 AIM: FOX   3 January 2018 

Fox Marble Holdings plc

("Fox Marble" or the "Company")

Sales and Purchase Agreement signed for distribution of marble into GCC nations

Fox Marble, (AIM:FOX) the AIM listed company focused on marble quarrying and finishing in Kosovo and the Balkans region, is pleased to announce that it has signed a three-year sales agreement (the "Agreement") with Mr Shailesh Patil. Subject to achieving a minimum commitment of 3,000 tonnes per annum, the agreement confers upon Mr Patil exclusivity as Fox Marble's distributor for GCC nations, comprising Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait and the UAE. The minimum commitment under the Agreement equates to approximately EUR600,000 to EUR800,000 per annum.

Mr Patil will make an initial payment of GBP50,000 within the next 14 days for an order of marble slabs, which are currently being prepared for shipment. This first order comprises a range of Fox Marble stone, including Grigio Argento, Illirico Selene, Breccia Paradisea and Bianco Illirico.

As part of the Agreement, Mr Patil has committed to a further GBP450,000 advance payment, to be paid within 90 days of the Agreement, which will be offset against future orders.

Mr Patil is the founder and CEO of Kesari Tours Pvt Ltd, one of India's most reputed travel companies, with branches across India and the GCC. He has extensive experience in successfully building businesses and brands, but his background is as an engineer working on marble projects, an industry to which he now returns with Fox Marble.

Chris Gilbert, CEO of Fox Marble, commented: "We are pleased to have signed this important agreement for the Company with Mr Patil. This agreement clearly demonstrates not only the international recognition of our marble but also our continued ability to deliver large block orders, as demand increases and we expand into new markets."

Notes to Editors:

Fox Marble (AIM:FOX), is a marble production, processing and distribution company in Kosovo and the Balkans region.

Its marble products, which includes Illyric White, Illirico Selene, Grigio Argento are gaining traction globally both to international wholesale companies as well as being supplied directly into luxury residential properties. In the UK these include among others St George's Homes and Capital and Counties Plc's Lillie Square development. In Sydney, Australia Rosso Cait, Alexandrian White and Breccia Paradisea marble have been used in what is expected to be Australia's most expensive property. These sales serve to demonstrate the desirability of Fox's premium marble products as the stone of choice in some of the most prestigious and expensive residential developments around the world.

Fox Marble holds 40 year mining licences for six separate marble quarries with a maiden JORC resource indicating an in-situ valuation of approximately Euro 16.5 billion. Fox has taken three of the six sites into production (the Drini and Maleshevë quarries, both in Kosovo and from the Prilep Quarry in Macedonia) and continues to increase production. Notably, Fox has access to over 300 million cubic metres (over 1bn tons) of premium quality marble.

Marble demand continues to grow with stable pricing, predominantly driven by the construction and real-estate industries, on which Fox is looking to capitalise.
