International Ferro Metals Limited

(“IFL” or the “Company”)

Resignation of director

IFL announces that Chris Jordaan, Non-Executive Director of the Company, has resigned from the board on 12 September 2016. Mr Jordaan served as Chief Executive Officer from 1 August 2011 to 31 May 2016, when he stepped down to become a Non-Executive Director. From 1 June 2016 he was employed solely by the Company’s South African subsidiary, International Ferro Metals (SA) (Pty) Limited (“IFMSA”) on a limited duration contract, to oversee the operations of IFMSA and to assist with the implementation of the business rescue plan.

On 23 August 2016 IFL announced that all the conditions to the sale of the business and assets of IFMSA had been fulfilled, and therefore, the services of Mr Jordaan are no longer required.

The remaining transactions, for which conditions are in the process of being fulfilled, are:

  • the sale of IFMSA’s mining right and beneficiation plant; and
  • the sale of IFMSA’s claims against Sky Chrome and IFL’s sale of Sky Chrome’s equity.

The outstanding conditions include obtaining regulatory approvals, specifically ministerial approval for the transfer of mining rights, and consents of other parties to certain material contracts.

Tony Grey, Chairman, said: “the Board would like to thank Chris Jordaan for his contribution as CEO for the past five years, during which time the Company experienced exceptionally difficult market conditions, and to wish him well for the future.”

Further announcements in relation to the Business Rescue process will be released in due course.
