(All dollar amounts are in thousands of United Statesdollars unless otherwise indicated, except for per ounce, and per share amounts)
VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ - Metalla Royalty & Streaming Ltd. ("Metalla") (TSXV: MTA) (NYSE American: MTA) and Nova Royalty Corp. (TSXV: NOVR) (OTCQB: NOVRF) ("Nova") are pleased to announce that they have entered into an arrangement agreement dated September 7, 2023 (the "Arrangement Agreement") whereby Metalla will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Nova pursuant to a plan of arrangement (the "Transaction"), positioning the combined company as a leading emerging intermediate royalty company.
COMBINATION HIGHLIGHTS AND STRATEGIC RATIONALE
The Transaction combines complementary portfolios resulting in:
- Enhanced Scale and Superior Growth – Combined company is expected to have industry-leading growth through a combined portfolio of 105 high-quality royalties and streams with upwards of two decades of sustainable growth being advanced by top tier operators in the mining sector, including First Quantum Minerals, Newmont, Hudbay Minerals, Agnico Eagle, Barrick, BHP, Glencore, Lundin Mining, Teck Resources, IAMGOLD, Equinox Gold, and others;
- Strategic Positioning and Improved Capital Markets Profile – Strategically positions the combined company as a peer-leading royalty company in scale and capital markets profile, expected to bolster trading liquidity and attract greater support from institutional investors;
- Attractive Jurisdictional Risk Profile and Asset Quality – Nearly all assets are in tier-one jurisdictions (Canada, U.S., Australia) and Latin America, with top ten assets by consensus net-asset-value ("NAV") having a peer-leading average mine life of 20 years and an average operator market capitalization of $13 billion;
- Strengthened Balance Sheet and Access to Capital – Strategic partner Beedie Capital to commit to an equity investment of C$15 million and increase Metalla's existing convertible loan facility to C$50 million (for an aggregate of C$65 million), resulting in approximately $35 million of available liquidity, better positioning the combined company to fund value enhancing growth;
- Immediate Cash Flow from Aranzazu – Immediate increase in cash flow from the producing Aranzazu royalty, along with Tocantinzinho, Côté, and Amalgamated Kirkland royalties expected to commence cash flow in 2024;
- Superior Inflation Protection – Exposure to gold, silver, and copper create an ideal blend of monetary, strategic, and inflation resilient metals to preserve purchasing power and grow value over the long term;
- Tangible Pre-Tax Synergies – Annual cost savings estimated to be $2.5 million as the combined entity optimizes and integrates general and administrative expenses; and
- Potential for Enhanced Liquidity – Potential inclusion of combined company into multiple clean metals / energy transition ETFs, Indexes, and Mutual funds due to increased market capitalization and the addition of high-quality copper royalties.
This combination is expected to be accretive on a NAV-per-share basis and represents a continuation of each company's strategic focus. Each of Metalla and Nova have a common focus on building a high-quality, sustainable royalty and streaming company founded on top-quality assets located in the best mining jurisdictions, owned by proven, responsible operators. Both Metalla and Nova believe that the combined company will benefit from the strong growth in cash flows from the resulting high-margin, high-growth, inflation-resilient, and diversified portfolio.
Brett Heath, President and CEO of Metalla, stated: "We are very excited about the combination of these businesses. This merger represents a transformative moment for both companies and will lay a clear, low-risk path to becoming an intermediate royalty company. Together, we expect that our peer-leading, high-quality growth, underpinned by some of the best-in-class operators in the mining sector, will deliver superior long-term value for our shareholders."
Mr. Heath continued, "We are very happy to have the continued support of Beedie Capital as a strategic partner in the journey to build Metalla into a leading intermediate royalty company. Their substantial investment is not just a financial commitment but a vote of confidence in our vision, strategy and execution. With their support, we are positioned to continue our growth plans with available capital of approximately $35 million, which ultimately will provide the opportunity to support and grow our asset base with a path to shared success for all stakeholders.
I would personally like to thank the management, board, and independent special committees of both Metalla and Nova on their collective efforts, dedication, and commitment that was required for this Transaction."
