Del

QUEBEC CITY, Aug. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Robex Resources Inc. ("Robex" and / or "the Company") (TSXV: RBX / FWB: RB4) is pleased to announce that we have obtained bank financing from the group BNP PARIBAS in the amount of $11.5 million (CAD) bearing interest at the rate of 7% annually.

This loan will be used to repay the convertible debentures that matured on July 1st. As a result, 71,050,000 conversion rights related to these debentures will no longer be in effect, which significantly decreases the potential dilution. In addition, this loan is repayable over four years, and will reduce the financial burden of the Company because the convertible debentures bore interest at a rate of 10% annually.

The latter will also be used to repay the interest accrued on the convertible debentures maturing in November.
