Under the terms of the facility, Yujin Robot may issue ordinary shares to Yorkville in tranches at prices based on certain criteria at any time over a 24 month period for up to a total of KRW12bn.

We look forward to a very successful relationship with Yorkville Advisors,” adds Kyung-Chul Shin, chief executive officer of Yujin Robot.
