(?Altona? or ?the Company?)

Placing to Raise £735,000

The Board of Altona (AIM: ANR) is pleased to announce that it has raised £735,000 before expenses through a placing of 147,000,000 new ordinary shares (?Placing Shares?) at an issue price of 0.5p per share (the ?Placing?). 

The net proceeds of the Placing will primarily be used for further exploration that the Company expects to be identified by the recently commissioned report by Runge Pincock Minarco Global.

Details of the Placing  

The Placing Shares will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares.  An application has been made for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM which is expected to occur on 28 November 2017 (?Admission?).

Director?s participation in the Placing

Nick Lyth and Philip Sutherland, who are both directors of the Company, are participating in the Placing subscribing for 4,000,000 and 2,000,000 ordinary shares respectively.

Participation by Substantial Shareholders

Eaton Equities Limited (?Eaton?) and Leon Hogan have each subscribed for 5,000,000 ordinary shares each in the Placing.  Following the issue of the Placing Shares they will hold 13.8 per cent. each of the issued share capital.  As both Eaton and Leon Hogan are substantial shareholders in the Company their participation in the Placing is deemed a related party transaction under the AIM Rules.  The Directors of the Company consider, having consulted with the Company's nominated adviser, Northland Capital Partners Limited, that the participation in the Placing of Eaton and Leon Hogan is fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.

Qinfu Zhang, Executive Chairman of Altona, commented, "We are pleased to have raised this level of new funding with this oversubscribed placing.  This will strengthen our balance sheet and provide the necessary capital to ensure that we execute the early stages of our strategy and move the Company towards being operational.  In addition to being able to execute further exploratory work, the placing provides sufficient working capital for Altona for 12 months.?

Total Voting Rights

Following Admission, the Company?s enlarged issued share capital will comprise 1,558,956,853 ordinary shares with voting rights.  The Company has no shares held in Treasury.  This figure of 1,558,956,853 ordinary shares 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 their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA?s Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
