Sigma Lithium (TSXV: SGML) this morning announced a bizarre move. The company, despite reporting that it is has entered “contractual and detailed structural negotiations” with groups related to its strategic review, has elected to list its subsidiary Sigma Brazil on both the Nasdaq as well as the Singapore Stock Exchange.

The listing is said to help attain “optimal structural flexibility and maintain competitiveness of the process,” and the company expects it to maximize shareholder value if the alternative selected under the ongoing strategic review only involve Sigma Brazil.

Listing of Sigma Brazil, which as of the most recent financial statements was wholly owned by Sigma Lithium, comes despites Sigma Lithium already being listed on the Nasdaq. The subsidiary currently owns all assets of the company that are located in Brazil, which is believed to be substantially all of the firms assets, including interests in four mineral properties. Those properties consist of Grota do Cirilo, Sao Jose, Santa Clara, and Genipapo.
