Issue of Equity and Total Voting Rights
Reabold, the AIM investing company which focuses on investments in upstream oil and gas projects, is pleased to announce that, further to its announcement of 26 May 2020, the conditions precedent for the acquisition of an additional 16.665 per cent. interest in the onshore UK licence PEDL 183, which contains the West Newton field, from Humber, have now been satisfied.
Accordingly, the 350,000,000 Consideration Shares have now been issued to Humber and application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the admission of the Consideration Shares to trading on AIM (“Admission”). It is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings in the Consideration Shares will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 30 July 2020.
As a result of the Acquisition, Reabold now has an effective economic interest in the Licence of 56 per cent, comprising a 39.66 per cent. indirect interest, via the Company’s 59.48 per cent. interest in Rathlin, and a 16.665 per cent. direct interest in the Licence.
Total Voting Rights
Following Admission, the Company’s total issued share capital will consist of 7,096,982,101 Ordinary Shares with voting rights. The Consideration Shares will be fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the Company’s existing Ordinary Shares.
On Admission, the abovementioned figure of 7,096,982,101 Ordinary Shares 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, Reabold under the Financial Conduct Authority’s Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
Pursuant to the SPA, Humber has agreed to a lock up over 66.67 per cent. of the Consideration Shares for a period of three months from Admission and an orderly market restriction for a further period of three months once the lock-in period expires.
Define terms used in this announcement have the same meaning as those ascribed to them in the Company’s announcement of 26 May 2020, unless otherwise defined herein or the context requires otherwise.
