The retail shortfall bookbuild cleared at 3 cents per shortfall share and around 153,450,307 entitlements were sold under the retail shortfall bookbuild, including about 6,398,982 entitlements taken up by eligible retail shareholders.

The remaining 93,482,951 entitlements will be allocated to and subscribed for by sub-underwriters to the entitlement offer.

Funds raised will be partly used for the cash consideration for the acquisition of Cracow Gold Mine and associated costs.
