 Issue of Equity

Love Hemp Group PLC (AQSE: LIFE) (OTCQB: WRHLF), one of the UK's leading CBD and Hemp product suppliers, announces the issue of shares.

 

As announced on 3 February 2021, the Company and the vendors of Love Hemp Limited (the "Vendors")  agreed that settlement of the final deferred consideration of £2,000,000 due to the Vendors was to be satisfied by the issue of ordinary shares of 1p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares"), rather than in cash. As part of the final balance of this settlement, the Company has allotted 65,000,000 new Ordinary Shares at a price of 1.5 pence per share for a total value of £975,000.

 

The Company has also allotted 1,500,000 new Ordinary Shares at a price of 2 pence per share in lieu of debt repayments and for services for a total value of £30,000. Further, the Company has allotted 285,714 new Ordinary Shares at a price of 3.5 pence per share for a total value of £10,000. The proceeds from this issue will be used for general working capital purposes.

 

Following this allotment, Antony Calamita is now interested in 83,635,714 Ordinary Shares, representing 8.87% of the Company's share capital.

 

Application will be made for the new Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on the AQSE Growth Market and admission is expected to become effective, and dealings in the new Ordinary Shares are expected to commence, on 31 December 2021.

 

Following this issue, the Company has 942,248,881 Ordinary Shares in issue, each share carrying the right to one vote. The figure of 942,248,881 should be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

 

The Directors of the Company accept responsibility for the contents of this announcement.
