What’s missing from your IPO industry assessment?

IPO activity all but stopped in 2020, as the investment community grew wary of the effects of COVID-19 on economies. No matter how deserving a business was of flotation, momentum was halted by concerns of when a ‘new normal’ of working patterns and trade would set in. Recently, sentiment has changed. Flotations picked up again during the second half of 2021, and now in 2022 the mood is decidedly optimistic. Business leaders have their eyes on fast rebounding economies, buoyant market indices and the opportunity once again to take their businesses public. As a result, global IPOs are expected to hit back this year.

The company has received commitments to raise $22.05m (A$30m) through a two-tranche structure to institutional, sophisticated and professional investors.

The move comes after the Government of Tanzania’s union cabinet granted a special mining licence for the Ngualla project to Peak’s local subsidiary PR NG Minerals.

The company will use the funding to advance with the development of the Ngualla Project and the Teesside Refinery including offtake and financing arrangements.

Peak also plans to use a portion of the proceeds to expand technical and marketing teams among other purposes.

Peak Resources managing director Bardin Davis said: “We are delighted to be welcoming new Australian and international institutional investors onto our register. The placement will support Peak as it progresses offtake, funding and development milestones for the Ngualla Project and the Teesside Refinery.

“The repayment of the ANRF Royalty Facility will clear the way for Peak to meet its commitment to transfer the Special Mining Licence into a newly registered company that will be jointly owned by Peak (84%) and the Tanzanian Government (16%).”

Under the first tranche, the company will issue 226.8 million new fully paid ordinary shares at the price of A$0.09 per share to institutional, sophisticated and professional investors.

In the second tranche, an additional 106.4 new fully paid ordinary shares at the same price will be issued.

The Ngualla Project is centred on the Ngualla Carbonatite in southern Tanzania around 147km from the city of Mbeya.

According to the Peak Resources website, the project is one of the world’s largest and highest grade undeveloped neodymium (Nd) and praseodymium (Pr) rare earth projects.
