Premier African Minerals Limited

Amendment of Loan Agreement    


Premier African Minerals Limited ("Premier" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Board has reached an agreement to amend the terms of the existing loan agreement ("Loan") entered with a company owned by a Trust of which George Roach is a beneficiary for gross value of US$300,000 as announced on 5 June 2018.


The initial maturity of 60 days was extended until 30 November 2018 as announced on 27 June 2018. The Loan is secured against the Company's shareholding of 6,128,822 shares in ARC Minerals Limited ("Arc") and the Company had agreed to underwrite any reasonable shortfall following the sale of the shares, should this be necessary ("Security"). At the last closing Arc's market price of 3.55p, the value of the Security was approximately £0.217 million.


The lenders have now agreed to cancel the Security in return for the grant of conversion rights with respect to the entire Loan amount. The Company has agreed therefore that the Loan can be converted into new ordinary shares at any time on or before the maturity date at the lesser of the Volume Weight Average Price for the five trading days immediately prior to the date of conversion or the closing price of the Premier's shares on the day preceding this announcement.
