Polo evaluates strategic options with respect to its investment in

GCM Resources plc



Polo Resources Limited (AIM and TSX: POL) announces that following a review by its Independent Investment Committee, the Company has retained advisers to evaluate strategic options with respect to its shareholding in GCM Resources plc ("GCM").

As at today's date, Polo holds 15,220,985 ordinary shares in GCM, representing approximately 29.82% of the issued ordinary share capital of GCM.


Neil Herbert, Executive Co-Chairman and Managing Director of Polo said:


"Polo Resources is currently evaluating options with its advisers with respect to its stake in GCM. Polo is of the view that there are partnership opportunities which it can negotiate with strategic parties who would be critical to the development of the world class Phulbari coal deposit through participation on an appropriate basis with Polo. Polo remains convinced of the significant value potential in GCM and through this process will seek to unlock such value over and above that currently being assigned to GCM by the stock market."
