Panthera Resources Plc

("Panthera" or "the Company")

 

Equity Financing

 

Panthera Resources plc (AIM: PAT), the gold exploration and development company with assets in India and West Africa, is pleased to announce it has arranged an equity financing with existing and new investors for £ 349,390 ("Equity Financing").

 

The Equity Financing comprises the issue of 9,494,296 new ordinary shares ('Ordinary Shares') in the Company at a price of 3.68 pence per Ordinary Share. In addition subscribers will also receive one warrant for every two Ordinary Shares subscribed for, exercisable at a price of 6.68 pence on or before 16 December 2021 (the 'Warrant'), with each Warrant entitling the holder to acquire one new Ordinary Share upon exercise of the Warrant. In aggregate 4,747,149 Warrants will be issued as part of the Equity Financing.

 

The 9,494,296 new Ordinary Shares are expected to be admitted to trading on AIM on or around 22 May 2020 ('Admission'). Following Admission, the Company will have 84,705,047 Ordinary Shares in issue.

 

For the purposes of the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules ("DTRs"), the issued Ordinary Share capital of Panthera following this allotment consists of 84,705,047 Ordinary Shares with voting rights attached (one vote per share). There are no shares held in treasury. This total voting rights figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, Panthera under the DTRs.

 

Variation to RIM Financing Agreement

 

Republic Investment Management Pte Ltd ('RIM') has participated in £236,226 of the Equity Financing under a variation to the existing subscription agreement.

 

Pursuant to the existing subscription agreement between the Company and RIM, and the subsequent variation as announced on 8 August 2019, RIM agreed to subscribe to A$1,763,789 in Ordinary Shares of the Company to be priced at a 15% discount to the 20 day VWAP at that time ("Tranche 3B").  Tranche 3B is conditional upon receipt of approvals to recommence exploration at the Bhukia JV project in India. 

 

The Company advises that it has now entered into a further variation agreement reducing the RIM Tranche 3B subscription by A$448,728, being RIM's participation in the current Equity Financing.  Following the variation, Tranche 3B is reduced from A$1,763,789 to A$1,315,061.
