("Richland" or the "Company")  

Results of Annual General Meeting

and Total Voting Rights

 

Richland (AIM: RLD) is pleased to announce that, at its Annual General Meeting held earlier today ("AGM"), all of the Resolutions were duly passed.

 

Accordingly, the amended Bye-laws have been adopted and the Share Consolidation, whereby every 10 existing common shares of US$0.0003 each (the "Existing Common Shares") currently held will be consolidated into 1 new common share of US$0.003 each (the "New Common Shares"), will take effect at the close of business (London time) today.

 

The Existing Common Shares will be cancelled from trading on AIM and the New Common Shares, including the Fundraising Shares, the Consideration Shares, the Loan Repayment Shares, the Adviser Fee Shares and the Conversion Shares, are expected to be admitted to trading on AIM with effect from 8.00 a.m. on 25 November 2020 under the new ISIN of BMG7567C1304. Following Admission, the Company will have 261,478,810 New Common Shares in issue. 

 

In addition, on Admission, the following Proposals will become unconditional in all respects:

· The Acquisition by the Company of the entire issued share capital of Global Asset Resources Ltd on the terms of the Acquisition Agreement;

· The issue of the 120,989,112 Fundraising Shares, the 21,367,288 Consideration Shares, the 1,827,849 Adviser Fee Shares, the 3,636,363 Conversion Shares and the 2,840,909 Loan Repayment Shares;

· The appointment of Rhoderick Grivas to the Board of the Company as a Non-Executive Director; and

· The Company's name change to Lexington Gold Ltd.

 

ISIN/TIDM and Change of Name of the Company

Pursuant to the passing of Resolution 8 at today's AGM, the Company will now make applications to the Registrar of Companies in Bermuda to implement the change of name to Lexington Gold Ltd and to the Bermuda Stock Exchange for a further new ISIN for its new common shares to reflect the change of name (in accordance with the requisite requirements in Bermuda). Once such procedural matters have been duly completed, the change of name, ISIN and change of TIDM (to AIM: LEX) will be effected so as to ensure no disruption to trading, and details of the new ISIN and confirmation of the name change being effected will be announced in due course. Accordingly, the Company will recommence trading on 25 November 2020 under its existing name of Richland Resources Ltd and a further announcement made in due course to confirm the date of the change of name and the new ISIN for the Company's shares, which it is currently estimated will take place in approximately two weeks.  

Director, Former Directors and Senior Management's fee conversions

As announced on 2 November 2020, Edward Nealon, certain former directors (being Anthony Brooke and Nicholas Sibley), and certain consultants and members of senior management agreed to convert, in aggregate, US$128,000 of accrued fees due to them (which to date have been deferred), into, in aggregate, 3,636,363 New Common Shares at the Placing Price (the "Conversion Shares"). Accordingly, further to the passing of, inter alia, Resolution 12, the Conversion Shares will now be issued and the resultant beneficial interests in the Company's New Common Shares of the relevant individuals on Admission will be as set out below:
