("Ascent" or the "Company")


Issue of Equity


Ascent Resources plc, the AIM quoted European oil and gas exploration and production company, has received a notice of exercise ("the Notice") to convert 1,019,121 convertible loan notes of £1 each which were originally issued to Henderson Global Investors and EnQuest plc between February 2014 and July 2015 (the "2014 Loan Notes") and the terms of which were amended in February 2015 and October 2016.  The 2014 Loan Notes, including rolled up interest, are convertible into new Ordinary Shares at a rate of 100 new Ordinary Shares per £1 loan note. 


Consequently, a total of 101,912,100 new Ordinary Shares ("the Conversion Shares") will be issued pursuant to the Notice, following which £2,172,034 nominal convertible loan notes (including rolled-up interest) remain outstanding.


Admission and Settlement


Application is being made for the admission to trading on AIM of the Conversion Shares ("Admission"). Admission is expected to occur on 13 July 2017.  Following Admission, Ascent will have 1,937,563,174 Ordinary Shares in issue.  There are no shares held in treasury.  The total voting rights in the Company is therefore 1,937,563,174 and Shareholders may use this figure as the denominator by which they are required to notify their interest in, or change to their interest in, the Company under the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
