KordaMentha, appointed as administators to Alita, said today it would use most of the funds from the loan agreement to repay all amounts outstanding under the $42 million secured debt facility with Alita's creditor and major shareholder, Galaxy Resources.

The balance of the loan (about $20 million) is available for draw down for working capital purposes, subject to the consent of CHE.

The administrators are currently in discussions with CHE about the final terms of the Deed of Company Arrangement (DoCA) proposal and have asked CHE to provide an unconditional DoCA in the next two days.
