The Update

Following due diligence carried out by Zamia and the positive commercial progress achieved by Kirkham since the date of the SSPA to re-commence mining activities, the Company and the Kirkham Vendors have entered into a binding deed of variation, varying the terms of the SSPA to reflect these changes.

The positive commercial progress by Kirkham includes:

  • BPCI has entered into a five-year alliance mining services agreement with PT Bruder Konstruksi Nusantara (Bruder). Bruder is a wholly-owned subsidiary of PT Bruder Bebas Indonesia that specialises in contract mining, quarrying, civil construction, mine infrastructure, earthworks and construction equipment rentals. Bruder and its key personnel have significant Indonesian country experience.

  • Execution of sales contract with customer, Sun Sign International Limited, for a 5-year period to realise high margin operations. Sales contract confirms demand of 25,000 tonnes per month upon commencement of production; and

  • Kirkham anticipates that mining of coal will commence in August 2017 with first sales occurring in early September 2017.

    Revised Material Terms of the SSPA

    The following revised terms are reflected in the deed of variation:

    • the purchase price for all of the shares in Kirkham has increased to $32 million (from $24.3 million). Assuming that the Company undertakes a 10 for 1 consolidation, this will be satisfied by the issue of 1,066,666,667 ordinary shares in the Company at a deemed issue price of 3 cents per share (on a post-consolidation basis) to the shareholders of Kirkham (or their nominees including corporate advisers);

    • assuming that the Company undertakes a 10 for 1 consolidation, the Company will raise up to $10 million at an issue price of not less than 3 cents per share (on a post-consolidation basis) under an offer of shares to sophisticated and professional investors and/or members of the general public pursuant to a full re- compliance prospectus (Capital Raising);

    • a bridge capital raise of a minimum of $1 million ($1.183m completed to date) to a maximum of $2 million; and

    • completion of the Kirkham Acquisition is subject to a number of conditions precedent being satisfied or waived including: Zamia shareholder approval as required by the Corporations Act and ASX Listing Rules, re-compliance with Chapters 1 & 2 of the ASX Listing Rules by the Company, the key management of Kirkham agreeing to executive contracts with Zamia; conversion of Zamia Directors/Officers and shareholder loans to equity; conversion of the debt securities (inclusive of accrued interest) into shares in the Company and other conditions precedent customary of a transaction of this nature.

      The Bridge Capital Raise

      The Company and Kirkham have together raised and/or obtained commitments for $1.183 million from sophisticated and professional investors (collectively referred to as Kirkham and Zamia Debt Bondholders) through the issue of unsecured debt bonds, which, subject to receipt of approval from the Zamia shareholders and completion of the Kirkham Acquisition, will automatically convert into ordinary shares in the Company under the prospectus to be issued by Zamia.

      Of the total amount raised, Kirkham is to receive $887,250 (before advisor costs) and Zamia is to receive $295,750 (before advisor costs). Each debt bond issued by Kirkham and Zamia has a face value of $1.00, a coupon rate of 15%, and conversion to equity rights attaching, priced at A$0.03.

      Assuming that the Company undertakes a 10 for 1 consolidation:

    • the face value of each debt bond along with interest accrued will be converted into shares in the Company (subject to receipt of Zamia shareholder approval) at a conversion price of 3 cents per share (on a post-consolidation basis) on completion of the Kirkham Acquisition; and

    • for every 3 shares in the Company issued to a Zamia Debt Bondholder, that participant will be granted 4 free attaching debt options to acquire a share in the Company with an exercise price of 3 cents per share (on a post-consolidation basis) and an exercise period of 24 months ending on 30 April 2019 (subject to conditions). Shareholder approval for the issue of these options to the Zamia Debt Bondholders will be sought prior to their issue.

Shareholder approval to convert the unsecured debt bonds will be sought at the meeting of the Zamia shareholders being convened to approve the Kirkham Acquisition, subject to the ordinary approvals required from the relevant authorities.

Funds raised from the issue of these debt bonds is to be used primarily to meet costs related to the Kirkham Acquisition and on-going working capital.
