MPA’s Role and Key Considerations

  • Poderosa’s shareholder Ccori Apu was introduced to Ascot Resources during the PDAC 2022 when broader discussion began, and the idea of a strategic partnership was established
  • MPA’s deal team together with its partner firm SUMMA in Peru advanced discussion in Peru outlining various merits for a transaction as well as representing to Ascot the benefits of securing a strategic partner at this stage of the company
  • MPA was engaged by Ascot Resources as an Advisor with respect to its proposed offering of securities to Ccori Apu by way of a private placement, to define deal terms and execute in an expeditiously manner


  • Ccori Apu relied on MPA’s mining deal experience in Canada while Ascot Resources relied on MPA determining the best financing structure 
  • Ascot Resources announced the completion of the strategic equity investment by Ccori Apu of $45 million, a portion of which was structured as Canadian Development Expenditures flow through shares, equating to gross proceeds of $50 million
