Posting of Shareholder Circular

Proposed Capital Reorganisation

Notice of General Meeting

 

Inspirit Energy Holdings PLC (AIM: INSP), the developer of micro Combined Heat and Power (microCHP) boiler, announces that, further to its announcement of 4 May 2018, it has today posted a Circular to Shareholders convening a General Meeting (the "GM") to seek approval for (i) the Capital Reorganisation that will allow for the issue of the New Ordinary Shares to be issued on conversion of the Convertible Loan Notes (the "CLN's") and (ii) a general authority to allow the Directors to issue a further 650,000,000 New Ordinary Shares. The GM will be held at The Broadgate Tower, 20 Primrose Street, London, EC2A 2EW on 10 a.m. BST on 6 June2018. A copy of the Circular is also available on the Company's website www.inspirit-energy.com.

 

The Company is proposing to hold a general meeting on 6 June 2018 to consider and, if thought fit, approve the Capital Reorganisation and to grant the directors authority to issue new Ordinary Shares for cash. The Resolutions are set out at the end of this announcement.

As announced on 4 May 2018, the Company issued Series A Convertible Loan Notes and Series B Convertible Loan Notes totalling £845,000 (together the "CLN's"). The principal amount of the CLN's are convertible at the higher of either 0.07p per Existing Ordinary Share or a discount of 25 per cent. to the previous trading day's closing market share price. Therefore, given the market price of the Existing Ordinary Shares has for much of the last 6 months been less than 0.1 pence which is the nominal value of such shares and indeed the current price is 0.0475p, and that the issue of shares at less than nominal value of the Existing Ordinary Shares is prohibited by the Act, it is necessary for the nominal value of the Existing Ordinary Shares to be reduced below 0.07p (being the lowest possible conversion price of the CLN's). It is therefore proposed to undertake the Capital Reorganisation which will have the effect of reducing the nominal value of each Existing Ordinary Share in the Company to considerably below 0.07p.

A summary of the principal terms and conditions of the Series A Convertible Loan Notes and the Series B Convertible Loan Notes are set out in paragraph 3 of the Circular.

The Capital Reorganisation, which comprises a sub-division of shares has been structured so that each New Ordinary Share created pursuant to the Capital Reorganisation shall have a nominal value of 0.001 pence.

The number of Ordinary Shares in issue, and held by each Shareholder, as a result of the passing of the relevant resolutions will not change. It is simply the nominal value of the Existing Ordinary Shares which will change.

Furthermore, previous share allotments have utilised all of the Directors' current authorities to issue Ordinary Shares free of pre-emption rights and accordingly the Company is seeking Shareholders' authority to issue New Ordinary Shares in order to:

·        facilitate the issue of New Ordinary Shares under the terms of the Series A Convertible Loan Notes to the Related Parties and other third party debt;

·       facilitate the issue of New Ordinary Shares under the terms of the Series B Convertible Loan Notes; and

·       provide additional headroom for the future issue of further New Ordinary Shares up to an aggregate nominal amount of £6,500 being 650,000,000 New Ordinary Shares. If such authority were to be granted, the 650,000,000 New Ordinary Shares would represent approximately 24.7% of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company following conversion of the Series A Convertible Loan Notes and the Series B Convertible Loan Notes, assuming the Series A Convertible Loan Notes and the Series B Convertible Loan Notes converted at a price of 0.07 pence per New Ordinary Share.

Purpose of Capital Reorganisation

It is proposed that each Existing Ordinary Share of 0.1 pence each in the capital of the Company be sub-divided into 1 New Ordinary Shares of 0.001 pence each and 1 B Deferred Share of 0.099 pence each ("Capital Reorganisation"). This will result in 1,420,806,859 New Ordinary Shares and 1,420,806,859 B Deferred Shares being in issue immediately following the Sub-Division.

The B Deferred Shares will have no rights and the Company will not issue any share certificates or credit CREST accounts in respect of them. The B Deferred Shares will not be admitted to trading on AIM.

The objective of the Capital Reorganisation is to reduce the nominal value of the Existing Ordinary Shares to below 0.07p in order to allow for any conversion of the unsecured Series A Convertible Loan Notes and Series B Convertible Loan Notes and to provide the Company with the ability to consider future share issues.

Admission of the New Ordinary Shares

Application will be made for the New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM in place of the Existing Ordinary Shares. It is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings in the New Ordinary Shares will commence on 7 June 2018.

The ISIN and SEDOL in respect of the Existing Ordinary Shares remain unchanged in respect of the New Ordinary Shares.

Shareholders who hold Existing Ordinary Shares in uncertificated form will have such shares disabled in their CREST accounts on the Record Date, and their CREST accounts will be credited with the New Ordinary Shares following Admission, which is expected to take place on 7 June 2018.

Following the Capital Reorganisation, existing share certificates will continue to be valid.[ and new share certificates are expected to be despatched to those Shareholders who hold their Existing Ordinary Shares in certificated form, on or around 7 June 2018. No share certificates will be issued in respect of the B Deferred Shares.

NOTE: the total shares in issue is, and following the Capital Reorganisation will be, 1,420,806,859 New Ordinary Shares. This differs by 2 shares to the previously announced total shares in issue of 1,420,806,857 Ordinary Shares and results from a previous transposition error. Shareholders should use 1,420,806,859 Ordinary Shares as the shares now in issue.
