PERTH, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 6, 2016) - Bannerman Resources Limited (ASX:BMN)(NAMIBIAN:BMN) is pleased to announce that it has completed the sale of its Office Premises in Swakopmund, Namibia, augmenting Bannerman's strong cash balance post the recent equity raising.
The Company has received proceeds of approximately A$675,000 (N$6.98 million), net of sale costs. The transaction involved the sale and leaseback of the Premises on an initial two year term. This has enabled Bannerman to realise the substantial value increase on the property, whilst securing business continuity and operating cost definition.
Bannerman's cash balance at 30 November 2016 was approximately A$4.0 million. Inclusive of the sale proceeds plus the second tranche of the recent capital raising (A$500,000), committed subject to shareholder approval in January 2017, this delivers a pro-forma cash balance of approximately A$5.2 million at 30 November 2016.
This places Bannerman in a strong position to execute its strategy of further enhancing the Etango uranium project ahead of a uranium price recovery widely anticipated by market analysts and industry experts.
