Greatland Gold Investment Update

Primorus Investments plc (AIM: PRIM, AQSE: PRIM) is pleased announce that it has completed the sales of its remaining shareholding in Greatland Gold plc ("Greatland") (AIM: GGP). The Company sold 20,000,000 shares at an average price of 23.09 pence per share, for gross proceeds of approximately £4,600,000 through a structured series of sales. As a result, the Company no longer has an interest in the shares of Greatland.

The Board of Primorus is pleased to have realised in excess of £6,500,000  over the life of its investment in Greatland having made the investment of approximately £630,000 in the company in late 2018 and early 2019.

 

The Directors intend to reinvest the proceeds of the share sales in accordance with the Company's stated investing policy.

 

Alastair Clayton, Executive Director of the Company, commented: "The Greatland Gold investment has, by any measure, been extremely successful. Having made a high-conviction investment call in late 2018, it has been hugely satisfying to watch Greatland grow to a market cap in excess of £800 million. Whilst the outlook for Greatland is extremely positive, after nearly 2 years, it is time for Primorus to realise its remaining gains and look to re-invest elsewhere in accordance with its investment mandate. Current cash reserves of Primorus now exceed the market capitalisation of the Company."
