What we aim
VisionVirgin Gold, as well as being a truly enterprising and ambitious corporation, retains realistic and achievable expectations. Currently a global niche player, our long term vision is to become an industry leader in gold mining, manufacturing and trading sectors.
We aim to achieve this through cooperation, joint ventures, partnerships, acquisitions and exploration across all geographical locations. Virgin Gold aims to raise 3 to 5 billion dollars of working capital through issuing new Convertible Preferred Stocks to the global community within the next few years.
MissionOur corporate mission is to build a sustainable mining business that consistently delivers top earning per share to stockholders while leading in terms of safety, environmental stewardship and corporate responsibility.
IPOWhile an Initial Public Offering (IPO) is an interesting and lucrative proposal, it is not part of our short term goal. We are currently comfortable as a private corporation because it allows us more room in which to grow and compete. Based in a tax and business friendly offshore jurisdiction, Virgin Gold is better-placed and more flexibly able to invest in many onshore operations than its bigger peers. Our short term goal is to grow this corporation into a global industry leader and return good and consistent dividends to shareholders.
However, going public remains our medium term priority. We foresee ourselves launching an IPO by year 2015 if the environment is conducive. It will be very interesting when this materializes since millions of our private shareholders will hold public listed shares. Virgin Gold Convertible Preferred Stockholders will be able to convert their shares into public traded common shares. The shares to which they currently subscribe with Virgin Gold will potentially appreciate several times over after the IPO.
