European Metals Holdings Limited (LON:EMH) has reached a final agreement for Czech state power utility CEZ to take a 51% stake in the Cinovec lithium project.
The amended terms will see CEZ pay €29.1mln for its stake compared to the original proposal of €34mln.
CEZ also has two break points to withdraw from the project, which if triggered will see its investment returned minus €250,000 and costs,
The new terms provide sufficient funding for the next stage of the development of the project, Keith Coughlan, European Metals managing director said in a statement.
“Given the current uncertain state of global markets, it is particularly affirming for us to have a partner with the corporate, technical and financial strength of CEZ investing in the project," he added.
European Metal shareholders have to agree the final terms at an EGM.
