On January 24, 2017, Dundee Precious Metals Inc. ("DPM") closed its $43.7 million strategic equity investment by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development ("EBRD"). The investment was effected by way of a private placement of 17,843,120 common shares of DPM issued to the EBRD at a price of $2.45 per share. As a result of this transaction, the EBRD holds approximately 9.99% of DPM's common shares (on a non-diluted basis).
