Mr. Mark Smith, Largo’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented “We are very pleased to announce that we have repaid all amounts owing to the BNDES and the Syndicate. We would like to thank the BNDES and Syndicate for their strong support during Largo’s formative years and in helping to make us the first greenfield mining project ever to be fully financed on the debt side by Brazilian banks. The repayment represents a fundamental step in Largo’s development and will allow us to realize the benefits of our recently completed note offering through the improvement in our capital structure, reduction in interest costs and the simplification of our reporting obligations. The completion of the restructuring of our debts along with the on-going strength in V205 pricing (price range of V2O5 for the week ended July 27, 2018 of US$19.00/lb V2O5 to US$19.65/lb V2O5 as reported by the European Metal Bulletin) presents a continuing opportunity for our Company and our shareholders.”
