· Equity was SEK 478.0 million (SEK 489.7 million 31 December 2016) at the end of the period.
· On 9 January 2017, the Board of Directors of Nordic Mines cancelled the extraordinary general meeting, as they decided to take the necessary steps to carry out a rights issue of common shares to the Company's shareholders of approximately USD 5.0 million, subject to shareholders' approval.
· On 18 January, Nordic Mines appointed the investment bank, Evli Bank plc to lead a rights issue on behalf of the Company.
· On 18 January, the Company announced the resignation from the Board of Directors of Mr Pranay Panda with immediate effect.

· On 15 March, the Company announced that it had resolved to undertake a rights issue for SEK 51 million at a subscription price of SEK 0.27 per share and to issue shares to Lau Su Holdings AB and Lao Tzu Investments AB on the same terms to offset their outstanding shareholder loans.

· On 10 April, Nordic Mines announced that it had signed a heads of agreement with the Canadian company Firesteel Resources Inc (TSXV: "FTR") whereby FTR will acquire a majority stake in the Laiva project by a combination of newly issued shares in Nordic Marknad AB ("NMM"), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, or buying shares in NMM from the Company. Under the terms of the transaction FTR will acquire 60% of NMM in two stages and fund the project back into production.

· On 2 May, FTR lent the Company EUR 200,000 as an advance against the EUR 1.0 million which would have been used to allow Firesteel to acquire 10% of Nordic Mines Marknad AB
· On 8 May the shares of the Company were suspended from trading on the Nasdaq Stockholm Stock Exchange after it came to light that certain price sensitive information regarding the Company had appeared on the internet. Following publication of a market update from Nordic Mines on 9 May the shares resumed trading. 
· On 11 May Nordic Mines received written confirmation from the authorities in Finland that it will be allowed to treat ore and concentrates from third parties for up to 18% of the feed capacity of the high grade leaching circuit in the processing plant. This will allow up to 2% of total leaching capacity in the processing plant to be used for third party ore and concentrates subject to case by case approvals 
· Also on 11 May, the Company received an offer from Lau Su Holding AB, the Company's largest shareholder, to underwrite a SEK 69.1 million rights issue.

2017-05-15 Nordic Mines receives an offer to underwrite a rights issue

Nordic Mines receives an offer to underwrite a rights issue

On 11 May 2017, Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or the "Company") received an offer from Lau Su Holding AB ("Lau Su"), the Company's largest shareholder, which holds 21.7% of the ordinary shares of Nordic Mines, to underwrite a rights issue to support the Company. The proposal is intended to replace the transaction with Firesteel Resources Inc ("Firesteel").

The key terms of Lau Su's proposal are:

  • SEK 69.1 million rights issue
  • Price set at 0.285SEK per share
  • USD 3.0 million of new investment by Lau Su
  • Conversion of USD 1.2 million of loans previously provided by Lau Su, plus interest at the rights issue price
  • USD1.0 million to be made available immediately by way of a short term loan to bridge the funding requirements of Nordic Mines
  • Lau Su to lead a debt consortium to provide a minimum of US$6m of debt financing secured against the Company's assets and the exclusive rights to the Company's gold production for 5 years
  • Lau Su to take control of the Company by way of having three out of four of the directors of the Company following the rights issue

The board of directors of Nordic Mines has responded to Lau Su regarding some of the terms of its proposal and will evaluate the proposal and any adjustments thereto on its merits. 

Nordic Mines has appointed financial advisers to assist the directors to evaluate the proposal and compare it to the proposed transaction with Firesteel, as announced on 10 April 2017 and updated on 9 May 2017.  The board of directors will make a recommendation to shareholders in due course.  In the meantime the Company continues to work to advance the transaction with Firesteel

20170515 NOMI Press Release

2017-05-11 Nordic Mines AB: Approval to process third party ores

Approval to process third party ores

On the 9th of May, 2017 after the release of the Market Update, the company received written confirmation that it will be allowed to treat ore and concentrates from third parties for up to 18% of the feed capacity of the processing plant's high grade circuit (a small portion of the capacity of the leaching circuit). This is subject to ensuring that the composition of the waste and discharge from the operations is not changed in any material way from that of the Laiva ore discharge. Furthermore, this approval is conditional on Nordic Mines submitting an analysis of ore and concentrates to be treated for approval at least four months prior to the planned processing of such ore and concentrates.

The permit is subject to a 30 day period where complaints may be made.

This confirms the Company's view that handling of all external materials would need to be applied with sufficient data, assays, leach tests, etc and would constitute a significant reporting burden for the Company. The environmental authorities may set new monitoring parameters depending on the quality of the external material.

Further, the Company would again note that

  1. There are few potential sources of material within a short enough distance from Laiva which would mean that third party material could be economically toll treated at the plant at Laiva;
  2. Nordic Mines currently has no offers of a supply of material to the plant; and,
  3. The plant cannot be operated economically with only a supply of third party material equating to 18% of the feed capacity of the processing plant's high grade circuit so would remain reliant on ore from the Laiva mine.

20170510 Nordic Mines - Press Release Shareholder Meeting

2017-05-09 Nordic Mines AB: Nordic Mines Market Update

Nordic Mines Market Update

On the weekend of Saturday 6 May and Sunday 7 May 2017 it came to the attention of Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or the "Company") that certain confidential and price sensitive information had reached the public domain without the knowledge of the Company and was circulating on the Internet.  The Company duly informed the Nasdaq Stockholm Stock Exchange ("Nasdaq") before Nasdaq opened on 8 May 2017 and a trading halt was placed on the Company's shares.

With respect to the confidential information circulating on the Internet, Nordic Mines wishes to clarify the following:

  • On 4 May 2017, the Company received an email purporting to make a "counter offer" to the transaction with Firesteel Resources Inc. ("Firesteel") from Nordic Mines' largest shareholder, Lau Su Holding AB.  The offer was to underwrite a percentage of a new rights issue. The Lau Su's "counter offer" was not in a form which could be considered by the board of directors of the Company, principally because it lacked the reasonable detail that would be required by the Board to make a decision, in addition the Company asked Lau Su to clarify its sources of funding in the "counter offer" and to provide sufficient detail in the context of the Company and its future. The Company suggested that Lau Su remake the offer through a bona fide market counter part. The original "counter offer" which was made by email was then quickly withdrawn by Lau Su Holding AB.
     
  • Lau Su Holding AB has indicated that they intend to make a new, formal proposal this week. Should such an offer be received and be in a form which can be considered by the directors of Nordic Mines, it will be communicated to the market.
     
  • In late April 2017, Nordic Mines had a meeting with the environmental authorities in Finland about an application for permitting relating to toll treating third party material. This was an informal meeting without a formal outcome. The non-binding indication provided at the meeting was that the authorities may permit that 18% of the material fed into the process plant at Laiva could be supplied from third party sources.
     
  • Handling of all external materials would need to be applied with sufficient data, assays, leach tests, etc and would constitute a significant reporting burden for the Company. The environmental authorities may set new monitoring parameters depending on the quality of the external material. In addition, a new water cleaning system will be required to process external material.
     
  • Further, the Company would note that
     
    1. There are few potential sources of material within a short enough distance from Laiva which would mean that third party material could be economically toll treated at the plant at Laiva;
    2. Nordic Mines currently has no offers of a supply of material to the plant; and,
    3. The plant cannot be operated economically with only a supply of third party material equating to 18% of the plant's capacity so would remain reliant on ore from the Laiva mine.
       
  • Ore sorting: the Company believes that the use of laser ore sorting could make a material difference to the economics of the Laiva operation. The Company has disclosed all of the results received from the tests to-date.  More work is needed to determine whether to incorporate ore sorting into the Laiva flow sheet. Until such time as this work is done the Company can not conclusively state that ore sorting works.
     
  • The disclosed transaction with Firesteel has been approved by the directors of the Company, pending certain conditions precedent, as announced on 10 April 2017. The initial part of the transaction with Firesteel (where Firesteel will buy 10% of Nordic Mines Marknad for the sum of €1 million) is conditional upon the following "conditions precedent" :-
     
    • That the shareholders comprising the Lau Su group of shareholders support the FTR transaction by signing a voting support agreement. That Lau Su group sign a Standstill agreement in the context of its loans to the Company and agree to have its loans are repaid by Firesteel either in shares or cash at Firesteel's option.
    • That the Company allows the Firesteel Management, management control of the management of the Laiva mine pursuant to the terms of a management agreement the continuation of which is conditional upon the next C$20 million being invested into Nordic Mines Marknad.
    • That the Company would grant Firesteel and option in order to buy an additional 50% of Nordic Mines Marknad, subject to Firesteel investing a further C$20 million and pursuant to the terms of a shareholders agreement to be signed by the Company and an EGM, where the shareholders will be given the opportunity to vote on the Firesteel proposal.

         

  • The Company can confirm that pursuant to the announcement on the 10th of April 2017, that it is making good progress on the documentation and that the initial transaction is now pending the signature of the Lau Su group of shareholders all of whom have indicated with the exception of Lau Su itself that they will support the Firesteel Transaction, however and whilst Firesteel is yet to receive the signed voting support agreements as set out herein. Firesteel, as agreed with the Company, on 2 May 2017 sent the first installment of EUR 200,000 which is part of the EUR 1.0 million which will allow Firesteel to acquire 10% of Nordic Mines Marknad AB. Firesteel published a press release on May 3, 2017 stating that it has completed the first installment of EUR 200,000.
     
  • The Company has received many questions from shareholders seeking to clarify the Firesteel Transaction and it has posted a detailed Q&A on its website which further elaborates on the transaction with Firesteel.
     
  • The Company will give shareholders on record the opportunity to meet with  Board members and the Management, in addition to the CEO of Firesteel on Tuesday 16 May 2017 at a venue which it will confirm in the next 24 hours. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the prospects for the Company and the Laiva Mine. If by then the Company has received Lau Su's "counter offer" then the Company will be happy to discuss the merits of each proposal with shareholders at the same forum.

The Company's cash position is constrained and the Company is in need of funding, to keep afloat. The Company has looked at numerous different options, but currently the only proposal it has is that of Firesteel. If other offers are made, the Board of the Company will off course evaluate them and propose the best solution for all shareholders.

The board of directors shall be authorised to execute the transfer.

Item 10 ­- Resolution to decrease the Company's share capital

The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to decrease the Company's share capital by maximum SEK 83,343,720.78. The reduction shall be effected without cancellation of shares and the reduction amount shall be allocated as non-restricted equity. The reduction is made in order to facilitate subscription for new shares in the Company by the use of the warrants that are proposed to be issued under items 7 and 8. Apart from the reduction of share capital, the Company's restricted equity will not be affected.

This corresponds to 22.0 percent and 4.7 percent respectively of the Rights issue, if fully subscribed. The existing shareholder and short term loans of USD 1,450,000 in total, including accrued interest, accumulate to 26.7 percent, of the Rights issue, if fully subscribed.

The Board of Directors also intends to propose the extraordinary general meeting to approve the Board of Directors' resolution on 15 March 2017 on a directed new issue to Lao Tzu Investments AB, a company controlled by the Company's Chairman, Vinod Sethi, which company is not a shareholder in the Company, but hasprovided the Company with a short term loan of USD 250,000 (the "Short Term Loan"). The Short Term Loan provided by Lao Tzu Investments AB, together with accrued interest until 16 May 2017, amounts to SEK 2,398,248.94 calculated with the exchange rate 9.03 SEK / 1.00 USD as per 28 February 2017 The Board of Directors has resolved on the directed new issue to allow Lao Tzu Investments AB to set-off the Short Term Loan against shares in the Company to the Subscription Price, in accordance with the terms of the Short Term Loan.

The maximum size of the directed new issue is set to 8,882,403 shares and 8,882,403 warrants.

However, the directed new issue will be conditional upon that the Rights Issue being fully subscribed. Hence, the Board of Directors will in first hand allocate Lao Tzu Investments AB Units in the Rights Issue, and only allocate Lao Tzu Investments AB Units in the directed new issue if Lao Tzu Investments AB has not been able to set-off the Short Term Loan through subscription of Units in the Rights Issue.

Background and reasons for the Rights issue

Further development of Laiva and general corporate purposes. Detailed information will follow this announcement shortly.

Terms and conditions of the Rights issue

On the record date for the Rights issue, shareholders in the Company will for each share held in the Company receive one (1) Unit right. Three (3) Unit rights entitle to subscription of one (1) Unit, consisting of one (1) share and one (1) warrant. The subscription price is SEK 0.27 per Unit (corresponding to 0.27 SEK for each new share). The warrants are issued without consideration. The warrant gives the right to, during 2 April 2018 - 30 April 2018, subscribe for one (1) share at the lowest of the shares' quota value at the time the warrant is utilized and 0.27 SEK.

The Rights issue comprises in total a maximum of 188,574,252 shares and 188,574,252 warrants. The subscription period will be between 2 - 16 May 2017, or such later date as resolved by the Board of Directors of the Company. The prospectus for the Rights issue is estimated to be made public on 28 April 2017.

If the Rights issue is fully subscribed, the number of shares in Nordic Mines will increase by 188,574,252 to 754,297,008 shares in total and the share capital will increase by SEK 50,915,048.04. In addition there will be 188,574,252 warrants issued. Shareholders choosing not to participate in the Rights issue will have their respective holdings diluted by 25.0 percent, upon full subscription of the Rights issue, but will have a possibility to be economically compensated for the dilution effect by selling their respective Unit rights.

The Board of Directors will further propose the extraordinary general meeting to reduce the Company's share capital with maximum SEK 96,961,993.74 to SEK 152,745,144.12, without cancellation of shares.

The Board will also propose the extraordinary general meeting to resolve upon a bonus issue of maximum SEK 83,343,720.78, to enable to transfer additional funds to the share capital, without the issuance of new shares, with the effect that the share capital would be fully restored.

The Board of Directors will further propose the extraordinary general meeting to resolve on an adjustment of the Company's articles of association lowering limits of the share capital from SEK 200,000,000 - SEK 800,000,000 to SEK 100,000,000 - SEK 400,000,000, and amending the limits of the number of shares from 200,000,000 - 800,000,000 to 400,000,000 - 1,600,000,000.

In addition, the Board of Directors intends to propose the extraordinary general meeting to reduce the Company's share capital so that the quota value of the Company's share becomes SEK 0.27. However, such reduction of the share capital requires permission from the Swedish Companies Registration Office or the Swedish district court. 

The total Rights issue proceeds amount to a maximum of approximately MSEK 51 at full subscription before issue expenses.

Upon full utilization of the warrants in April 2018, Nordic Mines will raise not more than approximately MSEK 51 before issue expenses, the number of shares will increase with 188,574,252 and the share capital by SEK 50,915,048.04, assuming a quota value of no more than 0.27 SEK.

If the directed new issue to Lao Tzu Investments AB is fully subscribed, the number of shares in Nordic Mines will increase by 8,882,403 to 763,179,411 shares in total. The number of warrants, if the directed new issue is fully subscribed, increases by 8,882,403 to 197,456,655. However, as stated above, the directed new issue will be conditional upon the Rights issue being fully subscribed. Hence, the Board of Directors will in first hand allocate Lao Tzu Investments AB Units in the Rights issue, and only allocate Lao Tzu Investments AB Units in the directed new issue if Lao Tzu Investments AB has not been able to set-off the Short Term Loan through subscription of Units in the Rights issue.

Additional information

The Rights issue and the directed new issue are subject to the approval by the extraordinary general meeting in Nordic Mines. An extraordinary general meeting will be held on 18 April 2017, at 14:00 CET, at Visma Services AB, Lindhagensgatan 94 in Stockholm, Sweden.

2017-03-01 Nordic Mines AB: Republishing of the Year-End Report 2016 with editorial changes

Republishing of the Year-End Report 2016

Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or the "Company") wishes through this press release announce that the company's year-end report for 2016 is being republished with editorial changes.

The tables on pages 11, 13 and 20 have been completed and an additional comment has been added on page 20.

Year-End Report 2016

                     

Fourth quarter of 2016

  • Revenues were SEK 0.0 million (SEK 0.0 million Q4 2015) as the Laiva Mine is on care and maintenance and not in production.
  • The Company reported an operating loss of SEK -12.3 million (SEK -25.0 million Q4 2015).
  • Loss after tax for the period amounted to SEK -12.5 million (SEK 76.1 million Q4 2015), corresponding to SEK -0.02 (SEK 0.36) per share.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were SEK 2.8 million (SEK 3.5 million 30 September 2016) at the end of the period. Thus, the Company currently does not have sufficient funds to cover its needs for the next three months starting from the date of this report.
  • Equity was SEK 489.7 million (SEK 501.9 million 30 September 2016) at the end of the period.
  • Secured shareholder loans of SEK 4.5 million to fund the running costs of the Company.
  • On 19 October, the Company appointed Mr.Ola Wahlquist, ex Audit Partner of the Year 2015, Ernst & Young as a Senior Advisor. Mr Wahlquist is a subject matter expert in Risk Management, Compliance and Audit related issues.
  • On 25 October, Nordic Mines announced the appointment of Mr Tony Butler as CFO and Mr Rune Nordström, as its Head of Corporate Communications and Investor Relations.
  • On 27 October, Nordic Mines appointed Ludmilla Lundberg as Senior Advisor, Compliance & Reporting. Ludmilla comes with 20 years of experience in compliance and reporting
  • On 30 November, the Company announced a shareholder loan with Lau Su Holding AB and announced the Company's intention to hold an Extraordinary General Meeting to seek shareholder approval to amend the articles of association in order to create a new preferential class of shares and to approve a placement of USD1.5 million in a combination of preferential and ordinary shares to Lau Su Holding AB. On 9 January the Board of Directors resolved to cancel the Extraordinary General Meeting and the proposed financing in favour of pursuing alternative fundraising, on which see below.
  • On 21 December, the Company received assay results from the first batches of the Bjorkdal sorting test sample carried out in September. It is evident that optical sorting systems have the potential to transform the economics at the Laiva mine.  Whilst the forecast upgrades to 1.33 g/t were close to our best expectation, it is clear that further threshold optimization work needs to be carried out

Full Year 2016

  • Revenues were SEK 0.0 million (SEK 0.0 million 2015) due to the production stop at the Laiva mine.
  • The Company reported an operating loss of SEK -37.2 million (SEK -92.3 million 2015).

CEO's Statement

During the fourth quarter, Nordic Mines continued to make progress at the Laiva Project.

The primary Management focus over the past 2 quarters has been twofold. The first has been to explore ways to reduce the mining and processing of waste material, crucial in low grade gold deposits such as Laiva. The second is to plan a drill programme which will a) allow for the mining of wider sections than previously and b) to step out to expand the resource, develop new pits and reduce the strip ratio in the early production years.

Drilling will allow Management to establish the grade of the potentially immediately mineable resource and upgrade an element of the existing resource to mineable. It will also allow for accurate management of bench height and dip together with the associated strip.

Management conducted a lengthy laser optical sorting programme over two years culminating in a large sorting test at Mandalay's Bjorkdal Mine in Sweden in August 2016.  Optical sorting, in various forms, has been widely used in mining since the 1990's. Sorting is essentially a secondary strip.  We consider the results at Bjorkdal very successful: back calculated grades reporting to the mill have been upgraded by 45%. These results confirm that optical sorting of our quartz diorite and volcanic ores is likely to form an influential element of our plan to return the Laiva deposit to long term profitable production once funded.

The Laiva deposit strike length has been traced for over 8 kms. It is a relatively unexplored deposit to date and management is confident that there is potential to increase mineable resources significantly along strike and at depth; an opinion based on known mineralised and drilled outcrops and drill hole data from the historic 79,000 meters 499 hole drill programmes.

Funding
The Board of Directors of Nordic Mines is examining various strategic options available in order to create shareholder value and expedite taking the Laiva Mine back into production. We anticipate that some of these options will crystallize over the next month or two. The Board will announce the preferred way forward, as soon as possible.  The options range from dual listing in a second major stock market, partnering with prominent gold investors, an outright sale, executing a rights issue or a combination. Due diligence is being undertaken on some of these potential options. 

