("Chaarat" or the "Company")

 

Director shareholdings

 

Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands (27 October 2017).

 

Chaarat (AIM:CGH) was notified on 27 October 2017 that Labro Investments Limited ("Labro") has purchased 7.5 million shares ordinary shares of US$0.01 each ("Shares") in the Company at a price of 17.25p per share representing a premium of 1.7 per cent. to the 3 month VWAP of 16.96p per share as at close of business on 26 October 2017, from Mada Limited (an entity controlled by Dekel Golan, a Director of the Company who will step down from the Board on 1 November 2017).  Martin Andersson (the Chairman of Chaarat) is indirectly beneficially interested in the majority of the shares in Labro.

 

Legal and beneficial ownership of the shares will transfer immediately, with payment of the consideration to be completed in tranches on or before 1 November 2018, as agreed between Labro and Mada Limited. Mada Limited has given a conditional undertaking to Labro not to sell its remaining shareholding of 2,775,691 Shares prior to 1 June 2018 (subject to limited exceptions).

 

Following this transaction, Labro has a beneficial interest in 129,498,037   Shares representing approximately 36.81% of Chaarat's issued share capital. 

 

T here is a provision in the Company's Articles of Association which states that the Board has the right (but not obligation) to require any holder of more than 20% of the Company's Shares to make a mandatory offer to all the Company's shareholders to acquire their Shares if they acquire an additional interest in any Shares. The Board has previously exercised its discretion to waive the requirement for a mandatory offer when Labro acquired Shares in excess of a 20% holding.  The Board has decided to exercise its discretion to waive the requirement for the Concert Party members (set out in the paragraph below) in respect of this purchase. The Board considers that, as Dekel Golan had indicated he wished to dispose of a proportion of his shareholding, it was in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders to remove the potential overhang of shares by allowing Labro to purchase these shares.

 

The Board, having consulted with the members of the Concert Party now considers that the members of the Concert Party are Labro, Martin Wiwen-Nilsson (who is also a director of the Company), Sarastro Group Limited, and Willem De Geer who owns some of his Shares directly and some through his investment vehicle, Deer Invest AB. The Concert Party holding following the transaction referred to above is now 164,456,306 Shares representing approximately 46.75% of Chaarat's issued share capital.

 

If all warrants held by Labro were exercised and all convertible loan notes held by Labro and Martin Wiwen-Nilsson were converted (but no other warrants or options to subscribe for Ordinary Shares were exercised, no other convertible loan notes were converted and no other Ordinary Shares were issued), the Concert Party would hold 188,138,557 Ordinary Shares representing approximately 50.1% of the resulting enlarged share capital.
