This target market determination (TMD) has been prepared by the Company in relation to the offer of Adviser Options made by the Company under the Prospectus. The Prospectus has been lodged with Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and is available on the website of the Company. Capitalised terms not defined in this TMD are as defined in the Prospectus.
The Adviser Options are being offered under the Adviser Option Offer contained in the Prospectus. The Adviser Option Offer is only be made to and capable of acceptance by invitees who receive a personalised application form to apply for Adviser Options under the Adviser Option Offer.
The Adviser Option Offer will be made under, or accompanied by, a copy of the Prospectus. Any recipient of this TMD should carefully read and consider the Prospectus in full and consult their professional adviser regarding the contents of the Prospectus. Any recipient of this TMD who wishes to acquire Adviser Options will need to complete the application form that will be in, or will accompany, the Prospectus. This TMD is not a disclosure document for the purposes of the Corporations Act and therefore has not been lodged, and does not require lodgement, with ASIC.
This TMD is not to be treated as a full summary of the product terms and conditions and is not intended to provide financial advice. Investors should refer to the Prospectus for the terms and conditions of the product and when making a decision in respect of the product.
The target market for the Adviser Options are unrelated third parties and/or their nominee(s). 1,000,000 of the Adviser Options are proposed to be issued as part of the fee payable to the Lead Manager. 1,000,000 Adviser Options are proposed to be issued to Boston Road Capital for corporate advisory and investor relations services provided to Octava.
The information below summarises the overall general class of investors that fall within the target market for the Adviser Option Offer, based on the key attributes of the product and the objectives, financial situation and needs that they have been designed to meet.
The Adviser Options have been designed for investors whose likely objectives, financial situation and needs are aligned with the product. The Company expects an investment in the Adviser Options will be suitable to investors who take a short to medium term outlook on their investment and are accustomed to making speculative investments in the mining exploration sector.
Investors with a short-term outlook for their investment will benefit from the opportunity to trade the underlying share on exercise of the Adviser Options prior to the expiry date should there be a financial benefit in exercising an Adviser Option if the exercise price is lower than the share price.
Investors with a medium term outlook will benefit from the opportunity to exercise the Adviser Options prior to the expiry date and increase their shareholding and exposure to potential upside on the Shares of the Company into the future.
An exercise price is required to be paid to acquire Shares on exercise of Adviser Options. As such the capacity to realise the underlying value of the Adviser Options could require that they be exercised on or before the expiry date. Investors in the target market will need be in a financial position to have sufficient available funds so as to facilitate an exercise of the Adviser Options prior to the expiry date. Prior to the expiry date, investors’ ability to liquidate the Adviser Options may be limited by a lack of liquidity in the trading and the price of the Shares.
It is also expected that the target market of investors will be able to withstand potential fluctuations in the value of their investment. The Adviser Options provide no income guarantee or capital protection for investors.
The Company considers that an investment in the Adviser Options and the Company generally is highly speculative, such that an investment in the Company may not be appropriate for an investor who would not be able to bear the loss of some or all of their investment. Investors should also have sufficient financial literacy and resources (including appropriate advisers) to understand and appreciate the potential risk of investing in the Company as an asset class generally and the more specific risks of investing in an ASX listed mining exploration entity and should consider the Prospectus.
The Adviser Option Offer under the Prospectus is an offer that is available to invitees who receive a personalised application form to apply for Adviser Options. The Company will include a copy of this TMD on its website and require proposed participants in the Adviser Option Offer to confirm they meet the eligibility criteria of the expected target market outlined in this TMD before they apply for Adviser Options.
The Adviser Option Offer is open for acceptance for a limited offer period set out in this Prospectus. The Adviser Option Offer will no longer be available for investment by way of issue following close of the offer period. Accordingly, this TMD applies between the commencement of the Adviser Option Offer and the issue of the Adviser Options (Offer Period).
