Quotes from the Company and the MSE


“We are very pleased to add to our substantial Mongolian investor base with the closure of this MSE financing,” said Peter Akerley, Erdene’s President and CEO. “During my recent visit to Mongolia I met with many of our stakeholders. I would like to thank our long-time shareholders for their continued support and welcome our new shareholders to an exciting period in Erdene’s growth. Funds from the offering will be used for construction of our high-grade, open-pit Bayan Khundii Gold Project and to continue exploration in our Khundii Gold District.”


“We would like to congratulate Erdene on its successful Mongolian Stock Exchange offering,” said Altai Khangai, CEO of the MSE. “As the first Company to have cross-listed on the Mongolian and Toronto Stock Exchanges, Erdene has demonstrated the important role that local capital markets play in financing mineral developments in Mongolia.”


Offering Terms


Pursuant to the offering, the Company issued 17,484,662 common shares at a price of MNT815 (C$0.36) per share for gross proceeds of approximately US$5 million. The offering was led by BDSec SC JSC, with Mandal Capital Markets SC and Tavan Bogd Capital SC acting as co-underwriters. The Common Shares were issued under a prospectus prepared pursuant to Mongolian laws. The Company paid a cash commission of 7% of the gross proceeds to the underwriters of the offering. The offering was oversubscribed by 46%, however, the Company limited the issuance to 17,484,662 shares, which were distributed to subscribers pro-rata.


Erdene intends to use the net proceeds of the offering for the continued development of its 100%-owned Bayan Khundii Gold Project, the delineation of the recent Ulaan and Dark Horse gold discoveries, additional exploration activities within the Khundii Gold District, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
