Thailand Acquisition - Corporate Update


Metal Tiger plc (LON: MTR) the London Stock Exchange AIM listed investor in strategic natural resource opportunities is pleased to announce an update in relation to the Company's corporate activities in Thailand.


On 24 November 2015 Metal Tiger announced the option to acquire 90% of the remaining South East Asia Mining ("SEAM") Thailand operations and assets including licences in application.  This option was agreed following extensive review by Metal Tiger of the interests held by SEAM and the potential additional value such an acquisition could bring to Metal Tiger today, and more importantly going forward.


The acquisition was subject to two principle stages and firstly the approval of the transaction by SEAM shareholders. 


Metal Tiger can confirm that during a meeting of SEAM shareholders on 12 January 2015 the transaction with Metal Tiger was approved and is now in a position to proceed subject to Metal Tiger electing to proceed and exercise its option to acquire SEAM.


Due diligence work is continuing and in recent weeks Metal Tiger has been on the ground with its technical advisors to assess the Thailand operations and to determine the technical and commercial viability of the proposed acquisition. 


Progress with due diligence has been very positive to date from a technical perspective and whilst we remain optimistic that this transaction will proceed as planned, there can be no guarantee at this time that Metal Tiger will elect to exercise the option.  We are continuing to complete a number of standard due diligence steps and will report back to the market in due course.
