VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 18, 2014) - Woodrose Corporation (TSX VENTURE:WRS.H) ("Woodrose" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has completed its previously announced debt financing to raise gross proceeds of up $450,000 (the "Debt Financing").
Pursuant to loan agreements (the "Loan Agreements") entered into between the Company and certain lenders (the "Lenders") each Lender has agreed to loan the Company up to $60,000, which may be drawn down in advances of $5,000. The loans bear interest at a rate of 8% per annum and mature on the earlier of: (a) the date the Company completes its previously announced transaction to acquire 100% of the outstanding shares of Viking Energy (SC-6 Cadlao) Limited (the "Proposed Transaction"); (b) the date the letter agreement or any definitive agreement in respect of the Proposed Transaction is terminated; and (c) June 30, 2014.
Upon completion of the Proposed Transaction, any amounts outstanding under the Loan Agreements will automatically convert into common shares of the Company at a conversion price of $0.50 (post-consolidation) or such other price as the Company completes its previously announced concurrent financing. In the event the Proposed Transaction does not complete, the Company will have the right, at its sole option, to convert any amounts outstanding under the Loan Agreements into common shares of the Company at a conversion price equal to the minimum price permitted by the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Debt Financing for working capital and for costs related to the Proposed Transaction. All securities issued pursuant to the Debt Financing will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.
