Latin Resources Ltd (ASX:LRS) is offering shareholders the opportunity to increase their shareholding in the company at a discount to the record date market price without incurring brokerage or other transaction costs.

The volume-weighted average price (VWAP) of Latin’s shares for the month of December 2018 was 0.32 cents, and the SPP price of 0.2 cents represents a discount of 38% to this.

Latin’s board noted that the company’s present share price is at a record low, which gives shareholders the opportunity to purchase shares at a price which the company believes significantly undervalues its current asset portfolio.
