Tellurian Inc. has announced that it has executed an agreement to sell US$56 million of zero coupon, unsecured notes for gross proceeds of US$50 million and provide the lender with warrants to purchase up to 20 million shares of Tellurian common stock, subject to customary closing conditions.
In conjunction with this financing, Tellurian has also entered into an agreement to amend its 2019 Term Loan, including a reduction of the principal amount by US$17.1 million. The agreement provides for a paydown of US$2.1 million in cash, converts US$15 million of principal value into equity through the issuance of approximately 9.3 million shares to the lender, and provides the lender with warrants to purchase up to approximately 4.7 million shares of Tellurian common stock, subject to customary closing conditions.
Tellurian’s unaudited cash and cash equivalents balance proforma for the financing transaction would have been approximately US$100.7 million as of 31 March 2020.
President and CEO Meg Gentle said, “Tellurian is building cash reserves during this challenging time in global markets, positioning for a strong emergence from COVID-19 restrictions. We remain bullish on long-term natural gas demand growth, underscoring the acute need for Driftwood LNG.”
