Stellantis Completes First US$15 Million Equity Investment In Element 25

Element 25 Limited (E25 or Company) (ASX:E25) is pleased to advise the conditions precedent for the first investment tranche by global automaker Stellantis N.V. (Stellantis) comprising a US$15 million share placement in E25 have now been satisfied and this transaction has been completed.


  • Global automaker Stellantis has completed a US$15 million (A$22.6M at A$1 per share) first investment in Element 25 after conditions of the companies’ agreement announced on 9 January 2023 were satisfied
  • E25 will use proceeds from the investment towards its development of a battery-grade high purity manganese sulphate monohydrate (HPMSM) facility in the USA
  • The agreement between Stellantis and E25 combines take or pay commitments for the supply of 45kt of HPMSM from the facility over five years and further funding of US$15M structured as a pre-payment agreement to be repaid out of HPMSM supplied to Stellantis
  • E25 also has an agreement to supply General Motors’ USA Ultium Battery Plants with HPMSM, which includes a US$85M loan facility, taking E25 project commitments to US$115M.
In accordance with the terms of the agreement, E25 has issued 22,569,967 shares to Stellantis at A$1.00 per share for total proceeds of A$22,569,967. E25 will use proceeds for planned engineering and construction activities to advance its proposed USA-based high purity manganese sulphate monohydrate (HPMSM) processing facility (Facility) which it plans to build in Louisiana, USA.

This follows E25’s announcement on 9 January 2023 of the signing of a binding agreement (Agreement) with Stellantis to supply battery-grade HPMSM from E25’s proposed facility in Louisiana.

E25’s Agreement with Stellantis combines take-or-pay offtake commitments for 45Kt of HPMSM from the facility over five years with US$30M in two tranches of project funding towards the facility capital cost. Tranche 1 of the funding comprises a US$15M equity investment in E25. The further key commercial terms are outlined in detail in Appendix A to the announcement in January1.

Completion of the first investment tranche represents an important step in the overall project financing, and in conjunction with E25’s recently announced US$85M financing facility with General Motors2, now takes project commitments to US$115M from two leading global electric vehicle manufacturers.
