Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands (3 October 2016)

 

Chaarat (AIM - CGH), the AIM quoted exploration and development company with assets in the Kyrgyz Republic, was informed on 30 September of the following shareholdings in the Company following the placing announced on 27 September 2016.

 

·     Labro Investments Limited now holds 111,583,314 ordinary shares of US$0.01 each, representing 31.7% of the issued share capital of the Company.  Martin Andersson is indirectly beneficially interested in the majority of the shares.

 

·     Sarastro Group Limited holds 10,989,000 ordinary shares of US$0.01 each, representing 3.12% of the issued share capital of the Company. 

 

As announced on 27 September 2016, Martin Wiwen-Nilsson, Dominik Dolenec, Abingdon Trust, Willem De Geer and Sarastro Group Limited (or in each case his or its nominee) are being treated as concert parties of Labro (together with Labro the "Concert Party") for the purposes of the Articles of Association of the Company. Following completion of the Placing, the Concert Party holds 136,858,034 Ordinary Shares representing 38.9% of the Enlarged Share Capital.  

As the Placing was oversubscribed and Placing applications by members of the Concert Party were scaled back, it has been agreed as part of the Placing that members of the Concert Party may acquire up to a further 21,611,714 Ordinary Shares (excluding Ordinary Shares issued on exercise of Labro Warrants) within a period of six months following Admission without triggering a requirement to make a mandatory offer under the Articles.

Shareholders are reminded that all members of the Concert Party (other than the director of the Company Martin Wiwen-Nilsson), although associates of the Chairman Martin Andersson, act independently, solely in their own interests and have no direct involvement with the Company. This will mean that, subject to the waiver detailed above, any purchase of shares by any member of the Concert Party must be notified to the Board so that the Independent Directors can decide whether to exercise their discretion to waive the requirement to make a mandatory offer to all shareholders.

 

The Board believes this is best practice for corporate governance purposes so that there is no perception that Shares are being accumulated with the objective of acquiring the Company at a potentially depressed valuation and is a valuable protection for other shareholders of the Company.
