Further Information and Additional Terms
The Placing is conditional on admission of the Shares to trading on AIM ("Admission").
Paul Johnson has subscribed for a total of 18,750,000 shares under the Placing, payable in two tranches of 9,375,000 ("First" and "Second" tranche).
Payment of the Second tranche is due by 31 October 2016 conditional upon Regency maintaining its 100% holding in the Motzfeldt Rare Earth Minerals project and its 50% holding in the Mambare Nickel project until at least the date of the Second tranche payment.
Paul Johnson will have right to join the Board after payment of the Second tranche, subject to regulatory requirements.
Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for Admission of the Shares (other than those to be issued upon payment of the Second tranche and so amounting to 65,625,000), which will rank pari passu with the Company's existing issued Ordinary Shares. Dealings are expected to commence at 8.00 a.m. on or around 12th September 2016.
Following the Placing, the Company's total issued ordinary share capital will consist of 318,009,571 Shares with voting rights. No Shares are held in treasury.
The above figure of 318,009,571 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.
