Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Scandium International Mining Corp. (the Company) entered into a share exchange agreement dated for reference June 30, 2017 and fully executed on July 25, 2017 (the Agreement) with EMC Australia Pty Ltd. (EMC-A), and Scandium Investments LLC (SIL), pursuant to which the Company agreed to acquire a 20% ownership in EMC-A from SIL in consideration for the issuance to SIL of 57,371,565 common shares of the Company representing 25% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company as at the close of business on June 14, 2017. The Company will also issue to SIL additional common shares of the Company equal in value to the Canadian dollar equivalent of US$420,000, determined using the closing price of the common shares of the Company on the Toronto Stock Exchange as at the close of trading on the day following the approval of shareholders to the issuance of shares to SIL pursuant to the Agreement at a special meeting of shareholders of the Company. The issuance of the additional common shares of the Company represents an adjustment payment due to the fact that the Companys 80% interest in EMC-A is subject to a 0.7% gross revenue royalty interest, whereas SILs 20% interest is not encumbered by that royalty.
Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company and SIL will on closing enter into a nomination rights agreement, whereby SIL will have the right to nominate two directors to the Board of Directors of the Company for so long as SIL holds at least 15% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company, and one director for so long as SIL holds at least 5% but less than 15% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company.
The Transaction will increase the Companys ownership of EMC-A from 80% to 100%.
