SLM advises ASX-listed global biopharmaceutical company Clinuvel Pharmaceuticals Limited (ASX: CUV) on updated remuneration arrangements for key executives

In Announcements,General News by SLM / October 14, 2019 / 0 Comments

SLM Corporate is pleased to announce that it has acted as independent adviser to the Remuneration Committee of the Board of Clinuvel Pharmaceuticals Limited in relation to the reasonableness of a proposed grant of performance rights to the Managing Director, and new remuneration arrangements for the Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer.

The proposed remuneration packages aimed to incentivise Clinuvel’s senior executives for achieving long term objectives, while awarding part of their incentives in Clinuvel equity in order to align their objectives and performance fully with the interests of the company’s shareholders.

SLM undertook benchmarking of the proposed packages against local and international comparable peers to Clinuvel, and also considered the experience of the executives and their track record of value creation for Clinuvel.  SLM’s findings and opinion as to the reasonableness of the proposed packages were presented to the Clinuvel Board’s Remuneration Committee.

Clinuvel is an ASX-listed global biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and delivering treatments for patients with a range of severe genetic and skin disorders.  The award of the proposed performance rights was conditional on the US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approving Clinuvel’s lead drug, SCENESSE®, for distribution to EPP patients, to enter the US market.  This FDA approval was granted on 9th October 2019.

SLM advises QCoal on successful refinancing proposal for Bounty Mining Limited (ASX: B2Y)

In Financial & Strategic Consulting,News by SLM / October 10, 2019 / 0 Comments

SLM Corporate is pleased to advise that it has acted as corporate adviser to QCoal Group in relation to a $90 million refinancing proposal for ASX-listed coal miner Bounty Mining Limited (ASX: B2Y).

Bounty was the subject of an existing recapitalisation proposal (involving a convertible note) from its existing debt financier and major shareholder, Amaroo Blackdown, which was to be voted on by Bounty shareholders at a General Meeting.  SLM assisted QCoal in submitting several alternate, superior refinancing proposals to Bounty (which were rejected by the Company’s board) and in engaging with and lobbying Bounty’s shareholders to seek their support in voting down the Amaroo proposal.

Bounty shareholders overwhelmingly voted against the Amaroo proposal at the General Meeting, prompting Bounty’s Board to enter into negotiations and finalise a funding agreement with QCoal instead.  Binding facility agreements were prepared and finalised within a tight timeframe, in order to alleviate Bounty’s financial pressures and to meet immediate funding needs.

QCoal’s $90 million funding package, comprising a senior-secured multi-tranche cash finance and guarantee facility, delivers greater funding at a cheaper cash cost to Bounty compared with the Amaroo proposal, and avoids any dilution of Bounty’s shareholders.  As part of the agreement, QCoal has the right to nominate and appoint up to 49% of Bounty board members.  In addition, Bounty will enter into a new 5-year coal offtake agreement with QCoal.

SLM worked closely with Arnold Bloch Leibler who acted as legal advisers to QCoal in relation to the matter.
