Bushveld Minerals (LON: BMN) has agreed the conditional disposal of Vanchem to Southern Point Resources Fund 1 for up to $40.6m. The initial consideration is $20.6m. This requires shareholder approval. Southern Point Resources is increasing the interim working capital facility it is providing that is secured on production at Vanchem. This, and a $9m working capital facility, will be offset against the initial consideration and be used to pay creditors. This will leave a cash payment to Bushveld Minerals of $3.5m when the disposal happens. The deferred consideration is based on 25% of distributable free cash flow with a minimum of $1.25m paid for each quarter of the three year period. The share price slumped 10.7% to 0.625p.
