Keliber appoints financial advisors for project financing
Nordic Mining’s associated company, Keliber Oy (“Keliber”), has appointed Carnegie Investment Bank AB and Nordea Bank Abp as advisors for the equity financing of its lithium project. Together with Keliber, the advisors will explore different financing options, including a possible Initial Public Offering (“IPO”).
Some months ago, Keliber appointed Northcott Capital Ltd. as the coordinator of the debt financing of the project. Initial contact has been established with relevant banks and other potential sources of debt financing, and assessment of opportunities are ongoing.
“The appointment of financial advisors marks the start of the final phase towards construction for Keliber’s lithium project. Keliber is a pioneer in the production of lithium for battery production in Europe,” says Nordic Mining’s CEO Ivar S. Fossum.
