CYM receives firm commitments to raise AU$16 million

Further, the non-renounceable pro-rata entitlement offer will help the Company raise up to AU$10 million at the Offer Price of one new share for every eight shares presently held by eligible shareholders. These shares will be issued at a price same as that of the placement shares.

Utilisation of funds

CYM plans to use the funds raised from the capital raising towards the funding strategy to finance the recommencement of the Nifty Copper Project. The company aims to offer a secure, stable, and sustainable supply of copper metal at 25ktpa.

On 27 June, CYM entered an exclusive LOI (letter of Intent) with Glencore International AG for AU$50 million. The deal was related to a copper cathode offtake secured prepayment facility as part of the targeted AUD240-260 million debt financing package to fund the recommencement of the Nifty Copper Project.

Under this facility, the eligible shareholders who get their complete entitlement will have the opportunity to apply for additional shares from those not accepted by other eligible shareholders.

The tentative schedule shared by the Company for the capital raising is as follows:
