The Margin Lending Facility agreement with a nominee of SC Lowy Primary Investments Ltd, is secured against Metal Tiger’s shares held in Sandfire Resources Limited ("Sandfire"), held under a tripartite sponsorship deed with an Australian broker.
Metal Tiger is interested in 7,036,953 Sandfire Shares representing approximately 1.72% of Sandfire’s issued share capital. As previously announced, 2,842,667 of the Sandfire Shares held by the Company are subject to an equity derivative financing arrangement with a global investment bank.
For the year ended 30 June 2022, Sandfire reported net profit of US$109.4m. As at 30 June 2022, Sandfire reported net assets of US$1,665m.
