TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / July 26, 2022 / Victory Nickel Inc. (“Victory Nickel” or the “Company“) (CSE:NI, www.victorynickel.ca)
As previously disclosed, on April 14, 2022, Victory Nickel filed a proposal (the “Proposal”) to restructure its debt under Part III, Division I of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (the “BIA”).
A meeting of the Company’s creditors was convened on May 5, 2022 and adjourned the same day to address concerns raised by the Company’s single largest unsecured creditor holding approximately 78% of the unsecured claims.
The creditors’ meeting was reconvened today and the Proposal was not approved by the requisite majority of creditors. As a result of the vote by the creditors, the Company was automatically deemed to be bankrupt.
The creditors moved to appoint A. Farber and Partners Inc. as the trustee in bankruptcy (the “Trustee”) at the meeting. The Trustee will administer the bankrupt estate including liquidating all of the Company’s assets for distribution in accordance with the priorities under the BIA. Ms. Nerina Jahja is the contact person for the Trustee ([email protected]).
Cynthia Thomas, Officer and Director of the Company and its subsidiaries and Michael Anderson, Director of the Company have tendered their resignations.
Management and the Board worked diligently over the past 18 months to complete the restructuring of Victory Nickel’s balance sheet to allow the Company to continue to operate, and ultimately, provide greater value to its stakeholders. Regrettably this objective was not realized.
Neither the Canadian Securities Exchange nor its Market Regulator (as that term is defined in policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
