Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – August 3, 2022) – High Fusion Inc. (CSE: FUZN) (“High Fusion” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce an extension of the term of the August 2018 senior secured debentures (“Debentures”) from August 3, 2022 to February 3, 2023.
With the extension of the maturity date of the Debentures, the interest on the debentures to maturity will increase to 24% per annum. One half of the interest on the Debentures shall be added to the principal amount increasing the principal outstanding balance from $4,205,073.25 to $4,458,068.89. The remaining half of the interest due to maturity, representing $252,995.64 shall be payable, prior to maturity, in subordinated voting shares of the Company at a price equal to the 20-day volume weighted average price as approved by the CSE. In the event that the CSE does not approve such issuance of such shares prior to maturity, the Company shall pay interest in cash at maturity.
“We are pleased that our senior creditor and the other debentureholders have agreed to support the Company by way of extending the maturity of the debentures,” said John Durfy, CEO of High Fusion Inc. “The Company is considering strategic alternatives for its non-core assets and this 6-month extension will allow us to advance this process. To this end, we have refocused our efforts on the California market and are considering the sale of certain real estate and other non-core assets to pay down debt and allow the Company to proceed with a manageable balance sheet in the future. We continue to work collaboratively with our creditors to this end and we appreciate their continued support and confidence.”
