Chatham Provides Further Information About The Share Purchase Plan Offer To Existing Shareholders

Listen to this article

WELLINGTON New Zealand – Chatham Rock Phosphate Limited (TSXV: “NZP”, NZX: 3GRE Frankfurt Bourse “CRP” or the “Company”) advised on June 28, 2024 that the submission window for subscriptions in its non-brokered share private placement had closed that day.

On the same day the Company announced that a Share Purchase Plan offer would be made to all our shareholders in the jurisdictions where such an offering is lawfully permitted. This is primarily in New Zealand.

It is intended that the form of the offer in New Zealand be a share purchase plan whereby eligible shareholders, regardless of the size of their existing shareholding, are offered the opportunity to apply for a minimum of 5,000 Shares and up to 100,000 Shares. The offer price per Share is CA$0.08 (NZ$0.10).

Record Date and Timetable for New Zealand Investors

New Zealand resident shareholders who hold shares of the Company as at 5pm on July 5, 2024 (the “Record Date”) are eligible to participate in the share purchase plan offer. This differs from the previously announced record date of 27 June, which is the record date applicable to existing Canadian shareholders because the offer is being made to them pursuant to different exemptions from the prospectus requirements under Canadian securities regulations.

The timetable for the share purchase plan is as follows:

Completion of the permitting process for the Avenir Makatea onshore phosphate project in French Polynesia with expected operating cash flows in 2027

General working capital

It is anticipated that operating cash flows from the Korella North mine will, during 2024 and 2025, provide working capital while also financing the development of our Korella South mine and the reapplication for a Marine Consent (environmental permit) for our Chatham Rise project.

Completion of the offering is subject to receipt of the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.  All securities issued pursuant to the offering in Canada will be subject to a four month and one day hold period from the date of issuance of the Shares in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
