Use of Proceeds

 

The funds raised will be used for general working capital purposes and to allow the Company to appraise further investment opportunities and to provide funds for investment.

 

Osamede Okhomina, CEO of ADM Energy, said: "We are pleased to secure funding from new and current shareholders. The funds will provide working capital and help the Company to appraise investment opportunities and to provide funds for investment that tie into our strategy to identify attractive investment opportunities in the oil and gas sector, primarily in West Africa. On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank our shareholders for their continued support and look forward to updating them as we progress."

 

Admission of the Initial Subscription Shares and General Meeting 

 

The Initial Subscription Shares have been issued utilising the Company's existing share authorities.  The further issue of 8,033,713 shares ("Conditional Subscription Shares"), raising approximately, £562,400 before expenses, is conditional on the passing of certain resolutions by shareholders at a general meeting to be convened shortly.

 

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the Initial Subscription Shares, which will rank pari passu with the Company's existing ordinary shares, to be admitted to trading on AIM. Dealings in the Initial Subscription Shares are expected to commence at 8.00 a.m. on or around 17 September 2019.

 

The Company will shortly be posting a circular to shareholders setting out the details of the subscription and convening a general meeting for the purpose of seeking shareholder consent to increase its share authorities to, inter alia, issue the Conditional Subscription Shares and the Warrants. Further details of the general meeting of the Company and the anticipated admission date of the Conditional Subscription Shares, subject to the passing of the resolutions, will be announced in due course. The Conditional Subscription Shares will rank equally in all respects with the existing ordinary shares on Admission.
