Imperial X Plc
(“Imperial X” or the “Company”)
ADMISSION TO TRADING ON THE MAIN MARKET, CLOSING OF THE £2 MILLION FUNDRAISING & FIRST DAY OF DEALINGS
Imperial X Plc (LSE: CDL), a natural resource project generator, is pleased to announce that its entire issued ordinary share capital consisting of 389,565,060 ordinary shares of £0.001 will today be admitted to the Official List (by way of Standard Listing under Chapter 14 of the Listing Rules) and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's Main Market for listed securities (together, the "Admission"). Dealing will commence at 8:00 a.m. today, Thursday 3rd June 2021, under the ticker “CDL” (ISIN: GB00B44LQR57). The Company has filed an application to change its name to Cloudbreak Discoveries Plc, however, due to Covid-19 related delays, this is not expected to become effective for approximately two weeks and a further announcement will be made to confirm the change.
Successful £2 million fundraising at 3p per share which was oversubscribed
With effect from Admission, Imperial X will hold equity positions and royalties in a variety of projects in the natural resources sectors across multiple jurisdictions, primarily in North America and Africa
Imperial X provides European investors with a business model and range of assets which to date has been a largely untapped opportunity in Europe
The Directors believe the model is capable of bringing investors a high level of scalability and excellent returns while not compromising the level of risk being undertaken
Imperial X has the ability to pivot between commodities for the best prospects and opportunities but has a core focus on bulk, industrial and base materials and metals with an early focus on critical metals for the ongoing electrification revolution
The proceeds of the Fundraising will be used to pursue the Group’s immediate objective of developing its existing portfolio of assets and interests and acquiring suitable additions and provide working capital to cover ongoing annual operating costs
Imperial X’s business model is not constrained by geographic location or commodity, allowing it to diversify its range of assets and partners
Kyler Hardy, CEO of Imperial X Plc, commented, “Listing on the Standard Segment of the Official List represents a significant milestone for the Company. This listing offers investors first mover advantage to be a part of a project generator and royalty business model which is well established in North American capital markets but remains largely untapped across Europe.
“The Company will deploy our business model to acquire undervalued assets in the global natural resources sectors and partner them with exceptional partners. Utilising the Board and management’s technical and transactional experience across deal structures, commodities, and jurisdictions, we have the flexibility to pivot our investments to the best prospects and opportunities. Our exposure to a diverse range of commodities, across multiple jurisdictions significantly de-risks our portfolio and creates true shareholder value.
“As we now join the Main Market, I look forward to scaling up the business through a pipeline of acquisitions. I am proud of what we have achieved in getting to this point and am excited about expanding our portfolio and providing strong returns for new and existing investors.”
