Update on Avobone settlement agreement


As announced on 1 November 2017, the Company's lawyers agreed with Avobone's lawyers an extension on paying Avobone the balance of sums owed until 15 January 2017. Subsequently Avobone has sought to change the terms of that agreement, demanding that the Company provides further security. These additional requested terms are totally unacceptable to the Company, and are contrary to the agreement secured and confirmed by the Company's lawyers on 31 October 2017. Avobone was informed of this.


A petition has now been issued by the High Court Dublin returnable for hearing on 4 December 2017 seeking an order to wind up the Company by reason of the Company failing to discharge its outstanding liabilities to Avobone.


The Company has already provided security of payment and shall robustly defend the application.


San Leon can see no reason for Avobone's actions given the imminent payment expected to Avobone of all outstanding sums.


Trading in the Company's ordinary shares on AIM was suspended on 3 November 2017, and that suspension remains in place.
