This release is by way of update to our earlier releases of 14th March 2017 ? confirming that all
approvals had been obtained to accelerate the second drawdown under the extended Noble Facility
Agreement ? and of 31st May 2017 ? advising that a proposed all party meeting of Lenders had
been postponed to 14th June 2017.
Noble Facility Agreement
Payment of the second draw down under the facility in the sum of US$2,747,131 was received on
8th June 2017.
All Party Meeting
The meeting of lenders, including senior representatives and their advisers, was held in
Johannesburg on 14th June. Senior representatives from all the consortium of Lenders were in
The purpose of the meeting was to review all material EPC and logistics contracts and to address
matters outstanding from the lenders? legal due diligence. At the conclusion of the meeting, a small
number of items were identified to be addressed or produced including updating the financial model,
term sheet and finalisation of the funding terms of the rail link before the lenders are able to
commence their respective credit approval processes. We believe all outstanding items will be
delivered to the lenders no later than 31st July; and this should allow lenders to approach their credit
approval bodies thereafter.
Most the outstanding items are either under the Company?s direct control or very likely to be
delivered to the Company by third parties by end June or during July.
The meeting was positive and the Company is encouraged by the support for the project shown by
the lenders. The credit approval processes are estimated to be completed within approximately two
months from commencement.
