MINNEAPOLIS, MN / ACCESSWIRE / December 6, 2022 / Mill City Ventures III, Ltd. (“Mill City”) (NASDAQ:MCVT), a specialty short-term finance and non-bank lender, announced today that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent for a merger transaction with Mustang Funding, LLC dba Mustang Litigation Funding (“Mustang”), a Delaware limited liability company owning and operating a Minneapolis-based litigation finance business focusing on the long-term capital needs of law firms, plaintiffs and vendors. Mustang has associated offices in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania and Sarasota, Florida. The letter of intent contemplates Mill City’s acquisition of Mustang through a legal structure that is to be determined in connection with reaching a definitive agreement, but with the owners of Mustang receiving a sufficient number of shares of Mill City common stock such that they would own 80% of the total number of issued and outstanding shares of Mill City common stock on a post-transaction basis. The letter of intent is non-binding and obligates the parties only to work cooperatively and in good faith for the purpose of negotiating and entering into a definitive agreement governing the transaction.

The letter of intent sets forth certain conditions precedent to any closing of the transaction, and a definitive agreement, if reached, would likely set forth additional customary and negotiated conditions to any such closing. The conditions identified in the letter of intent include the completion of due diligence to the satisfaction of the both parties, a financing-based condition, the consummation of a short-term loan by Mill City to Mustang, the approval of the owners of Mustang and the shareholders of Mill City, together with any related regulatory approvals that may be required, including any required approval by Nasdaq of the continued listing of Mill City common stock after any closing. Any definitive agreement that may be reached is expected to contain other customary and negotiated terms and conditions, and may contain terms and conditions different from those contemplated in the letter of intent.
