Tacora Resources Inc. Announces Closing of Senior Secured Notes Offering


MONTRÉAL, May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Tacora Resources Inc. (“Tacora” or the “Company”) today announced that it has successfully completed a $175 million aggregate principal amount of 8.250% senior secured notes due 2026 (the “Notes). The Notes will pay interest semi-annually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year beginning on November 15, 2021, and will mature on May 15, 2026, unless earlier redeemed or repurchased. 

The net proceeds from the Notes, after payment of related costs and expenses, will be used to refinance the Company’s senior secured debt and the remainder will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes. 

“Our refinancing strategy has been to reduce our borrowing costs, assure adequate liquidity and provide financial flexibility for the business,” stated Joe Broking, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “The new structure will provide Tacora with the capital necessary for continued investment and the flexibility to consider sustainable growth.” 

“The completion of this financing initiative puts the Company and our dedicated employees in a wonderful position where we can be more agile in deploying capital towards reaching name plate production at the Scully Mine and responsibly growing the business.  Improving the balance sheet was the first step in achieving our strategic objectives which also include productivity improvement and growth options at the Scully Mine along with the development and restart of the Sydvaranger Mine,” concluded Thierry Martel, President and Chief Executive Officer. 

Jefferies LLC acted as sole book-running manager and Clarksons Platou Securities AS acted as joint lead manager for the offering.
