Caledonia Mining Corporation Plc: Final Results of Share Consolidation

ST HELIER, CHANNEL ISLANDS--(Marketwired - June 30, 2017) - Caledonia Mining Corporation Plc (the "Company") (TSX:CAL)(OTCQX:CALVD)(AIM:CMCL)announces that following the completion of the consolidation of the common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares") which became effective at 5pm (Eastern Time) on June 26, 2017 and the finalisation of the purchase and cancellation of fractional entitlements to post-consolidation Common Shares, the issued share capital of the Company is 10,553,873 Common Shares (of which 3,406,082 are represented by depositary interests in Common Shares that are traded on AIM (the "Depositary Interests")). There are no shares held in treasury. The total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 10,553,873 and this figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company.

The CUSIP number in respect of the post-consolidation Common Shares is G1757E113 and the ISIN code in respect of the post-consolidation Depositary Interests is JE00BF0XVB15.

The Common Shares continued to trade without interruption during the consolidation process. The Company is aware that some third party market information systems, for which it is not responsible, may not yet be providing accurate post-consolidation price information for the Common Shares and Depository Interests. Shareholders, if they are unsure as to any information provided by third parties, should refer to the official TSX, OTCQX and AIM quotation systems or contact their broker.

Following completion of the share consolidation and as stated in the Company's press release published on June 19, 2017, the Company intends to pursue a listing on the NYSE MKT LLC ("NYSE MKT"). Before it approves a listing, the NYSE MKT is expected to amongst other things observe the share price of the post-consolidation Common Shares for a short period in order to be satisfied that listing requirements continue to be met. The listing is therefore expected to occur on or about the middle of July 2017. The Company intends to terminate its trading facility for the Common Shares on the OTCQX at the same time as completion of the listing on NYSE MKT.

The Company repeats its statement from a previous press release of June 27, 2017 that for regulatory reasons following the implementation of the consolidation, the Company's stock trading symbol on the OTCQX has temporarily changed from CALVF to CALVD. This change will remain in effect until July 26, 2017, by which time it is anticipated that the Common Shares will have commenced trading on the NYSE MKT and the OTCQX trading facility for the Company will have been terminated. The trading symbol for the NYSE MKT will be advised in due course. Trading of Depository Interests (on AIM) under the trading symbol CMCL and trading of Common Shares (on the TSX) under the trading symbol CAL are unaffected.
