Atlantis Resources Limited
(“Atlantis” or the “Company”)
Launch of Bond
Atlantis, a global leader in the renewable energy sector, is pleased to announce the formal launch through Abundance Investment Limited, the provider of a regulated green peer-to-peer investment platform, of a proposed five-year bond which matures in 2023. The bond has a coupon of 8%, payable semi-annually. The bond offer seeks to raise a minimum of £2 million and a maximum of £5 million, and is expected to close in Q1 2018.
Subject to completion of the bond offer, the proceeds of the issue will be used to progress and accelerate the development of the best opportunities in the Atlantis project pipeline, including the recently announced Uskmouth power station conversion and the Wyre tidal gateway project, to repay some more expensive debt, and to provide general working capital for the Atlantis group. The issuing entity is a newly-incorporated, wholly owned UK based subsidiary of the Company, and the bonds, which are unsecured, will benefit from a parent company guarantee from Atlantis. The bonds will otherwise have the same terms as the £5 million 8% bonds due 2022 issued via the Abundance platform in July 2017.
Tim Cornelius, CEO, Atlantis Resources Ltd, said:
“As we embark on our transformational deal with SIMEC and the GFG Alliance to create a global, diversified renewable energy platform, this bond offer represents a chance for ordinary investors to help Atlantis to grow and share in our future financial success. The bonds will help us commence work on transformational projects such the Uskmouth power station conversion and the Wyre tidal gateway project. These bonds will help us achieve our ambition of becoming one of the largest and most diversified renewable energy companies on the London Stock Exchange”
