based on the revised capital expenditure estimates of the Optimization Study. The incentive program allows for a government capital contribution to qualifying depreciable capital expenditures of either 40% for large-scale projects or 30% for regional projects. This contribution is funded by a corporate income tax rate reduction from 20% to 6%. The Company expects to receive the IIC based on the large-scale project incentive within the next two to three months. The impact of these incentives has been factored into the NI 43-101 compliant technical report that summarizes the Optimization Study.