In the meantime, Lau Su Holdings AB ("Lau Su") intends to make a further shareholder loan to the Company of USD 0.5 million as a bridge to a larger financing.  Subject to terms and board approval, Lau Su has also indicated that it is prepared to underwrite a percentage of a proposed rights issue.  All of Lau Su's outstanding shareholder loans would be expected to convert into ordinary shares in the Company on the same terms as the rights issue. Nordic Mines hopes to make an announcement to the market shortly in this regard.

Results, fourth quarter 2016

Net sales were SEK 0.0 million (SEK 0.0 million) during the fourth quarter of 2016 and year to date as the Laiva mine remains on care and maintenance and is not in production.

Production costs amounted to SEK -3.8 million (SEK -2.7 million Q4 2015) during the last quarter of 2016. Even though there has not been any production during the quarter, the Company has maintained some of the organisation around the Laiva mine, for example for maintenance work and environmental supervision. The mine and the plant also have a number of fixed costs, for example balancing the water levels in the mining area, which remain even though the mine is not in production. Depreciation, amortisation and impairment losses for the fourth quarter of 2016 were SEK -3.5 million (SEK -5.8 million Q4 2015).

Sales and administration costs amounted to SEK -4.6 million (SEK -11.1 million Q4 2015).

The Company reported an operating result of SEK -12.3 million (SEK -25.0 Q4 2015).

Net financial items were SEK -0.2 million (SEK 101.0 million, primarily accumulated interest). The Company's income tax for the period has an impact on profit of SEK 0.0 million (SEK 0.0 million).

Loss for the period after tax amounted to SEK -12.5 million (SEK 76.1 million Q4 2015).

Cash flow and financial position

Cash flow from operating activities including changes in working capital for the fourth quarter of 2016 amounted to SEK -7.7 million (SEK -34.3 million Q4 2015). Net cash flow from the financing operations amounted to SEK 7.0 million (SEK 48.9 million Q4 2015) during the same period. Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the period amounted to SEK 2.9 million compared to SEK 3.5 million as of 30 September 2016. Therefore the Company does not currently have sufficient funds to cover its needs for the next three months at the date of this report. If external funds are not provided, it is the assessment of the Board that there is a high risk that the Company will be facing a liquidity deficit. However, the majority owner Lau Su has announced to the Board that they are strongly committed to fulfil the new management's funding needs for the Company going forward. For more information please refer to Liquidity Risks.

At the end of the period, the Group's equity was SEK 489.7 million, compared to SEK 501.9 million as of 30 September 2016. For risks related to the Company's equity, please refer to the Going Concern Principle. The equity/assets ratio was 88.7 per cent compared to 89.8 per cent as of 30 September 2016. Net debt was SEK 8.5 million compared to SEK 0.8 million as of 30 September 2016.

Investments

Since the Company is currently not conducting any mining operations at the Laiva mine, only smaller investments have been made. Net investments during the quarter amounted to SEK -0.0 million, compared to SEK 0.6 million during the same quarter of 2015.

Segment reporting

As per January 2013, the Group stopped using a segment division as there has only been one productive mine in Finland within the Group, and exploration work is currently limited to an administrative scope due to cost savings. The consolidated income statements and balance sheets have been reviewed and valued thereafter.

Employees

During the fourth quarter of 2016, the average number of employees was 16.

No serious accidents were reported during the period.

Exploration

Due to cost savings, Nordic Mine's exploration work was more or less suspended at the beginning of 2013. In total, capitalised exploration expenses as of 31 December 2016 amounted to SEK 64.7 million.

Significant risks and uncertainties

All enterprise is associated with a certain degree of risk. Nordic Mines' operations must be assessed based on the risk, cost and difficulty that companies in the mining and exploration business often face. The risks in the majority of cases are such that the Company cannot protect itself from them.

The risk faced by mining and exploration companies is mainly associated with the outcome of the exploration itself, the production and the market price on the metal markets, but there is also risk associated with licensing issues related to exploration, processing and the environment.

The Group is also exposed to a number of financial risks: liquidity risk, credit risk, gold price risk and currency risk. The Board and Management attempt to address these risks by identifying, evaluating and mitigating the risks listed above where appropriate.

A more detailed analysis is available in the 2015 Annual Report as well as in the prospectus from 2015, which are available on the Company's website, www.nordicmines.se.

Liquidity risk

The Company currently does not have sufficient funds to cover its needs for the next three months at the date of this report. Cash and cash equivalents totalled SEK 2.9 million at the end of the fourth quarter 2016 and the Company basically does not have any income since production as the plant was closed, albeit there have been some modest timber sales in the fourth quarter. The Company is dependent on external capital contributions for continued operations.

The Company does not currently have the funds to restart operations at the Laiva mine. In order to fund the restart of the Laiva mine, a capital contribution in addition to existing cash and cash equivalents would be required. This capital contribution is intended to fund working capital related to the restart, initial investments and a liquidity reserve for unforeseen costs and administration. This funding is assumed to be a combination of debt financing and additional equity contributions.

If the Company fails to raise additional capital, there is a risk that a liquidity deficit will eventually occur. Given such a development, it is a risk that the Finnish composition plan would default, thus leading to a new reorganisation, bankruptcy or other winding down of the Company.

Composition plan Nordic Mines Oy

On 31 July 2014, the Uleåborg District Court decided to adopt the composition plan proposal filed with the court by the administrator for Nordic Mines' Finnish subsidiary. The composition plan includes conditions that allow the Company's creditors and the composition plan supervisor, attorney Hannu Ylönen from the Krogerus law firm, to apply for the composition to be revoked under certain conditions. Ground for termination include those related to the Group companies not fulfilling their payment obligations under the composition plan.

If Nordic Mines Oy breaches the composition plan, there is a risk that the Finnish composition plan will fail, which could lead to a new reorganisation, bankruptcy or other winding down of the Company. In the event the Finnish composition plan defaults, the relevant creditors' claims return to Nordic Mines Oy, at their full amount, and in the event of bankruptcy all shareholders will lose the entire amount of their previously invested share capital.

A more detailed analysis on the Composition plan in Nordic Mines Oy is available in the prospectus from 2015, which is available on the Company's website, www.nordicmines.se.

Gold price risk

Sales commenced in January 2012 and essentially have consisted of a single product, doré bars, containing gold, silver and copper. A decline in the price of gold could have a negative impact on the Group's future profit as well as a negative impact on the Company's possibilities for restarting operations at the Laiva mine.

Currency risk

Gold is quoted in USD, the majority of the costs occur in EUR and the Group is consolidated in SEK. Accordingly, the Company is directly dependent on exchange rates for these currencies. If USD strengthens against EUR, this has a positive effect. If EUR strengthens against SEK, this has a positive effect on sales, but a negative effect on costs.

Employees

Nordic Mines currently has a small organisation and is dependent on a number of key individuals. A limited expected lifetime and to date weak profitability for the Laiva mine can result in restricted opportunities to recruit key personnel once the mine restarts its operations.

Going concern principle

The Company currently does not have sufficient funds to cover its needs for the next twelve months at the date of this report. The Company basically has had no income since the production at the process plant was closed down, and it is therefore dependent on external capital contributions for its continued operation. For more information please refer to Liquidity Risks above.

There are no guarantees that external capital will be raised for continued operations. There are also no guarantees that, at the point in time when a decision must be made about the restart of operations, Nordic Mines will have sufficient liquidity to finance a restart of operations at the Laiva mine.

In a situation where it can no longer be assumed that the Group is a going concern, there is a risk that the Group's assets and the Parent Company's carrying amounts on receivables to Group companies and participations in subsidiaries will be subject to significant impairment losses.

Accounting principles

The consolidated accounts have been prepared in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as endorsed by the EU and recommendation RFR 1 issued by the Swedish Financial Reporting Board on Supplementary Accounting Rules for Groups, which specifies the additions to the IFRS disclosures that are required as stipulated­ in the Annual Accounts Act. This financial report was prepared in accordance with IAS 34, Interim Financial Reporting. The Parent Company's financial statements are prepared in accordance with the Annual Accounts Act and RFR 2, Accounting for Legal Entities. The Group uses the same accounting principles as those described in the 2015 Annual Report. No new IFRS additions or regulations that affect the Group have entered into force.

Definitions according to SveMin

A Mineral Resource is a concentration of occurrences of materials in or on the earth's crust in such form, quality and quantity that is of interest financially and for which financially profitable extraction is deemed possible. The location, quantity, grade, continuity and other geological characteristics of a mineral resource are measured, estimated or interpreted based on specific geological facts, tests and knowledge. On the basis of its geological certainty, a mineral resource is classified into the following categories: inferred mineral resource, indicated mineral resource and measured mineral resource.

An Inferred Mineral Resource is the part of a mineral resource for which the tonnage, density of occurrences, form, physical characteristics, grade and mineral content can be estimated with a low level of confidence. This is inferred from geological evidence, tests and assumed but not verified geological or grade continuity. It is based on information gathered using appropriate techniques through exploration and testing of, for example, outcrops, trenches, pits, workings and drill holes. The information is limited or of uncertain quality and reliability.

An Indicated Mineral Resource is the part of a mineral resource for which the tonnage, density of occurrences, form, physical characteristics, grade and mineral content can be assumed with a reasonable level of confidence. It is based on information gathered using appropriate techniques through exploration and testing of, for example, outcrops, trenches, pits, workings and drill holes. However, this information is too inconsistent or inappropriately distributed to guarantee geological or grade continuity.

A Measured Mineral Resource is the part of a mineral resource for which the tonnage, density of occurrences, form, physical characteristics, grade and mineral content can be assumed with a high level of confidence. It is based on information gathered using appropriate techniques through detailed and reliable exploration and testing of, for example, outcrops, trenches, pits, workings and drill holes. This information is sufficiently consistent to prove geological and/or grade continuity.

A Mineral Reserve is the part of a measured or indicated mineral resource that is deemed to be economically feasible for extraction. This includes diluting material and losses which may occur when the material is mined. Appropriate assessments and studies have been conducted and modified taking into consideration realistic assumptions related to mining, metallurgical, economic, marketing, legal, environmental, social and political factors. These assessments show on the reporting date that extraction can be reasonably justified. On the basis of their geological certainty, mineral reserves are classified into the following categories: probable mineral reserve and proven mineral reserve.

When using the term "mineral reserve", there is an expectation that studies have been conducted at the Pre-Feasibility level as a minimum, including a mining plan that is technically appropriate and economically viable.

A Probable Mineral Reserve is the part of an indicated or under some circumstances measured mineral resource for which extraction is economically viable. This includes diluting material and losses which occur when the material is mined. Studies at a minimum of the Pre-Feasibility level have been conducted and modified to take into consideration mining, metallurgical, economic, marketing, legal, environmental, social and political factors. These assessments show on the reporting date that extraction can be reasonably justified.

A Proven Mineral Reserve is the part of a measured mineral resource for which extraction is deemed to be economically viable. This includes diluting material and losses which occur when the material is mined. Studies at a minimum of the Pre-Feasibility level have been conducted and modified to take into consideration mining, metallurgical, economic, marketing, legal, environmental, social and political factors. These assessments show on the reporting date that extraction is justified.

Press release (PDF)

2016-12-21 Nordic Mines AB (publ): Encouraging Assay Results from sorting test work

On 26th September Nordic Mines ('The Company') announced the successful completion of a 70-ton sorting test at the Bjorkdal mine, Sweden. 25 tons of material was sent to two laboratories in Finland for sample preparation and assay.

We have now received assay results from the first batches of the Bjorkdal sorting test samples. Further assay results will be received in January.

We are very encouraged by the results to date. It is evident that optical sorting systems have the potential to transform the economics at the Laiva mine. However, there is room for improvement, both in sorter settings and washing for cleaner rock surfaces to facilitate quartz detection.

Whilst the forecast upgrades to 1.33 g/t are close to our best expectation, it is clear that further threshold optimization work needs to be carried out on the volcanics, the second of the ore types. Over aggressive threshold settings carried out on the volcanics during the tests, resulted in losses of gold in the waste, which with further adjustment of settings, we believe will be reduced. The settings used allowed mainly larger quartz particles to be sorted as ore and many of the smaller quartz particles were reported as waste.  By lowering the threshold settings for quartz in the ore type volcanics, more quartz including gold reports to the sorted ore stream.

Because optical sorting systems are in themselves a secondary strip, the exercise of going forward becomes a fine balance between increasing gold grade together with management of the waste fraction. Optimisation programs will continue even during the commercial phase. Table 1 presents the average result from the assays received. Further threshold tests are planned for the New Year.

It is important to note that the sorted ore will make up less than 50 % of the feed to the plant. The majority of the ore feed to the process plant are particles finer than the sorted rock being below 50 mm in size.  The fines derive partly from blasting, when the ore is mined, and partly from two crushing steps before the ore is further treated. The gold grade in this finer material is much higher than in the material that goes to the sorter because it contains more gold bearing quartz. Quartz is brittle and breaks down easily when blasted and crushed so that quartz and hence gold will accumulate more readily in finer particles. Also reporting to the feed is grinding media which by definition is comprised of coarser rock pieces measuring up to 200 mm. These have a lower gold grade than the material going to the sorter. Together these three materials, sorted ore, fine particles and grinding media, make up the final feed to the plant.

Andrew Malim, Head of Laiva Mine Development comments
We are pleased to report that based on an average - run - of - mine grade of 0,95 g/t, we estimate an upgrade of 40% for the assayed sorted quartz diorite ore combined with fines and grinding media which would be reporting to the mill. Further assay results are due in January 2017. The use of optical sorting during our commercial production phase is expected to lower our cutoff grade and hence upgrade our mineable reserves. This will allow a bulk mining approach which will transform our base case economics and make Laiva a profitable mine at current gold prices.

Upgrading results are most affected by thresholds and the size of the ore fractions. Hence, for reasons explained in this Release, ongoing optimisation of the programs will be necessary prior to and during operations from which I believe further grade improvements are still achievable.

CEO's Commentary
The recent sorting tests at Bjorkdal confirm our belief that the use of optical sorting used in tandem with the existing new AG mill will significantly enhance the grade and quality of our mill feed and provide the basis of a profitable restart of mining operations at Laiva once refinanced. We would like to thank the dedication of our staff and the advice and input of our partners at Outotec. More testwork on the volcanics will take place in the coming months and we believe that further grade improvements are achievable with practice and experience. We look forward to keeping shareholders updated with our progress

Proposals for resolutions

Item 6

a) Proposal to amend the articles of association to introduce a new class of shares, preferential shares

In order to introduce a new class of shares, preferential shares, and to complete the issues of shares under item b) and c) below, the board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to amend § 5 of the Company's articles of association so that the new wording will be as follows.

§ 5 Shares

5.1. Number of shares and class of shares

The number of shares shall be not less than 200,000,000 and not more than 800,000,000.

Two classes of shares may be issued: common shares and preferential shares.

Each common share entitles the holder to one (1) vote. Each preferential share entitles the holder to one-tenth (1/10) of a vote. Common shares and preferential shares may be issued corresponding not more than 100 per cent of the share capital.

5.2. Profit distribution

The preferential shares shall have preferential rights over the common shares to an annual dividend of SEK 0.044 per preferential share, paid out annually. The record date for payment of dividends shall be 15 June. In the event such day is not a banking day, i.e. a day that is not a Sunday, public holiday, Saturday, Midsummer's Eve, Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve, the record date shall be the closest preceding banking day. Payment of dividend on preference shares shall be made on the third banking day after the record date. The profit reported in the adopted balance sheet, which may be distributed in accordance with the provisions on protection of the company's restricted equity and the prudence rule stated in Chapter 17, Section 3 of the Swedish Companies Act, and which is an amount not exceeding what has been proposed by the Board as distribution of dividends, may not be exempt from dividends to preferential shareholders unless it has thus been decided by at least two-thirds of the representation of preferential shares at the annual general meeting. If no such dividends have been paid, or if only dividends of less than SEK 0.044 per preferential share have been paid for one or more years, the preferential shares shall then entitle their holders to, from the following year's distributable funds, also receive the Outstanding Sum (as per the definition, below) (including, to avoid any confusion, accrued Indexation Sum on the Outstanding Sum) before dividends on common shares may occur. If no dividends have been paid, or if only dividends of less than SEK 0.044 per preferential share have been paid for one or more years, the following year's annual general meeting will then decide on the distribution of annual payment of the Outstanding Sum. The preferential shares shall otherwise not entitle the holder to any dividends.

Each year, the difference between SEK 0.044 and the paid dividend per preferential share will be added to the Outstanding Sum (provided that the dividend decided at the annual general meeting is less than SEK 0.044 per preferential share). If the dividend per preferential share is made in accordance with a decision at a general meeting of shareholders other than the annual general meeting, the distributed amount per preferential share shall be deducted from the Outstanding Sum. The deduction shall occur as of the dividend payment date to preferential shareholders and shall thus be deemed equivalent to settlement of the portion of the Outstanding Sum that was first to arise. The Outstanding Sum shall be increased by a factor corresponding to an annual interest rate of eight (8) per cent ("Indexation Sum"), and the accrual start date shall be the date of payment for the dividend. Furthermore, the amount shall be based on the difference between SEK 0.044 and the paid dividend amount per preferential share on that same date of payment for the annual dividend.

5.3 Issues

For new share issues paid in cash or via offset, shareholders have pre-emption rights to the new shares in the following way: old shares shall entitle the holder to pre-emption rights on new shares of the same class; any shares not subscribed for by such eligible shareholders will be offered to all holders of shares and, in instances where the entire number of shares are not subscribed for via the latter offer, the shares will then be distributed amongst holders in relation to the number of shares they owned before and, to the extent that this not possible, through lottery.

For new share issues paid in cash or via offset of only one class of shares, shareholders have pre-emption rights to the new shares in relation to the number of shares they owned before.

For issues of warrants in exchange for cash or via offset, shareholders have pre-emption rights to subscribe for warrants as if the issue pertained to the shares that could possibly be newly subscribed for because of the warrant. Likewise, for issues of convertibles in exchange for cash or via offset, shareholders have pre-emption right to subscribe for convertibles, as if the issue pertained to the shares that the convertibles could possibly be exchanged for.

The above provisions shall not in any way limit the ability to make decisions on issues of shares, warrants or convertibles with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights.

An increase in share capital through a bonus issue may only occur through the issuance of common shares. In such instances, the bonus shares will be distributed amongst common shareholders according to the number of common shares owned before. The foregoing shall not impose any restriction on the possibility of, via a bonus issue or requisite change to the articles of association, issue shares of a new class.

5.4 Preferential share conversion clause

Holders of preferential shares shall have the right, but not the obligation, to require that preferential shares are converted to common shares. The conversion request must be submitted in writing to the board of directors and it must state the number of preferential shares that are to be converted to common shares and, if the request does not apply to the entire holding, which preferential shares the conversion pertains to.

The company must immediately notify the Swedish Companies Registration Office so that the conversion can be registered in the Register of Companies. The conversion is completed once registration has occurred and is recorded in the CSD register.

5.5 Preferential shares redemption

The first general meeting held after 29 November 2019 may resolve on a reduction of share capital, via redemption of preferential shares, however not below the minimum amount, in accordance with the following grounds.

The general meeting of shareholders decides the number of preferential shares to be redeemed. Exactly which preferential shares will be redeemed is decided at the general meeting by lottery. If the decision is supported by all preferential shareholders, however, the general meeting may decide which preferential shares will be redeemed.

Holders of a preferential share that has been ordered for redemption shall be obliged to accept payment for the share at an amount calculated as the sum of SEK 0.55 plus any Outstanding Sum as per item 5.2 (including, to avoid any confusion, accrued Indexation Sum on the Outstanding Sum up to and including the date when payment of the redemption amount falls due).

This shall occur either three months after the holder has been notified of the redemption decision, or, in instances where court approval for the decrease is required, three months after the holder has been notified of the fact that the court's legally binding decision approving the redemption has been registered. From the day when payment of the redemption amount falls due, all calculations of interest shall cease thereafter.

5.6 Redemption or conversion in the event of Change of control

In the event of a change of control, which means that a legal or natural person acquires more than 50 per cent of the shares or votes of the company, the owner of preferential shares has the right to request either:

1. that each of the owner's preferential shares are converted to common shares, or

2. that each of the owner's preferential shares shall be redeemed by the company to a redemption price equal to 130 per cent of the sum of SEK 0.55 plus any Outstanding Sum as per item 5.2 (including, to avoid any confusion, accrued Indexation Sum on the Outstanding Sum up to and including the date when payment of the redemption amount falls due).

