China Hydroelectric Corporation Announces Sale of $10 million of Ordinary Shares to Vicis Capital Master Fund
China Hydroelectric (NYSE: CHC) today announced that it has sold 8,662,509 of its ordinary shares, the equivalent of 2,887,503 American Depository Shares of the Company, to Vicis Capital Master Fund for $1.15 per ordinary share (the equivalent of $3.45 per ADS, each of which represents 3 ordinary shares), thereby generating gross proceeds to the Company of $10 million. The purchase was made by way of the partial exercise of an existing warrant held by Vicis to purchase up to 18,666,666 ordinary shares of the Company, which originally had an exercise price of $5.00 per ordinary share. The partial exercise of that warrant for the 8,662,509 ordinary shares was at an agreed upon reduced exercise price of $1.15 (which was equivalent to the 25 day trailing average closing price of the Company's ADSs as of the close of business on Wednesday, August 17, 2011). In addition, the existing warrant was further amended to, among other things, reduces the exercise price on the balance of the warrant (representing 10,0004,157 ordinary shares) from $5 per ordinary share to $1.15 per ordinary share, or $3.45 per ADS, and extends the expiration date of the warrant from November 10, 2011 to December 31, 2013.
