For immediate release

Reabold Resources plc ("Reabold" or the "Company")

Proposed subscription to raise a total of £1.76 million

Directors' Dealings

Total voting rights

 

Reabold, the AIM listed investment company operating in the natural resources sector, is pleased to announce a proposed subscriptionof a total of 352,000,000 new ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each (the "Ordinary Shares") in the capital of the Company (the "SubscriptionShares") at a price of 0.5 pence per Subscription Share (the "Subscription Price").  The proposed subscription will raise, in aggregate, £1.76 million (before expenses) (the "Subscription").  The Subscription has been arranged by the Company and Turner Pope Investments (TPI) Limited as its agent, and the proceeds will allow the Company to pursue further investment opportunities in accordance with its investing policy.

The placing and issue of shares announced on 20 September 2017 (the "Placing") utilised nearly all of the Directors' current authorities to issue new ordinary shares free of pre-emption rights.  Accordingly, on 22 September 2017 the Company announced that it was posting a notice to shareholders of the Company ("Shareholders") convening a general meeting (the "GM") on 12 October 2017 to consider increasing the authority of the Directors.  The Subscription, therefore, is conditional on Shareholder approval being given at the GM.

Saltwind Enterprises Limited ("Saltwind"), a company of which Jeremy Edelman, Director, is a director and shareholder, and which owns 11.3% of the Company's issued share capital has subscribed £50,000 for 10,000,000 new Ordinary Shares under the Subscription.  Accordingly, this subscription is a related party transaction under the AIM Rules. Anthony Samaha, the Director independent of the transaction, considers, having consulted with the Company's nominated adviser, that the terms of the transaction are fair and reasonable so far as Shareholders are concerned.

Subsequent to the issue of the Subscription Shares, Saltwind will be interested in 144,000,000 Ordinary Shares or 9.3% of the Company's issued share capital and Saltwind and Jeremy Edelman together, will be interested in 169,000,000 Ordinary Shares or 11.0% of the Company's enlarged issued share capital.

 

Market Abuse Regulation

That inside information is set out in this announcement and has been disclosed as soon as possible in accordance with paragraph 7 of article 17 of MAR. Therefore, those persons that received inside information in a Market Sounding are no longer in possession of inside information relating to the Company and its securities.
