  • Agreement to issue US$25 million of Unsecured Convertible Notes - Australia - Jervois Global Ltd. ("Jervois") (ASX:JRV) (TSXV:JRV) (OTC:JRVMF) announces it has launched a US$50 million total capital raising (the "Capital Raising"), comprising:

    • US$25 million Unsecured Convertible Notes (Notes") maturing in July 2028 which are convertible into Jervois ordinary shares ("Ordinary Shares") ("Convertible Notes Offer").

    • US$25 million fully underwritten 1 for 3.34 accelerated non-renounceable entitlement offer (the Entitlement Offer"), undertaken in parallel with the Convertible Notes Offer.

    Net proceeds from the Capital Raising will strengthen Jervois' balance sheet, improve liquidity and working capital flexibility, with cash also being applied to debt reduction. Once expected debt payments are complete, Jervois will have a proforma cash balance of US$65 million.3 The Capital Raising will support Jervois' refocused strategy to respond to historic low cobalt prices, including:

    • Continued implementation and delivery of Jervois Finland's turnaround;
