African Potash Limited ("African Potash" or "the Company")
Exercise of Warrants and Issue of Shares
African Potash Limited, the AIM listed African exploration company, announces that on 4 September 2015, Cornhill Capital Limited ("Cornhill") exercised 10 million warrants to subscribe for new Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of 0.3p per share (further details of the warrants are contained in the Company's announcement of 17 April 2015). In addition, the Company has agreed to issue a further 1,250,000 new Ordinary Shares in lieu of advisor's fees. Accordingly the Company will be issuing 11,250,000 new Ordinary Shares in aggregate (the "New Shares").
Application has been made for the New Shares, which will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares, to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). Admission is expected to be effective from 8.00 a.m. on or around 11 September 2015.
The Company has no Ordinary Shares held in treasury. The total number of voting rights in the Company following the issue of the New Shares will therefore be 766,733,946 (of which the New Shares will represent 1.47%). This figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
Andrew Frangos of Cornhill said, "Cornhill Capital is delighted to invest in African Potash by exercising its warrants - African Potash has proven to be one of the most exciting stocks of 2015."
