Quebec, QC, Canada – TheNewswire - December 3, 2020 – NuRAN Wireless Inc. (“NuRAN” or the “Company”) (CSE:NUR) (OTC:NRRWF) (FSE:1RN) (CNSX:NUR.CN) is pleased to announce that further to its press release dated November 30, 2020, a majority of the holders (the “Secured Creditors”) of the senior secured convertible debentures of the Company (the “Debentures”) issued pursuant to a private placement closed on February 23, 2017 have executed the Forbearance Agreement effective December 3, 2020 pursuant to which the Secured Creditors agreed to forbear from enforcing their rights under the security agreements relating to the Debentures until December 31, 2021. Prior to the forbearance the Company was in material default under the terms of the Debentures. In consideration of the foregoing forbearance the Company has agreed to adjust the conversion price of the Debentures to $0.33 per common share.
“We are very pleased to have reached this agreement with our Secured Creditors. This has been a difficult period for our Equity Holders, however, we believe that by putting this behind us, we can now focus on the task at hand which is to build shareholder value through the continued improvement of our business. We are on the cusp on some very important developments and we are confident that the future will be bright for all of our stakeholders” states Francis Letourneau, CEO, Nuran Wireless Inc.
The Company is seeking to effect certain additional amendments to the Debentures which are subject to approval by all Debentureholders including the following: (i) to change the maturity date of the Debentures to December 31, 2021; (ii) to settle all accrued but unpaid interest and penalties on the Debentures in Common Shares (the “Interest Settlement Shares”) at a deemed price per Common Share equal to the closing market price of the Common Shares on the CSE on the trading day prior to the Amending Effective Date (as defined below), discounted by the maximum discount permitted by Section 2.1 of Policy 6 of the CSE; (iii) interest will now be payable on June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2021, payable at the option of the Company in cash or Common Shares, at a deemed price per Common Share equal to the volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the CSE for the 10 day period prior to interest payment date; and (iv) in the event that the Company elects to pay accrued interest in Common Shares, the effective interest rate shall be increased to 15% instead of 12%.
