CALGARY, AB, Sept. 14, 2020 /CNW/ - Stampede Drilling Inc. ("Stampede") announces that it has received final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange to restructure the terms of its 10.00% convertible unsecured debentures (the "Debentures").
Under the terms of the amending agreements Stampede intends to enter into with the holders of Debentures effective as of October 31, 2020 (collectively, the "Amending Agreements"):
the term of the Debentures will be extended by three years, such that the Debentures will mature in October 2023;
the conversion price ("Conversion Price") of the Debentures will be lowered from $0.49 to $0.21 per common share ("Common Share") of Stampede, subject to adjustment in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Debentures;
Stampede will be able to pay accrued interest in Common Shares based on the average trading price of the Common Shares over the previous 30 trading days (subject to the prior approval from the TSX Venture Exchange); and
the redemption thresholds in the Debentures will be updated, such that Stampede: (i) may not redeem the Debentures prior to October 31, 2021; (ii) may redeem the Debentures on and after October 31, 2021 and prior to October 31, 2022 at the Redemption Price (as defined in the Debentures), provided the current market price of the Common Shares is at least 125% of the Conversation Price; and (iii) may redeem the Debentures on and after October 31, 2022 at the Redemption Price.
Stampede expects to enter into Amending Agreements with all debentureholders; however, in the event any debentureholder elects not to enter into an Amending Agreement, such debentureholders' Debentures will continue to be in effect in accordance with their current terms.
Stampede is a public company engaged in the provision of drilling rig services to the oil and natural gas industry in North America. Stampede's current principal markets for its services are the provinces of Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
