Brazil Tungsten Holdings Update
Gunsynd Plc (AIM: GUN, NEX: GUN) announces that it has been notified by Brazil Tungsten Holdings Limited ("BTHL"), a company in which Gunsynd has a 6.18% shareholding, that it currently has very constrained working capital and in order to continue its operations in Brazil, will need to either undertake a deep discounted rights issue, which would result in a very significant dilution of Gunsynd's shareholding if Gunsynd elected not to participate, or place itself into administration, which would be likely to reduce Gunsynd's interest in BTHL to nil. A further announcement will be made in due course.
BTHL has a current written down value on Gunsynd's balance sheet of GBP400,000 and this represents approximately 17% of Gunsynd's net asset value as stated in its balance sheet for the year ended 31 July 2019 announced on 10 December 2019.
Hamish Harris, Chairman commented "This is a legacy asset that has been written down over previous periods. Gunsynd continues to concentrate on its core investments on which an update will be made in the near future"
This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014.
The Directors of Gunsynd accept responsibility for this announcement.
