• Share Purchase Plan launched to raise up to $10 million at $0.12 per share
• Offer carries attaching options on a one-for-two basis, exercisable at $0.20
• Funds to be put towards Mukuyu-2 appraisal and Cabora Bassa Phase 2 exploration
Invictus Energy Limited ("Invictus" or "the Company"), is pleased to announce that as
confirmed in the Company’s announcement on 6 April 2023, a Share Purchase Plan (“SPP”)
offer of up to $10 million to fund exploration and appraisal activities at the Company’s 80 per
cent owned and operated Cabora Bassa Project in Zimbabwe.
Comments from Managing Director Scott Macmillan:
“I am pleased we are able to offer existing investors the opportunity to participate in the Share
Purchase Plan under the same terms as the recently completed Private Placement with
sophisticated and institutional investors.
“It provides existing shareholders the opportunity to participate at a very attractive price, with
potential near and medium-term upside as we advance preparations for our Mukuyu-2 appraisal
and Cabora Bassa Phase 2 exploration campaigns.
“The SPP is anticipated to provide additional funding for these activities as we prepare to kick off
a fresh 2D seismic campaign this month to mature leads on trend with Mukuyu into drill ready
prospects. We also remain on track to spud the highly anticipated Mukuyu-2 appraisal well early
in the third quarter of 2023.
“The data received to date from our basin opening Mukuyu-1 exploration well, which confirmed
the presence of a working hydrocarbon system, gives us confidence in our exploration and
“The Cabora Bassa basin is one of the last untapped frontier rift basins onshore Africa and has
the potential to provide energy security not only for Zimbabwe, but the wider southern African
region, should our activities lead to a successful development.
“I look forward to providing further updates as we continue to progress our exploration and
appraisal programs and prepare to award key contracts. This is an exciting time for Invictus and its Shareholders as we progress our CB23 infill seismic program to expand our world class
exploration portfolio and the spud of the high impact Mukuyu-2 well.”
