The UK mine developer today unveiled a major equity and convertible debt raise which will see the company satisfy its Phase One project financing for the North Yorkshire Polyhalite Project.
In a Proactive Investors interview Knights highlights that the funding is fully underwritten and subscribed, to cover the minimum requirements, and as such it is a strong endorsement of the project.
“I think it has been a good uptake from investors and from strategic investors,” the mining analyst said.
Knights also talks about the possible timeframes for the project, including the second phase project financing, and the building of the mine.
“This is certainly the big hurdle as far as the equity is concerned, this should be the last equity that the company issues before hitting production in 2022.
“So we have a pretty good idea now of what the capital structure of the company is going to look like when it hits production and starts generating revenue and cashflows.”
