The natural resource investor said it would place around 70mln new shares at a price of 1.45p each, a 12% premium to its last close price of 1.3p.
The firm added that for every two placing shares it would issue a warrant entitling the holder to one new share exercisable at a price of 2p during a two-year period from the date of the placing share’s admission.
Metal Tiger added that it had also signed a non-binding term sheet with Sprott Capital Partners LP to complete a non-brokered private placement to raise up to £3mln at the same placing price of 1.45p.
Each share issued in the Sprott offering would entitle the holder to a warrant for a new share exercisable at 2p during the two-year period from admission of the Sprott shares.
The Sprott offering is expected to close on 8 March 2019.
Michael McNeilly, chief executive of Metal Tiger, said the placing would enable the company to “enter into constructive negotiations with Kalahari Metals, regarding the company potentially providing further financing for proposed exploration drilling at the Okavango and Ngami projects”, adding that the £3mln from the Sprott offering would “provide yet further support to our strategy”.
Shares were up 3.8% at 1.35p.
