("Shefa Gems" or the "Company")


Loan Agreement


Shefa Gems (LSE: SEFA), a company focused on advanced exploration and development of multi-gemstone projects in Northern Israel, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a convertible loan agreement over the provision of US$200,000 (approximately £156,250) (the "Agreement") with a shareholder of the Company ("the Lender") for working capital purposes and to fund the continued development of its Kishon Mid-Reach Project.


Terms of the Loan


Pursuant to the Agreement, the Lender has agreed to provide a loan for US$200,000 (approximately £156,250) (the "Loan"). The Loan, together with rolled up interest at 5%, is convertible into ordinary shares of the Company at a share price of £0.05 per share at any time until 31 March 2021.  The Loan will be non-transferable.


Following conversion, the Company will grant the Lender one unlisted warrant for every share received on conversion, exercisable for a period of 24 months from the date of the conversion, at a price of £0.10 per warrant. In the event that the Company's share price during the period 24 months after conversion, does not at any time reach £0.10 per share, the Lender will receive additional shares after 24 months in such an amount as to make the total number of shares issued to the Lender have a value, based on the market price at that time, of £312,500


Michael Rosenberg and James Campbell who are independent Directors, having consulted with the Company's Financial Adviser, consider the terms of the Loan, to be fair and reasonable insofar as all of Shefa's shareholders are concerned.
