SOTKAMO SILVER: THE SWEDISH EXPORT CREDIT AGENCY HAS GRANTED A GUARANTEE OFFER OF MAXIMUM 33,4 M€.

EKN, the Swedish Export Credit Agency (ECA) has granted the guarantee of maximum Euro 33,4 million including the interest on 23rd August for the funding of the Engineering and Process Equipment (EPC) contract with Outotec for the benefit of the Silver Mine project.

For the avoidance of doubt, the decision of EKN doesn’t mean that the final financing package has been reached.

Based on EKN’s positive decision, a large international resources bank is currently in the credit evaluation process for the financing of the Outotec EPC contract.

The comprehensive EPC delivery contract with Outotec might increase the capital requirement of the Silver Mine project, and if implemented, will affect the economic and short pay-back time of the project, compared with the outcome of the Technical Report.

At the same time, the Board of Sotkamo Silver is working with several other financing options and evaluating different financing options to find the best conceivable financing solution for the company and its shareholders.

“I am optimistic that Sotkamo Silver can reach the win/win alternative among the options we are evaluating”, says Dr Timo Lindborg, CEO Sotkamo Silver
