Tungsten and lithium demand is growing alongside the global boom in battery development.
The post Up 265% in 5 days, why the Pan Asia Metals (ASX:PAM) share price is rocketing 23% today appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
The Pan Asia Metals Ltd (ASX: PAM) share price is surging again today, up 23% in afternoon trading to 63 cents per share.
Below, we take a look at the ASX critical metals explorer’s capital raising announcement issued this morning after the company exited a trading halt.
What did the lithium explorer announce?
Pan Asia Metals is rocketing higher after the company reported it has completed a $6 million private placement capital raising. Institutional and sophisticated investors took up 15 million shares at an issue price of 40 cents per share.
Viriathus Capital acted as Lead Manager.
Pan Asia Metals said it intends to raise an additional $2 million via a Share Purchase Plan (SPP). Under the SPP, existing shareholders will be offered shares at the same price of 40 cents. That’s well below the Pan Asia Metals’ current share price of 63 cents.
The company plans to use the new funds to accelerate exploration activities at its Reung Kiet and Kata Thong lithium projects, both located in Thailand.
Commenting on the capital raising, Pan Asia Metals’ managing director Paul Lock said:
The success of the placement sends a strong message that we are on the right track. Our aim is to build a suite of low cost battery and critical metal projects which provide PAM an option to extend beyond the mine gate and value add; we believe the Reung Kiet and Kata Thong lithium projects will help us achieve this.
