Graphite explorer New Energy Minerals Ltd (ASX: NXE) made an announcement on 14 December 2018 stating that its application to set aside the Arena statutory demand will not be heard before 21 March 2019. Following this news, the share price of the company decreased by 2.041 percent as on 14 December 2018.
Earlier the company was served with a statutory demand notice under the Corporations Act by Arena Structured Private Investments because of the debts which are allegedly owed by New Energy Minerals Limited under the terms of the Convertible Note Deed between New Energy Minerals Limited and Arena.
In response to the statutory demand notice, the company had lodged an application pursuant to Section 459G of the Corporations Act, to set aside the statutory demand by Arena Structured Private Investments. In the application, the company had contended that it is not liable to repay principal nor any termination payment claimed by Arena, because Arena breached an essential condition of the Unsecured Convertible Note Deed by failing to pay Tranche 2B to the Company, in the amount of $1.805 Mn cash.
However now, both the parties have agreed to mediation of their disputes, including the Company’s claims against Arena. The mediation is going to take place before 31 January 2019. As per the announcement, if the parties do not settle their disputes through mediation, the Company’s application in the Supreme Court of Western Australia will proceed.
