Graphex Group Provides Important Updates on its Global Mine-to-Battery Solution, Including the Separation of its US Subsidiary Graphex Technologies LLC into a Standalone U.S. company, and Financing for a 200% Production Increase over Current Levels

Graphex Group will be separating its U.S. graphite processing arm - Graphex Technologies LLC - as a U.S. domiciled independent player in the market as a stand-alone company, with anticipated stock consideration of US$100 million to US$200 million paid by a SPAC from the business combination transaction to be distributed to all Graphex Group shareholders.

Graphex Group Limited (“Graphex Group” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: GRFX | HKSE: 6128), together with its wholly owned U.S. subsidiary, Graphex Technologies, LLC (Graphex Tech), see the recent steps being taken by the governments of the US and China as validation of Graphex’s long-standing strategy to expand operations globally and to create separate, domestic end-to-end production ecosystems – from mine to battery – to serve both markets.

With over a decade of commercial scale production experience and proven proprietary technology and methods, the expansion in both the U.S. and China is expected to be seamless.

As of December 18, 2023, the global market capitalization of Graphex Group was approximately US$42.622 million.

Our current maximum annual production capacity is 10,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) of anode material, all processed in China.

U.S. Operations Separation

  • On December 6, 2023, Graphex Group announced the signing of an LOI with a NASDAQ-listed SPAC
  • The LOI contemplates a pre-money enterprise valuation of Graphex Technologies, Graphex Group’s US operating arm, net of liabilities, between US$100 million to US$200 million
  • Upon the completion of the intended transaction with the SPAC, the anticipated consideration of US$100 million to US$200 million in consideration shares for the separation of Graphex Tech will be distributed to all Graphex Group shareholders.
  • Upon completion of the transaction, Graphex Tech will be its own, stand-alone entity independent of Graphex Group
