Toronto, Ontario - Newsfile Corp. - 25 September 2021 - BELGRAVIA HARTFORD CAPITAL INC. (CSE: BLGV) ("Belgravia Hartford", "Belgravia" or the "Company") is pursuing a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico against Cartesian Capital Group's affiliate, PolyNatura Corp., to recover an outstanding settlement payment in the amount of USD $12.2 million.
Mehdi Azodi, President and CEO, reports:
"In 2017, the parties entered into a settlement agreement pursuant to which Belgravia agreed to sell its interest in the Ochoa potash asset to Cartesian related investors for a total of USD $15 million, comprised of two initial payments totaling USD $2.8M and two royalty streams with a value of USD $12.2 million. Through the lawsuit, Belgravia seeks a declaration from the court that the agreement governing the royalty streams is void and unenforceable because it grants Cartesian unfettered discretion to decide whether to perform. Belgravia further alleges, among other things, that Cartesian has breached the settlement agreement by failing to deliver a valid and enforceable royalty agreement and seeks damages in the amount of USD $12.2 million, which is the remaining amount owed for the sale of its interest in the Ochoa potash asset."
Denver-based attorney, Stephanie A. Kanan of Snell & Wilmer has filed the lawsuit on behalf of Belgravia Hartford.
