Bushveld Minerals is an AIM listed mineral project development company with a portfolio of vanadium and coal assets in South Africa and Madagascar, including an interest in a vanadium-producing operation and an investment in tin. 

 

The Company has entered into a conditional agreement to acquire 55 per cent. of the issued share capital of Bushveld Vametco (being all of the ordinary shares in Bushveld Vametco not currently owned by the Group) from the Seller. Following the Acquisition (assuming it is approved by Shareholders at the GM), the Company will hold 100 per cent. of the issued share capital of Bushveld Vametco and, through Bushveld Vametco, will own 78.8 per cent. of Strategic Minerals Corporation. Strategic Minerals Corporation is the intermediate holding company that owns a 75 per cent. interest in the Vametco Vanadium Mine.

 

The initial consideration for the Acquisition is US$11.1 million which will be satisfied through the issue of the Consideration Shares and US$4.5 million in cash by the Company to the Seller. In addition, there will be two deferred payments of US$0.6 million following publication of the Vametco Holdings accounts for the year ended 31 December 2018 and 2019 and a further payment calculated by reference to the EBITDA of Vametco Holdings in 2020 following publication of the Vametco Holdings accounts for the year ended 31 December 2020.
