Block Admissions

 

Block Admission Interim Review

 

Echo Energy plc, the Latin American focused upstream oil and gas company, provides an update in relation to the Company's block admission arrangements (the "Block Admissions") in respect of new ordinary shares of 0.25p in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") which may be issued as a result of future exercises of existing warrants and options. The Block Admissions have been put in place to enable the Company to handle any future exercises of existing warrants and options in an efficient manner. 

 

In addition to providing notification pursuant to Rule 29 of, and Schedule Six to, the AIM Rules for Companies regarding its existing Block Admissions, the Company also announces that it has today made applications to the London Stock Exchange plc for the admission of an aggregate of 19,000,000 Ordinary Shares to trading on AIM under new Block Admissions (the "New Block Admission Ordinary Shares").

 

The effect of these Block Admission changes will be to increase the total number of Ordinary Shares that the Company has under Block Admissions to an aggregate of 161,343,517 Ordinary Shares.

 

Following Admission, the Company will continue to have 806,717,587 Ordinary Shares in issue, which remains unchanged from previous notifications.

New Block Admissions

Application has been made for the New Block Admission Ordinary Shares, which will, when issued, rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares, to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission") at 8.00 a.m. on 21 September 2020 in the amounts set out below.

 

·   13,300,000 Ordinary Shares which may be issued pursuant to the exercise of warrants to subscribe for new Ordinary Shares at a price of 1.0p per new Ordinary Share granted by the Company in July 2020 (the "July 2020 Placing Warrants"). The issue of the July 2020 Warrants, which were issued in connection with a placing of new Ordinary Shares undertaken at that time (the "Placing"), was announced by the Company on 27 July 2020.

 

·   5,700,000 Ordinary Shares which may be issued pursuant to the exercise of warrants to subscribe for new Ordinary Shares at a price of 0.8p per new Ordinary Share granted by the Company July 2020 (the "July 2020 Fee Warrants"). The grant of the July 2020 Fee Warrants, in respect of fees incurred in connection with the Placing, was announced by the Company on 27 July 2020.

 

From Admission, the Company will therefore have the following Ordinary Shares admitted to trading on AIM under the Block Admissions:

 

March 2017 Warrants*

61,538,461

March 2017 Options*

3,033,628
