Summary of financial results
For more information, please consult the Corporation’s condensed consolidated interim financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis for the quarter ended September 30, 2022, which have been filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and posted on the Corporation’s website at www.monarchmining.com.
The Corporation had announced on September 27, 2022 that it had initiated a strategic review of its assets and operations with a goal of maximizing value for the Corporation and its stakeholders. On November 9, 2022, Monarch’s board of directors has formed a special committee to lead this strategic review to evaluate a range of alternatives, which could include the sale of part or all of the Corporation or its assets, a merger or other business combination with another party, a potential investment in Monarch, or other strategic initiatives.
The Corporation will require additional financing prior to the end of 2022 to improve working capital, meet debt payment obligations and reach payments agreements with its suppliers. Monarch’s management has made good progress in its discussions with suppliers and debt holders. As well, a number of selected parties have been contacted by management regarding the Corporation's assets. However, there can be no assurance that the strategic review process will progress in a fashion that will allow for the culmination of a transaction or transactions in a timely manner and generate sufficient value to meet the Corporation's obligations.
