Geoff Hampson, Para’s CEO, states, “This Convertible Note replaces old notes and loans that had different terms and due dates and replaces them with a single long-term instrument that moves over $10 million of Current Liabilities to Long Term. This commitment by Insiders is an indication of confidence in both the ability of management to execute on the plan and the quality of the assets, to generate substantial cash flow, beyond the seven year mine life as described in the recently published PEA. In addition, the structure ensures that cash generated by the Company’s assets is directed to long term growth and the creation of increased shareholder value.”
Participation of an insider of the Company in the convertible note financing constitutes a related party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions). Because the Company’s shares trade only on the TSXV, the issuance of securities is exempt from the formal valuation requirements of Section 5.4 of MI 61-101 pursuant to Subsection 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 and exempt from the minority approval requirements of Section 5.6 of MI 61-101.
