Shareholders are advised that due to the divergent treatment of changes to the Company's International Securities Identification Number ("ISIN") across the ASX, AIM and the JSE Limited ("JSE"), arising from the change in the Company's name, a temporary suspension of trading in the Company's ordinary shares on AIM, from 4 June 2018, and the JSE, from 5 June 2018, will be sought until Friday, 8 June 2018 in both instances. During these respective periods of suspension, the Company's registrars, Computershare Investor Services, will be unable to transfer any shares between the Australian, United Kingdom or South African registers and dealings, settlements and transfers in CREST will also be suspended.

The Company's share/ticker code on all three exchanges will change to EUZ and the short name on the JSE will be Euromet. The Company's new ISIN will be announced in due course.