The company shall undertake actions to meet such request as soon as possible after the receipt of such request.

b) Proposal to approve the board of directors' resolution to issue common shares with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights

The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to approve the board of directors' proposal as of 29 November 2016, to increase the Company's share capital with not more than SEK 3,684,403.54 by an issue of not more than 8,347,182 common shares in accordance with the following conditions.

1. The right to subscribe for new common shares shall, with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, belong to Lau Su Holding AB, corp. reg. no 556860-5421.

4. The new common shares are issued at a subscription price of SEK 0.55 per share.

2016-11-30 NORDIC MINES AB (publ): Financial remodelling with the aim to restart the mine 2017, introduces a new share class and conducts directed new share issues of SEK 23 million

Nordic Mines is planning to re-model the value chain financially and operatively by outsourcing the processing plant operations through a lease model. By doing this, it becomes capital efficient, reduces risk, and generates margins of 38 percent on a base gold price scenario of USD 1080/ounce. The approach is to make Nordic Mines "do much more with much less" and start production during 2017. The board of directors of Nordic Mines has further, subject to approval by an extraordinary general meeting, resolved to issue common shares and preferential shares for SEK 23 million. The preferential shares are to be introduced by a change in Nordic Mines articles of association, which is proposed to be resolved upon by the extraordinary general meeting.

  • Nordic Mines plans to re-model the value chain at Laiva and re-calibrating margins by separating upstream (mining operations) and down stream (processing plant) activities.
  • As part of the target operating model, Nordic Mines plans to outsource (a) Processing plant operations and (b) Gold off-take to an Indian based gold trading player with a fixed margin, in line with industry standard in the gold trading business, resulting in  a USD 400/ounce cost-outsourcing.
  • The model has been designed for a threshold annual production of 1200 kgs, and would be executed through a 10-year processing plant lease model with the outsourcing partner.
  • Nordic Mines value chain transformation aims at rewarding the residual mining operations with a significantly improved margin and reducing sensitivity of its profitability to gold price movements. This transformation program enables profitable production within 2017.
  • The board of directors of Nordic Mines has resolved to, subject to approval by an extraordinary general meeting, issue common shares and preferential shares, directed to the current shareholder Lau Su Holding AB and to Lao Tzu Investments AB.

Nordic Mines is in discussions with U.A.E based Viren Jewellers LLC (Turnover USD 3,5B) and Indian based Swarn Shilp Pvt Ltd (Annual turnover USD 700M), gold trading players of repute, to negotiate an outsourcing contract for gold-ore processing and gold off-take, which would be executed through a 10-year operative lease of processing plant at a flat lease cost of USD 400/ounce.

Nordic Mines intends to mandate accounting and payroll outsourcing advisory firm Visma Services AB, who along with Ola Wahlquist senior advisor at Nordic Mines, former senior partner at Ernst &Young, will work closely to formulate the lease outsourcing agreement in lines with IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) best practices, and help Nordic Mines establish the outsourcing structure on ground.

The transformed operating model is aimed at both increasing efficiency by 20 percent and improving Nordic Mines gross margin to around 38 percent at base case gold price of USD 1080/ounce.

Nordic Mines has already documented a 20 percent increase in business efficiency by improving costs by USD 100 each accruing from mine operations and processing plant operations (total USD 200/ounce). India is the largest consumer of gold in the world. Reliable and consistent supply has been a constraint for a lot of the gold traders in India. It makes imminent business sense to direct our production to India. The off-take model enables Nordic Mines to pass significant cash-cost risks to its gold trading partners. This substantially improves production margins. Moreover, the profitability scenario is considerably less sensitive to gold price movements and improves viability even in downturns.

Nordic Mines estimates an additional funding requirement of USD 5M to establish the leased outsourcing model. Funds will be primarily deployed towards start-up mining costs, composition plan exit, implementing the measures identified to deliver 20 percent efficiency pre-outsourcing, legal structuring, and applying sorting technology to the waste dump to process gold from the existing stockpile by installing a sorting pilot plant.

- It is doing much more with much less innovation. It minimizes risk in a capital-intensive industry. Our approach is to make Nordic Mines capital efficient by customer facing the mine to the Indian market, says Chairman Vinod Sethi.

- Executing this model will be a breakthrough. We as investors have the conviction on this model. Out of the additional USD 5M equity required to put the model in place, the current USD 2M equity arrangement from Lau Su Holding AB and our USD 0,75M existing shareholder debt conversion to equity means lead promoters have already underwritten more than 50 percent of the equity requirement for gold production targeted to commence within 2017. Although we have shareholder group interests for the gap of USD 2M as well on this model, we would prefer some institutional presence in Nordic Mines balance sheet, says Lau Su Holding's Pranay Panda.  

The past six months of work around sorting does indicate the potential that Nordic Mines can reach from a total mine life and production volume perspective which is much higher than the base case business scenario on 1200 kgs gold production. The attempt will be to similarly outsource the operative and capital cost components associated with sorting through a revised lease outsourcing/off-take agreement for the additional gold output.

The new operating model will enable Nordic Mines to have a much greater ability and agility to enhance the additional efficiency drivers - sorting being a very important lever among those. This approach enables the sorting business case to stand over the base case scenario in a capital efficient way, by using our deep access into the Indian gold market. Nordic Mines ends up reducing risk by using the approach of doing much more with much less.

- We have been fortunate that our gold is principally in quartz veins and quartz is easy to sort. Such is not the case with many mines. Sorting is indeed a potential game changer but we still have to develop a sorting algorithm and that would entail setting up a pilot plant. The algorithm will be the foundation of laying up the sorting business case over the base case. With our outsourcing approach, we will achieve this in a capital efficient way, comments Vinod Sethi.

- Our first step would be to build the base case to establish profitability and business viability without sorting and then make sorting stand over the base case. Sorting is the overflow to the base case illustrated above, concludes Pranay Panda.

Resolution on new issues of shares and proposal to amend the company's articles of association

The board of directors of Nordic Mines has decided to (i) issue up to 8,347,182 new common shares, corresponding to an increase in the company's share capital up to no more than SEK 3,684,403.54 and to (ii) issue up to 33,388,727 preferential shares, corresponding to an increase in the company's share capital up to no more than SEK 14,737,613.73. The board of directors' decisions are subject to approval by the extraordinary general meeting, and that the extraordinary general meeting resolves to amend the company's articles of associations in accordance with the board of directors' proposal.

Terms of the preferential shares

The preferential shares will entitle the holder to one-tenth (1/10) of a vote and have preferential rights over the common shares to an annual dividend of 0.044 SEK per preferential share. Further, the holders of preferential shares shall have the right to convert preferential shares to common shares.

Terms of the new issues of shares

The subscription price will be SEK 0.55 per common share and SEK 0.55 per preferential share. The board of directors of Nordic Mines deems the subscription prices per common share and preferential share to be equal to the market price, as it equals the last closing price of the Nordic Mines common share on 29th November 2016, being the last trading day prior to this announcement, and with consideration to the financial situation of the company.

The right to subscribe for the new common shares shall, with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, belong to Lau Su Holding AB. The right to subscribe for new preferential shares shall, with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, belong to Lau Su Holding AB and Lao Tzu Investments AB.

Lau Su Holding AB currently holds 27.22 percent of the total number of shares and votes in Nordic Mines and is the company's largest shareholder. Pranay Panda, board member of Nordic Mines, is also the chairman of Lau Su Holding AB. Lau Su Holding AB will be entitled to subscribe for up to 8,347,182 common shares and up to 29,215,136 preferential shares. Lau Su Holding AB shall pay SEK 4,590,950.10 for the 8,347,182 common shares through payment in cash. Lau Su Holding AB intends to pay SEK 9,181,900.20 for 16,694,364 of the preferential shares through payment in cash, and intends to pay SEK 6,886,425.15 for 12,520,773 preferential shares through a set-off of shareholder loans.

Lau Su Holding AB will, upon the completion of the new issues of common shares and preferential shares, hold shares corresponding to 28.62 percent of the total number of votes and 31.54 percent of the total share capital in Nordic Mines.

Vinod Sethi, the chairman of Nordic Mines, and Salim Govani, board member of Nordic Mines, are also board members of Lao Tzu Investments AB.  Kari Langenoja, board member of Nordic Mines, is the chairman of Lao Tzu Investments AB. Lao Tzu Investments AB will be entitled to subscribe for up to 4,173,591 preferential shares and intends to pay SEK 2,295,475.05 for the 4,173,591 preferential shares through a set-off of a shareholder loan.

Lao Tzu Investments AB currently does not hold any shares in Nordic Mines but will, upon completion of the new issue of preferential shares, hold preferential shares corresponding to 0.07 percent of the total number of votes and 0.7 percent of the total share capital in Nordic Mines.

After the completion of the new issues the total share capital will amount to SEK 268,129,155.13 and the total number of shares will amount to 607,458,665, of which 574,069,938 are common shares and 33,388,727 preferential shares.

The completion of the new issues will result in a dilution effect of approximately 2.02 percent in the number of votes and 6.87 percent in the total share capital, calculated on the total number of votes and total share capital upon completion of the new issues.

The new issue of common shares and the new issue of preferential shares are subject to approval by the extraordinary general meeting, and also that the extraordinary general meeting resolves to amend the company's articles of association in accordance with the board of directors' proposals. The extraordinary general meeting will be held at 10.00 CET on 9 January 2017 at Visma Services premises at Lindhagensgatan 94 in Stockholm.

2016-09-26 Nordic Mines: Encouraging early results from sorting test work

The English text is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original, and in the event of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation the Swedish text shall take precedence.

PRESS RELEASE, 26 September 2016

Nordic Mines ("The Company") is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed a 70-ton sorting test at the Björkdal mine, Sweden. The company was able to use the same sorting equipment and facilities that the Björkdal mine used in their 60,000-ton test on lower grade ore. During testing we confirmed that the laser sorting technique consistently detects Laiva's gold bearing quartzveins and is therefore the appropriate technology for sorting the Laiva gold ore. 

This 70-ton test allowed the company to run the sorting machine at full speed and together with the data from the tests completed previously, provide a similar level of feedback as from a much larger test. 

Upon visual inspection, the sorting tests have shown very encouraging results. Sorted waste contained only minor amounts of visible ore particles. The sorted ore product has been clearly upgraded with quartz material. Around 60-70% of the sorted sample has been rejected as waste.

The tests were designed to test all main ore bearing rock types of the Laiva deposit with gold contents of 0,6 g/t (low grade), 0,9 g/t (medium grade) and 1,2 g/t (high grade) and over a range of particle sizes. The sorting equipment consists of two opposing laser beam sets that scan each rock fragment fed through the system before it goes to the processing plant. The scattering of the beam on the surface of each rock is analysed and instantly sorted as ore or waste according to predefined thresholds of surface quartz levels detected.

Part of the continuous process is to optimise this so that waste material contains as little ore as possible. This will be confirmed via laboratory assays of the waste and ore piles. Management expects to have all sample assaying completed by November from which grade upgrades can be calculated. This information will be used in the creation of new bulk mining pit designs and together with an infill drilling program, will lead to a recalculation of mineable ore reserves.  

Andrew Malim, Head of Laiva Mine Development comments." This Björkdal program was the culmination of 2 years intensive study by the Laiva management team of ore sorting as a means of commercially upgrading lower grade ores, lowering cut off grades and mining costs. More importantly, it allows for a bulk mining approach which is the best fit model for the Laiva style of mineralisation and the existing AG plant.

Although magnetic and colour sorting systems have been widely used in other industries such as scrap steels and foodstuffs since the 1930's, optical sorting in mining (colour, laser, XRT and XRF) is now coming of age. Various versions are today used in over 50 mines worldwide and we predict will be in even more common usage in the near future. We confidently expect the assay results from the current test, due in November, to reflect results from our earlier tests where we saw a minimum 35% ore upgrade across the board.

2016-07-28 The Disciplinary Committee of Nasdaq imposes a fine on Nordic Mines

The English text is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original, and in the event of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation the Swedish text shall take precedence.

PRESS RELEASE, 28 July 2016

The Disciplinary Committee of Nasdaq Stockholm (the "Disciplinary Committee") imposes a fine of seven times the annual listing fee [approx. MSEK 1,5] on Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or the "Company"). The decision made by the Disciplinary Committee is partly based upon the Swedish Securities Council previous appraisal that the approach by which Lao Su Holding AB was allowed to subscribe for new shares in the Company's Rights Issue 2015 was not in accordance with good practice on the stock market.

At the time of the rights issue the Company was in an extremely distressed financial situation and could not see that any alternative options were available. As is further set forth in the Company's previous statement to the Securities Council, it is the view of the Company that there was a high probability that the Finnish composition plan would have defaulted should the Company have failed to complete the Rights Issue, which in turn could have led to a new reorganisation, bankruptcy or other liquidation of the Company.

During 2016 the company has strengthened its organisation and a new management team is in place from beginning of the year together with a new board.

2016-05-25 Nordic Mines AB: New Scoping Level Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Laiva project after updating of the Mineral Resource Estimate

The English text is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original, and in the event of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation, the Swedish text shall take precedence.

Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or the "Company") has prepared a new Scoping Level Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Laiva Project ("Laiva" or the "Project") (the "Assessment") following the publication of a new Mineral Resource Estimate on May 17, 2016. The reported Assessment is compliant with the current standard of the Fennoscandian Review Board.

Base Case

  • Project Net Present Value ("NPV") of EUR 77 million[1]
  • Total gold production of 529 thousand tr.oz over 7 year Life-of-Mine ("LoM")

2016-05-17 Nordic Mines reports an updated Mineral Resource based on a sorting process

The English text is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original, and in the event of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation, the Swedish text shall take precedence.

PRESS RELEASE, 17 May 2016

Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or the "Company") is reporting an updated Mineral Resource Estimate for the Laiva mine as of May 16, 2016.

The updated Mineral Resource Estimate is based upon recent ore sorting tests of a small tonnage throughput from the Laiva deposit. The JORC Code 2012 compliant Mineral Resource update is further based upon the Company's January 1, 2015 Mineral Reserve and Mineral Resource report using the January 1, 2015 pit shell data and mining cut off grades as benchmarks but reporting from updated pit shells based on updated costs and technical data as a result of the ore sorting scenario test work results.

Using a USD 1,400 gold price (previous USD 1,510) and a cut off grade at 0.3 g/t (previous 0.6 g/t), a reduction of 0.3 g/t due to the sorting, the Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource is 24,320,000 tons (1.13 g/t), containing gold of 885,000 tr.oz. In addition, the Inferred Mineral Resource is 4,370,000 tons (1.64 g/t), containing 231,000 tr.oz. This is a 13% increase in contained gold (measured/indicated) compared to the previous resource statement. Using the same gold price as in the previous model the increase in contained gold would be around 25%.

2016-02-03 Changes in Nordic Mines' Management

The English text is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original, and in the event of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation the Swedish text shall take precedence.

PRESS RELEASE 3 February 2016

Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or the Company) appoints Mr. D. Saradhi Rajan as new CEO of the Company. Mr. Rajan will be supported by a management team consisting of Mr. Nigel Pickett (Head, Strategy & Business Development), Mr. Andrew Malim (Head, Laiva Mine Development), Mr. Peter Finnäs (General Manager, Laiva) and Mr. Peter Kuiper (Development Manager, Laiva).

New members of the management team
Mr. Rajan has led the acquisition, profitable rehabilitation and growth of mining assets around the world. Over the last 10 years he has built successful mining operations with a focus on creating low cost high efficiency operations, which are profitable across the commodity price cycle. 

Mr. Malim was an award winning founding member of the James Capel mining team and founder of the Lion Mining Group ("Lion Mining"). Over a 23 year period, the Lion team developed and successfully exited several significant gold projects in western Canada, the US, and copper in Mexico and Africa. Mr. Malim specialises in mining and geologic structural analysis.     

Mr. Pickett is a mechanical and production engineering specialist. He has worked on several technical and business performance improvement projects including the redevelopment of process plants.

Mr. Finnäs and Mr. Kuiper will continue to be an integral part of the management team.

Strategy going forward
The Company will now focus on: initiating an exit from the composition plan, planning and preparing for the Laiva mine to operate as a globally competitive operation and reiterate investors confidence in Nordic Mines as an investment case.

Recent work supports the strategy to couple Laiva's promising geology with careful grade focussed mining, intelligent use of processing technology and an intense focus on cost metrics in order to reduce cash costs to globally competitive levels and targeting volumes allowing the mill to operate at full capacity.  The aim is further to create a business operation, which is profitable across the commodity price cycle.

The Majority owner Lau Su Holding AB has announced to the Board of Directors that they are strongly committed to fulfil the new management's funding needs for the Company.

Given the Company's focus on operational costs and efficiencies, the intent is to move the management closer to the Laiva mine site. This will help in orchestrating the core management's focus on developing the property in close coordination with the operational team on-site.

Outgoing management
The current CEO of Nordic Mines Mrs. Eva Kaijser and the Company's CFO Mr. Jonatan Forsberg has chosen to leave their respective positions in Nordic Mines at latest by the end of February 2016. They will thereafter continue as senior advisors for the Company.

Mrs. Eva Kaijser was appointed CEO of Nordic Mines in May 2015. During her time as CEO Mrs. Kaijser has managed Nordic Mines through a complex refinancing process where the Company now has regained full control over previously pledged asset thus enabling the new management off Nordic Mines to develop the Company and the Laiva project to its full potential.

Mr. Jonatan Forsberg was appointed CFO of Nordic Mines in March 2014. During his time as CFO the Nordic Mines Group has completed a financial reconstruction through two complex transaction processes in 2014 and 2015. In total, gross financial debt of more than half a billion Swedish kronor has been removed from the Company's balance sheet and 250 million Swedish kronor have been raised as equity capital to strengthen the balance sheet further.

2016-01-13 The Swedish Securities Council issues a statement with respect to Nordic Mines

The English text is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original, and in the event of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation the Swedish text shall take precedence.

PRESS RELEASE 13 January 2016

The Swedish Securities Council has attended to a petition from Nasdaq Stockholm AB regarding the new issue of shares with preferential right for existing shareholders in Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or the "Company") which was completed during the fourth quarter 2015 (the "Rights Issue"). The Swedish Securities Council makes the appraisal that the approach by which Lao Su Holding AB was allowed to subscribe for new shares in the Rights Issue was not in accordance with good practice on the stock market.

The Company regrets that the Securities Council has reached the conclusion set forth in the Council's statement, especially given that the Company, in consideration of the extremely distressed financial situation that the Company found itself in at the time of the Rights Issue, could not see that any alternative options were available to the Company. As is further set forth in the Company's statement to the Securities Council, it is the view of the Company that there was a high probability that the Finnish composition plan would have defaulted should the Company have failed to complete the Rights Issue, which in turn could have lead to a new reorganisation, bankruptcy or other liquidation of the Company.

PRESS RELEASE, 18 November 2015

Nasdaq Stockholm have, after dialogue with Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or the "Company") decided to temporarily give Nordic Mines' share observation status in anticipation of payments for the rights issue for existing shareholders (the "Rights Issue").

As set forth in the press release published on Friday 13 November 2015 and the supplementary prospectus published on Monday 16 November 2015, the Company has entered into an agreement with Lau Su Holding AB (the "Investor") pursuant to which such company has committed to the subscription of 233,500,000 new shares for a total of SEK 46,700,000. The commitment is not secured, but the Indian company Royal Refinery Private Limited has entered into a surety undertaking for its fulfillment. Pursuant to the undertaking, payment for the subscribed shares shall be made no later than 28 November 2015, which date has been agreed due to the requirement of a permit for export of capital from India. Conditional on the undertaking being fulfilled (including due payment), the Investor shall, as consideration for the undertaking, be entitled to a share based compensation corresponding to 114,419,495 new shares (which shall be paid for by set off, based on the subscription price in the Rights Issue, of a cash remuneration of SEK 22,883,899). The undertaking has been procured by the Company in order to ensure reaching a satisfactory subscription rate in the Rights Issue. The agreement, and the therein included commitment fee, has been negotiated between the parties. Several other investors have been contacted and also other forms of financing have been sought. The agreement and the conditions therein have thereby been tested against the market.

