Toronto, Ontario, October 23rd , 2018 – GreenBank Capital Inc. (CSE: GBC and OTCMKTS: GRNBF and FRA; 2TL) ("GreenBank or the Company") announces that Ubique Minerals, its first portfolio company to be publicly listed has generated a return of 757% on GreenBank Capital’s investment.
In April 2017 GreenBank Capital made an initial investment of $141,178 for 35% of Ubique Minerals, and later invested a further $285,233 in the company. During the course of the 18 months prior to listing Ubique Minerals (CSE:UBQ) in September, GreenBank Capital conducted two private placements for Ubique raising a further $387,500 from third parties. In addition we assisted Ubique in conducting two drilling programs which delivered results showing the existence of high-grade Zinc deposits, and on three occasions increased the number of claims Ubique had in Daniel’s Harbour, ultimately owning 108 claims in the area. In January of 2018, shortly after completing our 43101 report, we were very pleased to appoint Dr. Gerald Harper as the CEO of Ubique Minerals.
Prior to the company’s public listing in September 2018, Greenbank Capital distributed a dividend of 6,000,000 Ubique shares to Greenbank Capital shareowners. These shareowners now not only have ownership in Ubique through GreenBank Capital, but also directly as shareowners in Ubique.
As of Friday 19th October, Ubique Capital had a market capitalization of $8.43 million with a stock price of $0.20 per share. GreenBank Capital shareowners realized a total return of 757% on GreenBank Capital’s investment in Ubique Minerals, as shown below:
ROI = (24.07% x $8,430,000) + (6,000,000 x $0.20) = 3,229.100 = 757%
($141,178 + $285,233) 426,411
David Lonsdale, the President and CEO of Greenbank Capital commented, “The public listing of Ubique Minerals is the first exit we have completed with one of our portfolio companies. Not only am I delighted that it delivered such a strong financial return to GreenBank Capital and its investors, but it also represents a clear validation of our Business Model.”
