INCLINE VILLAGE, NV / ACCESSWIRE / February 19, 2020 / American Battery Metals Corporation (OTCQB:ABML) ( "the Company"), an advanced technology battery recycling and resource production company based in Nevada, today announced significant strategic capital investment for the Company.
Doug Cole, the Chief Executive Officer of American Battery Metals Corporation, stated, "American Battery Metals Corporation has received a commitment for $10 million in equity financing (the "Investment") from Newood Finance Solutions Limited, a Fiji corporation doing business as Unifinance Limited ("Unifinance), which is an affiliate of VCM Group Pty Limited ("VCM"), our EPC, Engineering, Procurement, and Construction partner. The Investment is in the form of a purchase of the Company's Series B preferred stock which is convertible into common stock of the Company at a fixed price of $0.25 per share. Unifinance has irrevocably committed to fund the entire amount of the Investment prior to April 19, 2020."
Investors are encouraged to review more details of the Investment which shall be set forth in a form 8-K filing expected to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or about February 19, 2020.
The Company intends to use the Investment proceeds to eliminate a portion of its convertible debt, construction of a new, scalable battery recycling plant in Nevada, (which is scheduled to be fully operational late 2020), and general working capital needs.
Mr. Cole continued, "This strategic investment is a major step toward attaining the Company's goals of eliminating approximately $2.5 million of convertible notes, gaining profitability, a healthier balance sheet and uplisting to a major exchange in 2020. Elimination of outstanding convertible debt shall allow the stock to trade on its own merits."
