Conversion of loan


The Board of Premier African Minerals Limited ("Premier" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the  full conversion of the loan instrument entered into with a company owned by a trust of which George Roach is a beneficiary as announced on 9 April 2020, into new ordinary shares in the Company in accordance with the terms of the loan agreement.

The loan, plus accrued interest, amounts to US$206,027 (£159,131.07) and the Company has therefore issued today 232,647,763 new ordinary shares to the Trust ("Conversion Shares"), representing approximately 1.9 per cent. of the current issued share capital of the Company, at an issue price of 0.0684p per Conversion Share. The issue price is equivalent to 90 per cent. of the daily volume weighted average price during the five days trading days immediately prior to the conversion. The Conversion Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares.

Application will be made for the Conversion Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and admission is expected to take place on or around 15 August 2020.

On admission of the Conversion Shares, the Trust will be interested in a total of 347,455,736 ordinary shares representing 2.7 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company. Accordingly, George Roach will be interested directly and indirectly in an aggregate of 837,132,385 ordinary shares, representing approximately 6.5 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company.

Immediately on the issue of the Conversion Shares, the security held by the Trust over 200,000 shares of Circum Minerals Limited will be terminated.

Total Voting Rights

Following the issue of the Conversion Shares, the Company's issued share capital consists of 12,794,204,879 Ordinary Shares, with voting rights. This figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculation by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
