High Peak chairman Andrew Carroll recently said the company’s Planet acquisition is a “big step in further growing the company”.
“This acquisition provides strong revenue and earnings ahead of the potential for significantly larger revenues from other assets in the portfolio.
“Owning royalties is a proven and highly valued business model and High Peak has enormous potential in the portfolio.
“It also demonstrates High Peak’s technical ability to identify unique opportunities that can be value accretive to shareholders.”
High Peak directors have completed their subscription for shares as approved by members at the annual general meeting held on November 29, 2018.
The subscription by directors completes the full $1.25 million placement revealed to shareholders on October 17, 2018 and demonstrates the confidence that directors have in High Peak’s strategic direction.
Notably, High Peak chairman Andrew Carroll subscribed for $80,000 worth of placement shares at a price of 5 cents each.
Completion of the placement also ensures High Peak’s funding capability past the closure of the Planet Gas USA transaction and through to 2019.
