Arc Minerals Ltd
("Arc Minerals" or the "Company")
UPDATE ON THE OFFER FOR CASA MINING LIMITED
Arc Minerals is pleased to announce that in relation to the offer for the balance of the issued share capital of Casa Mining Ltd ("Casa") (the "Offer"), it has increased its interest in Casa from 87.4% to 91.6 % since the previous RNS announcement made on 10 January 2018.
If the Offer is accepted by all shareholders of Casa, then a total of 100,000,000 new ordinary shares of no par value of the Company ("New Ordinary Shares") will be issued to Casa shareholders pursuant to the Offer and acquisition of Casa.
On 10 November 2017, Arc Minerals made an application for a block admission of 100,000,000 New Ordinary Shares to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange plc and these shares were admitted to trading on AIM on 15 November 2017 (the "Block Admission").
To date, Arc Minerals has issued 85,086,539 New Ordinary Shares pursuant to the acquisition of Casa and the Offer, so up to 14,913,437 New Ordinary Shares potentially remain to be issued under the Block Admission.
The Offer remains open until 10 May 2018 and acceptances continue to be received daily.
Following the issue of the New Ordinary Shares, the total issued share capital of the Company consists of 318,888,193 ordinary shares of no par value with voting rights ("Ordinary Shares"). The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company is 318,888,193 and 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.
