EXERCISE OF WARRANTS
Katoro Gold plc (AIM: KAT), the gold and nickel exploration and development focused company, is pleased to announce that it has received notices from certain clients of SI Capital, the Company's broker, who participated in the October 2019 fundraise (the 'Fundraise') to exercise warrants, in aggregate, over 1,000,000 ordinary shares of 1 pence in the Company at an exercise price of 1.5 pence (the 'Warrant Shares'). All funds, amounting to, in aggregate, £15,000, from the exercise of the warrants have been received by the Company and will be used for general working capital purposes.
Following the exercise of the foregoing warrants, the Company currently has 117,274,999 warrants outstanding, including 10 million held by Power Metal Resources plc (LON: POW) exercisable at 1.25p per warrant, 5.1 million held by participants in the October 2019 fundraise exercisable at 1.50p per warrant, 17.2 million warrants held by participants in the March 2020 fundraise exercisable at 2p per warrant, 36,666,666 warrants held by participants in the June 2020 fundraise exercisable at 3p per warrant, and 48 million held by participants in the December 2020 fundraise exercisable at 3p per warrant.
Should all 117,274,999 warrants be exercised, the Company would receive an additional £3,072,000 in cash inflow which would provide a significant additional cash runway for the Company.
Admission and Total voting rights
Application will be made for the Warrant Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM, and dealings are expected to commence on or around 17 March 2021 ('Admission'). The Warrant Shares will rank pari passu with the ordinary shares of the Company in issue. Following Admission, the share capital of the Company will comprise 378,912,593 ordinary shares.
Each ordinary share has one voting right and no ordinary shares are held in treasury. Accordingly, the total number of voting rights will be 378,912,593 and 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, Katoro under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency rules.
Following the issue of the Warrant Shares and Admission, Kibo Energy Plc will be interested in, in aggregate, 96,138,738 Ordinary Shares representing approximately 25.37% of the Company's then issued share capital.
