About Altech Advanced Materials AG

Altech Advanced Materials AG ("AAM") is planning to invest up to 49% in Altech Chemicals' subsidiary, Altech Chemicals Australia PTY LTD ("Altech Australia") for up to $100 million.

Altech Australia is building a production plant for high-purity alumina (99.99%; 4N HPA) for 4,500 tons p.a. in Malaysia and also has its own deposit for mining the main raw material kaolin. 4N HPA is required, among other things, for the production of LED lights and as a separator for lithium-ion batteries, which are needed, for example, for electric vehicles and smartphones. Demand for 4N HPA is expected to grow by an average of 30% p.a. until 2028, according to market studies. Altech Australia's proprietary process allows HPA to be manufactured as a cost leader, as the HPA can be extracted directly from kaolin. This enables production without the use of energy-intensive aluminum. The purchase of the production volume for the first 10 years has been secured by an off-take agreement with Mitsubishi Australia and the production capacity and quality is guaranteed by the German plant manufacturer SMS group GmbH from Düsseldorf, which has also agreed to provide equity capital for the Altech HPA project.

The total project has a remaining investment volume of approximately USD 390 million, of which KfW-IPEX Bank has already committed USD 190 million under certain conditions and SMS group GmbH has already made an equity commitment of USD 10 million. Altech Chemicals Limited is currently in discussions with mezzanine capital lenders regarding the provision of USD 90 million in. The remaining USD 100 million is to be provided by AAM.
