The Board of Adamas Finance Asia Limited ("ADAM"), the London quoted pan-Asian diversified investment vehicle, has approved a share buyback programme ("Programme") to repurchase ordinary shares of no par value ("Ordinary Shares") up to an aggregate value of US$500,000.

Ordinary Share purchases will take place in open market transactions and may be made from time to time depending on market conditions, share price, trading volume and other factors.  The Company has appointed VSA Capital Limited ("VSA") to manage an irrevocable, non-discretionary share buyback programme to repurchase Ordinary Shares on its behalf, subject to pre-agreed parameters including a maximum price of US$0.79 per Ordinary Share (being a 25% discount to the proforma net asset value per share of US$1.06, calculated by dividing the estimated net assets of the Company as at 30 September 2018 by the current number of Ordinary Shares in issue of 88,733,069).

Any purchases of Ordinary Shares by the Company in relation to this announcement will be carried out on the London Stock Exchange and will be effected in accordance with (and subject to the limits prescribed by) (i) the general authority granted by shareholders to the Board at the Company's 2018 annual general meeting that the Company may purchase or repurchase up to 14.99% of the number of shares of the Company in issue as at 17 August 2018; and (ii) the Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014 ("MAR") and the AIM Rules.
