Sprott Asset Management LP (“Sprott Asset Management”), on behalf of the Sprott Physical Battery Metals Trust (the “Trust”), announced that on September 27, 2022 a preliminary prospectus for the Trust was filed and receipted by the securities regulatory authorities of all the Canadian provinces and territories for an initial public offering (the “Offering”) of transferable, non-redeemable units (the “Units”) at a price of US$10.00 per Unit. The number of Units to be sold has not yet been determined.

The Trust is a closed-end trust established to invest and hold substantially all of its assets in physical nickel metal, cobalt metal and lithium carbonate (hereinafter, collectively “Battery Metals”). The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to purchase Battery Metals.

The Trust does not anticipate making regular cash distributions to holders of the Units.

RBC Capital Markets and Canaccord Genuity Corp. are acting as joint lead bookrunners for the Offering, and Cantor Fitzgerald Canada Corporation is acting as a joint bookrunner for the Offering.
