Ortac increases stake in Casa Mining Limited and

Share Issue - Director's Share Dealing

 

Ortac Resources Ltd ("Ortac"), the AIM listed exploration and mine development company, is pleased to announce that on 21 October 2016 it acquired 124,722 shares in Casa Mining Limited ("CASA") ("Casa Shares"). 62,788 Casa Shares were acquired from AMC Limited and 61,934 Casa Shares were acquired from Carter Capital Limited, both companies being controlled by Anthony Balme, the Executive Chairman of Ortac.

 

Ortac will satisfy the consideration due for the Casa Shares by issuing 251,296,486 New Ordinary Shares of no par value of Ortac ("New Ordinary Shares") to Anthony Balme at a deemed price of 0.0325 pence per share for a total consideration of GBP£81,671.36.

 

Following the issue of New Ordinary Shares, Anthony Balme will have an interest in an aggregate of 753,890,249 Ordinary Shares of no par value of Ortac ("Ordinary Shares"), representing 10.10% of the enlarged share capital of the Company.

 

Vassilios Carellas, Ortac's CEO, commented: "This purchase of Casa Mining shares takes Ortac's shareholding to 21.25%, which not only materially increases Ortac's interest in CASA, but also aligns Mr Balmes interests in CASA to those of the Ortac shareholders".

 

Admission of New Ordinary Shares

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM, with admission expected to become effective on 27 October 2016. The New Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid in respect of the ordinary share capital of the Company following Admission.

 

Following Admission, there will be 7,463,507,859 Ordinary Shares in issue. This figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in or a change to their interest in Ortac, under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
