Net Asset Value

Baker Steel Resources Trust Limited (the "Company") announces its unaudited net asset value per share at 31 May 2019:

Net asset value per Ordinary Share:  59.1 pence

The NAV per share has increased by 4.0% against the NAV at 30 April 2019, primarily due to a 5.4% rise in the share price of Polymetal International plc on the London Stock Exchange despite paying a 3.5% dividend during the month, together with the effect of the Company's tender offer during the month.


During May 2019 a Tender Offer by Numis Securities Limited was completed. As announced on 28 May 2019, the Tender Offer was oversubscribed and accordingly 9,677,478 Ordinary Shares were purchased at 51 pence per share and have been cancelled.


As the Tender Offer was undertaken at a discount to the NAV per share, it had the effect of increasing the NAV per share by approximately 0.7% after expenses.


Following the Tender Offer and cancellation, as at 31 May 2019 the Company had a total of 106,453,335 Ordinary Shares and 9,167 Management Ordinary Shares in issue with a further 700,000 shares held in treasury.
