The Company has therefore issued and allotted 20,000,000 New Ordinary Shares for the receipt of £240,000. The New Ordinary Shares rank pari-passu with existing Ordinary Shares and will be admitted to trading on AIM when the current suspension is lifted.

In accordance with the provisions of the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules of the FCA ("DTRs"), the issued ordinary share capital of Lionsgold following the issue of the New Ordinary Shares is 532,459,296 Ordinary Shares with voting rights attached (one vote per share). There are no shares held in treasury, therefore this figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, Lionsgold under the DTRs.

 

Director/PDMR Shareholdings

Included in the New Ordinary Shares figures set out above, Yarramen Corp Limited, which is owned by a family trust of Lionsgold's CEO Cameron Parry, exercised warrants to subscribe for 5,000,000 New Ordinary Shares. Also included in the above table, 6,000,000 warrants were exercised by Lionsgold's Global Strategy Consultant, Mr Alan Davies, 500,000 warrants were exercised by Lionsgold's CFO, Mr Adam Ronaldson, and 500,000 warrants were exercised by Goldbloc Limited's CEO, Mr Ralph Hazell.