Hashim Ahmed, Interim CEO of Nova stated: "We are excited to be combining with Metalla to create a truly special royalty company built on long-lived, top-quality assets. In May 2023, we launched a robust strategic process to explore and review all the options available to Nova that would maximize shareholder value. After evaluating various options presented during the process, it was clear that this Transaction represents a significant value creation opportunity and the best way forward for Nova shareholders.
In addition to an attractive premium, a material ownership in the combined company provides Nova shareholders with increased scale, a stronger balance sheet, significantly improved cash flow profile in the short and near-term, and much greater trading liquidity and continued participation in the growth of the Nova assets. We look forward to working with Metalla and our shareholders to complete this Transaction and believe the combined company will be a long-term leader with a bright future."
Alexander Molyneux, Chairman of Metalla's Special Committee stated: "Copper really is the new oil. It has a unique long-term growth profile among main liquid metals in a de-carbonizing world. However, from a royalty perspective, there's very few royalties available on large tier-one copper projects. These features make Nova a highly strategic combination for Metalla and going forward we will be positioned with unique long-term growth prospects compared to pure-play precious metals royalty peers. On behalf of the Metalla Special Committee, I'd like to thank our hard-working management team for their efforts in bringing the Transaction to fruition."
David Bell, Managing Director at Beedie Capital stated: "Metalla and Nova have a common philosophy of discipline and capital efficiency, executed through a similar strategy of acquiring the best-in-class royalties across the development curve that present highly favourable, asymmetrical risk / return characteristics. As these royalties have de-risked and expanded, they have created significant intrinsic value per share growth for both companies over a short period of time.
The combination of Metalla and Nova is a natural and strategic fit that we feel amplifies the opportunity beyond what either could achieve on its own. The combined entity has a highly unique portfolio of royalties in key gold and copper projects in top jurisdictions. We believe this will create organic cash flow growth for years to come, while maintaining substantial option value across the broader portfolio. Additionally, the increased scale, consolidated management team and diversification of strategy will allow for broader reach and enhanced ability to execute on the next phase of accretive acquisitions that will continue to compound growth for the platform. We are excited for the next chapter for Metalla."

- Participation in a larger cash flow generating portfolio with a significant increase in near-term production through exposure to Tocantinzinho, Amalgamated Kirkland, and Côté, which are expected to start production in 2024;

STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP WITH BEEDIE CAPITAL
Concurrent with closing the Transaction, Beedie Capital ("Beedie"), an Insider (as such term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") of Nova, has agreed to:
- subscribe for C$15 million in an equity placement of Metalla;
- amend and increase the existing convertible loan agreement with Metalla (the "Metalla ConvertibleLoan"); and
- terminate its convertible loan agreement with Nova (the "Nova Convertible Loan").
Beedie has entered into a subscription agreement to complete a C$15 million equity placement in Metalla (the "Equity Investment"), pursuant to which it has agreed, subject to certain conditions, to subscribe for 2.8 million subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts"), at a price of C$5.29 per Subscription Receipt, which is the closing price of the common shares of Metalla on September 7, 2023. Upon closing of the Transaction, and subject to certain conditions, each Subscription Receipt will convert into one common share of Metalla, without payment of additional consideration or further action. After the conversion of the Subscription Receipts into common shares of Metalla, Beedie will beneficially hold 8.7 million common shares of Metalla, representing approximately 9.7% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the combined company on a non-diluted basis and 12.7% on a partially diluted basis assuming conversion of all draws under the amended Metalla Convertible Loan.
The proceeds of the Equity Investment will be used for the acquisition of royalties and streams, transaction expenses, and general and administrative expenses of the combined company following completion of the Transaction. The Company intends to rely on the "part and parcel exception" under the policies of the TSXV in respect of the Equity Investment as the Equity Investment is integral to the Transaction by capitalizing the combined company.
