Following the receipt of shareholder approval, Huayou Cobalt will be issued a further 13,412,597 shares and, together with its Tranche 1 shares, will have a 14.76% interest in Nzuri Copper (assuming no other shares are issued).

Huayou Cobalt will also be entitled to nominate one representative to the board of Nzuri, subject to all necessary consents and the satisfaction of the Board so long as its holding does not fall below 10% for 90 consecutive days, or a change of control event occurring with respect to Nzuri.
