Hong Kong (August 8, 2021) and Calgary, Alberta (August 8, 2021) - The Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Sunshine Oilsands Ltd. (the “Corporation” or “Sunshine”) (HKEX: 2012) wishes to announce the following:-



Reference is made to the announcements of the Corporation dated August 5, 2014, August 8, 2014 and February 5, 2016 (all Hong Kong time) in relation to, among other things, the offering of USD200 million principal amount of senior secured notes (the “Notes”).  Reference is also made to the announcements of the Corporation dated August 1, 2016, August 12, 2016, August 17, 2016, August 29, 2016, September 1, 2016, September 12, 2016, October 31, 2016, January 31, 2017, March 21, 2017, July 28, 2017, September 27, 2017, August 2, 2018, November 1, 2018 and April 24, 2020 (all Hong Kong time) in relation to, among other things, the forbearance agreements the Corporation has entered into with the holders of the Notes (the “Noteholders”). Unless defined otherwise, terms used herein shall have the same meanings as those defined in the aforesaid announcements of the Corporation.
On August 8, 2021 (Calgary time), the Corporation and the Forbearing Holder confirmed the signing of the Forbearance Reinstatement and Amending Agreement (the “FRAA”). The principal terms of the FRAA include: (i) the FRAA covers the period from September 1, 2021 to August 31, 2023 (the “Period of Forbearance”); and (ii) same as the Forbearance Reinstatement and Amending Agreement executed on April 24, 2020, all outstanding amounts (principal and interests) will continue to be accrued at an interest of 10% per annum until August 31, 2023, and during the Period of Forbearance, there will not be any forbearance fee and yield maintenance premium based on the initial Forbearance Agreement executed on September 12, 2016.
The Board believes the entering into of the FRAA is in the interests of the Corporation and its shareholders as a whole in view that the FRAA will provide the Corporation with additional time to repay or refinance the indebtedness owned by the Corporation to the Noteholders under the Notes, whilst at the same time the financing cost has been substantially lowered.
