Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On December 18, 2020, NioCorp Developments Ltd. (the “Company”) entered into a convertible note and warrant subscription agreement (the “Subscription Agreement”) with Nordmin Engineering Ltd (“Nordmin”). Pursuant to the Subscription Agreement, NioCorp issued to Nordmin a convertible note in a principal amount of approximately $1.872 million (the “Convertible Note”) and 500,000 common share warrants (the “Warrants”) for an aggregate subscription price of approximately $1.804 million, which amount will be set off against the amount owing to Nordmin by the Company for past services.

 

The Convertible Note will mature on December 18, 2021 with an implied interest rate of 5% per annum and, subject to certain terms and conditions, is convertible into up to 4,500,000 common shares of the Company (“Common Shares”) at a conversion price of 92% of the five-day volume weighted average price of the Common Shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange at the time of conversion. The Convertible Note contains restrictions on how much of the principal amount may be converted in any 30-day period. The Convertible Note also provides the Company with the option to prepay, in whole or in part, any outstanding principal amount thereunder, upon three days’ notice to Nordmin. In addition, Nordmin is entitled to accelerate the maturity of the Convertible Note and require the Company to prepay the outstanding principal amount upon the occurrence of an event of default and other designated events described in the Convertible Note.

 

Subject to certain terms and conditions, each Warrant is exercisable into one Common Share at a price of C$0.80 per share for until December 18, 2022.

 

Upon issuance, the Common Shares underlying the Convertible Note and the Warrants will be fully paid and non-assessable and will rank equally in all respects with all other Common Shares then outstanding.

 

The above summary of the material terms of the Convertible Note, the Warrants and the Subscription Agreement is qualified in its entirety by the actual terms and conditions of the Convertible Note, the Warrant certificate and the Subscription Agreement, which are filed as Exhibits 4.1, 4.2 and 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, respectively, and are hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.

On December 18, 2020, the Company issued 836,551 Common Shares to Nordmin upon conversion of $450,000 in principal amount of the Convertible Note at a conversion price of C$0.684 per share.
