Balance Sheet Initiative – Details

In February 2020, Sherritt launched a balance sheet initiative aimed at improving the Corporation’s liquidity, reducing debt levels and building balance sheet strength.

On June 29, 2020, Sherritt announced that it had filed an amended version of the Plan of Arrangement described in the Corporation’s management information circular dated March 6, 2020, following discussions with certain noteholders.

The amended Plan of Arrangement reflects the amendments to the terms of the transaction announced by the Corporation in its news release on June 10, 2020. Sherritt has also filed the revised form of New Second Lien Notes Indenture and the form of New Junior Notes Indenture, in each case also reflecting the amended terms.

In addition, Sherritt confirmed the date of the meetings of the debtholders and shareholders. Below is a summary of important dates for debtholders and shareholders related to the completion of the transaction:
