Executive Director of Lions Bay and Managing Director of CPC, Mr Bahay Ozcakmak commented:

“Following a prolonged period of under-investment in the fertility minerals sector, we believe we will be looking for a sustainable development project, which will be highly sought after by industry and strategic investors. Following our announcement in February this year that the CPC has completed a Scoping Study on the Karinga Lakes Potash Project, we have received significant interest in both CPC and its promising aMES ™ technology. In June this year, our joint venture partner at the Karinga Lakes Potash Project, Verdant Minerals was acquired by a UK based private equity firm at more than twice the prevailing market price before the acquisition was announced, highlighting the deep-value in the sector, that is gradually being recognized by astute investors. As evidenced by Parkway Minerals today, we expect the consolidation and rationalization trend in the sector to continue. In this regard, we believe the transaction between CPC and Parkway Minerals is not only well-timed, but highly synergistic as it combines complementary projects, technology and skills, and positions the merged-entity strongly as the emerging player in the fertiliser minerals sector. ”

Executive Chairman of Lions Bay, Mr John Byrne commented:

We have supported the development of CPC and its proprietary mineral processing technology over the past two years and believe this transaction with Parkway creates a company with the critical-mass required to grow the core business and execute the ambitious business plan.

“As the major vendor of CPC into the transaction, we have agreed to assist Parkway Minerals conduct a relatively modest capital raise to support the transaction. As soon as major shareholders of both the Parkway and Davenport, we look forward to supporting the various management teams, to ensure that they have a strong growth trajectory moving forward. The merger of the CPC with the Parkway announcement and the accompanying presentation, we are equally excited about the opportunity of assisting Davenport receive the recognition it deserves. Although the Davenport team has been able to systematically assemble a portfolio of projects in Central Germany, which now represents the largest potash resource in Western Europe. We are pleased to be able to expose our shareholders to such opportunities. Lions Bay is focused on strategically leveraging the experience and network of the management team in the relatively high-risk resources sector, to create value for our shareholders. This transaction highlights how the investment in Lions Bay provides the opportunity for investors to gain exposure to the formation and development of resources focused companies and benefit from the experience of the Lions Bay management team. ”
