Backstop arrangements for the Investment in Mustang Energy PLC


Further to the announcements of 19 January and 28 February 2022, Primorus Investments plc (AIM: PRIM) provides an update in relation to its investment in Mustang Energy PLC ("MUST").


Primorus has been issued with Convertible Loan Notes ("CLNs") in Bushveld Minerals Limited ("BMN") pursuant to the previously announced Backstop arrangements and further to BMN's election to issue CLNs. The CLNs are convertible into ordinary shares in the capital of BMN ("BMN Shares").



The conversion mechanism for the CLNs was set out in the Company's announcement of 19 January 2022, and the relevant details to supplement it are:

·      The principal amount of US$1,500,000 plus accrued and unpaid interest (as at 25 March) of US$136,849 (total $1,636,849).

·      The above amount has been converted into £GBP at an agreed exchange rate of 1.3589 USD/GBP which means the CLNs are worth £1,208,988.

·      At the agreed BMN share price of £0.098987 the CLNs (as at 25 March 2022) would equate to 12,213,607 BMN Shares if they were all converted.

·      If Primorus issues a conversion notice, the loan notes will convert into shares in the capital of BMN.


Primorus has noticed the increased price of vanadium in recent weeks and believes BMN is well placed to capitalise on this.


Concurrent with completion of the CLN transaction with BMN, the Company no longer has an interest in MUST.
