("Shefa Gems" or the "Company")


Convertible Loan Agreement



Shefa Gems (LSE: SEFA), a company focused on advanced exploration and development of multi-gemstone projects in Northern Israel, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a convertible loan agreement over the provision of a further US$250,000 (approximately £192,300) (the "Agreement") with an existing lender to the Company ("the Lender") for working capital purposes and to fund the continued development of the Company.


Terms of the Loan

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Lender has agreed to provide a further loan of US$250,000 (approximately £192,300) (the "Loan").  Following the provision of the Loan, the Lender will have leant $600,000 to the Company in aggregate (following the provision of a loan of $350,000 as announced by the Company on 28 January 2020). 

The Loan, together with rolled up interest at 5%, is convertible into ordinary shares of the Company at a share price of 5 pence per share at any time until 31 May 2020. The Loan will be non-transferable. However, the lender can choose, at their sole discretion, to delay conversion to any time until 31 May 2021.

In the event that the Lender was to convert their loans into Ordinary shares in the Company, they could hold up to 9,350,000 Ordinary shares in the Company representing 4.7 per cent of the Company's issued share capital following such conversion.

Following conversion, the Company will grant the Lender one unlisted warrant for every share received on conversion, exercisable for a period of 24 months from the date of the conversion, at a price of 10 pence per warrant.  In the event that the Company's share price during the period 24 months after conversion, does not at any time reach 10 pence per share, the Lender will receive additional shares after 24 months in such an amount as to make the total number of shares issued to the Lender have a value, based on the market price at that time, of £384,600. 


Vered Toledo, CEO of Shefa Gems, said: "We are pleased with our valued supporters.  These are lenders who wanted to increase the loan they made on January 28, 2020 amounting to $350,000. The additional cash resources will support the Company's working capital purposes, in addition to supporting the development of our Project in the Kishon Mid-Reach area."