As set forth in the Company's prospectus, which was approved and registered by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority on Friday 23 October and published by the Company the same date, the Company (as of the date of the prospectus) does not have access to sufficient working capital during the next twelve months. The deficit is expected to arise before the year end and if the Company fails with a capital raising through the Rights Issue it is most likely that it could lead to a new corporate reorganization, bankruptcy or other liquidation of the Company.

The prospectus and the supplementary prospectus is available on Nordic Mines' website (www.nordicmines.com) and Evli Bank's website (www.evli.com).

PRESS RELEASE 13 November 2015

Nordic Mines receives around SEK 80 million from the new share issue and receives a new industrial main owner

Subscription applications corresponding to approximately SEK 80 million were submitted in Nordic Mines AB's (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or "the Company") rights issue for existing shareholders (the "Rights Issue"). The Board of Directors of Nordic Mines ("the Board") therefore has made the assessment that the conditions for reaching a satisfactory subscription rate in the Rights Issue are good and that it should be possible to fulfil all of the terms and conditions for the Rights Issue. Nordic Mines will then also be able to fulfil its commitments in accordance with the agreement with the Company's lenders entered into on 6 October 2015, under which Nordic Mines will acquire all of the lenders' claims on Group companies in accordance with the existing project financing agreement.

Assuming that submitted subscription applications are fulfilled, Nordic Mines will gain a new main owner - Lau Su Holding AB ("the Investor"), which will own 61.5 per cent of the shares. The Investor is controlled by a number of investors with a background in the Indian gold industry among other areas. These investors include Royal Refinery Private Limited, which is based in Mumbai, India.

"We are satisfied with the preliminary outcome of the rights issue and the support from both old shareholders and our new main owner. After we receive the funds from the rights issue, we will be able to conclude the agreement reached with the Company's lenders regarding the acquisition of the debt to the banks and thus regain full control over pledged assets. Nordic Mines now gains financial longevity as it waits for a more beneficial gold price and in addition also the opportunity to start a strategic journey with our new ownership base," comments Nordic Mines CEO Eva Kaijser on the outcome of the rights issue.

Rights Issue

The Rights Issue was decided by the Board on 20 September 2015 and approved by a Nordic Mines extraordinary general meeting on 21 October 2015.

The Company has now received applications for the subscription of new shares in the Rights Issue totalling 397,272,829. In addition, 114,419,495 shares will be issued that will be paid for by offsetting the Investor's share-based commitment compensation (see Commitment to subscribe to new shares below). This means that the number of shares in the Company increases to a total of 565,722,756 and that the Company's share capital increases by SEK 5,116,923.24 to SEK 5,616,923.24 kronor. Of the shares for which subscription applications were received, 150,377,749 shares were subscribed for with preferential rights and 246,895,080 were subscribed for without preferential rights.

Payment

Payment notices will be sent to the subscribers within the next few days. Payments for the Rights Issue must be made in accordance with the included instructions to a special account at Evli Bank. The funds will be released to the Company first after required payments for the issue are received, which is estimated to occur around 28 November 2015, after which the Rights Issue can be concluded.

Once payment for the new shares has been received, the paid subscribed shares (BTAs in Swedish) will be booked on each subscriber's VP account. This is expected to occur at the earliest in week 49. These BTAs will be traded on Nasdaq Stockholm. As soon as the increase in the share capital has been registered by the Swedish Companies Registration Office, received BTAs will be converted into new shares.

The new shares that are received will be admitted for trading on Nasdaq Stockholm.

PRESS RELEASE 9 November 2015

Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or "the Company") has agreed on a final agreement with the Company's lenders, under which Nordic Mines will acquire all of the lenders' claims on Group companies in accordance with the existing project financing agreements. This confirms the agreement in principle, which was announced through a press release on 21 September 2015. The Company is now conducting a new share issue with preferential rights for existing shareholders (the "Rights Issue"), and Nordic Mines intends to fund the purchase through the Rights Issue. The agreement with the Company's lenders entails that:

  • The Company purchases all of the lenders' claims on Group companies in accordance with the existing project financing agreements for a purchase price of EUR 5 million. This corresponds to an additional write-down of the original loan amounts of approximately EUR 10 million. Before the first write-down in the summer 2014 the outstanding debt amounted to more than EUR 45 million.
  • The agreement also includes outstanding warrants held by the lenders corresponding to an ownership of 12 per cent.
  • Nordic Mines regains through this purchase full control over the assets that are pledged in accordance with the project financing agreements.

The Company's obligation to carry out the acquisition is conditional on that the Company's board resolves and announces that the conditions for the Rights Issue have been achieved. If this condition is not achieved no later than 4 December 2015 or the acquisition has not been completed no later than the 13 December 2015, the agreement can be terminated. The agreement can also be terminated before that, if the Company does not obtain subscription applications corresponding to at least the purchase price and there is no reason to expect that the Company will, no later than 13 November 2015, obtain subscription applications or secure other financing, acceptable to the lenders, in an amount corresponding to at least the purchase price.

For the Rights Issue, inter alia, the following terms apply:

  • The subscription price has been set to SEK 0.20 per share.
  • The proceeds from the Rights Issue will, in case of full subscription, amount to just over SEK 108 million prior to transaction costs related to the Rights Issue.
  • The subscription period will run until 9 November 2015.


The prospectus and the subscription form (with or without subscription rights) are available at www.nordicmines.se. A supplementary prospectus will be published by reason of the agreement with the lenders.

Nordic Mines has engaged Evli Bank and PWC Corporate Finance Debt & Capital Advisory as financial advisors.

Not for distribution, directly or indirectly, in or into the United States, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Canada , New Zealand, Singapore or South Africa or in any other jurisdiction where the distribution of this press release would be unlawful

PRESS RELEASE, 23 October 2015

The Board of Directors of Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or the "Company") has prepared a prospectus for the rights issue (the "Rights Issue") announced on 21 September 2015 and resolved upon by the extraordinary general meeting of the Company on 21 October 2015. The prospectus has today been approved and registered by the Swedish Financial Security Authority (Sw. Finansinspektionen).  The prospectus is now available on Nordic Mines' website (www.nordicmines.com) and Evli Bank's website (www.evli.com). The prospectus can also be obtained from Evli Bank in Stockholm during office hours on phone no +46-8-407 80 00. The particular application form for application for subscription in the Rights Issue can be downloaded on Evli Bank's website and Nordic Mines' website.

The Company publishes in the prospectus liabilities, equity and net debt as of 30 September 2015. The current interest-bearing liabilities amount to SEK 2.3 million, the non-current interest-bearing liabilities amount to SEK 132.7 million and the equity amounts to SEK 389.9 million. The net debt amounts to SEK 105.6 million. The Company's liquid assets as per the same date amount to SEK 21.1 million.

Conditions for the Rights Issue and conditions for application for subscription

In order to protect the shareholders' from injecting capital to the Company other than if the Rights Issue meets the sufficient subscription rate, the Rights Issue is conditional upon that a sufficiently high acceptance level in the Rights Issue, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, may be achieved and that the Company and the group's lenders entering into, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, the necessary agreements with respect to the receivables on the group companies under the existing finance documents and that such agreements, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, are likely to be implemented as intended. Any application for subscription is conditional on the conditions for the Rights Issue being achieved.

Issue proceeds

The plan is to use the funds raised by the Rights Issue for:

  • The equivalent of EUR 5 million for the purchase of all of the lenders' claims on Group companies.
  • Around EUR 3 million to fund the Company for the next 12 months while waiting for more beneficial external factors in the form of primarily the gold price and currency rates.
  • Excess funds raised from the share issue will provide the Company with enhanced financial longevity and the ability to carry out value-enhancing activities, primarily at the Laiva mine.

The proceeds from the Rights Issue will, in case of full subscription, amount to just over SEK 108 million prior to transaction costs related to the Rights Issue. In order for the acceptance level to be considered sufficiently high, it is, at the time of announcement of the prospectus, the Board of Directors' view that the proceeds of the Rights Issue must amount to around SEK 80 million prior to current transaction costs related to the Rights issue (that is, the equivalent of a minimum subscription volume of in total around SEK 80 million with addition of any, from 16 October 2015, unpaid transaction costs), however that the Board of Directors may take into account other financing (including debt financing)  which together with the proceeds from the Rights issue amounts to around SEK 80 million, prior to current transaction costs related to the Rights issue.

PRESS RELEASE 21 October 2015

Today, October 21 2015, Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or "the Company") will be holding an extraordinary general meeting ("the Meeting") as a result of the Board's decision to conduct a new issue of shares with pre-emption rights for the Company's shareholders subject to the Meeting's subsequent approval ("the Rights Issue"). Due to the Rights Issue, the Company has also opted to move the publication of the Company's financial report for the third quarter forward to 30 October 2015. At the Meeting the Company's CEO, Eva Kaijser, will present the underlying information that Nordic Mines took into consideration prior to its decision to conduct the Rights Issue and the Company's current activities and strategy moving forward, including, for example:

  • In order to obtain enhanced financial longevity while waiting for more beneficial external factors, such as the price of gold and exchange rates, which are needed to restart operations at the Laiva mine, Nordic Mines has initiated a number of measures to reduce the Company's total operating costs. These measures include the cost savings at the Laiva mine that were described in detail in the press release dated 13 August 2015. It is the Company's expectation that the measures, when fully implemented, will reduce the Company's total operating costs by approximately one-third. Through streamlining, the Company's overhead costs have been reduced by approximately 50 percent.
  • The Laiva mine's General Manager, Tom Söderman has, as previously announced, decided at his own request to step down from his post. The Company's current Exploration Manager, Peter Finnäs, will replace Tom Söderman until further notice as the Acting General Manager starting on 1 November 2015.
  • Nordic Mines has made the assessment at this point in time that a gold price of around EUR 1,200 per troy ounce is required to restart operations at the Laiva mine as an independent gold project with sufficient profitability and with the possibility for future financing through loans.
  • In order to fund the restart of the Laiva mine at a later date, the Company's assessment as of today is that an additional capital contribution of EUR 20 million in addition to the Rights Issue would be required whereof approximately half the amount is intended to fund working capital related to the restart. The remaining amount constitutes initial investments and a liquidity reserve for unforeseen costs and administration. This funding is assumed to be a combination of debt financing and additional capital contributions.
  • The Company considers there to be possibilities for strengthening the Laiva project through partnerships and structural transactions with other actors in the Nordic gold mining industry. Nordic Mines believes that gold concentrate from several Nordic gold mines could be refined in the Nordic Mines processing plant, thereby processing the final product all the way from gold concentrate to doré bars and subsequently improving profitability. There are also clear synergies in the form of purchasing optimisation and streamlined administration.
  • Given the current status of the industry and the global factors that are affecting it, the Board of Directors will regularly assess and consider strategic partnerships and mergers as well as divestitures of the Laiva project, in its entirety or in part, if such are considered to be beneficial for the Company's shareholders.

The Meeting is being held as a result of the funding solution previously presented by the Company, which entails that Nordic Mines has reached an agreement in principle with the Company's lenders under which Nordic Mines will acquire all of the lenders' claims on Group companies in accordance with existing project financing agreements. Under the agreement in principle:

  • The Company will acquire all of the lenders' claims on Group companies in accordance with the existing project financing agreements for a purchase price of around EUR 5 million. This corresponds to an additional write-down of around EUR 10 million. The original debt was around EUR 45 million.
  • The agreement also includes outstanding warrants held by the lenders corresponding to an ownership of 12 per cent and the thereto related promissory note.
  • Nordic Mines regains through this purchase full control over the assets that are pledged in accordance with the project financing agreement.

The purchase will be financed through the Rights Issue, which will inject around SEK 108 million into the Company at full subscription. The plan is to use the funds raised by the Rights Issue for:

  • The equivalent of EUR 5 million for the purchase of all of the lenders' claims on Group companies.
  • Around EUR 3 million to fund the Company for the next 12 months while waiting for more beneficial external factors in the form of primarily the gold price and currency rates.
  • Excess funds raised from the share issue will provide the Company with enhanced financial longevity and the ability to carry out value-enhancing activities, primarily at the Laiva mine.

The agreement in principle with the Company's lenders is conditional upon final contract documentation, on formal internal decisions regarding the approval of the agreement being made by each bank and in addition that the Company raises funds for the purchase price.

Nordic Mines has engaged Evli Bank and PWC Corporate Finance Debt & Capital Advisory as financial advisors.

2015-10-16 The Board of Directors of Nordic Mines resolves on final terms for rights issue in an amount of not less than SEK 80 million

The English text is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original, and in the event of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation the Swedish text shall take precedence.

PRESS RELEASE, October 16, 2015

On September 21, 2015, the Board of Directors of Nordic Mines AB (publ) (the "Company" or "Nordic Mines") announced that it had, subject to the Extraordinary General Meeting's subsequent approval, resolved on a new issue of shares with pre-emption rights for the existing shareholders (the "Rights issue") and on a directed new share issue.

The Board of Directors has now resolved on the final terms for (i) the Rights issues (item 7 d) on the proposed agenda) and (ii) the thereto related amendment of the Articles of Association (item 7 c) on the proposed agenda), in accordance with the below. Further, the Board of Directors has at the same time, after evaluating the capital raise process, decided to withdraw the directed new share issue (item 7 e) on the proposed agenda).

The Extraordinary General Meeting will be held in Stockholm on October 21, 2015, at 9.30 a.m. (CET). The notice to the Extraordinary General Meeting is available on Nordic Mines' webpage, www.nordicmines.se.

Final terms, etc.
7 c) Amendment of the Articles of Association
The Board of Directors proposes that the Extraordinary General Meeting resolves to amend paragraphs 4 and 5 of the Company's Articles of Association regarding the limits for the share capital and the number of shares, respectively, to have the following wording.

Limits for the share capital (§ 4 of the Articles of Association)
The share capital shall not be less than SEK 2,000,000 and not be higher than SEK 8,000,000.

Limits for the number of shares (§ 5 in the Articles of Association)
The number of shares shall not be less than 200,000,000 shares and not more than 800,000,000 shares.

7 d) Rights issue
The Board of Directors has resolved on the following terms and conditions with respect to the Rights issue:

  • The share capital shall be increased by a maximum of SEK 5,403,043.20.
  • The number of shares shall be increased by a maximum of 540,304,320.
  • For each share owned on the record day, 10 subscription rights shall be obtained and 1 subscription right entitles to 1 new share.
  • For each new share, SEK 0.20 shall be paid.

The subscription price represents a discount of approximately 24 per cent compared to the theoretical share price after the separation of subscription rights (TERP), based on the closing price of the Nordic Mines share on October 15, 2015, on Nasdaq Stockholm. Compared to the volume weighted average price the last 30 trading days of the Nordic Mines share on Nasdaq Stockholm up to and including October 15, 2015, the subscription price represents a discount of approximately 79 per cent.

The Rights issue is conditional upon (i) that the Company and the group's lenders entering into, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, the necessary agreements with respect to the receivables on the group companies under the existing finance documents and that such agreements, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, are likely to be implemented as intended and (ii) that a sufficiently high acceptance level in the Rights issue, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, may be achieved.

The proceeds from the Rights issue will, in case of full subscription, amount to just over SEK 108 million prior to transaction costs related to the Rights issue. In order for the acceptance level to be considered sufficiently high, it is, at the time of announcement of this press release, the Board of Directors view that the proceeds of the Rights issues must amount to not less than SEK 80 million prior to current transaction costs related to the Rights issue, however that the Board of Directors may take into account other financing (including debt financing) which together with the proceeds from the Rights issue amounts to not less than SEK 80 million, prior to current transaction costs related to the Rights issue.

The record date with Euroclear Sweden AB for receiving subscription rights is October 22, 2015. The subscription period will run between October 26, 2015, and November 9, 2015. The Board of Directors is however authorized to, if necessary, prolong the time for subscription.

Punkt 7 Kapitalanskaffning och därtill hörande beslut

Information med anledning av styrelsens förslag enligt denna punkt 7

Styrelsen har genom pressmeddelande publicerat måndagen den 21 september 2015 offentliggjort att styrelsen söndagen den 20 september 2015 beslutat om, under förutsättning av stämmans efterföljande godkännande, (i) en nyemission med företrädesrätt för aktieägarna och (ii) en riktad nyemission till på förhand vidtalade långsiktiga investerare, med bemyndigande för styrelsen att besluta om de slutliga villkoren för sådana nyemissioner.

Styrelsen förbehåller sig rätten att återkalla ett eller flera av de beslutade och/eller föreslagna åtgärderna enligt denna punkt 7 om, enligt styrelsens bedömning, en eller flera av dessa åtgärder skulle visa sig inte vara erforderliga. Sådant eventuellt återkallande avses att meddelas vid en tidpunkt som ligger i nära anslutning till stämman.

Åtgärderna enligt denna punkt 7 är villkorade av att Bolaget och koncernens långivare träffar, enligt styrelsens bedömning, erforderliga överenskommelser avseende samtliga fordringar på koncernbolag enligt befintligt projektfinansieringsavtal och att överenskommelserna, enligt styrelsens bedömning, kan förväntas genomföras på avsett sätt.

Respektive nyemission enligt punkterna 7 d) och e) nedan förutsätter att stämman även beslutar att justera Bolagets bolagsordning (avseende gränserna för aktiekapitalet och antal aktier), att minska Bolagets aktiekapital och om fondemission, allt i enlighet med vad som framgår nedan i denna punkt 7.

Punkt 7 a) Beslut om ändring av bolagsordningen

För att möjliggöra den av styrelsen föreslagna minskningen av Bolagets aktiekapital enligt punkt 7 b) nedan, föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om att bestämmelsen i § 4 i Bolagets bolagsordning gällande gränserna för aktiekapitalet ändras så att aktiekapitalet ska utgöra lägst 500 000 kronor respektive inte överstiga 2 000 000 kronor.

Punkt 7 b) Beslut om minskning av aktiekapital utan indragning av aktier för avsättning till fritt eget kapital

Bolagets aktiekapital uppgår per dagen för kallelsen till 244 590 214,6211 kronor fördelat på 54 030 432 aktier, envar aktie med ett kvotvärde om 4,5269 kronor.

För att underlätta de av styrelsen beslutade nyemissionerna enligt punkterna 7 d) och e) nedan, föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om minskning av Bolagets aktiekapital med 244 049 910,3011 kronor, att genomföras utan indragning av aktier, för avsättning till fritt eget kapital.

Efter minskningen kommer Bolagets aktiekapital att uppgå till
540 304,3200 kronor fördelat på sammanlagt 54 030 432 aktier (före
nyemissionerna enligt punkterna 7 d) och e) nedan), envar aktie med ett
kvotvärde om 0,01 krona.

Beslutet om minskning av aktiekapitalet enligt denna punkt 7 b) förutsätter ändring av bolagsordningen enligt punkt 7 a) ovan.

Punkt 7 c) Beslut om ändring av bolagsordningen

För att möjliggöra de av styrelsen beslutade nyemissionerna enligt punkterna 7 d) och e) nedan, föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om att bestämmelserna i §§ 4 och 5 i Bolagets bolagsordning gällande gränserna för aktiekapitalet respektive antal aktier ändras i erforderlig utsträckning.

Därvid ska de av styrelsen föreslagna nya gränserna för (i) aktiekapitalet inte kunna understiga 500 000 kronor respektive överstiga 120 000 000 kronor och (ii) antalet aktier inte kunna understiga 50 000 000 aktier respektive överstiga 12 000 000 000 aktier, varvid minimikapitalet inte får vara mindre än en fjärdedel av maximikapitalet och det lägsta antalet aktier inte får vara färre än en fjärdedel av det högsta antalet aktier.

Det fullständiga förslaget till beslut om bolagsordningsändring kommer att fastställas och offentliggöras av styrelsen i nära anslutning till stämman.

Punkt 7 d) Beslut om godkännande av nyemission med företrädesrätt för aktieägarna

Styrelsen föreslår att stämman godkänner styrelsens beslut fattat den 20 september 2015 om nyemission med företrädesrätt för aktieägarna, på i huvudsak följande villkor.

Samtliga aktieägare i Bolaget ska ha företrädesrätt att teckna de nya aktierna i förhållande till det antal aktier de äger. Avstämningsdag för fastställande av vilka aktieägare som ska ha rätt att teckna aktier med företrädesrätt (det vill säga att erhålla teckningsrätter) ska vara den 22 oktober 2015.

