Galileo Resources Plc is pleased to announce the Company has today completed, in conjunction with Shard Capital Partners LLP ("Shard") , a placing (the "Placing") with institutional and retail investors ("the Placees") of 125,000,000 Placing Units comprising 125,000,000 ordinary shares ("Ordinary Shares") of 0.1p each (the "Placing Shares") at a placing price of 0.40 p (the "Placing Price") per Placing Share to raise £500,000 before expenses subject to admission to trading on AIM ("Admission") and 125,000,000 Warrants ("Placing Warrants") to subscribe for Ordinary Shares at an exercise price of 0.60p per share. The Placing Price is at a discount of approximately 8% compared to the closing mid-market price of 0.45p yesterday. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Placing for general working capital towards advancing its Star Zinc and Kashitu projects ("the Projects") in Zambia, including an application and related environmental and licence transfer activities for a small-scale mining permit for Star Zinc and exploration on Kashitu.
In connection with the Placing, the Company has also granted 3,750,000 warrants to Shard ("Brokers Warrants") to subscribe for Ordinary Shares at an exercise price of 0.60p per share. The Brokers Warrants and the Placing Warrants may be exercised at any time in the period expiring on the second anniversary of Admission of the Placing Shares.
As part of the Placing, Colin Bird, the Company's Chairman, and Richard Wollenberg, the Company's Non-Executive Director, have respectively subscribed for 5,000,000 and 500,000 Placing Units. Accordingly, Colin Bird will hold 60,435,000 Ordinary Shares representing 10.83% of Galileo's enlarged issued share capital and Richard Wollenberg will hold 7,221,341 Ordinary Shares representing 1.29% of Galileo's enlarged issued share capital following the Placing.
The Placing Shares will, when issued, rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares. Application will be made for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and admission is expected to take place on or around 1 November 2019.
Following the issue of the Placing Shares, the Company's issued share capital will total 557,811,947 ordinary Shares, with voting rights. Shareholders in the Company may use this figure as the denominator for the calculation, by which they would determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
