Funds raised are earmarked for exploration and development of Stillwater’s North American nickel projects, alongside working capital and general needs.

In addition, Stillwater and Glencore have revised their investor rights agreement.

The amendment grants Glencore the right to appoint an additional board member, provided it maintains at least a 15% stake in Stillwater.

This right extends to appointing another board member if the board expands to nine or more directors, with a cap of 12 directors.

Warrants issued to Glencore include an “exercise cap”, which requires company and shareholder approval, along with TSX Venture Exchange consent, should Glencore’s shareholding exceed 19.9% upon exercising the warrants.

The warrants are valid for three years, with an acceleration clause if Stillwater’s share price exceeds $0.315 for 20 consecutive trading days.

Notably, certain directors and officers of Stillwater participated in the placement, contributing $282,399 for 2,017,142 units.
