Further details of the final terms, including the details of the investor, will be provided once final and binding transaction documents have been executed."

The Company confirms that it is evaluating the possibility of dual listing on the SEHK and, together with its advisors, is currently undertaking the preparatory work necessary to submit a listing application.

    Mr Tan said that: a listing in Hong Kong could provide an outstanding platform for growth and position Galaxy as one of the largest lithium carbonate producers in the Asia Pacific region.

    “A Hong Kong listing could represent the beginning of another exciting growth phase for the Company with potential to deliver value for existing and new Galaxy shareholders,” he said.

    “However, at this stage, no decision has been made by the Board to proceed with a listing in Hong Kong and thus to submit the listing application.” “If submitted, Galaxy will inform the market at the appropriate time and the listing application will be subject to the approval of the SEHK”.
