Successful PrimaryBid Offer increases total Fundraise to £6.5 million

 

Savannah Resources plc, the European lithium development company is pleased to announce the successful completion of the PrimaryBid Offer that was announced on 13 July 2023.

 

Following the successful completion of the non-pre-emptive Placing and Subscription on 14 July 2023, which raised gross proceeds of £6.1 million, private investors have subscribed via the PrimaryBid Offer for a total of 8,834,441 PrimaryBid Shares, raising gross proceeds of £0.4 million.

 

Consequently, in aggregate, 139,190,084 new Ordinary Shares will be issued pursuant to the Fundraise, raising gross proceeds of £6.5 million. Following the Fundraise, Savannah will have approximately £11.4 million in cash.

 

Dale Ferguson, CEO of Savannah Resources plc, commented: "The successful conclusion of the PrimaryBid Offer brings the gross total of our Fundraise to £6.5 million. With private investors representing a significant part of Savannah's total shareholder base, we were very keen to offer access to this Fundraise to private individuals as well as institutions, and I would like to thank those existing and new shareholders who have participated through PrimaryBid.

 

"Savannah is at a hugely exciting juncture. Since the end of May, the Company has delivered the long-awaited positive DIA on the Barroso Lithium Project, which was quickly followed by significantly improved project economics in our new Scoping Study. We can now add a well-supported Fundraise, effectively at market price, to our recent milestones which provides us with a cash balance of approximately £11.4 million that allows us to materially progress our strategic European lithium project.

 

"Our energy will now be focussed on completing the DFS drilling programmes, the Mineral Resource Estimate upgrade, the RECAPE submission, the processing plant and infrastructure design, plus team expansion and community relations development.

 

"I would like to express my thanks once again to all our shareholders who participated in this Fundraise. We look forward to providing updates on our value driven workstreams as Savannah builds its position, and that of Portugal, as a long term, responsible producer of lithium raw material for Europe's battery value chain."
