Metal Tiger Plc

('Metal Tiger' or the 'Company')

Investment Update - Request for Shareholder Meeting at Kingsgate Consolidated Limited for Potential Board Changes

Metal Tiger plc (LON:MTR), announces that it has requested ASX listed Kingsgate Consolidated Limited ('KCN') to call and hold a general meeting of KCN shareholders to consider changes to the board of KCN.

Metal Tiger owns 14,950,427 shares in KCN, representing a 6.7% interest, and based on public disclosures by KCN, Metal Tiger is KCN's largest shareholder and the only shareholder with an interest of over 5% of KCN.

Metal Tiger's request for the meeting of KCN shareholders has been made under Section 249D of the Australian Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) which enables any member, or group of members acting as a collective, with at least 5% of the votes that may be cast at a general meeting to request that the board of KCN convene and hold the shareholder meeting.

Upon receipt of a Metal Tiger's valid request, the KCN directors are required to call the meeting within 21 days of receiving the request and the meeting is required to be arranged for a date not later than 2 months after the request is given to KCN.

The proposed resolutions that Metal Tiger is seeking be put to the KCN shareholders are that all existing KCN directors other than Mr Peter Alexander be removed and that 5 new directors be appointed to the KCN board, being three Metal Tiger directors:

  • Michael McNeilly;
  • Terry Grammer; and
  • Mark Potter,

and two independent candidates nominated by Metal Tiger, namely:

  • Richard (Dick) Warburton; and
  • Neville Bergin.

Metal Tiger has decided to take this action in order to both preserve and enhance the value of its shareholding.

Michael McNeilly, Chief Executive Officer of Metal Tiger commented:

'Metal Tiger believes that KCN is in urgent need of board renewal. The incumbent board has overseen a massive destruction of shareholder value and failed to articulate a clear strategy going forward. The Board of Metal Tiger shares the view that they are not the right team to lead KCN in its current situation. I call on Ross Smyth-Kirk, Sharon Skeggs and Peter Warren to meet our requests for the benefit of all KCN shareholders.'

Background on the independent candidates nominated by Metal Tiger are set out below:

Richard (Dick) F E Warburton AO LVO

Notes to Editors:

Metal Tiger plc is listed on the London Stock Exchange AIM Market ('AIM') with the trading code MTR and invests in high potential mineral projects with a precious and strategic metals focus.

The Company's target is to deliver a very high return for shareholders by investing in significantly undervalued and/or high potential opportunities in the mineral exploration and development sector timed to coincide, where possible, with a cyclical recovery in the exploration and mining markets. The Company's key strategic objective is to ensure the distribution to shareholders of major returns achieved from disposals.

Metal Tiger's Metal Projects Division is focused on the development of its key project interests in Botswana, Spain and Thailand. In Botswana, Metal Tiger has a growing interest in the large and highly prospective Kalahari copper/silver belt. In Spain, the Company has tungsten and gold interests in the highly-mineralised Extremadura region. In Thailand, Metal Tiger has interests in two potentially near-production stage silver/lead/zinc mines as well as licences, applications and critical historical data covering antimony, copper, gold, silver, lead and zinc opportunities.

The Company has access to a diverse pipeline of new opportunities focused on the natural resource sector including physical resource projects, new natural resource centred technologies and resource sector related fintech opportunities. Pipeline projects deemed commercially viable may be undertaken by Metal Tiger or by an AIM or NEX Exchange (formerly ISDX) partner with whom the Company is engaged.
