VietNam Holding Limited

("VNH" or the "Company")

 

Final Exercise of Warrants and Issue of Equity

 

VNH announces that the Company has allotted 19,377,348 new ordinary shares of US$1.00 each in the Company (the "New Ordinary Shares") following the exercise of Warrants in respect of the final Warrant exercise date of 1 June 2017, which includes the exercise by the Warrant Trustee of 6,432,613 Warrants on behalf of Ineligible Shareholders and the exercise by the Warrant Trustee of 2,135,591 Warrants not otherwise exercised by Warrant holders.

 

Application has been made for the New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and it is expected that admission and commencement of dealings in the New Ordinary Shares will take place at 8.00 a.m. on 8 June 2017 ("Admission").  The New Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu with the Company's existing ordinary shares.

 

Following the issue of the New Ordinary Shares, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 73,301,667 ordinary shares with voting rights (excluding ordinary shares held in Treasury) and 10,281,430 ordinary shares held in Treasury which have no voting rights.

 

The New Ordinary Shares resulting from the exercise by the Warrant Trustee have been sold in the market at a price of US$2.15 per New Ordinary Share. The proceeds of such sale, after deducting the costs of exercising the Warrants, together with the exercise price which will be retained by the Company, will be remitted to those Ineligible Shareholders and Warrant holders who did not exercise their Warrants. Accordingly, Ineligible Shareholders will receive approximately US$0.146 per Warrant held and Warrant holders who did not exercise their Warrants will receive approximately US$0.146 per Warrant, provided that, in each case, entitlements of less than US$20.00 shall be retained for the benefit of the Company.
