Once the Appointment takes effect, the Company will work to have the current suspension of trading in the Company's shares on the NEX Exchange Growth Market lifted; further announcements will be made in this regard in due course.

 

In addition to issuing the Subscription Shares as part of the Subscription the Company has agreed to issue 111,111,111 warrants to subscribe for new ordinary shares in the Company under a warrant instrument to be constituted by the Company, with an exercise price of 0.045p and a term of 90 days from the date on which the suspension on trading in the Company's shares on the NEX Exchange Growth Market is lifted.

 

The proceeds from the Subscription will be used towards creditor settlements, general working capital and towards further efforts to develop the company's trading operations in Africa, primarily focussed on Zambia at this time. 

 

The Subscription Shares, which amount to 5.59% of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company immediately after the Subscription, were issued on 14 July 2017.  The Subscription Shares rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares.

 

Following the issue of the Subscription Shares and the Fee Shares, in accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules, the Company will have 1,987,223,583 ordinary shares of no par value in issue each with voting rights.  The Company does not hold any shares in treasury.  The above figure of 1,987,223,583 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

 

African Potash Executive Chairman, Chris Cleverly, said: "This is great news for everyone involved with our business - from African farmer through to investor. This cash injection will help underpin the long-term viability of our business strategy and gives us the capital to make real progress. The appointment of Alexander David Securities as advisers allows us to work at regaining our listing on the NEX Exchange Growth Market. We are delighted that they will be working with us on the next phase of our development."
