PGRX to Extinguish Senior Unsecured Debt
Company continues to strengthen balance sheet
DENVER -- January 13, 2014
Prospect Global Resources Inc. (NASDAQ: PGRX) (“Prospect Global” or the
“Company”) is pleased to announce it has signed an agreement that enables it
to extinguish its approximately $7.3 million of senior unsecured debt for
approximately $1.3 million in common stock, which is approximately 17 cents on
the dollar. The extinguishment of this debt on these terms is contingent upon
Prospect Global successfully extinguishing its senior secured debt as
previously announced for $25 million no later than March 10, 2014.
The senior unsecured debt matures on July 1, 2015, subject to acceleration
upon certain events. Prospect has been obligated to make principal payments on
the debt with 10% of any proceeds raised before maturity.
“The extinguishment of our senior unsecured debt will continue to strengthen
our balance sheet and position the Company for the continued development of
our Holbrook Project,” said Damon Barber, Prospect Global’s President and CEO.
“As previously noted, moving to an all equity capital structure will give us
the flexibility to pursue a broader range of financial and strategic options
as we continue the development of North America’s next potash mine.”
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
Damon G. Barber
President and Chief Executive Officer
