Perth, Dec 18, 2015 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Tiger Resources Limited (ASX:TGS) ("Tiger" or the "Company") is pleased to report the successful completion of the institutional component of its accelerated entitlement offer ("Institutional Entitlement Offer") announced on 16 December 2015. The Institutional Entitlement Offer, together with the US$6 million placement to Resource Capital Funds ("RCF") completed on 17 December 2015, have raised gross proceeds of approximately US$13 million.

The Institutional Entitlement Offer received strong support from Tiger's institutional shareholders, with approximately 75% of entitlements being taken up.

The shortfall under the Institutional Entitlement Offer was oversubscribed and has been fully allocated to existing Tiger shareholders and other institutional investors. RCF subscribed for shares equivalent to its full pro rata entitlement under the Institutional Entitlement Offer.

Importantly, the RCF placement funds and the receipt of the Institutional Entitlement Offer funds will satisfy a key condition precedent to drawdown under the Taurus/IFC Senior Debt facility.
