92 Energy Raises A$7 Million Via IPO

The Australian uranium exploration company, which holds interests in Canada and in eastern Europe, has raised A$7 million through its initial public offering (IPO). The company had offered 25 million shares priced at 20 cents per share to investors. Pamplona Capital Pty Ltd was the lead manager to the IPO, which closed in late-March.

In its IPO prospectus, 92 Energy highlighted its focus on the exploration of high-quality uranium in three project areas in the Athabasca Basin - Gemini, Tower and Clover. The Athabasca Basin has some of the largest and highest-grade uranium deposits in the world, including the Cigar Lake and McArthur River mines.

Last year, the company had entered into a binding Heads of Agreement with Canada-based IsoEnergy to acquire a 100 per cent interest in its Clover, Gemini, and Tower uranium properties in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Post listing, IsoEnergy will become an important cornerstone shareholder of the company, 92 Energy had said in its IPO document.

The company stated that its market debut happened at an ideal time, with a renewed global focus on the role of nuclear energy in its collective low carbon future. More than 110 countries have pledged carbon neutrality by 2050 and China by 2060.  

92E was trading at A$0.275 on 16 April 2021 (AEST 11:05 AM).
