Market Update

 

LONDON, 15 August 2014 - On 14 July 2014, Tungsten Corporation plc (LSE:TUNG) outlined that it was exploring debt-funding opportunities for Tungsten Bank, Tungsten Network Finance and the Tungsten Group as a whole. Today, Tungsten is announcing that it made an application to the British Business Bank for a potential investment of up to £50 million in matched funding in support of a debt placement by Tungsten Corporation plc. The British Business Bank is a UK government-owned financial institution focused on improving finance markets for smaller businesses. Tungsten has now entered discussions with a number of institutional investors in this regard and has also progressed discussions with a range of other third parties to support its invoice financing activities.

 

Shareholders will be kept informed as the Company finalises its funding to accelerate the growth of the business. There can be no guarantee that Tungsten will be able to secure such debt financing.
