AGM Update and Statement
Metal Tiger (LON: MTR), the natural resources investing company is pleased to advise that at the AGM held at 10.30am on Friday 29 July 2016 all resolutions placed before the meeting were passed. Details of the resolutions are provided below for reference purposes.
In addition, following the passing of the resolutions, the following statement from Terry Grammer, Chairman of Metal Tiger, was released at the meeting:
I am pleased to attend the 2016 AGM of Metal Tiger which marks a highly significant period of activity for the Company.
When Metal Tiger was created in mid-2014 we were keen to utilise the vehicle as a means to identify outstanding opportunities in the mineral resource sector, with a view to creating significant returns for investors.
My own work in the mineral resource environment has shown how it is possible to secure substantial returns through the identification of underfunded and undervalued opportunities.
To do this you must have a contrarian perspective, and be willing to engage with exploration opportunities at a time when your investing peers would consider the mere prospect of investing in natural resources to be foolish and imprudent. If you share our passion for the mineral exploration and development sector, you will understand that your investing peers are not always right!
As Metal Tiger sits today we have major projects interests, valuable equity investments and a tremendous desire to continue to grow and advance our business.
In Botswana we have a substantial interest in a major copper-silver discovery. In Thailand we have diverse interests with our focus being a significant silver-lead-zinc mine and the prospect of metal production. And in Spain we are invested in a rapidly expanding business model which is yielding exploration data that drives us to expand our investments in-country.
Metal Tiger is becoming a diversified and robust resource investing business. Our market value has increased considerably since the last AGM with our investing performance outflanking many in the sector both in terms of innovation and returns. That said real returns are not generated in abstract, but through hard work, dedication and commitment. In this regard I thank the entire Metal Tiger team for their work ethic and results over the last year.
Most importantly thank you to all our shareholders who have been willing to support our business despite the challenges for resource investors during the difficult years of the sector downturn we have experienced.
A new natural resource sector dawn beckons - Metal Tiger is poised!
