Anglo Pacific Group PLC ("Anglo Pacific" or the "Company") (LSE: APF) (TSX: APY), announces that, further to the announcement on December 22, 2014, the Board is seeking to transfer the Company's listing category from a premium listing as a commercial company on the Official List to a standard listing on the Official List under Rule 5.4A of the Listing Rules (the "Proposed Transfer"). It is anticipated that, subject to shareholder approval, the Proposed Transfer will take effect at 8.00 a.m. on October 16, 2015.

Commenting on the Proposed Transfer, Julian Treger, Chief Executive Officer to Anglo Pacific, said:

"We have been in discussions with major shareholders about the move to a Standard Listing since early 2015 and have a clear commitment, following the move, to ensure Anglo Pacific will continue to maintain high standards of corporate governance. The move will provide us with greater flexibility as we continue to grow the business, whilst still providing all current and future shareholders with a high standard of protection from being a London listed company. As a shareholder myself, I support this move and believe it is the right thing for the next stage of Anglo Pacific's development"
