Molycorp Prices Offerings Of Convertible Senior Notes And Common Stock

The Company intends to use the net proceeds received from the Notes Offering and the Primary Shares Offering to fund operating expenses, working capital, capital expenditures and any other cash requirements for the remainder of 2012 and 2013, including without limitation, capital expenditures at its Mountain Pass facility and other capital projects, as well as other cash requirements, such as cash payments in August 2012 to certain holders of the 5% subordinated unsecured convertible debentures of Molycorp Canada, the Company’s wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary.

Concurrently with the Notes Offering and the Primary Shares Offering, the Company has entered into a share lending agreement with Morgan Stanley Capital Services LLC (“MSCS”), an affiliate of Morgan Stanley, under which it has agreed to loan to MSCS up to 13,800,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Borrowed Shares”), of which 7,500,000 shares of Common Stock were offered through Morgan Stanley at a price per share of $10.00 (the “Borrowed Shares Offering”) in a registered public offering. The Company has entered into the share lending agreement to facilitate the Notes Offering. The Company will not receive any proceeds from the Borrowed Shares Offering, but the Company will receive a nominal lending fee from MSCS for the use of the Borrowed Shares, which the Company intends to use for general corporate purposes.
