At the Placing Price and on Admission the Company will have a market capitalisation of GBP2,999,999.50.


-- The Company was formed to undertake an acquisition of a controlling interest in a company or business, targeting an acquisition in the mining and technology metals sectors;

-- The Company will look to invest in jurisdictions which are capable of delivering the necessary approvals within a timescale supportive of the targeted return;

-- On Admission, the Company will have successfully raised gross proceeds of GBP1,499,999.50; and

-- The Company's directors have extensive networks within the mining sector and technology metals sectors and associated financial service industries spanning the world's major natural resources focused centres from which to solicit and assess opportunities.


The Company was incorporated and registered in England and Wales on 21 January 2021 to undertake an acquisition of a controlling interest in a company or business (an "Acquisition").

The Board will focus on the mining and technology metals sectors. The Company will look to invest in jurisdictions capable of delivering the necessary approvals within a timescale supportive of the targeted return. The Company does not have any specific acquisition under consideration and does not expect to engage in substantive negotiations with any target company or business until after Admission.

There is no specific expected target value for the Acquisition. The Company expects that any of the Net Proceeds not used to fund on-going costs and expenses, and the costs and expenses to be incurred in connection with seeking to identify and effect the Acquisition, will be used mainly for the Acquisition. Any remaining funds will be used for future acquisitions, internal or external growth and expansion, and working capital in relation to the acquired company or business.

Following completion of the Acquisition, the objective of the Company will be to operate the acquired business and implement an operating strategy with a view to generating value for its Shareholders through operational improvements as well as potentially through additional complementary acquisitions following the Acquisition.

Any Acquisition by the Company will be considered a reverse takeover and would lead to the FCA suspending the listing of the Company's Ordinary Shares on the Official List and subsequent cancellation of the listing. Following the Acquisition, the Company intends to seek re-admission of the enlarged group to listing on the Official List and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's Main Market or seek admission to another appropriate market or stock exchange. The Company will seek shareholder approval for any Acquisition if the Acquisition requires the allotment of Ordinary Shares in excess of existing authorities to issue and/or dis-apply pre-emption rights but may not otherwise required to seek shareholder approval for the Acquisition.

The Company's efforts in identifying a prospective target company or business will not be limited to a particular industry or geographic region. However, given the experience of the Directors, the Company expects to focus on acquiring an asset or business in the mining and technology metals.

The Directors, have extensive networks within the mining and technology metals sectors, and associated financial service industries spanning the world's major natural resources focused centres from which to solicit and assess opportunities.

Following Admission, the Directors will be responsible for procuring investment and acquisition opportunities to be considered by the Company. The determination of the Company's post-Acquisition strategy and whether any of the Directors will remain with the combined company and, if so, on what terms, will be made at or prior to the time of the Acquisition.
