VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nabis Holdings Inc. (CSE: NAB) (OTC: NABIF) (FRA: A2PL) (“Nabis” or the “Company”) announces that they have received a Demand for Payment from Odyssey Trust Company Ltd. The Company was notified after the close of business on July 24, 2020 that Odyssey Trust Company Ltd. has commenced a legal action against the Company, alleging a breach of the Indenture Agreement occurred when Nabis Holdings Inc. deferred the interest payment due to the unsecured debenture holders on June 30, 2020.
On July 13, 2020, the Company received notice from the Trustee indicating that the missed June interest payment constitutes an Event of Default as defined in the Indenture and accordingly, the outstanding $35,791,759 representing principal and accrued interest (the “Indebtedness”) of the unsecured convertible debentures were due and payable by July 23, 2020. The notice failed to address the Company’s reliance on the force majeure clause which states that an interest payment missed due to epidemics or governmental actions do not constitute an Event of Default. The Company disagrees with the Trustee’s position and will vigorously defend any steps taken by the Trustee to recover payment of the Indebtedness.
On June 29, 2020, the Company previously announced that it would not make the quarterly interest payment due to Debenture Holders on June 30, 2020. The Company currently has $35M in 8% unsecured convertible debentures outstanding, maturing on March 26, 2022.
Shay Shnet, CEO of Nabis indicated “the language in the Indenture Agreement is very clear; due to a pandemic and pursuant to the terms of the Indenture, the Company was relieved of its obligations during the period of the pandemic.”
