CARU is the holder of the Orom Graphite Project in Uganda.  The consideration payable to CRA and New Energy for the Transaction is the issue of 33,333,333 New Ordinary Shares giving a price of 6 pence.  CARU will be locked up for a total of 24 months via a "hard" 12 month lock up period and   subsequent 12 month "soft" lock in period whereby they will be required to both obtain the consent of the broker and trade through the broker in an orderly manner.



Following the completion of the Placing, the Company and its advisers will finalise the Transaction with its professional advisers and seek to obtain clearance from the FCA to publish a prospectus and convene the Annual General Meeting ("AGM") which is anticipated in February 2020 and is required to approve the Transaction and the Placing. The Company is targeting to commence trading on the standard list of the London Stock Exchange immediately following the AGM.


A further announcement setting out additional details of the Transaction and expected timetable to re-admission to trading on the London Stock Exchange will be issued in due course.
