Panthera Resources Plc

("Panthera" or the "Company")

 

Equity Financing

 

Panthera Resources plc (AIM: PAT), the gold exploration and development company with assets in India and West Africa, is pleased to announce that it has arranged a conditional equity capital fundraise with new and existing investors for approximately £1.04 million (before expenses) by way of a placing and subscription (together the "Equity Financing") in aggregate of 18,906,786 new ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the Company (the "New Ordinary Shares") at a price of 5.5 pence per New Ordinary Share (the "Issue Price").

 

Allenby Capital Limited ("Allenby Capital"), VSA Capital Limited ("VSA") and Novum Securities Limited ("Novum") are acting as brokers in connection with the Equity Financing (together, the "Brokers").

 

It is intended that the net proceeds of the Equity Financing will be used towards the Company's activities in India and West Africa and meeting the Company's working capital commitments.

 

Commenting on the Equity Financing, Mark Bolton (Managing Director) said:

 

"We are delighted to receive this support from existing shareholders as well as welcoming new institutional shareholders to the shareholder register.  The Equity Financing will support our business while we pursue international arbitration against the Government of India, an unusual situation where the Company seeks to realise the fair value of the Bhukia project.  The arbitration is financed by LCM Funding SG Pty Ltd, an international leader in this field."

 

Details of the Equity Financing

 

The Equity Financing comprises a placing of 2,909,090 New Ordinary Shares (the "Placing Shares") and subscription commitments of 15,997,696 New Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price. The Equity Financing has been undertaken under the Company's existing allotment and pre-emption disapplication authorities and participation has not been made available to members of the public. The New Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares.

 

The Company has agreed to pay the Brokers a commission in connection with the Equity Financing.  In addition, the Company has agreed to issue 758,181 unlisted certificated options to the Brokers, exercisable at a price of 5.5 pence on or before two years from the date of Admission (as defined below) with each option entitling the holder to acquire one new Ordinary Share.  

 

The Equity Financing is not being underwritten by Allenby Capital, VSA or Novum or any other person.

 

Admission and Total Voting Rights

 

Application will be made to London Stock Exchange plc for the 18,906,786 new Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). It is currently anticipated that Admission will become effective and that dealings in the New Ordinary Shares will commence on AIM at 8.00 a.m. on or around 28 June 2024.

 

Upon Admission of the 18,906,786 new Ordinary Shares, the Company's issued ordinary share capital will consist of 195,030,326 Ordinary Shares with one voting right each. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of Ordinary Shares and voting rights in the Company will be 195,030,326. With effect from Admission, this figure may be used by Shareholders in the Company 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 FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

UK Product Governance Requirements

 

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within chapter 3 of the FCA Handbook Product Intervention and Product Governance Sourcebook (the "UK Product Governance Requirements") and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the UK Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Placing Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that the Placing Shares are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail investors and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in chapter 3 of the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook ("COBS"); and (ii) eligible for distribution through all permitted distribution channels (the "UK Target Market Assessment"). Notwithstanding the UK Target Market Assessment, distributors should note that: the price of the Placing Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Placing Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in Placing Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The UK Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Placing. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the UK Target Market Assessment, the Bookrunners will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, the UK Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of chapters 9A or 10A respectively of the COBS; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to Placing Shares. Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.

 

EU Product Governance Requirements

 

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within: (a) EU Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments, as amended and as this is applied in the United Kingdom ("MiFID II"); (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing MiFID II and Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 of the European Parliament, as they form part of UK law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, as amended; and (c) local implementing measures (together, the "MiFID II Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the MiFID II Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Ordinary Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that such securities are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in MiFID II; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all distribution channels as are permitted by MiFID II (the "Target Market Assessment"). The Ordinary Shares are not appropriate for a target market of investors whose objectives include no capital loss.  Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, distributors should note that: the price of the Ordinary Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Ordinary Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Ordinary Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital projection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Equity Financing. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, Allenby Capital, VSA and Novum will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties. For the avoidance of doubt, the Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of MiFID II; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the Ordinary Shares. Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.
