THIS ANNOUNCEMENT CONTAINS INSIDE INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSES OF REGULATION 11 OF THE MARKET ABUSE (AMENDMENT) (EU EXIT) REGULATIONS 2019/310.

BWA Group PLC

 (“BWA” or the “Company”)    

Subscription of Loan Notes

BWA Group plc [AQSE: BWAP], which has mineral exploration licences both in Cameroon and Canada at various stages of development and is quoted on London’s AQSE Growth Market, announces an update to its funding strategy.

The Company had previously announced (9 March 2022) its intention to raise funds by way of an issue of new ordinary shares of 0.5p each (“Ordinary Shares”).  In subsequent discussions with potential investors, a general preference was expressed to make a further issue by the Company of convertible loan stock, following such issues in 2018 and 2019.

The Company is pleased to announce that it has received applications for £165,000 of 14% Convertible Unsecured Loan Notes (“Loan Notes”).  The Loan Notes are convertible to Ordinary Shares at 0.6 pence per Ordinary Share, the proposed issue price of the Ordinary Shares contemplated in the announcement of 9 March 2022, or redeemable, if not previously converted, on 30 April 2024.  Interest on the Loan Notes will be rolled up and converted along with the principal amount of the Loan Notes. The Loan Notes will not be listed on any market. 

The maximum permitted issue of Loan Notes is £350,000 and none have been issued prior to this current issue; the Company will update when further subscriptions are received.

The funds used will be used for general working capital purposes.

The Directors of BWA Group plc have subscribed for the following amounts of Loan Notes:

Director
Richard Battersby £5,000
Alex Borrelli                           £2,500
James Butterfield                           £2,500
James Hogg                           £5,000

The Directors of BWA are responsible for the contents of this announcement.
