Nouveau Monde Graphite Inc. (" Nouveau Monde " or the " Company ") (NYSE: NMG; TSXV: NOU) today announced the pricing of its previously announced underwritten public offering (the " Offering ") of 7,000,000 of its common shares (the " Common Shares ") at a price per share of US$7.50 (the " Offering Price ") for aggregate gross proceeds of US$52,500,000. Nouveau Monde has granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1,050,000 Common Shares at the Offering Price. The Offering is expected to close on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.

Evercore ISI and BMO Capital Markets are acting as joint book-running managers for the Offering. B. Riley Securities and Stifel GMP are also acting as joint book-running managers. Roth Capital Partners is acting as co-manager for the Offering.

One of the Company's current shareholders, Pallinghurst Graphite International Limited, has indicated that it and one of its investors collectively intend to purchase 706,666 Common Shares in the Offering for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately US$5,300,000. Further, shortly following the closing of the Offering and after preliminary discussions with one of its other current shareholders, the Company plans to complete a non-brokered private placement of Common Shares for aggregate gross proceeds of up to US$13,125,000, at a price per Common Share which will not be less than the Offering Price (the " Private Placement "). Moreover, the shareholder participating in the Private Placement will have the option to purchase such number of additional Common Shares as is equal to 15% of the initial number of Common Shares under the Private Placement in the event of the full exercise of the Over-Allotment Option under the Offering (or such lesser number of Common Shares as is proportionate to any lesser exercise of the Over-Allotment Option). The Private Placement will be made pursuant to an exemption from Canadian prospectus requirements and the Common Shares issued thereto will be subject to restrictions on resale for a period of four months and one day from the closing of the Private Placement under applicable Canadian securities legislation. Closing of the Private Placement and of the Offering are not conditional upon each other.

The Company expects the net proceeds of the Offering and the Private Placement to be used towards the development of the Matawinie mine project and LiB anode plant project and for general working capital and corporate expense needs.

In connection with the Offering, Nouveau Monde has filed a preliminary prospectus supplement and will file a final prospectus supplement (together, the " Prospectus Supplement ") to the Company's existing base shelf prospectus filed in Canada (the " Base Shelf Prospectus ") and the Company's United States registration statement on Form F-10 (the " Registration Statement ") filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the " SEC ") under the U.S.-Canada multijurisdictional disclosure system (MJDS). The Offering is being made in the United States and in each of the provinces of Canada.

About Altech Chemicals Ltd:

Altech Chemicals Limited (ASX:ATC) (FRA:A3Y) is aiming to become one of the world's leading suppliers of 99.99% (4N) high purity alumina (Al2O3) through the construction and operation of a 4,500tpa high purity alumina (HPA) processing plant at Johor, Malaysia. Feedstock for the plant will be sourced from the Company's 100%-owned kaolin deposit at Meckering, Western Australia and shipped to Malaysia.

HPA is a high-value, high margin and highly demanded product as it is the critical ingredient required for the production of synthetic sapphire. Synthetic sapphire is used in the manufacture of substrates for LED lights, semiconductor wafers used in the electronics industry, and scratch-resistant sapphire glass used for wristwatch faces, optical windows and smartphone components. Increasingly HPA is used by lithium-ion battery manufacturers as the coating on the battery's separator, which improves performance, longevity and safety of the battery. With global HPA demand approximately 19,000t (2018), it is estimated that this demand will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30% (2018-2028); by 2028 HPA market demand will be approximately 272,000t, driven by the increasing adoption of LEDs worldwide as well as the demand for HPA by lithium-ion battery manufacturers to serve the surging electric vehicle market.
