Amur Minerals Corporation ("Amur" or the "Company"), the nickel-copper sulphide mineral exploration and resource development company focused on the far east of Russia, is pleased to announce that Mr. Tom Bowens, Non-executive Director of the Company has today subscribed for 7,527,604 new Ordinary Shares (the Subscription Shares") and raised gross proceeds totaling £162,972 of the Company at a price of 2.165 pence per share. The Subscription price is at the closing price of Friday 23 August 2019 and therefore not at a discount, representing a more competitive source of funds when compared to the Company's current loan facility.
Following this transaction, Mr. Bowens will have a beneficial interest in 7,527,604 Ordinary Shares representing approximately 1 percent of the Company's issued Ordinary Capital.
Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange plc for 7,527,604 new Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on the AIM market with admission expected to occur on or around 2 September 2019. The new Ordinary Shares rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares including the right to receive any dividend or other distribution thereafter declared, made or paid. There are no Ordinary Shares held in treasury. Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company, following the issue of 7,527,604 new Ordinary Shares is 736,272,604.
Mr. Tom Bowens is a Non-Executive director of the Company, and is therefore regarded as a related party as defined by the AIM Rules for Companies (the "AIM Rules"). Mr Bowen's participation in the Subscription is therefore classified as a related party transaction for the purposes of Rule 13 of the AIM Rules. Robert Schafer, Paul Gazzard, Brian Savage and Ljupco Naumovski, being the independent directors for the purposes of Rule 13, consider, having consulted with the Company's Nominated Adviser, SP Angel Corporate Finance LLP, that the terms of the related party transaction are fair and reasonable insofar as the shareholders of the Company are concerned.
The proceeds of the subscription will be used for working capital.
