The company and Hana will continue to work closely to refine the financing package during the period until financial close.

"We are delighted to enter into this agreement with Hana and are looking forward to working closely with them to achieve financial close on our flagship project,” Tim Cornelius, SIMEC chief executive said in a statement.

“Hana is a market leader and not only one of the largest financial groups in Korea but a global investor and one we are proud to work alongside.
