After the agreement, the company’s total stake in the project will increase by up to 85%.

Mr Davey, Executive Director of Superior Lake, controls two of the three selling minority shareholding entities. The acquisition is subject to Superior Lake’s shareholders’ approval (in the annual general meeting, expected to be held in June 2019) as these entities are related parties of the company.
