quarter 2019 revenues of USD 36.4 million. EBITDA for the third quarter was a

EBITDA loss, interest payments of USD 1.5 million, and a currency loss of USD

Men hvis de vil ha en IPO med 400 mill dollar for Butte så blir det ganske mye mer å spytte inn for oss om vi ønsker samme eierandel der som i REC. Mange av oss har bundet for mye kapital fra før.
