Highlands Natural Resources plc ('Highlands' or 'the Company')

Reduction of Capital Approved

Highlands, the London-listed natural resources company, announces that further to the announcement on 24 July 2018 and the passing of the requisite resolution at the Company's Annual General Meeting ("AGM") last month, the Court has confirmed the reduction of capital of the Company at a hearing earlier today, and the Court order and statement of capital have been delivered to and registered by Companies House. The reduction of capital is therefore effective with the nominal value of each Ordinary Share in the Company reduced from five pence to one penny per share and the Company's Share Premium Account has been cancelled. Trading in the shares with a nominal value of one penny will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 26 September 2018.


Details of the reduction of capital were set out in the AGM notice published by the Company on 24 July 2018. In summary, the effect of the reduction of capital is to create distributable profits on the balance sheet of the Company. The Directors believe that, subject to the future performance of the Company, this should give Highlands the ability to make distributions to shareholders in the future, as and when the Directors may consider that it is appropriate to do so. However, the Directors cannot give any guarantee that the Company will make any distributions, or provide guidance as to the size of the distributions if any are made.


The reduction of capital does not involve any distribution or repayment of capital or share premium by the Company and will not reduce the underlying net assets of the Company. Accordingly, pursuant to the reduction of capital becoming effective, the Company's issued share capital now comprises 118,164,367 ordinary shares with a nominal value of one penny each. This is the same number of issued shares as before the reduction of capital, although the nominal value has changed. Existing share certificates remain valid.