Teckning av nya aktier med stöd av teckningsrätter ska ske genom kontant betalning eller teckning på särskild teckningslista under tiden från och med den 26 oktober 2015, eller sådant senare datum som infaller tre bankdagar efter att emissionsprospektet har godkänts och registrerats av Finansinspektionen, och under en period om två veckor därefter. Styrelsen ska bemyndigas att om så erfordras förlänga teckningstiden. Teckning av aktier utan stöd av teckningsrätter ska ske under samma tid. Teckning av nya aktier enligt eventuella åtagande om så kallad underwriting eller teckningsgaranti ska dock kunna ske senast fjärde bankdagen efter teckningstidens utgång. Teckning ska i sådana fall ske på särskild teckningslista. Betalning för aktier som tecknas utan stöd av teckningsrätter eller som tecknas med stöd av teckningsrätter på särskild teckningslista ska erläggas kontant i enlighet med instruktioner på avräkningsnota, dock senast tredje bankdagen efter utfärdandet av avräkningsnotan. De nya aktierna ska medföra rätt till utdelning första gången på den avstämningsdag för utdelning som inträffar närmast efter det att aktierna registrerats hos Bolagsverket. Eventuell överkurs ska avsättas till överkursfonden.

Styrelsen (eller den som styrelsen utser inom sig) bemyndigas att, senast den dag som infaller fem vardagar före avstämningsdagen, fastställa det belopp, högsta belopp eller det lägsta och högsta belopp med vilket Bolagets aktiekapital ska ökas, det antal aktier, högsta antal aktier eller det lägsta och högsta antal aktier som ska ges ut och vilket belopp som ska betalas för varje ny aktie.

Beslutet om nyemission av aktier enligt denna punkt 7 d) förutsätter ändring av bolagsordningen enligt punkt 7 c) ovan.

Företrädesemissionen är villkorad av att en tillräcklig anslutningsgrad i företrädesemissionen (med beaktande även av den riktade nyemission som behandlas i punkt 7 e) nedan) enligt styrelsens bedömning kan uppnås. Företrädesemissionen enligt denna punkt 7 d) kan sålunda komma att återkallas.

Punkt 7 e) Beslut om godkännande av riktad nyemission

Styrelsen föreslår att stämman godkänner styrelsens beslut fattat den 20 september 2015 om nyemission riktad till, med avvikelse från aktieägarnas företrädesrätt, en eller flera på förhand vidtalade investerare som bedöms som långsiktiga, på i huvudsak följande villkor.

Teckning av nya aktier ska ske genom kontant betalning eller teckning på särskild teckningslista under tiden från och med den 26 oktober 2015. Betalning för aktier som tecknas på särskild teckningslista ska erläggas kontant i enlighet med instruktioner på avräkningsnota, dock senast tredje bankdagen efter utfärdandet av avräkningsnotan. De nya aktierna ska medföra rätt till utdelning första gången på den avstämningsdag för utdelning som inträffar närmast efter det att aktierna registrerats hos Bolagsverket. Eventuell överkurs ska avsättas till överkursfonden.

Styrelsen (eller den som styrelsen utser inom sig) bemyndigas att, innan teckningstiden börjar, fastställa det belopp, högsta belopp eller det lägsta och högsta belopp med vilket Bolagets aktiekapital ska ökas, det antal aktier, högsta antal aktier eller det lägsta och högsta antal aktier som ska ges ut och vilket belopp som ska betalas för varje ny aktie.

Skälet till avvikelsen från aktieägarnas företrädesrätt är att styrelsen, efter sonderingar med befintliga aktieägare och potentiella nya investerare, bedömt att anskaffning av nytt kapital kraftigt underlättas om en del eller hela kapitalanskaffningen sker genom en riktad nyemission. Med hänsyn härtill har en riktad nyemission ansetts vara till fördel för Bolaget och dess aktieägare.

Beslutet om nyemission av aktier enligt denna punkt 7 e) förutsätter ändring av bolagsordningen enligt punkt 7 c) ovan.

Punkt 7 f) Beslut om ändring av bolagsordningen

För att möjliggöra den fondemission som föreslås i punkt 7 g) nedan, föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om att bestämmelserna i 4 § i Bolagets bolagsordning gällande gränserna för aktiekapitalet ändras så att aktiekapitalet ska utgöra lägst 200 000 000 kronor respektive inte överstiga 800 000 000 kronor.

Punkt 7 g) Beslut om fondemission utan utgivande av nya aktier

För att undvika att behöva Bolagsverkets eller allmän domstols tillstånd för att verkställa den av styrelsen under punkt 7 b) ovan föreslagna minskningen av Bolagets aktiekapital, föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om att öka Bolagets aktiekapital genom att 244 049 910,3011 kronor överförs från Bolagets fria egna kapital. Fondemissionen ska ske utan utgivande av nya aktier.

Beslutet om fondemission enligt denna punkt 7 g) förutsätter ändring av bolagsordningen enligt punkt 7 f) ovan.

Emission ska kunna ske upp till det högsta antal aktier som tillåts enligt vid var tid gällande bolagsordning. Emission ska kunna ske med eller utan föreskrift om apport, kvittning eller andra villkor. Skälet till att styrelsen ska kunna fatta beslut om emission av aktier, teckningsoptioner och/eller konvertibler med avvikelse från aktieägarnas företrädesrätt och/eller med bestämmelse om apport- och kvittningsemission eller annars med villkor enligt ovan är att Bolaget ska ha flexibilitet att kunna anskaffa nödvändigt ytterligare kapital.

F.      Övrigt, majoritetskrav

Styrelsen föreslår att bolagsstämmans beslut i enlighet med punkterna 7 a) - g) ovan ska antas som ett beslut. Beslut enligt punkterna 7 och 8 ovan fordrar bifall av aktieägare representerande minst två tredjedelar av såväl de avgivna rösterna som de vid stämman företrädda aktierna.

G.     Frågor till styrelsen och den verkställande direktören

Aktieägare har möjlighet att begära upplysningar om förhållanden som kan inverka på bedömningen av ett ärende på dagordningen.

Kallelse till extra bolagsstämma i Nordic Mines AB (publ)

2015-09-21 Nordic Mines has reached an agreement in principle with the Company's lenders regarding the repurchase of outstanding debt

The English text is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original, and in the event of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation the Swedish text shall take precedence. This is not a legal document.

PRESS RELEASE 21 September 2015

Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or "the Company") has reached an agreement in principle with the Company's lenders that Nordic Mines will buy all of the lenders' claims on Group companies in accordance with the existing project financing agreement. Nordic Mines intends to finance the purchase through one or more new share issues. Under the agreement in principle:

  • The Company buys all of the lenders' claims on Group companies in accordance with the existing project financing agreement at a consideration of around EUR 5 million, which corresponds to a new write-down of around EUR 10 million. The original debt was EUR 45 million.
  • The agreement also includes outstanding warrants held by the lenders corresponding to an ownership of 12%.
  • Nordic Mines regains through this purchase full control over the assets that are pledged in accordance with the project financing agreement.

The purchase will be financed through new share issues that will inject around SEK 110 million into the Company at full subscription, but as a minimum around SEK 80 million. The plan is to use the funds raised by the share issues for:

  • The equivalent of EUR 5 million for the purchase of all of the lenders' claims on Group companies.
  • Around EUR 3 million to finance the Company for the next 12 months while waiting for more beneficial external factors in the form of primarily the gold price and currency rates.
  • Excess funds raised from the share issues will provide the Company with enhanced financial longevity and the ability to carry out value-enhancing activities, primarily at the Laiva mine.

The agreement in principle with the Company's lenders is conditional on the final agreement documentation, that formal internal decisions regarding the approval of the agreement are made by each bank and that the Company raises funds for the consideration through upcoming share issues. Given these developments, the Board of Directors of Nordic Mines has decided to summon an extraordinary general meeting to decide on conditional share issues in the form of a rights issue and/or a directed new share issue for the general meeting's approval (for more information, please refer to point 7 in today's notice to the Annual General Meeting). The Company will provide information about conditions, volume and transactional structure prior to the extraordinary general meeting of Nordic Mines on 21 October 2015.

Nordic Mines has engaged Evli Bank and PWC Corporate Finance Debt & Capital Advisory as financial advisors.

The English text is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original, and in the event of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation the Swedish text shall take precedence.

PRESS RELEASE 31 August 2015

The Annual General Meeting for Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or "the Company") resolved on 30 June 2015 to reduce the Company's share capital to cover losses and to carry out a reorganisation of its shares via a reverse split on a 1-for-100 basis, which means that 100 shares will be consolidated to a single share. Since the measures were approved by its lenders, the Company will now implement the AGM's resolution.

Directed share issue
In order to achieve an evenly distributable number of shares in the Company and thus facilitate a consolidation of the Company's shares, the AGM granted the Company's Board of Directors the authorisation to decide on a directed issue of shares in the Company. Pursuant to this authorisation from the AGM, the Board decided on a directed issue of four shares to Evli Corporate Finance AB. The new shares were issued at a subscription price up to the existing shares' quota value (in total SEK 0.1811).

The total number of outstanding shares in Nordic Mines after the directed issue is 5,403,043,200.

Consolidation of shares (1:100)
The resolution by the AGM on the consolidation of the Nordic Mines share entails that 100 existing shares will be consolidated into one new share. Pursuant to the authorisation granted by the AGM, the Board has determined that the record date for the consolidation will be 16 September 2015.

The final day to trade Nordic Mines shares on NASDAQ Stockholm before the consolidation is 14 September 2015. The first day to trade Nordic Mines shares after the consolidation is 15 September 2015, which means that the price of the share as of 14 September 2015 will reflect the effect of the consolidation. Please note that as of this date the share will be traded under a new ISIN code, SE0007491105.

The consolidation will reduce the total number of shares in Nordic Mines from 5,403,043,200 to 54,030,432. The quota value for the Company's shares after the consolidation will be SEK 4.5269 per share. The Company's share capital will not be affected by the consolidation.

For shareholders who do not own a number of shares that corresponds to a whole number of new shares on the record date, the excess number of shares will be taken over by Nordic Mines and sold. The proceeds from the sale of the excess shares will be paid to entitled shareholders around 21 September 2015.

Schedule for the consolidation of shares

14 September 2015 Last day for trade before the consolidation
15 September 2015 First day for trade following the consolidation New ISIN code SE0007491105
16 September 2015 Record date for the consolidation

Reduction in share capital to cover losses
The AGM also resolved to reduce the Company's share capital by SEK 147,245,000 to cover losses without withdrawing shares. Since the reduction in share capital was registered by the Swedish Companies Registration Office on 20 August 2015, the Company's share capital is SEK 244,590,214.44.

PRESS RELEASE 13 August 2015

Changes at the Laiva Mine
With the aim of obtaining even more flexibility before a future re-start of operations at the Laiva mine and for realising additional cost savings in the short term, Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines", "the Company" or "the Group") is now implementing a number of measures:

  • Agreement in principle with Ab Tallqvist Infra Oy, a local mining contracting firm, to operate the Laiva mine in the future
  • Nordic Mines Oy will be extending an invitation for codetermination negotiations with the goal of realising additional cost savings in the near future at the Laiva mine
  • Current General Manager Tom Söderman at his own request has decided to leave his post at the end of 2015

The agreement in principle with Ab Tallqvist Infra Oy entails that the local mining contractor will become a strategic partner of Nordic Mines and take significantly more responsibility for the operation of the Laiva mine than it did before. This also provides Nordic Mines with more flexibility regarding the restart of operations at the Laiva mine, primarily in terms of staffing. The Finnish subsidiary, Nordic Mines Oy, will invite employee representatives to codetermination negotiations in accordance with Finnish law. The aim of these negotiations is realise additional cost savings in the near future and thus extend the time available to find a financing solution for the Company and the Laiva mine. Current General Manager Tom Söderman at his own request has also decided to leave his post at the end of 2015

Strategy and financing for Nordic Mines and the Laiva mine
The Company's lenders have expressed to the Company that they believe that the Group is in violation of the current project financing agreement on a number of points and has submitted a request to the Company on 10 August 2015 for a clarification regarding the Company's financing.

Communiqué from Nordic Mines' Annual General Meeting 2015

2015-06-25 Nordic Mines holds start of production at Laiva mine and withdraws proposed share issue

The English text is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original, and in the event of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation the Swedish text shall take precedence. This is not a legal document.

PRESS RELEASE 25 June 2015

As previously communicated, Nordic Mines AB (publ) (Nordic Mines or the Company) has been working to secure an optimal financing solution to restart operations at the Laiva mine at a point in time when external factors in particular, such as the price of gold and the exchange rate, create conditions for profitable mining.

SRK Consulting UK Ltd (SRK), as communicated previously, collaborated with Nordic Mines during the winter of 2014 and 2015 to develop a business plan for the restart of the operations at the Laiva mine. The business plan is based on the mineral reserve as of 1 January 2015, as calculated by SRK, totalling 9.4 million tonnes with a head grade of 1.2 g/t. In conjunction with preparations to restart its mining operations, Nordic Mines prepared a detailed mining plan for the first 18 weeks on the basis of additional drill hole data. Negative deviations in the detailed mining plan resulted in further review of the mineral reserve in its entirety. The determination has now been made that a higher gold price than what was used in previous assumptions is required to ensure sufficient profitability for the restart of the Laiva mine. The review of the mineral reserve also indicates that a small drilling programme is recommended to optimise the planning for the mining. The Board of Directors has therefore decided to hold off on the start of production at the Laiva mine.

The Company is also continuing to work on the preparation of a financing solution which given the right conditions would make it possible to restart operations at the Laiva mine with sufficient profitability. Such a solution could consist of, individually or in combination, the pre-sale of gold production and gold deliveries, the renegotiation of supplier terms, other types of bridge financing for working capital, share issues or collaborations with strategic or financial partners. The Company is therefore holding discussions with its lenders. If Nordic Mines is in significant breach of its project financing agreement, the bank consortium is entitled to apply for a default of the Finnish composition plan.

In the notice to attend the Company's AGM in Uppsala on 30 June 2015, which has already been published, the Board attempted to create some room for negotiation in its continued work to secure an optimal financing solution for the Company. The notice therefore included a proposal for a resolution on a rights issue and a directed share issue (and related actions, such as changes to the Articles of Association and a decrease in the share capital). Since the Board has now decided to hold off on the start of production at the Laiva mine, the Company currently will not seek additional capital from its shareholders or external investors via the share issues proposed in the notice to attend the AGM. The Board has therefore decided to withdraw the matter under point 15 of the proposed agenda (i.e. the share issue proposals and related actions).

Nordic Mines has engaged Evli Bank and PWC Corporate Finance Debt & Capital Advisory as financial advisors.

Punkt 8 b); Beslut om dispositioner beträffande Bolagets förlust enligt den fastställda balansräkningen

Styrelsen föreslår att ingen utdelning lämnas för 2014 samt att den ansamlade förlusten disponeras så att i ny räkning överförs 147 245 000 kronor.

Punkt 9; Beslut om antalet styrelseledamöter som ska väljas av stämman

Valberedningen föreslår att antalet styrelseledamöter som ska utses av stämman ska vara fem utan suppleanter. Antalet revisorer och revisorssuppleanter ska vara en revisor utan suppleanter.

Punkt 10; Fastställande av arvoden åt styrelseledamöter och revisor

Valberedningen föreslår att det sammanlagda styrelsearvodet för tiden intill nästa årsstämma, beräknat på årsbasis och inklusive kommittéarbete, ska uppgå till 1 150 000 kronor, fördelat enligt följande:

  3. 200 000 kronor till var och en av övriga styrelseledamöter.

Valberedningen föreslår att arvode till revisor ska utgå enligt godkänd räkning.

Valberedningen föreslår vidare att styrelsearvode, efter särskild överenskommelse mellan styrelseledamot och Nordic Mines AB (publ) och förutsatt att det är kostnadsneutralt för Nordic Mines AB (publ) samt att styrelseledamoten uppfyller de formella krav som ställs för sådan fakturering, faktureras genom ett av styrelseledamot helägt svenskt bolag.

Punkt 12; Beslut om valberedning

Valberedningen föreslår följande vad gäller valberedning inför nästa årsstämma.

Valbredningen ska inför årsstämman 2016 arbeta fram förslag till beslut vad avser ordförande vid stämman, antal styrelseledamöter som ska väljas av stämman, val av ordförande och övriga ledamöter i styrelsen samt av revisor, arvode till styrelsen och revisorn, eventuell ersättning för utskottsarbete samt principer för utseende av valberedning.

Valberedningen ska bestå av fyra ledamöter vilka ska utses enligt följande. Envar av Bolagets två största aktieägare per den 30 september 2015, ska äga rätt att utse en representant var, varav högst en får vara en styrelseledamot som är beroende i förhållande till Bolagets större aktieägare. Om båda nämnda ägare önskar utse en representant som är styrelseledamot och beroende i förhållande till Bolagets större aktieägare ska ägaren med störst innehav ges företräde. Om någon av de två största aktieägarna skulle avstå från sin rätt att utse en representant i valberedningen enligt ovan, ska rätten övergå till den aktieägare som, efter dessa aktieägare, har det största aktieägande i Bolaget. När ovan nämnda representanter har utsetts ska dessa tillsammans utse ytterligare två personer att ingå i valberedningen, varav minst en ska representera de mindre aktieägarna. Nämnda personer ska utses med beaktande av att en majoritet av valberedningens ledamöter inte ska utgöras av personer som även är ledamöter i Bolagets styrelse. Om valberedningen inte kan enas om annat ska den ledamot som representerar den största aktieägaren vara ordförande i valberedningen, förutsatt att denne inte är ordförande eller annan ledamot även i Bolagets styrelse, varvid istället representanten för nästkommande ägare i storleksordning, som inte är ordförande eller annan ledamot i Bolagets styrelse, ska vara ordförande. 

Valberedningens sammansättning ska offentliggöras så snart den utsetts och senast sex månader före årsstämman 2016. Om ledamot representerar viss ägare ska ägarens namn anges. Har de relevanta ägarförhållandena ändrats per utgången av det fjärde kvartalet 2015, ska valberedningens sammansättning, om möjligt och om så anses erforderligt av den sittande valberedningen, anpassas till de nya ägarförhållandena. Valberedningen kvarstår till dess ny valberedning utsetts. Lämnar ledamot valberedningen innan dess arbete är slutfört ska, om så bedöms erforderligt av den sittande valberedningen, ersättare utses av samma aktieägare som utsett den avgående ledamoten eller, om denna aktieägare inte längre tillhör de två största aktieägarna, av den nya aktieägare som tillhör denna grupp.

Till ledamot i valberedningen som inte uppbär annat arvode från Bolaget ska utgå ett arvode som uppgår till 25 000 kronor för valberedningens ordförande och till 15 000 kronor för envar övriga ledamöter. Eventuella omkostnader som uppstår i nomineringsprocessen ska bäras av Bolaget.

Punkt 13 Beslut om riktlinjer för ledande befattningshavare

Styrelsen har utarbetat förslag till riktlinjer för bestämmande av ersättnings- och andra anställningsvillkor för ledande befattningshavare. Dessa utgörs av VD och andra ledande befattningshavare i Bolaget och dess dotterbolag. Styrelsen föreslår att stämman fastställer följande riktlinjer för bestämmande av ersättning och övriga anställningsvillkor till ledande befattningshavare i Bolaget.
Principerna gäller för anställningsavtal som ingås efter stämmans beslut samt för det fall ändringar görs i existerande villkor efter denna tidpunkt. Styrelsens förslag baseras på att Bolagets ersättningsnivå och ersättningsstruktur för ledande befattningshavare ska vara marknadsmässig.

Fast lön
Den fasta lönen ska vara individuell och baserad på varje individs ansvar och roll såväl som individens kompetens och erfarenhet i relevant befattning.

