Trending this week
After their last fund raise in September, of £550,000 at 15.5 pence. The last thing on a lot of peoples minds was a fund raise. CloudTag Inc raised £4.1 million this week by issuing senior unsecured zero coupon convertible notes to an unnamed overseas institutional investor, with a 12-month term and issued at 10% discount to their nominal value of £4.5 million. CloudTag also said it has received a non-binding purchase order for its product from its European distributor Second Chance Ltd. The order, for which a delivery date still needs to be agreed, would have a value of £880,000.
CloudTag said that, while Second Chance is unlikely to achieve its order commitment of US$5.2 million in 2016, it is inclined to extend the agreement with Second Chance into 2017, as there were mitigating factors such as its decision in September to move its manufacturing to a larger manufacturer.
Is this after recent highs an opportunity to attract new investors? Would you have liked to see alternative funding options? With the second tranche of the shares needing shareholder approval will you be voting for or against this? Let me know on #STAG and tag me in @slarratt1
Mosman Oil & Gas Ltd (MSMN)
Mosman Oil & Gas Ltd said it has agreed to acquire an 80% stake in a producing oil asset in the United States this week.
Mosman, through its newly-formed Cue Energy Resources Ltd subsidiary, will buy an 80% stake in the Pine Mills oil field in Wood County, Texas. It will pay $975,000 in cash to acquire the asset.
The field has 15 producing wells and oil production in excess of 100 barrels per day for the past four months at the site. With Pine Mills proven reserves of 373,000 barrels and with all of the equipment and infrastructure needed to operate the field, is this a good mid term production prospect? What other mews flow is expected? Your thoughts and comments please on #STMSMN and tag me in @slarratt1
Covered by Steve Shares in September, with the shareprice in the very low teens, it seemed to be under priced based against the expected news flow. This week Chinese company Hytera Communications Corp confirmed it is holding preliminary talks about a takeover bid. Holders are discussing potential prices that could be offered. With the historical share price over the last year being around £1 what do holders and traders hope to see in relation to any offer that may be tabled? Your thoughts and comments please on #STSEPU
My thought of the week
This week has seen the news that the person dubbed the most powerful person on the planet ‘The president of the United States of America’ is Donald Trump. After shaky starts to the markets they rallied and normal service was resumed. This I think was not expected by many and the shock all over media showed the picture. As compared to Brexit there was no scaremongering as to the economy will fail if the vote went one way or the other. One thing people have not picked up on is that with the worlds economy’s being in the doldrums since the 2007 era is now the time to see what he can do to help their economy as a proven business man? People have possibly forgotten that during the crashes our own government went to seek advice from Sir Alan Sugar, now they have the American equivalent leading from the front how do envisage his term? During his term will we see Brexit take effect and have a shift in the major markets worldwide? Are their any markets or sectors that will outperform others? Are you seeking safe havens during these changes away from the status quo of leaderships?

What’s On Next…
URU Metals (URU)
I covered URU Metals and I have been passed a roundup of the share, people are still questioning the cashflow situation going forward, what are your thoughts?
-23.17% of the voting Ordinary shares is not held in public hands.
-Last Placings at 1.5p and 0.4p majority taken by the BOD/connected parties
-Initially a three way JV with URU, SAN and UMNEX. In 2013 SAN and UMNEX had a dispute and the project put on hold. URU acted as mediator and agreed deals with SAN and then UMNEX to take the project 100%. The SAN holding the JV has been ascribed to URU and URU agreed a deal UMNEX for payment in cash and shares for $1.35m for the remaining 15%. Implies minimal project value in 2014 at $9m.
-Own 100% of Ziebediela upon government approval of transfer of 15% UMNEX shares to URU. UMNEX have already been paid equivalent $1.35m by URU in cash/shares for this.
-Following this any financing needs to be at a minimum 1.5p
-37mt Nickel based on 500mt indicated and another 1.1m inferred tonnes.
-Company have been on record to transform the project economics by:-
-NPV doesn’t include significant iron concentrate/magnetite potential which is being evaluated but no complex processing or untested recovery procedures will be needed. “shareholders will benefit substantially from the additional cash we aim to generate from the magnetite by-product we will recover”
Converting part of the 1.1bn tonnes ore from inferred to indicated
NPV only based on section of licence evaluating and working on upgrading the inferred resource, , increasing the size and pit depth beyond the current depth
-It is the 12th Largest Nickel Mine in the WORLD on current resource, potentially in worlds top ten in the world upon conversion of part of inferred to indicated
-low quartile cost, opencast nickel project
-From the links URU were to apply to convert its exploration licences to mining licences early in 2017. This suggests the project has interest and once approval for the remaining 15% UMNEX shares to URU then deals will be on the table quickly
-Philippine nickel exports are expected to drop by 30%. Same thing happened with Indonesia years back and Nickel price increased by 50%
-FX rate changes – £ fell 30% to the $ since PFS, that converts NPV to higher market valuation
-As per last finals “a comprehensive project update on its flagship property Zebedielia will be provided by the end of October 2016”
-Old PFS study, CAPEX and OPEX at $3.88 lb (approx $8k per tonne) , Nickel currently $4.65 lb (approx. $10k per tonne). The plan is for a 20,000 tonne of nickel to be produced, $2k profit per tonne x 20,000 = $40m
-NPV8 in 2014 at $14k per tonne is $1bn. At $10k per tonne and including the magnetite by product, the potential movement of resource from inferred to indicated, the fx rate changes, the NPV could easily be $700m – $1bn.
-a joint venture between South African Nickel and BSC Resources
-previous exploration of this site by Gold Fields and Falconbridge identified several shallow disseminated nickel targets and three deeper massive sulphide nickel targets.
– Three major targets have already been identified on the property and believed to be Zebediela’s twin sister
