Cameron Parry, CEO of Metal Tiger commented: "We are please to announce a further Direct Equity transaction with this investment into ECR Minerals plc. Metal Tiger's Direct Equity division is focused on the identification of, and investment in, significantly undervalued listed natural resource companies.
The currently challenging conditions in the natural resource sector have provided an extensive choice of investment opportunities for companies such as Metal Tiger, who have the working capital to take positions at what increasingly looks like a bottoming phase for the sector.
In this case we feel the recent decline in share price of ECR and commensurate low valuation, combined with the upcoming potential news flow with regard to company operations, makes our investment a highly attractive opportunity.
Furthermore, with the inclusion of warrants Metal Tiger and its shareholders have enhanced upside potential from any rise in the underlying share price.
We look forward to further progress announcements from ECR Minerals over the coming weeks and months."
ECR Minerals plc reported net assets at 31 March 2015 amounted to £4,515,381 and in the year ended 30 September 2014 ECR reported a net loss of £1,746,397.
