  • Total A$15.0 million raised through Private Placement
  • Participants to receive an attaching option on a 1-for-2 basis
  • Funds raised will be invested in Mukuyu-2 well test, Mukuyu 3D seismic preparation and long leads items for next well drilling campaign at Cabora Bassa project

Invictus Energy has successfully raised A$15.0 million through an Institutional Placement to continue funding operations at its 80% owned and operated Cabora Bassa Project in Zimbabwe.

The capital will ensure the Company is well funded for a range of activities to roll out at it’s Cabora Bassa project in Northern Zimbabwe.

Earlier this month Invictus declared two gas discoveries in the Upper and Lower Angwa formations through the Mukuyu-2 well.

Funding will be utilised for a well test on gas discoveries in the Upper and Lower Angwa formations in Mukuyu-2 well, preparation for 3D seismic over the Mukuyu gas field and long lead items for a planned high impact exploration well from the Company’s extensive portfolio in the Basin Margin or Central Fairway prospects.

Private placement

Under the Placement Invictus will issue approx. 115,384,616 new fully paid ordinary shares at an issue price of A$0.13 per New Share, representing a 16% discount to the Company’s share price on 21 December 2023, the last trading date before the Placement, and a 21% discount to the five-day volume weighted average price (“VWAP”) prior to that date.

Each applicant will receive one (1) free listed IVZOA option (exercise price $0.20, expiry 7 June 2026) for every two (2) shares subscribed for and issued under the Placement, with up to 57,692,308 IVZOA options to be issued.

Invictus will also launch an Entitlement offer to all shareholders with details of the rights issue to be released to the market in January 2024.

The Placement was participated in by a range of new and existing sophisticated and institutional investors. Placement shares and attaching options will be issued under the Company’s existing ASX Listing Rule 7.1 and 7.1A placement allowance.

Use of funds

Proceeds from the capital raise will be used to fund a range of immediate and near-term activity including:

  • Mukuyu-2 well test
  • Preparation for 3D seismic over Mukuyu gas field
  • Long lead items and planning and preparation for a new high impact exploration well which will be determined following completion of interpretation of recently acquired CB23 infill seismic survey.

Managing Director Scott Macmillan commented

'We are pleased to welcome funds from institutional and sophisticated investors that will assist ongoing operations at our Cabora Bassa project.

'These funds will be invested into extending the recent success of our dual gas discoveries in the Upper and Lower Angwa formations and completion of a highly successful Mukuyu-2 drill campaign.

'Ongoing operations across the Mukuyu field will include a well test on Mukuyu-2 and preparation for a 3D seismic survey over the Mukuyu gas field.

'We are currently maturing additional drill ready prospects from our recently completed CB23 infill seismic survey, and excitingly planning for our next well location within our commanding 360,000 hectare project area.

'I thank those who continue to support Invictus Energy’s operations as we enter a much-anticipated phase of project activity at Cabora Bassa.'
