This Announcement includes release of insider information

Weatherly International plc

("Weatherly" or "the Company")

Board change

The Board has today been informed that Edwin Bennet, a director of the Company and appointee of Orion Mine Finance ("Orion"), a significant shareholder, has tendered his resignation as a director. The Company is involved in negotiations with Orion to agree a long term restructuring of its secured debt facilities with Orion and to avoid the formal, quarterly amendments to its debt facilities.  Mr Bennet is mindful that his ability to play a meaningful role as director is inevitably compromised by his also being the representative of the Company's largest shareholder and creditor. We thank Mr Bennet for his contribution to the Company's leadership over the past two years.
