Full details of the resolutions are set out in the Notice of General Meeting, dated 16 March 2017 (www.echoenergyplc.com)

Successful Conclusion of Significantly Oversubscribed Open Offer

The Open Offer closed for acceptances at 11.00 a.m. on 13 April 2017 and the Company announces that it was hugely oversubscribed and that it has received valid acceptances in respect of 2,236,280,127 Open Offer Shares from Qualifying Shareholders, raising GBP1,453,582 before expenses, conditional only on Admission. This represents 100 per cent. of the Open Offer Shares offered and includes applications for 58,066,839 Open Offer Shares under the Excess Application Facility. Accordingly, valid applications for Open Offer Entitlements under the Open Offer are being met in full.

Applications for Excess Open Offer Entitlements were significantly greater than the number of Open Offer Entitlements not applied for and have accordingly been scaled back pro rata to the number of Excess Shares applied for by Qualifying Shareholders under the Excess Application Facility.

All eligible applications under the Excess Application Facility will be scaled back pro rata to the number of Excess Shares applied for and refund payments for all unallocated Excess Applications will be made as soon as reasonably practical.

Admission of Open Offer Shares

Application has been made for 2,236,280,127 New Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Open Offer to be admitted to trading on AIM with Admission expected to become effective at 8.00 a.m. on 19 April 2017.

Change of Name/Ticker

As announced on 6 March 2017 the Company can confirm that, following the special resolution at the General Meeting, it will change its name to Echo Energy plc with immediate effect. As a consequence it will adopt the ticker symbol ECHO. This is expected to become effective for trading in the Company's shares on 19 April 2017. The Company's ISIN and SEDOL codes will remain unchanged.

New Website

The Company's new website is now active and can be found at www.echoenergyplc.com, including the information required by AIM Rule 26.

Grant of Warrants

As per the terms of the GBP1m three year secured loan from Greenberry plc ('Greenberry') to the Company, announced on 6 March 2017, Greenberry was to be granted 1,538,461,538 warrants. On 9 March 2017 53,078,411 warrants were issued to Greenberry and following today's General Meeting 477,800,000 warrants will be issued with the remainder to be issued following approval for further authority to issue equity securities on a non-pre-emptive basis, which will be sought at the next general meeting of the Company.

PDMR Dealings

Greg Coleman, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, has participated in the Open Offer and as result of his application, including Excess Shares, will be allotted 3,043,799 shares in the Company.

As a result of this purchase Greg Coleman is interested in 7,589,876 Ordinary shares, representing 0.123% of the Company's enlarged issued share capital.

Total Voting Rights

On Admission of the New Ordinary Shares the Company will have 6,157,367,008 Ordinary Shares in issue and no shares are held in treasury. Therefore, the Company's total number of Ordinary Shares with voting rights will be 6,157,367,008.

The above figure of 6,157,367,008 may be used by Shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

The Company has this morning announced its intention to proceed with a 25:1 share consolidation which will be brought to shareholders for approval during the latter half of May 2017.
