Solimar Energy Limited: Share Interest Payment Notice

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2013) -


Solimar Energy Limited (TSX VENTURE:SXS)(ASX:SGY) ("The Company") provides notice to the holders of outstanding debentures ("February Debentureholders"), which were issued pursuant to the trust indenture dated February 10, 2012, as amended July 27, 2012, (the "February Indenture"), that the Company elects to satisfy its obligation to pay interest to February Debentureholders on March 31, 2013 by issuing up to an aggregate of 1,380,831 common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") (subject to adjustment in accordance with the terms of the February Indenture) being that number of Common Shares equal to the number obtained by dividing the amount of interest due and payable by the Discounted Market Price as defined in the TSX-V policies, and which is currently C$0.05.

The Company also provides notice to the holders of outstanding debentures ("June Debentureholders") which were issued pursuant to the trust indenture dated June 26, 2012 (including supplemental indentures thereto, the "June Indenture") that the Company wishes to satisfy its obligation to pay interest to June Debentureholders on March 31, 2013 by issuing and delivering up to an aggregate of 2,169,866 Common Shares, also at the Discounted Market Price.

The June debentureholders are required to approve any issue of Common Shares to satisfy the obligation to pay interest where the price calculated under the formula in the June Indenture (90% of the volume weighted average price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange for the 10 consecutive trading days ending on the 19th day of the final month of the quarter) is below C$0.05. In the case of the quarter ended March 31, 2013 the formula calculated a price below that threshold.

As a result the Company has requested approval from the June debentureholders to satisfy its obligation to pay interest through issuing Common Shares at C$0.05. At the time of this notice approval has not yet been received. If no approval is given the Company is required to satisfy the interest due the June Debentureholders for the quarter through a payment of cash.
