Norwest Minerals Intends To Close IPO Early As $6.6 Million Float Is Oversubscribed

While providing the IPO update, company informed that total applications received have surpassed the minimum subscription value of $6.6 million. Officials stated that although the initial public offer is slated to close on 15th November 2018, the company is likely to close the offer early.
