13th December 2021

Trident Royalties plc

("Trident" or the "Company")

PrimaryBid Offer

 

Trident Royalties plc (AIM:TRR, FSX:5KV), the growth-focused mining royalty and streaming company, is pleased to announce an offer for subscription via PrimaryBid (the "PrimaryBid Offer") of new ordinary shares of 1p each in the Company ("New Ordinary Shares") at an issue price of 36 pence per New Ordinary Share (the "Issue Price"), being a discount of approximately 5.3% per cent to the closing mid-price on 10th December 2021. The Company is also procuring subscribers and conducting a firm placing (the "Firm Placing") and a conditional placing (the "Conditional Placing", and together with the Firm Placing, the "Placing") of new Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price by way of an accelerated bookbuild process lead-managed by Tamesis Partners LLP, Ashanti Capital Pty Ltd and Stifel Nicolaus Europe Limited as announced earlier today.  The PrimaryBid Offer, Placing and the subscriptions are together hereafter collectively referred to as the "Fundraising".

The PrimaryBid Offer and the Firm Placing are conditional on the new Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the PrimaryBid Offer and the Firm Placing being admitted to trading on 20th December 2021 ("Admission"). Admission is expected to be take place at 8.00 a.m. on or around 20th December 2021. The PrimaryBid Offer will not be completed without the Firm Placing also being completed.

As separately announced today, the Company is pleased to announce the proposed acquisition of a portfolio of producing gold offtake streams (the "Portfolio") from funds managed by Orion Resource Partners ("Orion") for a total consideration of US$69.75 million (the "Acquisition"). Details of the Acquisition are contained in that announcement.

As of 30 November 2021, the Company had cash at bank and on hand of approximately US$14.2 million.

The proceeds of the Fundraising of approximately US$35.0 million, before expenses, will be utilised to partly fund the cash component of the Acquisition consideration, for future royalty and streaming asset acquisitions, and for general corporate purposes.

Following the completion of the Fundraising and the Acquisition, the Company is expected to have pro forma cash of approximately US$19.2 million before expenses.

The successful completion of the Placing will therefore enable the Company to complete the Acquisition while maintaining a strong balance sheet and cash on hand for future royalty and stream acquisitions.

PrimaryBid Offer

The Company values its retail investor base and is therefore pleased to provide private and other investors the opportunity to participate in the PrimaryBid Offer by applying exclusively through the PrimaryBid mobile app available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. PrimaryBid does not charge investors any commission for this service.

The PrimaryBid Offer, via the PrimaryBid mobile app, is open to individual and institutional investors now and will close at or before 8 p.m. on 13th December 2021. The PrimaryBid Offer may close early if it is oversubscribed.

Subscriptions under the PrimaryBid Offer will be considered by the Company at the company's discretion, subject to conditions (which are available to view on PrimaryBid.com).

The Company reserves the right to scale back any order at its discretion. The Company and PrimaryBid reserve the right to reject any application for subscription under the Offer without giving any reason for such rejection.
