HUDSON SIGNS MANDATE LETTER WITH THE EUROPEAN INVESTMENT BANK REGARDING DEBT FINANCING OF THE WHITE MOUNTAIN PROJECT
Vancouver, BC – HUDSON RESOURCES INC. (the “Company”) – (TSX Venture Exchange “HUD”; OTCQX “HUDRF”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with the European Investment Bank (“EIB”) to appraise Hudson’s White Mountain Anorthosite Project in Greenland. The EIB is the largest multilateral lender in the European Union (EU).
Hudsons’ 100% owned Greenland subsidiary, Hudson Greenland A/S, and the EIB have executed a mandate letter setting out the terms for the project appraisal and indicative financing terms. The status of the loan can be found at http://www.eib.org/projects/pipeline/2016/20160116. The EIB is considering offering Hudson a loan of up to 14M Euros, not exceeding 50% of the project costs. In total, project capital costs, including working capital, are not expected to exceed CDN$40M, equivalent to 27M Euros. Specific terms and conditions of the loan are confidential at this time. The potential financing being considered is still subject to a number of institutional approvals following appraisal as well as contract negotiations.
James Tuer, Hudson’s President, stated, “We are very pleased that the European Investment Bank is prepared to invest in our project and recognizes its long term positive impacts for Greenland. Their involvement represents a significant vote of confidence in our plan to build and operate the mine in Greenland for the purpose of supplying the fiberglass, paints and polymer industries. For current and potential new shareholders of Hudson, this represents an important step in completing the project financing while limiting shareholder dilution.”
Hudson is in advanced discussions with a number of groups with regard to the remaining portion of the financing and will provide updates as they become available.
