Divests the shareholding in NIO, receives 4.5 MSEK; retains convertibles of 7.1 MSEK
Copperstone Resources AB (“Copperstone” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has divested its last shares of Nordic Iron Ore (“NIO”), except for an insignificant part, proceeds amounting to 4.5 MSEK net to Copperstone. Copperstone, one of the founders of NIO, will retain its convertible of 7.1 MSEK + annual interest of 5.5% June 2018 – June 2020. The first drilling campaign of Viscaria in Kiruna is getting closer and the Company now also has funds to some extent continuing the development of the Copperstone project in Arvidsjaur.
”Copperstone is mobilizing towards its first drill campaign in Kiruna, while keeping the convertible debenture in NIO, which in a best-case scenario could add considerable value to Copperstone in a few years time should NIO develop successfully. Overall, subject to a positive outcome of our rights issue, and conversions of certain debt to equity, the current net debt position of some SEK 40m by July could have become single digit; when consolidation is completed, the project developments are good to go again.”, comments CEO Michael Mattsson.
