- Placing and subscription of 40,125,000 new ordinary shares in Metal Tiger at a subscription price of 0.80p per ordinary share raising gross proceeds of £321,000;
- Placing and subscription undertaken around the market mid-price of Metal Tiger at the point the Company agreed the transaction;
- Issue of 40,125,000 warrants to subscribe for 40,125,000 new ordinary shares in Metal Tiger at an exercise price of 1.60p per warrant, within an 18 month exercise period (i.e. one warrant at 1.60p for each ordinary share purchased at 0.80p);
- Placing undertaken with high net worth investors including primarily existing holders of Company stock;
- Funding to augment existing underlying working capital for strategic project development.
Cameron Parry, Metal Tiger CEO commented: "It is pleasing to once again demonstrate Metal Tiger's ability to attract funding around its mid-market price; against a market landscape of heavily discounted placings by many other companies in the resources sector, this is a significant achievement.
Metal Tiger has targeted specific core direct projects for precious and strategic metals in three key jurisdictions (Thailand, Botswana and Spain) with, we believe, excellent joint venture partners, that have either now crystallised or may crystallise at any time.
With this foundation, Metal Tiger is delighted to be able to start the new year in a position of what the Board considers to be such high potential. We are grateful to the continued support of our shareholders and we look forward to reporting on progress by the Company again soon and regularly throughout 2016."
