Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On April 30, 2015, Laurelton Diamonds Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Registrant (the “ Original Lender ”), entered into the Fifth Amendment Agreement (the “ Amendment ”) relating to a US $50 Million Amortising Term Loan Facility Agreement with Koidu Limited (previously Koidu Holdings S.A.), a British Virgin Islands company (the “ Borrower ”), Octea Limited, a British Virgin Islands company (“ Octea ”), and BSG Resources Limited, a Guernsey company (“ BSG ”). The Borrower, BSG, and the Original Lender entered into the amortising term loan facility agreement on March 30, 2011 (as amended to the date hereof, the “ Loan ”), pursuant to which the Original Lender loaned US $50 million to the Borrower. The Borrower operates a kimberlite diamond mine in the Kono district of Sierra Leone (the “ Mine ”) from which the Original Lender acquires diamonds, and the Borrower is required under the terms of the Loan to apply the proceeds of the Loan to capital expenditures necessary to expand the Mine, among other purposes. Among other provisions, the Amendment provides that (i) the principal payment due to the Original Lender on March 30, 2015 will be deferred until a date to be specified by the Original Lender upon at least 30 days’ written notice to the Borrower, subject to certain specified acceleration conditions set forth in the Amendment (the “ Deferral ”), (ii) Octea will accede to the Loan as an additional obligor thereunder, (iii) the interest rate per annum on the Loan will be the greater of (A) LIBOR plus 3.5 percent and (B) 6.75 percent, effective April 1, 2015, (iv) interest will accrue and be paid monthly, rather than semi-annually, including through the Deferral period and (v) the Borrower will make a one-time payment of $1,179,123.59 to the Original Lender on May 15, 2015, representing an additional amount of interest accruing at 2 percent per annum, in respect of the aggregate amount of payments deferred under the Loan. The Deferral is subject to the satisfaction by May 30, 2015 of certain customary conditions subsequent related to the accession of Octea to the Loan as an additional obligor, including the delivery of documentation evidencing Octea’s approval thereof and legal opinions related thereto. The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Amendment, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.14e to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

any failure by any Obligor to comply with this Amendment Agreement or the terms of the Amended Facility Agreement in any material respect; provided that (i) any failure by any Obligor to pay on the due date any amount payable pursuant to this Amendment Agreement shall not be an Event of Default hereunder if (a) its failure to pay is caused by (1) 5

administrative or technical error; or (2) a Disruption Event and (b) payment is made within 3 Business Days of its due date and (ii) any failure by any Obligor to comply with this Amendment Agreement in any respect other than non-payment shall not be an Event of Default if the failure is capable of remedy and it is remedied within 15 Business Days of the earlier of the Lender giving notice to the relevant Obligor or the relevant Obligor becoming aware of the failure to comply, provided that an additional 5 Business Day remedy period shall be permitted if the relevant Obligor has taken all reasonable steps available to it during the initial 15 Business Day period to remedy such failure and the additional 5 Business Days would not prejudice the Lender’s ability to enforce their material rights under the Finance Documents. 4.2.2

any information supplied to the Lender by any Obligor being other than true, accurate and complete in any material respect, unless the underlying circumstances (if capable of remedy) are remedied within 15 Business Days of the earlier of the Lender giving notice to the relevant Obligor or the relevant Obligor becoming aware of the failure to comply, provided that an additional 5 Business Day remedy period shall be permitted if the relevant Obligor has taken all reasonable steps available to it during the initial 15 Business Day period to remedy the underlying circumstances and the additional 5 Business Days would not prejudice the Lender’s ability to enforce their material rights under the Finance Documents.

For the avoidance of doubt, subject to the terms of any Intercreditor Agreement, on and at any time after the occurrence of any Event of Default listed above, the Lender may by notice to the Borrower take any of the actions referred to in paragraphs (a) to (d) of Clause 19.19 (Acceleration) of the Amended Facility Agreement. 4.3

4.3.2

Standard Chartered Bank (as agent and security agent under the SCB Facility) (the “ SCB Facility Agent” ) defers any requirement for payment of principal and/or interest by any SCB Facility Obligor under the SCB Facility and any such deferral is withdrawn, cancelled or ceases to be in full force and effect at any time; and

4.3.3
