("Lionsgold" or the "Company")
Suspension of Trading
Lionsgold (LON: LION) announces that the Company's ordinary shares will be suspended from trading with effect from 7.30 a.m. today.
The suspension has been applied under Rule 14 of the AIM Rules for Companies ("Rule 14") on the basis that it has been determined that the Company has undertaken a fundamental change of business through the acquisition of TRAC Technology Limited (now renamed Goldbloc Limited).
Concurrently with the release of Lionsgold's digital gold currency Goldbloc, on schedule as planned for this quarter, and the continuing development of its gold assets and opportunities in India and other jurisdictions, Lionsgold shall work with its advisers on the preparation of an AIM admission document and the process required for readmission to trading of its shares.
Lionsgold's ordinary shares will remain suspended until the Company fully complies with Rule 14. This process is expected to take three to four months to complete.
Further updates will be provided as appropriate.
