Macarthur Minerals Executive Chairman Cameron McCall commented: “The Board of Macarthur is excited about the prospect of dual listing in Australia and considers that the benefits of doing so will include providing the Company with increased opportunities to access capital from wholesale investors and an enhanced opportunity for retail investors in Australia to participate in the advancement of the Company’s projects.
An ASX dual listing will provide Macarthur with sufficient funding to continue the advancement of the Company’s flagship Lake Giles Iron Project in the Yilgarn region of Western Australia and will support the Company’s objective to transition to a near-term producer of premium Magnetite concentrate for global speciality steel markets.
Work on the listing process is well advanced and, following the Company’s announcement in March 2019 of its entry into a 10 year Offtake Agreement with Glencore International AG (for the sale of iron ore to be produced from the Lake Giles Iron Project), completing a listing on ASX will be another important milestone towards realising the Company’s transformation and delivering value to shareholders.”
The Board considers that the expected benefits of the an ASX listing will include increased investor interest, improved trading liquidity, reduced price volatility and improved price realisation for its Australian projects on a basis that is more consistent with its ASX listed peers.”
Cadence Minerals CEO Kiran Morzaria commented: “To echo Cameron McCall, the move by Macarthur to dual list on the ASX will be another important milestone towards realising the Company’s transformation and delivering value to shareholders.”
“In addition the move provides further validation for our ongoing investment strategy into Macarthur.”
