On September 24, 2012 the United States Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of Florida entered an order approving a June 10, 2012 settlement agreement, as amended on August 23, 2012 (collectively, the “Settlement Agreement”) among CD International Enterprises, Inc. and its subsidiaries, CDI China, Inc., China Direct Investments, Inc., and International Magnesium Group, Inc. (collectively, the “CD Affiliates”) and Sonya Salkin, the Trustee on behalf of CDII Trading, Inc. (“CDII Trading”) in the case: In re CDII Trading, Inc., Case No. 12-15810 JKO (the “Bankruptcy Case”). Under the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the CD Affiliates, jointly and severally, agreed to purchase all of the assets of CDII Trading which includes all contractual rights to purchase iron ore and any surplus property in the estate after a final determination and payment of creditor claims. The CD Affiliates also retained all their rights to object and contest the claims filed in the Bankruptcy Case, including the claims of Sunskar, Ltd. and Trafigura Beheer, N.V.. In addition, the CD Affiliates will be released of all claims of the Trustee regarding the Bankruptcy Case. In exchange for these rights, the CD Affiliates agreed to pay the estate in Bankruptcy Case $1,200,000, of which, $300,000 has been paid, $350,000 is payable on October 22, 2012 and $550,000 is payable in twelve consecutive monthly installments of $45,833.33 beginning on October 31, 2012. Should the CD affiliates be successful in any efforts to object and contest any of the claims, currently totaling $1.34 million, any monies remaining in the estate after payment of claims and administrative costs shall be returned to the CD Affiliates., however, there can be no assurance that the CD Affiliates will be successful in these efforts. In the event the CD Affiliates fail to make any payment due or default under any term or condition under the Settlement Agreement, subject to a cure period, the Trustee shall be entitled to a judgment of $3,243,000 against the CD Affiliates, jointly and severally.
In addition, the September 24, 2012 order approving the Settlement Agreement approved the Trustee’s motion for a temporary bar order that prohibits Sunskar, Ltd., its affiliate Skaarup Shipping Corporation and Trafigura Beheer, N.V. from taking any legal action against the CD Affiliates for claims which the Trustee has the exclusive power to pursue or settle in the Bankruptcy Case related to creditor claims against CDII Trading. Upon entry of the temporary bar order, this prohibition shall remain in effect until such time as the Bankruptcy Court has adjudicated an allowable creditor claim after objection, further order of the Court or a default by the CD Affiliates under the Settlement Agreement.
