Sunrise Resources plc (ticker symbol 'SRES'), the AIM-traded company focusing on the development of its CS Pozzolan-Perlite Project in Nevada, USA, is pleased to announce that it has raised £350,000 before expenses, through a conditional placing ("the Placing") of 350,000,000 new Ordinary Shares of 0.1p each (the "Placing Shares") at a price of 0.1p per share (the "Placing Price") representing a discount of approximately 23% to the closing market bid-price on 31 October 2019.


Mr Patrick Cheetham, Executive Chairman of the Company, has subscribed £100,000 for 100,000,000 Placing Shares as part of the Placing. Mr Cheetham's subscription constitutes a related party transaction in accordance with AIM Rule 13. The independent directors of the Company (being Mr David Swan and Mr Roger Murphy), having consulted with Beaumont Cornish Limited, the Company's nominated adviser, consider that the terms of Mr Cheetham's participation in the Placing are fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.


The Placing was arranged through Peterhouse Capital Limited ("Peterhouse") which has been appointed as a joint broker to the Company. Peterhouse will be issued with 12,500,000 warrants, each warrant entitling the holder to apply for one new Ordinary Share at the Placing Price at any time within 12 months from the date of issue.


Following the issue of the Placing Shares Mr. Cheetham will be beneficially interested in 225,593,683 Ordinary Shares representing approximately 7.28% of the Company's issued share capital (including 5,500,000 Ordinary Shares held by his wife, Karen Cheetham).


Use of Proceeds


The net funds raised will be applied primarily to the completion of mine permitting for the Company's CS Pozzolan-Perlite project in Nevada, scheduled for the end of this quarter, further sampling and customer trials, work preparatory to mine start-up and for general working capital purposes.


The Placing & Admission


The Placing Shares will be issued credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared on or after the date on which they are issued.


The Placing Shares represent approximately 11.29% of the Company's enlarged issued share capital.


The issue of the Placing Shares is, inter alia, conditional on their admission to trading on AIM ("Admission"). Application will be made for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and Admission is expected to occur on or around 7 November 2019.






Total Voting Rights


For the purposes of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority, the Board of Sunrise hereby notifies the market that further to Admission, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 3,099,760,308 ordinary shares with a nominal value of 0.1p each, with voting rights ("Ordinary Shares"). The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in Treasury.


Therefore, the total number of Ordinary Shares in the Company with voting rights will be 3,099,760,308. This figure may be used by Shareholders in the Company as denominator for the calculations by which they may determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.



Commenting today, Patrick Cheetham, Executive Chairman said: "I am pleased to have this opportunity to continue my support for the Company alongside new investors introduced by Peterhouse and to have secured the funds that will allow the Company to complete its mine permitting programme for the CS Pozzolan-Perlite Project. We look forward to reporting further progress in the near future."
