Why does the Centaur Group need the money?

The proceeds from the Centaur Natural Resources Bond will be utilised by the Centaur Group to expand current mining operations in South Africa.

Why don’t you raise the money from the banks?

The bank interest rates in South Africa are generally between 8-10% on the South African Rand. Local banks within South Africa generally only lend in South African Rand as South Africa has reserve bank controls on its, and other, currencies. Centaur prefers its funding exposure to be in USD, which reduces the options for traditional bank financing within South Africa and allows Centaur to raise funds from the bond market(s).

What happens if any part of the Centaur Group goes bust?

To protect Bondholders, the Bonds are issued by Centaur Group Finance Ltd (“CGF”) acting in respect of its ‘segregated account’ #1 ‘Centaur Natural Resources Bond’ (the “Issuer”). The Issuer’s only activities will be to issue the Centaur Natural Resources Bonds and repay the interest and capital to Bondholders in accordance with the terms of the Offering Memorandum and Deed Poll.
