AFARAK GROUP PLC HAS RESOLVED ON A DIRECTED SHARE ISSUE

Stock Exchange Release

Afarak has resolved on a direct share issue without consideration (“Share Issue”) of total of 4,965,265 Afarak’s treasury shares to its South African subsidiary Chromex Mining Company (Pty) Ltd (“Chromex SA”).

Share Issue is resolved in order to accomplish and execute ownership arrangement in Chromex SA that will result in additional ownership of mining assets in South Africa. This will benefit the Company as the Group's parent company. Thus, from the Company’s point of view especially weighty financial reasons exists for the deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive right.

The Share Issue take place in accordance with the decisions of the Afarak Board of Directors, on the basis of the authorization given by the Annual General Meeting of Afarak on 22 June 2020.

Due to the relevantly modest size of the transaction and the fact that the Company is increasing its ownership in assets that it already controls, the Company is not expecting the transaction to affect the financial performance of the Group in 2021.
