("Ascent" or the "Company")


Issue of Equity


Ascent Resources plc, the AIM quoted European oil and gas exploration and production company, has received a notice of exercise ("the Notice") to convert 289 convertible loan notes of £1 each which were issued in May 2013 as part of an open offer to all shareholders (the "2013 Loan Notes") and the terms of which were amended in February 2015 and October 2016.  The 2013 Loan Notes, including rolled up interest, are convertible into new Ordinary Shares at a rate of 100 new Ordinary Shares per £1 loan note. 


Consequently, a total of 32,548 new Ordinary Shares ("the Conversion Shares") will be issued pursuant to the Notice, following which £3,191,163 nominal convertible loan notes (including rolled-up interest) remain outstanding.


Admission and Settlement


Application has been made for the admission to trading on AIM of the Conversion Shares ("Admission"). Admission is expected to occur on 29 June 2017.  Following Admission, Ascent will have 1,835,651,074 Ordinary Shares in issue.  There are no shares held in treasury.  The total voting rights in the Company is therefore 1,835,651,074 and Shareholders may use this figure as the denominator by which they are required to notify their interest in, or change to their interest in, the Company under the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
