VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 4, 2022 /CNW/ - Great Panther Mining Limited (OTCPK: GPLDK) ("Great Panther" or the "Company") announces that the Supreme Court of British Columbia (the "Court"), on application of the Company, has issued a court order (the "SISP Order") granting approval of the Company's proposed Sales and Investment Solicitation Process (the "SISP") involving it and, among others, and its wholly-owned subsidiary Mina Tucano Ltda.
The SISP Order, among other things, approves (i) the SISP with respect to Great Panther and the majority of its present and after-acquired assets, undertakings, and properties, and (ii) the appointment of RBC Capital Markets ("RBC") as the Company's sale advisor under the SISP.
The purpose of the SISP is to maximize the value of the Company and its subsidiaries' (the "Group's") property for the benefit of all of its stakeholders, whether pursuant to an asset or share purchase transaction, restructuring, recapitalization or other form of reorganization of the business, property or affairs of the Group, including but not limited to the Group's debt, share, or capital structure, or some combination thereof.
The SISP contemplates a two-phase process, where the first phase ("Phase 1") will involve a broad marketing process ending with the submission of non-binding indicative offers, and the second phase ("Phase 2") will involve a further opportunity for due diligence followed by the submission of binding bids. The SISP will primarily be conducted over a marketing period of approximately twelve (12) weeks in the aggregate, with Phase 1 occurring over a period of five (5) weeks.
In order to participate in the SISP and obtain access to a virtual data room, all interested parties must comply with the terms and conditions set forth in the SISP Order and other related documents, which are available on the court monitor's website at https://www.alvarezandmarsal.com/GPR.
