Keras Resources plc ('Keras' or the 'Company')

Further Information Regarding Calidus Resources Ltd  ('Calidus') Shares


With the imminent distribution of Calidus Shares to Keras shareholders, the Company provides the following guidance to the Australian stock market protocols and some options for holding shares.


Key points:


·  The Calidus share registrar is The Automic Group ('Automic'), which can be contacted on [email protected] or +61 (0) 2 9698 5414.


·   Post the demerger, Keras shareholders on the Record Date* will be issued with a Security-Holder Reference number ('SRN') by Automic, which must be quoted when trading in Calidus shares. The SRN will be included on a Holding Statement that will be posted to the shareholder's registered address.


·   Shareholders who hold their ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each in Keras ('Keras Shares') through a Nominee account with their stockbroker, i.e. a broking account where their Keras Shares are not directly registered in their own name, will not be issued with an SRN. Instead, the Nominee company will receive a single SRN for all the Calidus shares that Nominee company holds. The Nominee may be able to hold these shares for the account of individual shareholders and trade on the ASX; however each Keras shareholder will need to determine this for his or her individual circumstances.


·    If individual shareholders who hold Keras Shares through a Nominee company want to transfer their Calidus shares to their own name, they will have to execute a simple off-market transfer form with their Nominee company whereby the Calidus shares will be transferred to the individual, who will be issued with a new SRN. Off-market forms can be found at  Any queries regarding this form should be directed to Automic.


·  Euroz Securities ('Euroz'), headquartered in Perth, Australia, has offered to assist new Calidus shareholders to set up an account to hold individually registered shares. There is no setup or holding cost associated with such an account. The process is very simple and can be completed online. For more information, please contact Paul Berson at Euroz on email [email protected] or +61 89346 0328. 


* The Record Date is expected to be on or about 19 November 2019 and the Company will notify the firm date by Regulatory Information System prior to the Demerger becoming effective.
