Additional Investment in Red Rock Resources
Metal Tiger plc (LON:MTR) the London Stock Exchange AIM listed investor in strategic natural resource projects is pleased to announce an additional investment in Red Rock Resources (LON:RRR) (“Red Rock”).
Note: We would also refer readers to our announcements dated 29 April 2016 and 24 August 2016 for details of the earlier investments in Red Rock made by Metal Tiger. As announced on 24 August 2016 Metal Tiger purchased 25,000,000 shares in a strategic financing undertaken by Red Rock taking the Company’s holding in Red Rock following admission of placing shares to 78,571,427 shares or 16.81% of issued share capital.
On 7 September 2016 Metal Tiger purchased an additional 2,500,000 shares in Red Rock on the market at an average price per share of 0.4199p increasing Metal Tiger’s holding to 81,071,427 shares equating to 17.35% of Red Rock’s issued share capital.
In addition in association with the financing announced on 24 August 2016 Metal Tiger received 25,000,000 24 month warrants to subscribe for additional Red Rock shares at a price of 0.80p over the next two years. These warrants are added to the 29,761,904 0.84p warrants received with a 30 month exercise period from Metal Tiger’s participation in the April 2016 financing.
Paul Johnson, the Chief Executive Officer of Metal Tiger plc commented: “We continue to build our position in Red Rock in line with our corporate objective of securing larger positions in undervalued resource companies. We note the update provided by Red Rock yesterday confirming the receipt of first oil revenues, an instalment payment following the disposal of the Colombian gold project and progress being made with regard to negotiations in respect of the CML promissory note. Recognising the small market capitalisation of Red Rock, the receipt of circa US$231,000 cash is a material development and the potential for a negotiation of the promissory note position and further incoming working capital is even more attractive.
Whilst the market fails to recognise the value and potential of companies like Red Rock, Metal Tiger will continue to accumulate. Recent history has taught the market that share prices of resource companies perpetually decline, however a slightly longer historical view demonstrates we are in a cyclical business and the upside swings can be as impressive as the downside falls are demoralising.
Metal Tiger now holds 17.35% of Red Rock and we look forward to the business flourishing as the sector continues what we believe is a strong recovery phase. In addition Metal Tiger holds Red Rock circa 54.7m Red Rock warrants to acquire additional shares at further increasing our exposure to the upside potential.
Finally, Metal Tiger will shortly make its nomination request for a seat on the board of Red Rock.”
In the financial year ended June 2015 RRR made a loss of £8,411,541 (unaudited interims to 31 December 2015 loss of £22,025) and had net assets of £7,527,488 (unaudited interims to 31 December 2015 net assets of £7,947,994).
