Ascent Resources Plc (LON: AST) the onshore Caribbean, Hispanic American and European energy and natural resources company, announces that, further to the announcement on 16 November 2020.
It has revised its block listing application to the London Stock Exchange. The block listing application of 16 November 2020 will no longer stand and the revised block listing of securities application is in respect of 16,651,754 ordinary shares of 0.5 pence each (the ‘New Ordinary Shares’) to be admitted to trading on AIM.
The New Ordinary Shares will be issued from time to time in order to satisfy certain warrants which may be exercised. It is expected that admission will become effective on 24 November 2020.
The block listings consist of:
1. 424,482 ordinary shares in respect of the 24 March 2020 warrants exercisable at 5 pence per share, (the “March 2020 Warrants”);
2. 8,727,272 ordinary shares in respect of the 30 April 2020 warrants exercisable at 5.5 pence per share, (the “April 2020 Warrants”);
3. 7,500,000 ordinary shares in respect of the 6 August 2020 warrants exercisable at 4 pence per share, (the “August 2020 Warrants”); and
For the avoidance of doubt these applications are not applications to list the warrants themselves on any regulated market but merely an administrative measure to ensure that the Company does not need to make multiple applications for admission of ordinary shares to trading on each separate occasion when the existing warrants are exercised by holders. The warrants remain in uncertificated form and there are no changes to the terms and conditions of the warrants.
Following the Block Admission, the Company’s issued share capital will remain unchanged at 89,233,281 ordinary shares. The Company will make six-monthly announcements of the utilisation of the Block Admission, in line with its obligations under AIM Rule 29. The Company will also update the market with the total voting rights at the end of the month in which warrant exercises have occurred.
When issued, the New Ordinary Shares will be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares of £0.5p each in the capital of the Company (‘Ordinary Shares’).