Metalla Convertible Loan
Metalla and Beedie have entered into a term sheet dated September 7, 2023, (the "Term Sheet") pursuant to which Beedie and Metalla have agreed, subject to certain conditions, including the due execution of a definitive agreement, to amend the Metalla Convertible Loan, effective as of closing of the Transaction, the key terms of which are as follows:
- increase the loan facility from C$25.0 million to C$50.0 million;
- drawdown C$16.4 million at a conversion price of C$6.00 per share, to refinance the C$4.2 million principal outstanding under the Metalla Convertible Loan, and the C$12.2 million principal outstanding under the Nova Convertible Loan (other than in respect of the accrued and unpaid interest and fees);
- drawdown an amount equal to the accrued and unpaid interest and fees outstanding under the Nova Convertible Loan as at the time of the closing of the Transaction, with the accrued and unpaid interest having a conversion price equal to the market price of the shares of Metalla at the time of conversion, and the accrued and unpaid fees shall not be convertible into common shares of Metalla. The accrued and unpaid interest and fees were C$2.4 million as at September 1, 2023;
- for an eighteen-month period from the close of the Transaction, accrue the 10.0% interest to the principal;
- update existing security arrangements and financial covenants to reflect security to be provided by Nova and its subsidiaries for the Metalla Convertible Loan; and
- Metalla will pay to Beedie an amendment fee of C$125,000.
Each of the foregoing changes are subject to entering of mutually agreeable definitive documentation, closing of customary conditions, and regulatory approvals.
Nova Convertible Loan
As per the Term Sheet and discussed above, and concurrent with closing of the Transaction, Metalla will draw down on the Metalla Convertible Loan and pay out and discharge all obligations under the Nova Convertible Loan and the facility will be terminated.
Pursuant to the Transaction, Nova shareholders will receive 0.36 of a common share in the capital of Metalla (the "Metalla Shares") per each common share in the capital of Nova (the "Nova Shares") held, representing consideration of C$1.90 per Nova Share, based on the closing price of Metalla Shares on September 7, 2023, of C$5.29. The exchange ratio implies a premium of 25% based on the closing share prices of Nova on September 7, 2023, and a premium of 32% based on the closing price of Nova on May 16, 2023, the day prior to the date that Nova announced it had retained PI Financial to explore options to maximize shareholder value. The purchase price implies a total equity value of C$190 million on a fully-diluted basis. The Transaction will be carried out by way of a court-approved plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia).
Upon completion of the Transaction, existing Metalla and Nova shareholders would own approximately 60% and 40% of the combined company, respectively, on a fully-diluted basis. Metalla currently has 52.8 million Metalla Shares issued and outstanding, and upon completion of the Transaction is expected to have approximately 86.7 million Metalla Shares issued and outstanding without giving effect to the Equity Investment.
The Transaction is subject to the approval at a special meeting of Nova shareholders, by at least 66 2/3% of the votes cast by Nova shareholders, as well as by a simple majority of the votes cast by the Nova shareholders, excluding the votes cast by certain persons as required by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions.
Other Conditions to Completion of the Transaction and Related Matters
Completion of the Transaction is also subject to certain approvals of the British Columbia Supreme Court, the TSXV, and of the NYSE American, the receipt of all other necessary regulatory and third party approvals, and other customary conditions. No shareholder approval is required for Metalla. The Arrangement Agreement includes customary provisions, including non-solicitation by Nova of alternative transactions and non-solicitation by Metalla of competing transactions, a right of Metalla to match superior proposals and a $7.5 million termination fee, payable to Metalla under certain customary circumstances.
The Transaction involves Non-Arm's Length Parties (as such term is defined in the policies of the TSXV) as each of Brett Heath and E.B. Tucker are directors of both Metalla and Nova. The Transaction will be carried out by way of a court-approved plan of arrangement under the Business Corporation Act (British Columbia). The Equity Investment, and the Term Sheet are subject to TSXV and NYSE American acceptance, and the Subscription Receipts and the Metalla Shares underlying the Subscription Receipts will be subject to a statutory four-month and one day hold period from the issuance of the Subscription Receipts.
Complete details of the Transaction will be included in a management information circular to be delivered to Nova shareholders in the coming weeks. Subject to receiving requisite court approval, the special meeting of shareholders of Nova is expected to be held in November 2023 and the Transaction is expected to close in late 2023.
