Richland Resources Ltd ("Richland" or the "Company")

 

COMPANY REGISTERED OFFICE ADDRESS AND IF DIFFERENT, COMPANY TRADING ADDRESS (INCLUDING POSTCODES) :

Clarendon House, 2 Church Street, Hamilton, HM 11, Bermuda

 

COUNTRY OF INCORPORATION:

Bermuda

 

COMPANY WEBSITE ADDRESS CONTAINING ALL INFORMATION REQUIRED BY AIM RULE 26:

COMPANY BUSINESS (INCLUDING MAIN COUNTRY OF OPERATION) OR, IN THE CASE OF AN INVESTING COMPANY, DETAILS OF ITS INVESTING POLICY).  IF THE ADMISSION IS SOUGHT AS A RESULT OF A REVERSE TAKE-OVER UNDER RULE 14, THIS SHOULD BE STATED:

 

Admission is sought as a result of a reverse takeover in accordance with AIM Rule 14.

 

On 31 December 2019, further to the receipt of shareholder approval at an annual general meeting of the Company held on 19 August 2019, Richland became an AIM Rule 15 cash shell upon completion of a fundamental disposal and thereafter commenced the process of appraising suitable reverse acquisition opportunities in the mining sector.

 

On 24 July 2020, the Company entered into a conditional acquisition agreement to acquire the entire issued share capital of Global Asset Resources Ltd ("GAR"), for:

 

Initial consideration of AU$60,000 (approximately US$43,392) in cash and AU$1.04m (approximately US$752,128) in new common shares to be issued at a price of 2.75p per share. In addition, Richland made two non-refundable cash payments to GAR of US$29,340 on 31 July 2020 and US$22,818 on 30 September 2020.

 

Deferred consideration comprising potential future additional payments to be made to the sellers and the joint venture partner, Uwharrie Resources Inc. ("URI"), in cash or new common shares at Richland's sole discretion, of, in aggregate, AU$1.5m and AU$3m, subject to the achievement of certain material, value-generative performance milestones, or the occurrence of certain vesting events within five years of Admission.

 

GAR, via its wholly owned US subsidiary, holds a 51% interest in four gold exploration projects in North and South Carolina, being:

the Jones-Keystone-Loflin Project

the Carolina Belle Project

the Jennings-Pioneer Project; and

the Argo Project

(together, the "GAR Projects").

 

The Company has conditionally raised, in aggregate, £3.33 million via the issue of 120,989,112 new common shares of US$0.003 each (post a proposed 1 for 10 share consolidation) at a price of 2.75p per share (the "Placing and Subscription"). The net proceeds of the Placing and Subscription will be utilised to satisfy the initial consideration and to provide the Company with working capital to conduct its initial exploration programme (including meeting certain minimum funding requirements in respect of the GAR Projects during the first two years following Admission).

 

The acquisition constitutes a reverse takeover pursuant to AIM Rule 14 and is therefore subject to, inter alia, the approval of Richland's shareholders.

 

DETAILS OF SECURITIES TO BE ADMITTED INCLUDING ANY RESTRICTIONS AS TO TRANSFER OF THE SECURITIES (i.e. where known, number and type of shares, nominal value and issue price to which it seeks admission and the number and type to be held as treasury shares):

Common shares of US$0.003 each in the Company ("Common Shares") (following a proposed 1 for 10 share consolidation of the Company's existing common shares of US$0.0003 each).

 

261,478,810 Common Shares are to be admitted to trading.

 

1,108,172,891 existing common shares of US$0.0003 are currently in issue (excluding treasury shares) and will, subject to shareholder approval, be consolidated into 110,817,289 Common Shares. In addition, the Company will, on Admission, issue 120,989,112 Common Shares pursuant to the Placing and Subscription, 21,367,288 Common Shares to satisfy the initial equity consideration, 2,840,909 Common Shares to satisfy the settlement of an outstanding loan and 5,464,212 Common Shares pursuant to the satisfaction of certain outstanding fees.
