Bookbuild well supported

The recent bookbuild was well supported by sophisticated and institutional investors, including Sprott and an Asia-based natural resources investment fund.

It was completed in two tranches:

  • Tranche 1, utilising the company’s available capacity under Listing rules 7.1 and 7.1A consists of 7,739,843 shares at A$0.13 per share, to raise A$1,006,179.

At the time managing director Brendan Borg said: “This capital raising ensures Tempus is well-funded for the exciting period ahead, as we commence our physical exploration programs in Canada in the coming weeks.

“We are very pleased to welcome some significant new investors to Tempus as part of this placement, as we continue to build our profile internationally and in Australia.”
