Metal Tiger plc (LON: MTR), the London Stock Exchange AIM quoted investor in strategic natural resource opportunities, is pleased to announce the conversion of 30,000,000 1.6p warrants held by Terry Grammer, Non-Executive Director of Metal Tiger.
- Terry Grammer, Non-Executive Director, has invested £480,000 to exercise the 30,000,000 warrants at 1.6p per warrant in Metal Tiger which will result in Terry Grammer being issued with 30,000,000 ordinary shares in the Company. Following this conversion and the issue of these shares Terry Grammer will be interested in 68,150,667 ordinary shares in the Company or 6.69% of the Company.

The 30,000,000 new ordinary shares are expected to be admitted to trading on or around 18 October 2017.
Following the issue of the new ordinary shares, the number of ordinary shares in issue in the Company will increase to 1,018,628,768. For the purposes of the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules ("DTRs"), the issued ordinary share capital of Metal Tiger following this allotment consists of 1,018,628,768 ordinary shares with voting rights attached (one vote per share). There are no shares held in treasury. This total voting rights figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, Metal Tiger under the DTRs.
Michael McNeilly, Chief Executive Officer of Metal Tiger commented:
