All the companies in the Lazarus Group of Companies are privately owned and privately funded. There is no point now - and will be no point in the next five years - when the Lazarus Board seeks external funding for any of these businesses. Lazarus will not respond to offers of funding or unwarranted solicitation. Lazarus Gold is pre-sold and so there is none available to external buyers. And, finally, Lazarus is not interested in any private placement or bank guarantee opportunities and recommends that financial brokers resist from attempting to engage in such opportunities with the Lazarus board.
