Premier Diversified Holdings Inc. announces that it has entered into a loan agreement with MPIC Fund I, LP (“MPIC“) for a secured loan in the principal amount of up to USD$40,000 (the “Loan“). The Loan matures on December 21, 2021 and bears interest at a rate of 6% per annum. The Loan is secured with all of the present and after-acquired property of the Company and ranks equally in priority with all of the loans previously made to the Company by MPIC. The Loan will be used for working capital.
The Company is not issuing any securities, or paying any bonus, commission or finder’s fees on the Loan. The Loan is repayable at any time without penalty. The Company expects to repay the financing upon receiving funds from some of its other investments.
Related party transaction disclosure
As MPIC is a control person of Premier, the Loan constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). The Loan has been determined to be exempt from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation or minority shareholder approval based on sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(f) of MI 61-101.
Premier does not have securities listed or quoted on any of the specified markets listed in section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101. Premier is relying on the exemption from minority shareholder approval in 5.7(1)(f) of MI 61-101 as the loan was obtained by Premier from MPIC on reasonable commercial terms that are not less advantageous to Premier than if the loan had been obtained from a person dealing at arm’s length with Premier. Further, the loan is not convertible, directly or indirectly, into equity or voting securities of Premier or a subsidiary entity of the issuer, or otherwise participating in nature, or repayable as to principal or interest, directly or indirectly, in equity or voting securities of Premier or a subsidiary entity of the issuer.
The Loan is subject to review and acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
Amended Loan Agreement with MPIC Fund I, LP.
Premier entered into a loan agreement with MPIC on December 12, 2019 with a principal amount of US$200,000 and a maturity date of December 12, 2020. MPIC and Premier agreed to extend the maturity date by twelve months to December 13, 2021.
