("Ace" or "the Company")
Issue of Ordinary Shares
Ace Liberty and Stone Plc (NEX: ALSP), the active property investment company, capitalising on commercial property investment opportunities across the UK, today announces that the Company has issued 1,950,000 Ordinary Shares.
The Ordinary Shares were issued to Dr Abdul Karim El-Rousstom following the exercise of his rights under Convertible Loan Notes with a principal amount of GBP1,500,000. Dr El-Rousstom used GBP300,000 of the newly converted notes to subscribe for 300,000 Ordinary Shares at a price of GBP1 each, and the balance of GBP1,200,000 as consideration for the exercise of 1,500,000 warrants to buy Ordinary Shares at price of 80p each. Under the terms of the Convertible Loan Note agreement the interest of GBP150,000 due to Dr El-Rousstom has been satisfied by the issue of 150,000 Ordinary Shares at GBP1 each.
Following these allotments, the total number of issued shares and the total number of voting rights in the Company is 45,148,368, of which Dr El-Rousstom now holds 9,717,896 or 21.52% of the Company's enlarged share capital. The total issued share capital is now GBP11,287,092.
The above figure of 45,148,368 should 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 to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
Following these allotments and the repayment of GBP300,000 of convertible loan notes, GBP2,275,000 of convertible loan notes and 2,605,450 warrants remain outstanding.
Separately, and further to the Company's announcement dated 24 October 2019, it was disclosed that 369,000 shares were issued at GBP1 per share in consideration for the settlement of invoices for services. The figure of 369,000 was incorrect and the correct figure was 367,000. As of 24 October 2019, the correct total number of voting rights in the Company was therefore 43,198,368.
The Directors accept responsibility for this announcement.
