("Sage" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SGX) has entered into an amendment agreement (the "Amendment Agreement") relating to its senior secured term debt facility (the "Facility") with Waterton Global Value, L.P. ("Waterton"). In the Amendment Agreement, Waterton agrees to extend the Facility's maturity date from October 3, 2014 to October 15, 2015 (the "Maturity Date").

The total amount outstanding under the Facility is approximately CAD$1.82 million inclusive of principal, accrued interest and fees payable to date. The annual interest rate of the Facility is 12%, and payment of accrued and future interest and fees shall be deferred until the Maturity Date.

Commencing on September 30, 2014 and continuing until such time as the Facility has been repaid in full, Waterton shall have the option (the "Conversion Option"), exercisable in its sole and absolute discretion, to acquire the Company's Lynx property in consideration for the full extinguishment of Sage's payment obligations under the Facility, the termination of this Facility, and Waterton's release of the security over the Company's assets.

Sage's President and CEO, Nigel Lees, commented, "We appreciate the support that Waterton has shown in extending the maturity of this credit facility, providing Sage with additional time to execute its previously announced strategy of selective joint ventures / asset sales and / or equity financings to improve the Company's financial position in these challenging market conditions and place the Company in a strong position for the future."