Rörlig lön
Den rörliga lönen för ledande befattningshavare inom Bolaget ska vara strukturerad som en variabel komponent av det totala kontanta ersättningspaketet och kriterierna för den rörliga lönen ska vara relaterade till uppfyllandet av uppställda mål. Syftet med de rörliga ersättningarna är att främja Bolagets långsiktiga värdeskapande. Kriterierna för denna rörliga kompensation ska revideras årligen av styrelsen för att säkerställa att målen står i linje med gällande affärsstrategier. Den andel av den totala ersättningen som utgörs av rörlig lön varierar beroende på befattning och ska kunna utgöra högst 50 procent av den fasta lönen vid full måluppfyllelse och vara kontant baserad. Planen ska också innehålla en lägsta prestationsnivå i förhållande till mål, under vilken ingen bonus erhålles. Mot bakgrund av att kriterierna för den rörliga ersättningen är tydliga, transparenta och målbaserade samt att kriterierna revideras årligen bedömer styrelsen att det inte finns anledning att införa några särskilda förbehåll som villkorar utbetalning av viss del av sådan ersättning av att de prestationer på vilka intjänandet grundats visar sig vara hållbara över tid, eller som ger Bolaget möjlighet att återkräva sådana ersättningar som utbetalats på grundval av uppgifter som senare visat sig vara uppenbart felaktiga.

Övriga förmåner
Övriga förmåner, såsom företagsbil, ersättning för sjukvårdsförsäkring etc., ska vara av begränsat värde i förhållande till övrig kompensation och överensstämma med vad som marknadsmässigt är brukligt. Utöver detta kan deltagande i långsiktiga incitamentsprogram, t.ex. bestående av teckningsoptioner, eller andel i personalfond eller vinstandelsstiftelse, erbjudas som ett komplement, i förekommande och tillämpliga fall baserat på beslut och riktlinjer av bolagsstämma.

Pension
VD och övriga ledande befattningshavare har rätt till pensionsförmåner på marknadsmässiga villkor, varvid pensionsgrundande lön utgörs av fast lön. Pensionsavsättningar får göras med upp till 35 procent av fast månadslön och, när det gäller VD, avgångsvederlag.

Uppsägningstid och avgångsvederlag
För VD och övriga ledande befattningshavare ska gälla en uppsägningstid om upp till sex månader vid uppsägning från befattningshavarens sida och upp till tolv månader vid uppsägning från Bolagets sida. Bolagets CFO är anlitad som konsult och omfattas därmed inte av uppsägningstiden angiven i föregående mening. Vid uppsägning kan ledande befattningshavare ha rätt till ett avgångsvederlag motsvarande upp till tolv månadslöner. Anställningsvillkoren i övrigt ska vara marknadsmässiga.

Ersättningsutskott
Ett inom styrelsen utsett ersättningsutskott ska bereda frågor om lön och övriga anställningsvillkor för VD och ledande befattningshavare samt förelägga styrelsen förslag till beslut i sådana frågor.

Avvikelse i enskilt fall
Styrelsen ska ha rätt att frångå dessa riktlinjer om det i ett enskilt fall finns särskilda skäl för det. Om sådan avvikelse sker ska information om detta och skälet till avvikelsen redovisas vid närmast följande årsstämma. Samtliga tidigare beslutade, men ännu inte utbetalda ersättningar till ledande befattningshavare överensstämmer med de ovan föreslagna riktlinjerna.

Punkt 14 Minskning av aktiekapitalet för förlusttäckning

Åtgärderna under denna punkt 14 ska anses som ett förslag och ska därför antas som en helhet av stämman genom ett beslut. Åtgärderna är vidare villkorade av att Bolaget och Bolagets långivare träffar de erforderliga överenskommelser, på sådana enligt styrelsens rimliga bedömning skäliga villkor, som krävs för att kunna genomföra respektive åtgärd på ett för Bolagets aktieägare fördelaktigt sätt.

Punkt 14 a) Beslut om ändring av bolagsordningen

För att möjliggöra den av styrelsen föreslagna minskningen av Bolagets aktiekapital enligt punkt 14 b) nedan, föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om att bestämmelsen i § 4 i bolagsordningen gällande gränserna för aktiekapitalet ändras så att aktiekapitalet ska utgöra lägst 150 000 000 kronor respektive inte överstiga 600 000 000 kronor.

Punkt 14 b) Beslut om minskning av aktiekapitalet utan indragning av aktier för täckning av förlust

Styrelsen föreslår att stämman beslutar om minskning av Bolagets aktiekapital med 147 245 000 kronor, att genomföras utan indragning av aktier, för täckning av förlust.

Beslutet om minskning av aktiekapitalet enligt denna punkt 14 b) förutsätter ändring av bolagsordningen enligt punkt 14 a) ovan.
Efter aktiekapitalminskningen enligt denna punkt 14 b) kommer Bolagets aktiekapital att uppgå till 244 590 214,440 kronor fördelat på sammanlagt 5 403 043 196 aktier, envar aktie med ett kvotvärde om cirka 0,0453 kronor.

Beslut om kapitalanskaffning och därmed tillhörande beslut (punkt 15)

Information med anledning av styrelsens förslag enligt denna punkt 15

Genom pressmeddelande publicerat fredagen den 29 maj 2015 har styrelsen offentliggjort att Bolagets mål är att återuppta Laivagruvan i drift vid en tidpunkt där externa faktorer, i form av bland annat guldpris och valutakurser, ger förutsättning för en lönsam gruvdrift. Vidare framgick att Bolaget arbetar för att finna en finansieringslösning vilken kan bestå enskilt eller i en kombination av exempelvis förförsäljning av guldproduktion och guldleveranser, omförhandling av leverantörsvillkor, andra sorters bryggfinansiering av rörelsekapital, nyemission eller samarbeten med strategiska eller finansiella partners.

I syfte att skapa handlingsutrymme i styrelsens fortsatta arbete med att få fram en optimal finansieringslösning föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om dels en nyemission med företrädesrätt för aktieägarna, dels en riktad nyemission till på förhand vidtalade långsiktiga investerare.

Styrelsen föreslås bemyndigas att fastställa de slutliga emissionsvillkoren vid en senare tidpunkt. Vidare kommer styrelsen att fastställa och offentliggöra slutliga förslag avseende några av de erforderliga bolagsordningsändringarna vid en tidpunkt som ligger i nära anslutning till årsstämman.

Nyemissionerna förutsätter att stämman även beslutar om minskningar av aktiekapitalet, justeringar av Bolagets bolagsordning (avseende gränserna för aktiekapitalet och antal aktier) samt fondemission i enlighet med vad som framgår av punkt 14 ovan samt av denna punkt 15.

Åtgärderna under denna punkt 15 är villkorade av att Bolaget och Bolagets långivare träffar de erforderliga överenskommelser, på sådana enligt styrelsens rimliga bedömning skäliga villkor, som krävs för att kunna genomföra respektive åtgärd på ett för Bolagets aktieägare fördelaktigt sätt. Åtgärderna är vidare villkorade av att den föreslagna företrädesemissionen (punkt 15 d)) och/eller den föreslagna riktade nyemissionen (punkt 15 e)) genomförs.

Styrelsen förbehåller sig vidare rätten att återkalla ett eller flera av de beslutade och/eller föreslagna åtgärderna enligt denna punkt 15 om det skulle visa sig, enligt styrelsens bedömning, att en eller flera av dessa åtgärder inte är erforderliga. Sådant eventuellt återkallande avses att meddelas vid en tidpunkt som ligger i nära anslutning till årsstämman.

Punkt 15 a) Beslut om ändring av bolagsordningen

För att möjliggöra den av styrelsen föreslagna minskningen av Bolagets aktiekapital enligt punkt 15 b) nedan, föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om att bestämmelsen i § 4 i bolagsordningen gällande gränserna för aktiekapitalet ändras så att aktiekapitalet ska utgöra lägst 20 000 000 kronor respektive inte överstiga 80 000 000 kronor.

Punkt 15 b) Beslut om minskning av aktiekapital utan indragning av aktier för avsättning till fritt eget kapital

För att underlätta styrelsens förslag om nyemissioner enligt punkterna 15 d) och e) nedan, föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om minskning av Bolagets aktiekapital med 217 574 998,460 kronor, att genomföras utan indragning av aktier, för avsättning till fritt eget kapital att användas enligt beslut av stämman.

Beslutet om minskning av aktiekapitalet enligt denna punkt 15 b) förutsätter ändring av bolagsordningen enligt punkt 15 a) ovan.

Efter aktiekapitalminskningen enligt denna punkt 15 b) kommer Bolagets aktiekapital att uppgå till 27 015 215,980 kronor fördelat på sammanlagt 5 403 043 196 aktier, envar aktie med ett kvotvärde om 0,005 kronor.

Punkt 15 c) Beslut om ändring av bolagsordningen

För att möjliggöra de av styrelsen föreslagna nyemissionerna i punkterna 15 d) och e) nedan, föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om att bestämmelserna i §§ 4 och 5 i Bolagets bolagsordning gällande gränserna för aktiekapitalet respektive antal aktier ändras i erforderlig utsträckning.

Därvid ska de av styrelsen föreslagna nya gränserna för (i) aktiekapitalet inte kunna understiga 30 000 000 kronor respektive överstiga 360 000 000 kronor och (ii) antalet aktier inte kunna understiga 5 000 000 000 aktier respektive överstiga 60 000 000 000 aktier, varvid minimikapitalet inte får vara mindre än en fjärdedel av maximikapitalet och det lägsta antalet aktier inte får vara färre än en fjärdedel av det högsta antalet aktier.

Det fullständiga förslaget till beslut om bolagsordningsändring kommer att fastställas och offentliggöras av styrelsen i nära anslutning till årsstämman.

Punkt 15 d) Beslut om nyemission med företrädesrätt för aktieägarna

Styrelsen föreslår att stämman beslutar om nyemission med företrädesrätt för aktieägarna, på i huvudsak följande villkor.

Samtliga aktieägare i Bolaget ska ha företrädesrätt att teckna de nya aktierna i förhållande till det antal aktier de äger. Avstämningsdag för fastställande av vilka aktieägare som ska ha rätt att teckna aktier med företrädesrätt (det vill säga att erhålla teckningsrätter) ska vara den 7 juli 2015.

Teckning av nya aktier med stöd av teckningsrätter ska ske genom kontant betalning eller teckning på särskild teckningslista under tiden från och med den 9 juli 2015, eller sådant senare datum som infaller tre bankdagar efter att emissionsprospektet har godkänts och registrerats av Finansinspektionen, och under en period om två veckor därefter eller sådan längre period som styrelsen beslutar. Anmälan om teckning av aktier utan stöd av teckningsrätter ska ske under samma tid. Teckning av nya aktier enligt eventuella åtagande om så kallad underwriting eller teckningsgaranti ska dock kunna ske senast fjärde bankdagen efter teckningstidens utgång. Teckning ska i sådana fall ske på särskild teckningslista. Betalning för aktier som tecknas utan stöd av teckningsrätter ska erläggas kontant i enlighet med instruktioner på avräkningsnota, dock senast tredje bankdagen efter utfärdandet av avräkningsnotan. De nya aktierna ska medföra rätt till utdelning första gången på den avstämningsdag för utdelning som inträffar närmast efter det att aktierna registrerats hos Bolagsverket. Eventuell överkurs ska avsättas till överkursfonden.

Styrelsen (eller den som styrelsen utser inom sig) ska bemyndigas att, senast den dag som infaller fem vardagar före avstämningsdagen, fastställa det belopp med vilket Bolagets aktiekapital ska ökas, det antal aktier som ska ges ut och vilket belopp som ska betalas för varje ny aktie.

Beslutet om nyemission av aktier enligt denna punkt 15 d) förutsätter ändring av bolagsordningen enligt punkt 15 c) ovan.

Företrädesemissionen är utöver villkoret angivet ovan avseende att Bolaget och Bolagets långivare träffar, på enligt styrelsens rimliga bedömning skäliga villkor, erforderliga överenskommelser även villkorad av att en tillräcklig anslutningsgrad i företrädesemissionen enligt styrelsens rimliga bedömning kan uppnås för att kunna genomföra den föreslagna kapitalanskaffningen. Företrädesemissionen enligt denna punkt 15 d) kan sålunda helt eller delvis återkallas.

Punkt 15 e) Beslut om riktad nyemission

Styrelsen föreslår att stämman beslutar om nyemission riktad till en eller flera på förhand vidtalade investerare som bedöms som långsiktiga, på i huvudsak följande villkor.

Teckning av nya aktier ska ske genom kontant betalning eller teckning på särskild teckningslista under tiden från och med den 9 juli 2015, eller sådant senare datum som infaller tre bankdagar efter att emissionsprospektet har godkänts och registrerats av Finansinspektionen, och under en period om två veckor därefter eller sådan längre period som styrelsen beslutar. De nya aktierna ska medföra rätt till utdelning första gången på den avstämningsdag för utdelning som inträffar närmast efter det att aktierna registrerats hos Bolagsverket. Eventuell överkurs ska avsättas till överkursfonden.

Styrelsen (eller den som styrelsen utser inom sig) ska bemyndigas att innan teckningstiden börjar fastställa det belopp med vilket Bolagets aktiekapital ska ökas, det antal aktier som ska ges ut och vilket belopp som ska betalas för varje ny aktie.

Skälet till avvikelsen från aktieägarnas företrädesrätt är att styrelsen, efter sonderingar med befintliga aktieägare och potentiella nya investerare, bedömt att anskaffning av nytt kapital kraftigt underlättas om kapitalanskaffning sker genom en riktad nyemission. Med hänsyn härtill har en riktad nyemission ansetts vara till fördel för Bolaget och dess aktieägare.

Beslutet om nyemission av aktier enligt denna punkt 15 e) förutsätter ändring av bolagsordningen enligt punkt 15 c) ovan.

Punkt 15 f) Beslut om ändring av bolagsordningen

För att möjliggöra den fondemission som föreslås godkännas i punkt 15 g) nedan, föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om att bestämmelserna i 4 § i bolagsordningen gällande gränserna för aktiekapitalet ändras så att aktiekapitalet ska utgöra lägst 200 000 000 kronor respektive överstiga 800 000 000 kronor.

Punkt 15 g) Beslut om fondemission utan utgivande av nya aktier

För att undvika att behöva Bolagsverkets eller allmän domstols tillstånd för att verkställa den av styrelsen under punkt 15 d) ovan föreslagna minskningen av Bolagets aktiekapital, föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om att öka Bolagets aktiekapital genom att 217 574 998,460 kronor överförs från Bolagets fria egna kapital. Fondemissionen ska ske utan utgivande av nya aktier.

Beslutet om fondemission enligt denna punkt 15 g) förutsätter ändring av bolagsordningen enligt punkt 15 f) ovan.

Beslut om sammanläggning av aktier (omvänd split) (punkt 16)

Styrelsen föreslår i syfte att uppnå ett ändamålsenligt antal aktier och kvotvärde i Bolaget att en sammanläggning av Bolagets aktier genomförs på de villkor som framgår nedan.

Åtgärderna under denna punkt 16 ska anses som ett förslag och ska därför (med förbehåll för att vissa ärenden kan komma att återkallas) antas som en helhet av stämman genom ett beslut. Åtgärderna är vidare villkorade av att Bolaget och Bolagets långivare träffar de erforderliga överenskommelser, på sådana enligt styrelsens rimliga bedömning skäliga villkor, som krävs för att kunna genomföra respektive åtgärd på ett för Bolagets aktieägare fördelaktigt sätt.

Punkt 16 a) Beslut om ändring av bolagsordningen

För att möjliggöra den av styrelsen föreslagna sammanläggningen av aktier enligt punkten 16 b) nedan, föreslår styrelsen att stämman beslutar om att bestämmelsen i § 5 i bolagsordningen gällande antalet aktier ändras i erforderlig utsträckning.

Därvid ska de av styrelsen föreslagna nya gränserna för antalet aktier inte kunna understiga 30 000 000 aktier respektive överstiga 600 000 000 aktier, varvid det lägsta antalet aktier inte får vara färre än en fjärdedel av det högsta antalet aktier.

Det fullständiga förslaget till beslut om bolagsordningsändring kommer att fastställas och offentliggöras av styrelsen i nära anslutning till årsstämman.

Punkt 16 b) Beslut om bemyndigande för styrelsen att besluta om nyemission

Styrelsen föreslår att stämman bemyndigar styrelsen att, vid ett tillfälle under tiden fram till nästa årsstämma, med avvikelse från befintliga aktieägares företrädesrätt, besluta om nyemission av ett sådant antal aktier som krävs för att åstadkomma ett jämnt antal aktier efter genomförande av sammanläggningen av aktier i enlighet med förslaget i denna punkt 16 (dock alltid inom vid var tid gällande bolagsordning). Aktierna ska av administrativa skäl endast kunna tecknas av Evli Bank.

Punkt 16 c) Beslut om sammanläggning (omvänd split) av aktier

Styrelsen föreslår att bolagsstämman beslutar om sammanläggning av Bolagets aktier 1:100, innebärande att 100 aktier läggs samman till en aktie. Styrelsen (eller den som styrelsen utser inom sig) ska bemyndigas att bestämma avstämningsdag för sammanläggningen, vilken dock inte får infalla före den tidpunkt då beslutet om sammanläggningen registrerats hos Bolagsverket. Styrelsen avser att bestämma avstämningsdagen till ett datum som infaller efter att de åtgärder som föreslås under punkt 15 ovan har registrerats hos Bolagsverket.

För de aktieägare som på avstämningsdagen för sammanläggningen inte innehar ett antal aktier som motsvarar ett helt antal nya aktier (efter genomförd sammanläggning), kommer överskjutande aktier att övergå i Bolagets ägo på avstämningsdagen för sammanläggningen. Överskjutande stamaktier kommer därefter att försäljas av ett av Bolaget utsett värdepappersinstitut, varvid berättigade aktieägare kommer att erhålla sin andel av försäljningslikviden.

Beslutet om om sammanläggning av Bolagets aktier enligt denna punkt 16 c) förutsätter ändring av bolagsordningen enligt punkt 16 a) ovan.

Punkt 17 Beslut om ändring av bolagsordningen

Styrelsen föreslår att stämman beslutar om att (i) att bestämmelsen i § 2 i bolagsordningen gällande styrelsens säte ändras så att styrelsen ska ha sitt säte i Stockholms kommun och (ii) att i § 8 i bolagsordningen den mening som lyder "- Bolagsstämma skall hållas i Uppsala" stryks.

G.     Övrigt, majoritetskrav

Besluten enligt punkterna 14, 15, 16 och 17 ovan fordrar bifall av aktieägare representerande minst två tredjedelar av såväl de avgivna rösterna som de vid stämman företrädda aktierna.

H.     Frågor till styrelsen och den verkställande direktören

Notice of Annual General Meeting 2015 (Swedish only)

2015-05-29 Business plan for the Laiva mine and continued efforts to secure funding

The English text is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original, and in the event of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation the Swedish text shall take precedence. This is not a legal document.

PRESS RELEASE 29 May 2015

As previously communicated, Nordic Mines finalised a business plan during the beginning of the year for the restart of operations at the Laiva mine. As part of this business plan, a five-year mining plan was prepared in collaboration with SRK Consulting UK Ltd (SRK) that was based on the Company's mineral reserve as of 1 January 2015 of 9.4 million tonnes with a head grade of 1.2 grams per tonne.

It is the goal of Nordic Mines to restart operations at the Laiva mine at a point in time when external factors, for example the price of gold and foreign exchange rates, present conditions for profitable mining.

In order to restart operations at the Laiva mine today, an additional EUR 12 million would be required, of which EUR 7 million is working capital, EUR 3 million seasonal investments and SEK 2 million liquidity reserve.

The Company is now working to find a funding solution that consists of either a single measure or a combination of measures, for example the pre-sale of gold production and gold deliveries, renegotiation of supplier terms, other types of bridge financing for working capital, share issues or strategic or financial partnerships.

In today's Notice of Annual General Meeting (only available in Swedish), Nordic Mines is seeking to achieve a certain degree of flexibility in order to find an optimal funding solution. The Notice therefore includes a proposal for conditional decisions regarding share issues, rights issues and/or directed share issues (for more information please refer to point 15 in the Notice of Annual General Meeting). In the event Nordic Mines proceeds with the above-mentioned share issue proposals, the Company intends to provide information regarding conditions, volume and a more detailed transaction structure before the Nordic Mines Annual General Meeting on 30 June 2015.

The Company's business plan is still conditional on approval from the Company's current lenders. A potential funding solution will also be conditional on the current lenders' approval of the business plan.

