Manganese ore producer completes note issue

Manganese ore producer completes note issue

Nathan Collins, King & Wood Mallesons

A global firm advised Consolidated Minerals on its US$400 million senior secured notes issue.

Firms: King & Wood Mallesons (Consolidated Minerals Limited)

Deal: Consolidated Minerals completed a senior secured notes issue

Value: US$400 million

Area: Banking & finance

Key players: The King & Wood Mallesons team was led by partner Nathan Collins (pictured) and supported by senior associate Marcus Wettenhall and solicitor Peixin Truong.

Deal significance: Consolidated Minerals Limited (Consolidated Minerals) is a leading manganese ore producer with mining assets in Australia and Ghana, and is strategically positioned in other steel-making commodities.

Its operations are primarily conducted through major operating/trading subsidiaries in Australia, Ghana and Jersey.

Consolidated Minerals successfully completed an amendment to the terms of their US$400 million 8.00 per cent senior secured notes due 2020 (Notes).

The amendment to the terms of the Notes provides Consolidated Minerals with additional liquidity during a period of low manganese prices.

“We are pleased to have been able to assist Consolidated Minerals to amend the terms of their secured notes so that they have a debt structure that meets their objectives during a challenging time in the manganese market,” King & Wood Mallesons lead partner Nathan Collins said.
