IamFire Plc - Corporate Update & Strategic Financing PR Newswire

25th June 2020

AQSE: FIRE
(“IamFire” or the “Company”)

Corporate Update & Strategic Financing

CEO & Director, Burns Singh Tennent-Bhohi statement,

“Following IamFire’s restructure and recapitalisation last year, the Board and I are reviewing a number of different strategies which complement the direction we are moulding for the Company.  This includes adding skilled senior management and Directors, as well as key long-term financial partners. 

These two together will provide the Company with valuable liquidity and the skills needed to identify and secure a strong dealflow to provide value to the Company and our shareholders.

IamFire’s focus is in three industry classes;

Natural Resources, Mining & Exploration, and Disruptive Technology.

Our core ethos is to seek, evaluate and transact opportunities exposed to the growth areas in global consumption which generate disproportionately higher capital returns on investment.  The Company will utilise non-cash dilutive instruments where possible.

During a period of heightened volatility in global financial markets, IamFire has raised gross proceeds in this financing of £500,000 which was oversubscribed.  Thank you to those existing shareholders who participated.  I also welcome our new shareholders to IamFire and thank you for your commitment.  

The completion of this financing secures the Company with strong working capital and includes the participation of a broad range of investors not normally seen in such a small company including; Family Offices, UHNWs, Investment Funds, Retail Investors, Existing Shareholders & Directors participation.  To re-enforce this point, it is critically important the Company’s register represents a diversified and robust presence, irrespective of our present market valuation.  It is rather in preparation for the Company’s future endeavours.

The Board and I look forward to providing further updates to the market as we continue to develop and streamline the Company’s corporate strategy.”