Nordic Mines has engaged Evli Bank and PWC Corporate Finance Debt & Capital Advisory as financial advisors.

· Operating loss was SEK -26.3 million (SEK -36.9 million) due to the production stop at the Laiva mine.

·  As Nordic Mines decided to stop production at the Laiva mine until further notice, no ore was processed during the period.

· In order to achieve the overall goal of Nordic Mines to restart operations at the Laiva mine in a manner that creates conditions for profitable mining, the Company has implemented a number of measures during the period. These measures include, among other things, that the Company, in accordance with a previously announced schedule, delivered an indicative, updated action plan and an updated financial model in January to the Company's lenders for approval. The Company's lenders subsequently invited Nordic Mines to continue discussing the action plan and the restart of operations at the Laiva mine. The Company's goal is to conclude the ongoing discussions no later than May 2015.

·  Nordic Mines progressed in its planning and evaluated a number of alternatives to strengthen the Laiva project operationally and financially. The Company also evaluated during the period partnerships for the refinement process and possible structural transactions within the Nordic gold mining industry. Even if the discussions that the Company has conducted to date have not yet produced any concrete results, Nordic Mines continues to take a positive view on a consolidation within the Nordic gold mining industry. During the period Nordic Mines also evaluated different alternatives for strengthening liquidity during the first months after the Laiva mine restarts operations, for example through the pre-sale of gold production and gold deliveries, renegotiation of supplier terms and conditions or other types of bridge financing for working capital.

· On 26 February, Nordic Mines presented an updated mineral reserve corresponding to five years of gold production. The total proven and probable mineral reserve in Laiva as of 1 January 2015 is 9,367,000 tonnes with an average grade of 1.19 grams of gold per tonne (cut-off 0.6 grams per tonne).  The gold content in the mineral reserve corresponds to around 11,200 g (360,000 troy ounces).

Comments by CEO Thomas Cederborg

"The overall goal of Nordic Mines is to restart operations at the Laiva mine in a manner that creates conditions for profitable mining. We are now in the final stages of updating and thoroughly verifying the action plan that Nordic Mines previously prepared in collaboration with the well-respected international mining consultancy company, SRK Consulting (UK). The updated action plan is based on the mineral reserve and geological model that has been updated by SRK and focuses on an improved mining method and capacity expansion in the processing plant adjacent to the mine. The updated mineral reserve for the Laiva mine corresponds to a gold content of around 11,200 kg (360,000 troy ounces) or five years of production," says CEO Thomas Cederborg in a statement.

"We also evaluated possibilities to strengthen the Laiva project through partnerships and structural transactions with other actors in the Nordic gold mining industry. Even if the discussions we have conducted to date have not produced any concrete results, Nordic Mines continues to believe that gold concentrate from several Nordic gold projects could be refined in the Nordic Mines processing plant, thereby processing the final product all the way from gold concentrate to doré bars and subsequently improving profitability. There are even clear synergies in the form of purchasing optimisation and streamlined administration. Finally, the falling price of gold, which has been the trend for the past few years, has reached a point where a number of interesting structural transactions may now occur," concludes Thomas Cederborg.

The information above has been made public in accordance with the Securities Market Act and/or Financial Instruments Trading Act. The information was published at 08.00 (CET) on April 30, 2015.

Nordic Mines is a Nordic mining and exploration company whose vision is to be one of the leading gold producers in the Nordics and Europe and a role model in respecting the environment.

Nordic Mines AB Interim report January-March 2015

2015-03-26 Nordic Mines informs about the ongoing work with the updated business plan for the Laiva mine

The English version of this press release is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original. In the event of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation, the Swedish text shall take precedence. This is not a legal document.

As previously announced, Nordic Mines has delivered an indicative updated business plan and an updated financial model for the Laiva mine to the Company's lenders for approval. Nordic Mines is now discussing the re-start of the Laiva mine with the Company's lenders as well as a number of alternatives for strengthening the project structurally, operationally and financially. Nordic Mines' original goal, which was previously announced, was to present an approved updated business plan during March 2015.  Due to the ongoing discussions, the Company has now made the assessment that approval will not be granted before the end of March 2015. The Company's revised goal is therefore to conclude the ongoing discussions and through a press release present in April 2015, or at the latest May 2015, a final, updated business plan for the Laiva mine that has been approved by the Company's lenders.

With the aim of achieving the Company's overall goal of restarting operations at the Laiva mine in a manner that creates conditions for profitable mining, Nordic Mines is now moving forward in its planning with the evaluation of a number of alternatives to strengthen the Laiva project structurally, operationally and financially. The Company is evaluating various partnerships for the refinement process and possible structural transactions within the Nordic gold mining industry. Nordic Mines is also evaluating different alternatives for creating more financial flexibility once operations have been restarted, for example through the pre-sale of gold production and gold deliveries, renegotiated supplier terms or other types of bridge financing for working capital.

The updated business plan for the Laiva mine was prepared in collaboration with the well-respected international mining consulting company, SRK Consulting (UK) Limited (SRK). SRK also prepared the updated mineral reserve and the mineral resource for the Laiva mine, which the Company presented in a press release on 26 February 2015.

Nordic Mines is reporting an updated Mineral Reserve and Mineral Resource estimate for the Laiva mine as of 1 January 2015. The Mineral Reserve corresponds to five years of gold production.

The total Proven and Probable Mineral Reserve in Laiva as of 1 January 2015 is 9,367,000 tonnes with an average grade of 1.19 grams of gold per tonne (cut-off 0.6 grams per tonne). The gold content in the Mineral Reserve corresponds to around 11,200 kg (360,000 troy ounces).

The Mineral Reserve is based on an updated Mineral Resource (which is inclusive of those Mineral Resources modified to produce the Mineral Reserve). The total Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource in Laiva as of 1 January 2015 is 15,970,000 tonnes with an average grade of 1.52 grams of gold per tonne (cut-off 0.6 grams per tonne). The gold content of the total Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource corresponds to around 24,300 kg (780,000 troy ounces). In addition, there is an Inferred Mineral Resource of 3,220,000 tonnes with an average grade of 2.08 grams of gold per tonne (cut-off 0.6 grams per tonne). The gold content in the Inferred Mineral Resource corresponds to around 6,700 kg (215,000 troy ounces).

The updated Mineral Reserve and Mineral Resource for the Laiva mine was prepared by the independent mining consultancy company, SRK Consulting (UK) Limited (SRK). During the autumn of 2014 and the winter of 2015, SRK also worked together with Nordic Mines to update the Company's action plan for the Laiva mine. As previously communicated, an indicative updated action plan was delivered to the Company's lenders in January 2015. The Company's lenders have since then invited Nordic Mines to continue to discuss the action plan and the restart of operations at the Laiva mine. The Company's goal is to complete and present a final updated action plan by March 2015.

Comments by CEO Thomas Cederborg

"The updated Mineral Reserve shows that the Laiva project has a life-of-mine of at least five years. The presentation of the updated Mineral Reserve marks the end of an extensive project carried out by SRK and Nordic Mines," comments Nordic Mines CEO Thomas Cederborg.

The Mineral Reserve is reported at a cut-off grade of 0.6 g/t.

The calculation of the Mineral Reserve was based on an assumed five-year gold price of € 1,020 per troy ounce (USD 1,184 per troy ounce).

Calculations of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves in 2015

The Mineral Resource that was reported in November 2013 was based on a geostatistical process that reported the Mineral Resource in blocks of 10x5x10 meters. The work in 2014 resulted in the Mineral Resource now being reported in smaller blocks of 4x4x5 meters.  The current Mineral Resource (cut-off 0.6 g/t) is based on the portion of the total mineralisation (41 million tonnes) that is estimated to be profitable to mine in the open-pit mine at a gold price of € 1,300 per troy ounce or USD 1,510 per troy ounce.

The calculation of the Mineral Reserve has been based on an assumed 5-year gold price of € 1,020 per troy ounce or USD 1,184 per troy ounce.

The Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserve estimates have been reported in accordance with the current JORC code ("JORC Code 2012").

The Competent Person accepting the professional responsibility for the Mineral Resource Estimate is Dr John Arthur of SRK Consulting (UK) Limited, who is a Chartered Geologist and Fellow of the Geological Society of London.

Comments by CEO Thomas Cederborg

"The overall goal of Nordic Mines is to restart operations at the Laiva mine in a manner that creates conditions for profitable mining. We are now in the final stages of updating and thoroughly verifying the action plan that Nordic Mines previously prepared in collaboration with the well-respected international mining consultancy company, SRK Consulting (UK). The updated action plan is based on a geological model and mineral resources that have been updated by SRK and focuses on an improved mining method and capacity expansion in the processing plant adjacent to the mine. The Company has set a goal to present via a press release the updated mineral resources before the end of February 2015 and a final, updated action plan in March 2015," says the CEO of Nordic Mines, Thomas Cederborg, in a statement.

"We are also evaluating possibilities to strengthen the Laiva project through partnerships and structural transactions with other actors in the Nordic gold mining industry. Nordic Mines believes that gold concentrate from several Nordic gold projects could be refined in the Nordic Mines processing plant, thereby processing the final product all the way from gold concentrate to doré bars and subsequently improving profitability. There are even clear synergies in the form of purchasing optimisation and streamlined administration. Finally, the falling price of gold, which has been the trend for the past few years, has reached a point where a number of interesting structural transactions may now occur," concludes Thomas Cederborg

Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or the "Company") has received applications for subscription of new shares in the ongoing rights issue amounting to SEK 100m. The rights issue alone does not provide the Company with the minimum capital increase of SEK 150m set as a condition for the carrying out of the rights issue. The Board of Directors continues the efforts to, within the scope of the financing plan presented in April this year, achieve the condition of the rights issue regarding minimum capital increase.

Nordic Mines' extraordinary general meeting resolved on April 28, 2014 to approve the rights issue previously resolved by the Board of Directors. The extraordinary general meeting also resolved to approve two private placements directed to long-term investors and to the Company's creditors, respectively.

The rights issue is, inter alia, conditional in such a way that the Company needs to be provided with a capital increase of at least SEK 150m (implying a share capital increase of at least SEK 50m). If the Company concurrently with the rights issue receives other capital increase (equity or debt) which together with the proceeds of the rights issue amounts to at least SEK 150m, it is however sufficient if the rights issue provides a capital increase of at least SEK 90m (corresponding to a share capital increase of at least SEK 30m).

The Company has received applications for subscription of new shares in the rights issue amounting to SEK 100m, corresponding to a subscription level of 52 % (of which 39 % were subscribed for with subscription rights). The rights issue alone does not provide the Company with a capital increase large enough to fulfill the condition of the rights issue. The Board of Directors continues the ongoing negotiations and its work  with other indications of interest received by the Board of Directors and the Company's financial advisor Evli Bank. This in order to examine if the remaining capital needed to reach a total capital increase of at least SEK 150m may be obtained. The Board of Directors intends to present more information on the result of the ongoing negotiations during next week.

Those who have applied for subscription of new shares in the rights issue need not to take any further action at this time. Payment for the new shares should be made only when advice of payment has been distributed. Such advice of payment will be distributed if the Board of Directors makes the appraisal that the conditions of the rights issue, as outlined above, will be fulfilled.

Restart of the Laiva operations

Provided that the transactions, the Rights Issue and settlements with creditors and suppliers are successfully implemented and that the gold price is at an acceptable level, Nordic Mines expect to restart a cash flow positive mine operation.

The company estimates that investments of about SEK 70m is required during the first year after the restart to streamline operations in accordance with the action plan. The majority relates to investments in the mill in order to increase throughput and availability. Out of the SEK 70m, the Company expects that capital expenditures of some SEK 30m is needed upfront at the restart of the operations.

In connection with the work done during the autumn of 2013, in order to produce a preliminary economic valuation of the Laiva project and additional assumptions, financial projections were made indicating an overall positive cash flow over the life-of-mine. These initial calculations have since then been further developed and adjusted as new information has been analyzed and taken into consideration. The Company believes that the mineral resource, updated by SRK, improves the conditions for cash flow positive mining operations. A restart of the mining operations is however dependent on the availability of sufficient external funding. The company estimates that approximately SEK 150m is needed to restart the operations and to facilitate the implementation of the action plan.

The Company will, as soon as it receives such proposals, publish them on the Company's website.

Resolution on principles for remuneration to senior management (Item 14)
The Board of Directors has prepared a proposal for principles for the determination of remuneration and other employment terms for senior management. Senior management consist of the managing director and other leading decision makers of the Company and its subsidiaries. The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting resolves on the following principles for remuneration and other employment terms for senior management of the Company. The principles apply for employment agreements entered into subsequent to the resolution of the General Meeting and also in such cases where changes are made to existing terms after such point in time. The proposal of the Board of Director is based on the Company's remuneration level and remuneration structure for senior management to be in line with market practice.

Basic salary: The basic salary shall be individual and based on each individual's roles and responsibilities and such individual's qualifications and experience with the relevant position.

Variable remuneration: The variable remuneration for senior management in the Company shall be structured as a variable component of the total cash remuneration package and the criteria for the variable remuneration shall, in the first instance, be related to meeting production targets set and, in the second instance, financial performance. The purpose of the variable remuneration is to promote the Company's long-term value creation. The criteria for the variable remuneration are to be reviewed annually by the Board of Directors to ensure that the criteria are in line with the current business strategies. The proportion of total remuneration to be made up of variable remuneration varies depending on position and may comprise a maximum of 20 per cent of the basic salary if the relevant criteria are fully met. If the criteria are exceeded, the variable remuneration shall be maximised to 30 per cent of the basic salary. The remuneration plan should also include a minimum performance level in relation to the criteria, below which no variable remuneration shall be payable. Given that the variable remuneration that may be paid out is relatively limited, that the criteria for the variable remuneration are clear, transparent and, to the largest extent, defined in relation to production targets and financial performance, and that the criteria are reviewed annually, it is the opinion of the Board of Directors that there is no reason to introduce any specific provisions making payments of a certain parts of such remuneration conditional on that the performance on which earning of the variable remuneration is based is proving to be sustainable over time, or which gives the Company the opportunity to reclaim such compensation that has been paid out on the basis of information that subsequently proves to be clearly incorrect.

Other benefits: Other benefits, such as company car, health insurance etc., should be of limited value in relation to other compensation and be in line with what is considered market practice. In addition, participation in long-term incentive programmes, e.g., consisting of warrants, or share in an employee fund or profit share fund, may be offered as a complement, in applicable cases based on resolutions and guidelines from the General Meeting.

Pension: The managing directors and other senior management are entitled to pension benefits on market terms, where pensionable income is based on basic salary. Provisions for pensions may be made up to 35 per cent of the basic salary and, for the managing directors, severance pay.

Notice period and severance pay: For the managing director and senior management, the notice period shall be up to six months if notice is given by the employee and up to six months if notice is given by the Company. The CFO of the Company is engaged as a consultant and is therefore not covered by the six months' notice period. In case of any notice, senior management are entitled to six months' salary. The terms of employment shall be in accordance with market practice.

Remuneration committee: A remuneration committee, appointed within the Board of Directors, shall prepare matters with respect to salary and other employment terms for the managing director and senior management and present proposals to the Board of Directors for resolutions in such matters.

Discrepancies in individual cases: The Board shall have the right to deviate from these principles if there, in an individual case, are specific reasons to do so. If such discrepancies occur, information on this and the reasons for the discrepancy shall be presented at the next Annual General Meeting. All previously agreed but not yet paid compensation to senior management are in line with the principles proposed above.

Resolution on authorisation of the Board of Directors to resolve on issues of warrants without preferential rights for the existing shareholders (Item 15)
The Board of Directors propose the General Meeting to authorise the Board of Directors to, on one or several occasions, for the period up until the end of the next Annual General Meeting, and with deviation from the existing shareholders' preferential rights, resolve on issues of warrants in accordance with the following.

The warrants may be subscribed by UniCredit AG, Bank of America Merrill Lynch Intl Ltd and Finnvera Plc (or related parties or to parties who has entered in their places). The reason why the Board of Directors shall be authorised to resolve on issues of warrants, without preferential rights for the existing shareholders, is to enable the Company to reach an agreement on write-down of debt with the creditors of the Company.

Issuance of warrants may be made up to a maximum number of 930,591,688 (equivalent, upon exercise, to 12 per cent of the total number of outstanding shares in the Company given full subscription in the rights issue resolved by the Extra General Meeting on 28 April 2014), each entitling to subscription of one new share in the Company. In the event that UniCredit AG, Bank of America Merrill Lynch Intl Ltd and Finnvera Plc (or related parties or to parties who has entered in their places) subscribes for shares in the directed issue of shares which was resolved by the Extra General Meeting on 28 April 2014, the maximum number of warrants which may be issued under this authorisation shall be reduced correspondingly. Issue may be made with or without provisions on contribution in kind or set-off or other conditions. The warrants may be issued without consideration, the subscription price for new shares subscribed for upon exercise of warrants may be equivalent to the existing shares' quotient value from time to time, and paid for by way of set-off provided that the that the conditions set forth in the Swedish Companies Act are met.

The resolution requires the support of shareholders representing not less than two thirds of the votes cast as well as shares represented at the General Meeting.

PRESS RELEASE, April 28, 2014

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO USA, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, HONGKONG, JAPAN, NEW ZEALAND, SINGAPORE OR SOUTH AFRICA OR IN ANY JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE DISTRIBUTION OF THIS RELEASE WOULD BE UNLAWFUL

The English text is an unofficial translation of the Swedish original and in case of any discrepancies between the Swedish text and the English translation, the Swedish text shall prevail. This is not a legal document.

Nordic Mines AB (publ) ("Nordic Mines" or "the Company") presents a preliminary financing solution and resolves on terms for share issues to restart the Laiva mine and exit company reorganizations in Sweden and Finland.
The financing solution implies:

  • Target to reach a settlement of a debt write-down to EUR 15m (circa SEK 135m) with the Company's current lenders.
  • Target to reach a settlement with the suppliers including a 90 percent
    write-down of outstanding debt.
  • Cash contribution of at least SEK 150m.

Discussions with current lenders
Nordic Mines negotiates with the Company's current lenders, Unicredit Bank AG, Bank of America Merrill Lynch Intl Ltd and Finnvera Plc, to reach a settlement intended to reduce the debt level of the Company. The lenders have responded positively to a settlement which essentially involves the following:

  • Significant write-down of the existing loans to EUR 15m (circa SEK 135m), of which approximately EUR 2.5m (circa SEK 22.5m) will be converted into shares through a set-off issue. The terms for the set-off issue will be the same as for the rights issue, explained below (resulting in 750,000,000 new shares in Nordic Mines, representing circa 10 percent of the total shares outstanding if the rights issue becomes fully subscribed).
  • Remaining loans of EUR 12.5m (circa SEK 112.5m) have a term to maturity of five years and will be amortized during yeas 3-5. The interest will be accumulated and added to the debt during the first two years, followed by cash interest payment during years 3-5.

The final settlement is conditional on that the parties agree on the final contract documentation, among other things. The Board is, until the day before the record day (i.e. May 4, 2014), entitled to withdraw the rights issue. The Board also intends to utilize this option in the event that the Board's judgment is that the negotiations on the final contract documentation have not progressed satisfactorily. 

Proposed composition plan
As part of the ongoing company reorganization, the Company will work to ensure that a composition is proposed regarding unsecured creditors. For all the unsecured creditors within the group, the composition would imply full cash payment of receivables up to EUR 1,000 (circa SEK 9,000) and a 10 percent payment of excess amount. 

The Board resolves on terms for cash contributions through share issues of at least SEK 150m
On March 26, 2014, Nordic Mines announced that the Board has resolved, subject to the EGM's subsequent approval, to strengthen the Company both operationally and financially through share issues.

Background and rationale
In July 2013, the Board chose to apply for company reorganization. The work during the reorganization has essentially followed the plan previously presented on the creditors' meeting. The Company has since its entering into company reorganization conducted operations based on the economic conditions given and several uncertainties.

The Company has, with assistance of the updated mineral resource and proposed actions regarding mining and milling conducted by SRK Consulting (UK) Ltd, worked out a business plan with the purpose to strengthen Nordic Mines operationally through higher grades, and more cost efficient mining and efficiency improvements in the mill. Parallel to this, negotiations with current lenders, suppliers, and potential investors, have been held in the context of reorganization and current proposed solutions are expected to enable a restart of the mining operations and implementation of the business plan.

