The Acquisition Resolution was subject to “majority of minority” approval required under relevant Canadian securities laws. Accordingly, any votes cast by Excluded Parties (as defined in the Company’s Management Information Circular dated 1 November 2017), have been disregarded for determining the approval of the Acquisition Resolution.

Following the passing of all resolutions at today’s Meeting, application has been made for 2,830,941,822 new shares of no par value in the Company (“Shares”) to be issued pursuant to the Placing and Acquisition to be admitted to trading on AIM and the TSX (“Admission“). It is expected that Admission to AIM will take place on or before 8.00 a.m. (London time) on 18 December 2017 and that dealings will commence at the same time. The TSX has conditionally approved the issue of new shares pursuant to the Placing and Acquisition. The new Shares will rank pari passu with the Company’s existing Shares.

Following the issue of the new Shares the Company’s issued share capital will comprise 8,155,700,823 Shares. Accordingly, the figure of 8,155,700,823 may be used by shareholders 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 and Transparency Rules.

The Share Consolidation is expected to be implemented in 2018 and the Company will make a further announcement setting out the exact timing and effectiveness of the Share Consolidation in January, 2018.

Defined terms used in this announcement have the same meaning as in the Company’s announcement of 7.00 a.m. on 31 October 2017.
