Since then, considerable progress has been made on the structure of the transaction and the advancement of the assets, a key component of which has been the successful completion of a pre-IPO financing which is announced today, together with further information in respect of next stage plans.

As noted in the announcement of 10 March 2023, Sean Wade, Chief Executive Officer of Power Metal Resources plc, is a director of Teathers Financial plc. Mr Wade is also a shareholder in Teathers Financial Plc.

PRE-IPO HIGHLIGHTS

-      Teathers/UEE has conditionally raised approximately £421,500 through a Pre-IPO financing ("Financing") undertaken at 1.241135p per Teathers new ordinary share ("Ordinary Share").

 

-      Completion of the Financing is subject only to approval of Teathers' shareholders at General Meeting, arrangements for which are being finalised.

 

-      The capital raised enables Teathers/UEE to self-finance its operations including its planned IPO advisory costs, corporate expenses and various project expenditures.

 

-      No warrants are included automatically with the Financing, however should warrants be offered as part of the planned IPO placing, participants in this Pre-IPO financing will receive warrants on the same terms.

 

FURTHER HIGHLIGHTS

-      With the pre IPO Financing work complete, Teathers/UEE is now moving to execute on further corporate initiatives in advance of its planned Q1/Q2 2024 listing on the London capital markets ("IPO listing").

 

-      Based on the Teathers/UEE pre-IPO valuation and planned conditional disposals by Power Metal of the Reitenbach and E-12 uranium properties into Teathers/UEE, it is currently anticipated that upon completion of the planned acquisitions by Teathers/UEE and its IPO listing, Power Metal is expects to hold a significant interest in the newly listed vehicle.

 

-      Further updates are expected shortly in relation to the Power Metal's uranium focused portfolio.

 

Sean Wade, Chief Executive Officer of Power Metal Resources plc, commented: 

"I am very pleased to be able to report positive progress towards the UEE IPO. Current market conditions are not conducive to capital raising, and the fact that Teathers/UEE have outperformed expectations in this regard is further validation of investor interest in new uranium focused opportunities.

I look forward to the planned IPO of UEE with a high quality collection of uranium interests and an exciting period of exploration ahead.

Further updates will be provided to shareholders as material progress occurs."
