Sierra receives an unsolicited transaction proposal. Sierra Metals recently received an unsolicited, non-binding letter of intent (LOI) from Compania Minera Kolpa S.A. (Kolpa) outlining indicative terms for a proposed merger with Sierra Metals and a concurrent financing by an unaffiliated investment firm. Kolpa is a private mining company that operates the polymetallic Huachocolpa Uno underground mine in Peru with capacity of 1,800 tonnes per day. The transaction is supported by affiliates of Arias Resource Capital, Sierra’s largest shareholder, that collectively own approximately 27% of Sierra’s issued and outstanding shares. Kolpa shareholders supporting the transaction proposal include Arias Resource Capital Fund II L.P., Arias Resource Capital Fund II (Mexico) L.P., and GR Holding S.A.
Transaction basics. While specifics remain to be disclosed and could change, the proposed transaction would be an operational merger of Kolpa and Sierra assets in Peru, following a business combination that would result in Sierra owning all the shares or assets of Kolpa. Concurrent with the transaction, Kolpa’s financing partner proposes to purchase unsecured convertible debentures that would be convertible into common shares of Sierra.
