Tantalex Lithium Concludes with Glencore for Lithium Marketing and $US 5 Million Plus One Third of Capex in Financing

13.11.2023  |  The Newswire
Toronto, Nov. 13th, 2023 - Tantalex Lithium Resources Corp. (CSE:TTX) - (FSE:DW8) - (OTC:TTLXF) ("Tantalex" or the "Corporation"), is pleased to announce it has concluded a lithium marketing offtake agreement (the "Marketing Offtake Agreement") and convertible facilities agreement up to US$5,000,000 (the "Convertible Facilities Agreement") with Glencore AG ("Glencore") as previously announced on Tantalex's news release of September 8th, 2023.

The marketing offtake agreement (the "Marketing Offtake Agreement") is for 100% of the lithium to be produced from the company's Manono Lithium Tailings Project from the date of the start of commercial production throughout life of mine. Glencore shall have the sole responsibility for all sales and will contribute 1/3 one third of the total capital expenditure of the Manono Lithium Tailings Project, subject to:

  • Glencore's satisfactory review of the feasibility study in respect of the Manono Lithium Tailings Project to be completed within 60 days of receipt of final version of the Feasibility Study;

  • the Capex being fully funded by one or more financial institutions or equity raised by Tantalex; and

  • the drawdown schedule being discussed and mutually agreed by both Parties and the other lenders;

  • other customary conditions precedent.

Eric Allard, Tantalex Lithium CEO commented: "This is again a significant milestone for us as we pursue with our objective to de-risk the project and keep with our target of bringing our Manono Lithium Tailings Project into production. With our recent PEA which outlined a US$ 147M CAPEX for a 112,000 tpa SC6 production, this strategic support from Glencore will solidly complement our efforts to firm up the other 2/3rd of the capital expenditure costs."

Under the Convertible Facilities Agreement Glencore has agreed to make available to the Company (a) a convertible term loan facility in an amount up to US $2,000,000 ("Facility A") and (b) a convertible term loan facility in an amount up to US $3,000,000 ("Facility B") (Facility A and Facility B together being the "Facilities").

Facility A is made available at the Closing Date. Facility B is made available subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent. The Company has indicated to Glencore that the Company intends to satisfy such conditions precedent promptly. The Facilities shall terminate on December 1st, 2025 (the "Termination Date").

The Company has agreed to pay to Glencore a facility fee in an amount equal to 1.5 per cent of the aggregate amount of the Facilities as at the Closing Date.

The Facilities are convertible at Glencore's option. At any time during the Conversion Period (defined below), Glencore has the option to subscribe for common shares in the capital of the Company ("Common Shares") at the relevant conversion price. The conversion price for the Facilities is equal to the higher of (a) the closing price of the Common Shares published by Bloomberg for the scheduled trading day immediately prior to the Closing Date and (b) the 20-day volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares published by Bloomberg for the 20 scheduled trading days immediately after the Closing Date less a 25 per cent. discount, in each case converted into US$ (the "Conversion Price").

The Convertible Facilities Agreement provides for a conversion period that starts on the date that is four months and a day after the day on which the outstanding principal amount being converted was advanced by the Lender and ends at 5:30 pm (London time) on the business day before the Termination Date ("Conversion Period").

At any time during the Conversion Period, Glencore has the option (in its absolute discretion) to convert specified amounts from the amounts that the Company has borrowed and which remain outstanding at that time under the Convertible Facilities Agreement ("Conversion Amounts") into Common Shares ("Conversion Shares"). Conversion Amounts owing shall be converted into Conversion Shares (the "Conversion Number of Conversion Shares") by dividing the applicable Conversion Amount by the Conversion Price. The issue of the Conversion Number of Conversion Shares to Glencore in accordance with the Convertible Facilities Agreement shall fully repay the applicable correlated Conversion Amount that was outstanding under the Convertible Facilities Agreement and completely discharges the obligations of the Company to repay that applicable Conversion Amount.

Glencore is not entitled at any particular time to receive a Conversion Number of Conversion Shares such that Glencore would hold, immediately post conversion, more than 20% of the Common Shares (including any Common Shares held by Glencore prior to such conversion) (the "Cap"). Glencore did not hold any Common Shares prior to entering into the Convertible Facilities Agreement.

Each loan bears interest at rate equal to 3 month CME Term SOFR plus a margin.

The Convertible Facilities Agreement contains events of default, representations and warranties, covenants, provisions relating to security and indemnities that are customary for similar transactions.
