Tower Resources plc

Completion of Subscription and Director's Dealings

 

Tower Resources plc (the "Company" or "Tower" (TRP.L, TRP LN)), the AIM listed oil and gas company with its focus on Africa, is pleased to announce that, further to the Company's announcement earlier today outlining the proposed subscription (the "Subscription") for 20 million new Ordinary Shares (the "Subscription Shares"), the Company has successfully placed 20 ,000,000 new Ordinary Shares and raised gross proceeds totalling £ 50,000 at a Subscription Price of 0.25 pence per share. The Subscription Price of 0.25 pence per share represented a 2% premium over the closing price of the Company's shares on 23 June 2021

Pursuant to the Subscription, Jeremy Asher, Chairman and CEO, has entered into an Agreement (the "Subscription Agreement") to subscribe for 20 million   new Ordinary Shares in the Subscription for £ 50,000 as detailed below.

The participation of Jeremy Asher (the "Director Related Party") constitutes a related party transaction in accordance with AIM Rule 13. Accordingly, Paula Brancato and Mark Enfield, acting as the independent Directors, consider, having consulted with the Company's Nominated Adviser, SP Angel Corporate Finance LLP, that the terms of the Director Related Party participation in the Subscription is fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.

The following table sets out the Directors' shareholdings and percentage interests in the issued share capital of the Company following completion of the subscription.

§ This figure describes the ratio   of shares held immediately after admission to the fully diluted share capital; in the event that Mr Asher and Mr Enfield exercised all warrants and options they hold and continued to hold those additional shares after exercise, then their respective shareholdings after full exercise as a percentage of fully diluted capital would be 29.1% and  0.3% respectively.

 

SHARE CAPITAL FOLLOWING THE PLACING AND SUBSCRIPTION

Application has been made for the Subscription Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that Admission of the Shares will become effective and that dealings will commence by 8.00 a.m. on or around 1 July 2021.

Following admission of the Shares, the Company's enlarged issued share capital will comprise 1,749,911,416 Ordinary Shares of 0.001 pence each with voting rights in the Company. This figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in the interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
