Rolf Gerritsen, Chief Executive Officer of Cobra Resources Plc (LON:COBR) Interview

Rolf Gerritsen, Chief Executive Officer of Cobra Resources, said: “The last decade has seen a significant lack of investment in development projects in natural resources. We see this as an opportunity.

Cobra Resources listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange (15th November 2018) first day of dealing.


Cobra has been formed to take advantage of certain attractive supply and demand dynamics going on in the natural resources environment by identifying and investing in one or two quality advanced but undervalued projects, which the Board believes have the potential to create shareholder value.

“The funds raised from the IPO will be used to evaluate any potential acquisition target with a focus in base and precious metals, where the Directors feel most of the opportunities lie and where Cobra can add value.

We are offering a clean cash shell listed on the London Stock Exchange Main Market and there are not many listed cash shells that have no legacy issues. “Our board has a combined 100 years of experience and while we have the expertise to look at markets and projects, we recognise that when we find the right projects, we also need to have the right management in place.”