The business plan indicates a positive cash flow over the life of mine on current gold price level. A restart of the mining operations is however entirely dependent that sufficient external funding is obtained. The Company estimates that circa SEK 150m is needed to restart the mining operations and create the right conditions for the implementation of the business plan.

The proceeds from the share issues will be used to:

  • Financing of the composition plan to the unsecured creditors.
  • Non-recurring costs of SEK 25m related to the restart of the operations.
  • Investments of SEK 30m related to the business plan immediately required by the restart of the operations.
  • Increase of working capital in association with the restart of the operations. The Company estimates that SEK 35m is required for this.
  • Liquidity reserve for unforeseen costs associated with the restart of the mining operations.

Nordic Mines AB presents a preliminary financing solution

2014-04-23 NORDIC MINES AB (publ) Interim report January - March 2014

First quarter 2014

·         The company recorded an operating loss of SEK -36.9 million (SEK -59.0 million).
·         The period's loss after tax amounted to SEK -36.4 million (SEK -45.7 million),
corresponding to SEK -0.11 (SEK -0.17) per share.

·         Cash and cash equivalents were SEK 21.9 million (SEK 149.7 million) at the end of the period.
·         Investments were SEK 0.5 million (SEK 16.5 million).
·         In total, 187 kilograms of gold (278 kilograms) were produced at the Laiva mine.
·         Since applying for reorganisation, the bank consortium continues to exercise an administrative option of withholding payments from sales of gold, which increases the risk of delayed or missed payments to other creditors, such as suppliers, authorities and employees.
·         On 14 January 2014, the Uppsala District Court decided that the reorganisation proceedings in the Swedish companies would continue for another three months.
·         The legal proceedings initiated by a supplier during the fourth quarter were concluded and paid in January 2014.

·         On 26 March a notification for an extraordinary general meeting on 28 April 2014 was announced. The purpose of the meeting is to decide on the Board's decision to conduct a new share issue, proposals for issue authorisation and related proposals aiming to create flexibility in the management of the company's capitalisation and reorganisation.

Post balance sheet events

  • On 17 April 2014 the Uppsala District Court decided that the organisation proceedings in the Swedish companies would continue for another three months until 8 July 2014. As of 8 July 2014, the Swedish companies will have been undergoing a reorganisation for 12 months. According to Swedish law, it is not possible to extend a reorganisation beyond 12 months unless there are special grounds for doing so. If a solution is not in place by 8 July 2014, the company runs the risk of bankruptcy.

Comments from the CEO

"The search for alternative funding solutions continues in order to safeguard a restart of operations at the Laiva mine."

"The first quarter consisted of intense efforts to find external financing and planning work for the impairment of liabilities in the event of future composition negotiations. To safeguard cash liquidity during the reorganisation, the company has held collaboration negotiations with union representatives for the employees at the Finnish subsidiary, after which the decision was made to temporarily stop production at the Laiva mine to realise additional cost savings," says Thomas Cederborg, CEO. 

In total, 187 kilograms of gold were produced during the first quarter of 2014, compared to 241 kilograms during the previous quarter. Since the end of July 2013, the company has temporarily ceased mining in the mine in order to gain cost savings during the reorganisation efforts. During this period, the processing plant is taking in ore from the stock piles, which contains a lower head grade. As of 31 March 2014, there were 335,800 tonnes of ore in stock. Processing plant throughput was 371,678 tonnes of ore for the quarter.

Sales proceeds were SEK 51.6 million, compared to SEK 68.2 million during the fourth quarter. The reduction is the result of lower production of gold due to a lower head grade. The lower grade is due to the falling head grade in the remaining ore stock that was processed during the first quarter.
The operating loss was SEK -36.9 million, compared to SEK -610.5 million during the fourth quarter. The loss during the fourth quarter is primarily due to extraordinary adjustments of SEK 575.9 million.
Because the company is running at a loss and using cash, primarily due to a much too low head grade in the ore stock, the additional decision was made to temporarily stop production in the processing plant. The restart of operations at Laiva is entirely dependent on that an external financing is secured.

Liquidity remained strained and totalled SEK 21.9 million compared to SEK 28.1 million as at 31 December 2013.

"A restart of mining operations is dependent on write down of liabilities in future composition negotiations as well as additional external financing. Efforts are continuing to find alternative funding solutions. It is important to keep all options open, and this requires more time," says Thomas Cederborg, CEO.

Nordic Mines AB Interim Report january - march 2014

2014-04-10 Nordic Mines: The Laiva mine produced 187 kilos of gold during 1Q 2014

The company has during the quarter continued to process ore from earlier mined ore in stockpiles, which contains a lower head grade. In March it was decided to temporarily stop the production at the Laiva mine until external financing is secured.

The gold production during the quarter was 62 kilos in January, 63 kilos in February and 63 kilos in March.

Since the filing for corporate reorganization at the beginning of July 2013, the company has temporarily ceased mining due to cost savings. During this time, the company processes ore from already mined ore at the stockpiles, which contains a lower head grade than the ore taken straight from the mine into the processing mill. The head grade was 0.6 gram gold per ton for the first quarter compared to 0.8 gram gold per ton in the fourth quarter. The lower head grade is due to a declining trend of lower head grade in the remaining stock piles that has been processed during the first quarter.

During the quarter, a few mining tests were done in the Southern pit in accordance with the new preliminary mining model, which was produced in November 2013. The target was to preliminarily evaluate the mining model as well as increase the head grade to the mill since the head grade in the stock piles is low. It is yet too early to draw any conclusions.

At the end of March it was further decided to temporarily halt the processing mill in order to stop the production. A restart of the operations at Laiva is entirely dependent of an external financing being secured.

The throughput was 371 678 tonnes for the quarter, including negative impacts from planned maintenance stops of roughly 5 days as well as reduced throughput at the end of March ahead of the planned temporary production stop at Laiva.

The availability was 87% in the first quarter compared to 84% in the fourth quarter 2013. The gold recovery was 79% in the quarter, compared to 82% in the previous quarter. The decrease in gold recovery is due to the lower head grade.

The financial results report for the first quarter will be published on April 23rd 2014.

Information regarding the proposal by the Board of Directors in accordance with this item 7

The Company has through a press release dated Wednesday 26 March 2014 announced that the Board of Directors on Tuesday 25 March 2014 resolved on new share issues, subject to the General Meeting's subsequent approval, with authorisation for the Board of Directors to resolve on the final terms and conditions for such new share issues.

The Board of Directors' proposal in accordance with the below, provides the Board of Directors with the required flexibility to attain new funding in connection with the ongoing company reorganization in a manner beneficial to the Company's shareholders. The Board of Directors intends to prior to the General Meeting, on or around Friday 25 April 2014, establish and announce the final terms and conditions for the new share issues and the final proposal for certain of the required amendments to the Articles of Association.  

The Board of Directors reserves the right to withdraw one or more of the resolved and/or proposed measures in accordance with this item 7, if any of these measures would be shown not to be required for attaining new funding and for the company reorganization. Any withdrawal is intended to be announced prior to the General Meeting, on or around Friday 25 April 2014.

Item 7 a) Resolution on amendment of the Articles of Association

In order to enable the reduction of the Company's share capital proposed by the Board of Directors in accordance with item 7 b) below, the Board of Directors proposes the General Meeting to resolve to amend the limits for the share capital in article 4 of the Articles of Association so that the share capital may not be less than SEK 1,900,000 and not more than SEK 7,600,000.

 

Item 7 b) Resolution on reduction of the share capital without retirement of shares

In order to facilitate the new share issues resolved by the Board of Directors in accordance with items 7 d)-7 f) below, the Board of Directors proposes the General Meeting to resolve on a reduction of the share capital amounting to SEK 337,804,782.48, without retirement of shares, for transfer to a fund to be used pursuant to a resolution adopted by the General Meeting.

Following the reduction, the Company's share capital will amount to SEK 3,412,169.52 divided into 341,216,952 shares (prior to the new share issues in accordance with items 7 d)-7 f) below), each share with a quota value of SEK 0.01.  

Item 7 c) Resolution on amendment to the Articles of Association

In order to enable the new share issues resolved by the Board of Directors in accordance with items 7 d)-7 f) below, the Board of Directors proposes the General Meeting to resolve to amend the limits for the share capital and the number of shares in articles 4 and 5 of the Articles of Association, respectively, to a necessary extent.

The Board of Directors intends to prior to the General Meeting, on or around Friday 25 April 2014, announce its proposal for such limits. The new limits proposed by the Board of Directors with respect to (i) the share capital may not be less than SEK 190,000,000 and not be more than SEK 1,000,000,000, and (ii) the number of shares may not be less than 190,000,000 shares and not more than 20,000,000,000 shares, whereupon the minimum capital may not be less than one-fourth of the maximum capital and the lowest number of shares may not be less than one-fourth of the highest number of shares.

Item 7 d) Resolution on approval of the resolution by the Board of Directors on a directed new share issue

The Board of Directors proposes the General Meeting to resolve upon approving the resolution of the Board of Directors of Tuesday 25 March 2014 on a new issue of shares directed to one or several investors deemed to be long-term investors, on mainly the following terms and conditions.

The subscription and payment for the new shares shall be made at the latest by Monday 5 May 2014, or at such later date that the Board of Directors resolves. The new shares shall carry right to dividends for the first time on the first record date for dividends occurring after the registration of the shares with the Swedish Companies Registration Office (Sw: Bolagsverket). Any share premium will be allocated to the premium reserve.

The Board of Directors (or a person appointed by the Board of Directors from among its members) shall be authorized to, on or around Friday 25 April 2014, establish the amount by which the Company's share capital shall be increase, the number of shares which shall be issued and the amount to be paid for each new share.

The reason for deviation from the shareholders' preferential right is that the Board of Directors, after discussions with existing and new potential investors, has assessed that attaining new funding and the company reorganization will be essentially facilitated if part of the new funding is made by way of a directed new shares issue. In view of this, a directed new share issue is considered to benefit the Company and its shareholders.

Item 7 e) Resolution on approval of the resolution by the Board of Directors on a directed new share issue

The Board of Directors proposes the General Meeting to resolve upon approving the resolution of the Board of Directors of Tuesday 25 March 2014 on a new issue of shares directed to one or several of the Company's creditors, on mainly the following terms and conditions.

The subscription and payment for the new shares shall be made at the latest by Monday 5 May 2014, or at such later date that the Board of Directors resolves. It is noted that the Board of Directors intends to allow payment by way of set-off in accordance with the Swedish Companies Act. The new shares shall carry right to dividends for the first time on the first record date for dividends occurring after the registration of the shares with the Swedish Companies Registration Office. Any share premium will be allocated to the premium reserve.

The Board of Directors (or a person appointed by the Board of Directors from among its members) shall be authorized to, on or around Friday 25 April 2014, establish the amount by which the Company's share capital shall be increase, the number of shares which shall be issued and the amount to be paid for each new share.

The reason for deviation from the shareholders' preferential right is that the Board of Directors, after discussions with existing and new potential investors, has assessed that attaining new funding and the company reorganization will be essentially facilitated if part of the new funding is made by way of a directed new shares issue. In view of this, a directed new share issue is considered to benefit the Company and its shareholders.  

Item 7 f) Resolution on approval of the resolution by the Board of Directors for the new share issue with preferential rights for the existing shareholders

The Board of Directors proposes the General Meeting to resolve upon approving the resolution of the Board of Directors of Tuesday 25 March 2014 on a new issue of shares with preferential rights for the existing shareholders, on mainly the following terms and conditions.

All shareholders in the Company shall have preferential right to subscribe for new shares in relation to the number of shares held by them. The record date for determining which shareholders that shall be entitled to subscribe for shares with preferential rights (i.e., to receive subscription rights) shall be Monday 5 May 2014. Subscription for new shares by virtue of subscription rights shall be made by way of cash payment during the period from and including Thursday 8 May 2014 up until and including Thursday 22 May 2014, or at such later date that the Board of Directors resolves. Application for subscription of shares without virtue of subscription rights shall be made within the same period of time. Subscription of new shares pursuant to a so called underwriting or commitment to subscribe, if any, shall however be made no later than on the fourth banking day after the end of the subscription period. Subscription shall in such cases be made on a special subscription list. Payment for shares not being subscribed for by virtue of subscription rights shall be made in cash according to instructions on the contract note, however no later than on the third banking day after the issue of the contract note. The new shares shall carry right to dividends for the first time on the first record date for dividends occurring after the registration of the shares with the Swedish Companies Registration Office. Any share premium will be allocated to the premium reserve.

The Board of Directors (or a person appointed by the Board of Directors from among its members) shall be authorized to, on or around Friday 25 April 2014 (however not later), establish the amount by which the Company's share capital shall be increase, the number of shares which shall be issued and the amount to be paid for each new share.

The new share issue with preferential rights for the existing shareholders is conditional upon that a sufficiently high acceptance level, in the Board of Directors' reasonable opinion, may be achieved in order to carry through the proposed new funding and the company reorganization of which the proposed new share issue is a part. The new share issue in accordance with this item 7 f) may therefore be withdrawn wholly or partly up until and including the day before the record date.

Item 7 g) Resolution on a bonus issue without the issuance of new shares

In order to avoid the requirement for authorisation from the Swedish Companies Registration Office or the court to execute the proposal by the Board of Directors for a reduction of the Company's share capital, the Board of Directors propose the General Meeting to resolve to increase the Company's share capital by way of transferring SEK 337,804,782.48 from the Company's unrestricted equity pursuant to the most recently adopted balance sheet. The bonus issue shall be carried out without the issuance of new shares.

Item 8) Resolution on authorisation of the Board of Directors to resolve on new share issues and issues of convertible instrument and warrants with or without preferential rights for the existing shareholders

The Board of Directors propose the General Meeting to authorise the Board of Directors to, on one or several occasions, for the period up until the end of the next Annual General Meeting, and with or without deviation from the existing shareholders' preferential rights, resolve on issues of shares, warrants and/or convertible instrument in accordance with the following.

Issuance may be made up to the maximum number of shares, warrants and/or convertible instrument that is allowed by the Articles of Associations, as amended from time to time. Issuance may be made with or without provisions on contribution in kind, set-off or other specific terms and conditions. The reason for the authorisation of the Board of Directors to resolve on new issues of shares, warrants and/or convertible instrument, with or without deviation from the existing shareholders' preferential rights, and/or with provisions on contribution in kind or set-off or otherwise in accordance with the conditions set forth above, is to provide the Company with such flexibility needed in order to carry through the initiated company reorganization and for attaining new funding.

  1. Other, majority requirements 

The Board of Directors propose that the General Meeting's resolution with respect to items 7 a)-7 g) (subject to that one or several matters may be withdrawn) be adopted as a whole through one resolution. Such resolution requires the support of shareholders representing not less than two thirds of the votes cast as well as shares represented at the General Meeting. Also the resolution in accordance with item 8 above requires the support of shareholders representing not less than two thirds of the votes cast as well as shares represented at the General Meeting.

  1. Questions to the Board of Directors and the managing director 

Shareholders are entitled to request information on circumstances that can affect their assessment of an item on the agenda and the Company's relationship to another group company. Such information is provided by the Board of Directors or the managing director at the General Meeting provided that the information can be disclosed without causing material harm to the Company.

  1. Number of shares and votes 

The total number of shares and votes in the Company as per the day of this notice to convene the General Meeting is 341,216,952. The Company does not hold any treasury shares.

  1. Documents

 A consortium consisting of Standard Bank Plc, UniCredit Bank AG and the Finnish state investment bank Finnvera (together the "Mandated Lead Arrangers" or "MLAs") has approved a Senior Secured Loan Facility (the "Facility") totalling €53 million to finance Nordic Mines' gold mine project in Laiva, near Raahe in middle Finland.

 

"These commitments of the MLAs mean that we now have full funding for budgeted investments and working capital in place to start gold mining in Laiva in Finland. Work on the project is already progressing, with mine development, installation of processing machinery, and the necessary infrastructure. We expect to start operation of the mine in the summer of 2011," says Michael Nilsson, CEO of Nordic Mines.

 

The gold deposit in Laiva is one of the largest in the Nordic region. The ore reserves amount to 11.7 million tonnes with a gold content of 1.9 grams per tonne. There are a further 4.9 million tonnes of measured and indicated resource with an average gold content of 1.8 grams per tonne. Once the mine is fully in operation, it is expected to generate approximately €100 million, corresponding to approximately SEK1 billion, per year assuming current gold prices.  

 

According to the feasibility study that was presented in March this year, the total investment in the Laiva project will be € 70 million. There is also a contingency of € 7 million for unforeseen costs.

 

"The Board and the Management of Nordic Mines are delighted that two reputable international banks with extensive experience in mining have, after comprehensive due diligence, committed to fund the project. This, together with the € 30 million that Nordic Mines has already raised in two rights issues in 2008 and 2010, means that we are well placed to complete the investment in the Laiva project," says Michael Nilsson.

 

The MLA's commitment provides Nordic Mines with a € 53 million Facility which is available for drawing over a period of 24 months. € 10 million of cost overrun funding will also be made available by way of a €6 million subordinated loan from Finnvera and € 4 million from Nordic Mines AB. The term of the Facility is five years with an option for early repayment. MLA Commitments are subject to final documentation and completion of the remaining due diligence. In addition to the Facility, Standard Bank and UniCredit will provide credit lines to mitigate gold price, exchange rate and interest rate risk.

Press Release (PDF)

2010-03-10 Nordic Mines AB (publ) Press release ENG

Nordic Mines AB (publ)

Uppsala March 10, 2010

 

Feasibility study for Nordic Mines' Laiva mine finalised. Good profitability even at gold prices far below present levels. Gold production expected to start second quarter 2011.

 

Nordic Mines' gold project in Laiva in Finland will be profitable even at gold prices far below present levels, according to the feasibility study that has just been finalized. The study has been assessed and approved by the independent consultancy group Hatch, which has been assigned by Standard Bank.

 

The ore reserves, i.e. the planned production of ore used in the feasibility study, amounts to 11.7 million tons. This means that Laiva near Raahe in central Finland is one of the biggest gold deposits in the Nordic region. Production is expected to start during the second quarter 2011.

 

The approval means that the study meets the requirements of a definitive feasibility study, which is the quality demanded for project financing. A summary of the study (appendix 1) is enclosed with this press release. The full study can be found at the website, www.nordicmines.se

 

As part of the financing of Laiva, the independent consultancy group Hatch has been assigned by Standard Bank to carry out a thorough review of the feasibility study for the project. Based on the results, Roger F Price, Director of Hatch Associates Limited, has signed off on the study.

 

An important conclusion of the study is that the project is profitable even at gold prices far below present levels. Cash cost is calculated at 415 USD/oz. The project shows profitability at a gold price of 630 USD/oz (around 450 €/oz), compared to the present levels of 1,125 USD/oz (around 830 €/oz).

 

The feasibility study is a complete technological and financial study covering; mineral resources, mining technology, mining optimization, processing plant design, as well as production and investments costs. Malcolm Titley of the international mining consultancy group CSA Global Pty Ltd. (www.csaglobal.com) is responsible for calculating the mineral resources as well as planning mining operations, while Outotec's (www.outotec.com) Jan H Nilsson is responsible for the main part of the study concerning the planned processing plant. Outotec is also in charge of the financial calculations of the project. Lapin Vesitutkimus Oy has carried out the environmental examination.

 

The feasibility study includes a detailed production plan for 2011 - 2017. According to plans, 12 tons of gold will be produced in the open cut mine. An annual production of around 2 million tons ore is calculated for the first few years, which is expected to yield around 115,000 oz, or around 3,700 kilos, of gold per year.

 

As a result of the feasibility study, the parts of the mineral resources planned for production have been reclassified as ore reserves. In total, the measured and indicated ore reserves amount to 11.7 million tons, containing 1.9 grams gold per ton. In addition, the measured and indicated mineral reserves amount to 4.9 million tons with 1.8 grams gold per ton.

 

In a statement to the finalized study, Michael Nilsson, CEO Nordic Mines, says: "We have now passed another important milestone on the way to full production of gold in the Laiva mine. The task of finalizing the financing of the project is now on top of the management's priority list and we are confident that we soon will be able to finish this work."
