SEC Adopts FAIR Act Rules Promoting Research Reports on Investment Funds

Washington, D.C.–(Newsfile Corp. – November 30, 2018) – The Securities and Exchange Commission today adopted rules and amendments designed to promote research on mutual funds, exchange‑traded funds, registered closed-end funds, business development companies, and similar covered investment funds. These changes reduce obstacles to providing research on investment funds by harmonizing the treatment of such research with research on other public companies. The Commission took this action in furtherance of the mandate in the Fair Access to Investment Research Act of 2017 (FAIR Act).

“These rules will promote greater access to research for investors in funds,” said SEC Chairman Jay Clayton. “Our response to this legislation is crafted to facilitate more informed decision making, which in turn should improve the quality of a market that has become important to our Main Street investors.”

The rules and amendments generally establish a safe harbor for a broker or dealer to publish or distribute research reports on investment funds under certain conditions. This new safe harbor is similar to a regulatory safe harbor that currently exists for research reports about public companies.

Sweet Natural Trading Co. Announces Q3 2018 Financial Results and Additional Financing

Toronto, Canada–(Newsfile Corp. – November 30, 2018) – Sweet Natural Trading Co. Limited (TSXV: NTRL) (“Sweet Natural Trading”, or the “Company”) announces that is has released its financial and operating results for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017. Highlights of the results include:

2018 2017
Revenue $ 1,050,208 $ 1,627,207
Gross Profit $ 299,566 $ 543,163
Net Loss $ (1,187,891) $ (432,758)
EBITDA $ (995,114) $ (198,896)
Adjusted EBITDA* $ (409,283) $ (122,056)
Loss per share $ (0.02) $ (0.01)

* EBITDA adjusted for share-based payments, restructuring and research and development costs.

Sweet Natural Trading continues to be an industry leader in providing the highest quality xylitol to the North American retail market and aspires to continue to be the industry leader. To allow for continued growth and capacity, management decided to shutter operations in Denver and utilize the services of focused and established co-packers together with a leading third party logistics company which will help to improve cost efficiencies, reduce fixed cost overhead and improve margins. Sales and margins in Q3 however were impacted by the transition. The Company has worked diligently with both suppliers and co-packers to execute a plan to mitigate the situation for the remainder of the year. As part of the transition the Company also incurred $574,347 in restructuring costs in shutting down Denver operations this quarter of which the majority was non cash related to write offs of legacy inventory and equipment.

With the brand transformation and restructuring of the business almost complete, the Company has focused its efforts on meeting with retailers and customers to now focus on sales growth – from adding new accounts, expanding geographic distribution with existing accounts and product extension to leverage the now 7000+ retail doors that the Company currently penetrates. We continue to use this momentum to target sales growth with our newly branded portfolio of natural sweeteners. The full text of the Company’s interim consolidated financial statements and related management’s discussion and analysis (“MD&A”) can be found at: www.sedar.com.

Excelsior Mining Closes US$75 Million Project Financing Package and Announces Construction Decision for the Gunnison Copper Project

Phoenix, Arizona–(Newsfile Corp. – November 30, 2018) – Excelsior Mining Corp. (TSX: MIN) (FSE: 3XS) (OTCQX: EXMGF) (“Excelsior” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has closed a US$75 million project financing package (collectively, the “Financing“) (see Excelsior press release dated October 31, 2018). The Financing has been provided by Triple Flag Mining Finance Bermuda Ltd.

“With this comprehensive financing package, Excelsior will initiate construction activities at the Gunnison Copper Project before year-end,” said Stephen Twyerould, President & CEO. “With the two crucial milestones of permitting and construction financing now behind us, we look forward to unlocking the remarkable economics of this project as we advance towards first copper production from the wellfield in 2019.”

The closing of the Financing resulted in Excelsior receiving initial gross proceeds of US$20 million. This amount consists of the initial US$10 million of the US$65 million deposit (the “Stage 1 Upfront Deposit“) under the terms of a metals purchase and sale agreement (the “Stream Agreement“), and US$10 million proceeds of the Equity Placement. The balance of the Stage 1 Upfront Deposit will be provided in instalments at the request of Excelsior as it expends or allocates previously received funds for the construction of the Gunnison Copper Project. As per the Equity Placement component of the Financing, Excelsior has issued to Triple Flag 13,818,977 common shares at an aggregate subscription price of US$10 million, or equal to approximately Cdn$0.95 per share at current exchange rates. The common shares are subject to a four-month statutory hold period that expires on March 31, 2018.

In consideration of the Stream, Excelsior has also issued to Triple Flag 3.5 million five-year common share purchase warrants, whose five-year term shall begin on November 30, 2018, entitling Triple Flag to purchase 3.5 million Excelsior common shares at a strike price of C$1.50 per share issued.

Excelsior is expecting an additional US$9.4 million in financing proceeds from affiliates of Greenstone Resources L.P. pursuant to the terms of a previously announced subscription agreement (see Excelsior news release dated November 21, 2018 – Greenstone Resources Confirms US$9.4 Million Equity Placement). In addition, if Altius Royalty Corporation chooses to exercise its construction royalty option, Excelsior shall receive an further Cdn$5 million in financing proceeds.

Construction Decision

Excelsior also announces that the decision has been made by the Board of Director’s to proceed with construction at the Gunnison Copper Project. This decision follows the close of the US$75 million Financing.

“With access to over US$75 million in capital, Excelsior is ideally positioned to start construction this year, and we are supremely confident in the ability of our management team to execute and maintain our construction schedule,” added Mark Morabito, the Chairman of the Board. “I want to thank our project financing partners, Triple Flag and Greenstone Resources for their commitment and support as we now move towards first production in 2019.”
