It said that the fundraising was to be constituted by the issue of both new ordinary shares and secured convertible loan notes. The notes would have a three-year term, a 9.0% per annum coupon rate payable quarterly and could be converted into equity at anytime at the holder's election.

Ceramic Fuel Cells reported that the issue price of the new ordinary shares and the conversion price for the loan notes would be 2.14p per share.

In addition to the funds, the company said that it expected to receive a further AUD 5.0m (£3.3m) in cash from the Australian Government around the middle of the year in relation to a tax refund.

This amount arose as a refundable credit in relation to the company's fiscal year research and development expenditure that was claimable for tax purposes, the company said.

Ceramic Fuel Cells' share price was down 0.53% to 3.73p at 12:27 on Tuesday.
