Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
As previously disclosed in the Current Reports on Form 8-K filed by Coeur Mining, Inc. (the “Company” or “Coeur”) on December 26, 2017 and February 16, 2018 (the “Prior Form 8-Ks”), the Company entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), dated December 22, 2017, by and among the Company, Coeur South America Corp., a Delaware corporation (“CSA”), Coeur Explorations, Inc., an Idaho corporation (“CEE” and together with CSA and Coeur, the “Sellers”), Empresa Minera Manquiri S.A., a Bolivian sociedad anónima (“Manquiri”), and Ag-Mining Investments, AB (formerly NewCo 4714 Sweden AB under change of name to Argentum Investment AB) (the “Buyer”), as amended on February 16, 2018. The Purchase Agreement provided for the sale by the Sellers of 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Manquiri, a former subsidiary of Coeur that operates the San Bartolomé mine and processing facility near Potosì, Bolivia, to the Buyer.
On September 25, 2018, the Company entered into a letter agreement (the “Letter Agreement”) with Buyer pursuant to which the total aggregate principal amount of the Notes was reduced to $25.0 million and the Buyer made a concurrent cash payment of $15.0 million to the Sellers in respect of the Notes (as defined and described in the Prior Form 8-Ks). The Company also agreed to suspend the quarterly payments in respect of the 2.0% net smelter returns royalty on all metals processed through the San Bartolomé mine’s processing facility until October 15, 2019 and to forgo any rights to any value added tax refunds collected or received by Manquiri. Pursuant to the Letter Agreement, the Buyer also made a payment of approximately $130,000 to Coeur in satisfaction of amounts owed under the transition services agreement.
The foregoing description of the Letter Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the copy of the Letter Agreement which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
The Letter Agreement has been attached as an exhibit to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about Coeur or any of its respective affiliates or businesses. Any representations, warranties, covenants and agreements contained in the Letter Agreement were made only for the purposes of such agreement and as of specified dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to such agreement, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties. Investors and security holders are not third-party beneficiaries under the Letter Agreement and should not rely on the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of Coeur or any of its affiliates or businesses.
