Proposed Acquisition of Karaberd Mine – Third Extension to 14th October 2023 of Time for Satisfaction of Conditions
IMC announces that it has agreed with Mineral Ventures Invest spol. s r.o. that the final date by which the conditions of the intended acquisition of the Karaberd Mine in Armenia (the “Acquisition”), announced on 15th April 2021, must be fulfilled has been extended until 14th October 2023.
Extensions to the fulfilment date owing to local, COVID-19 pandemic-related factors were earlier announced on 23rd December 2021 and 27th June 2022. Consequent upon the earlier delays, certain structuring and organisational measures relating to the assets the subject of the Acquisition were also delayed beyond the parties’ expectations and control, necessitating a further extension. As and when necessary, the Directors of IMC shall continue to update shareholders and the market on the progress of the proposed transaction.
