Condor Gold Completes GBP6.41M Placing and a Subscription with IFC

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - Oct. 27, 2014) - Condor (AIM:CNR) is pleased to announce it has entered into an equity subscription agreement (the "Subscription Agreement") with International Finance Corporation ("IFC") the private sector arm of the World Bank Group to raise gross proceeds of approximately £3.51M (the "IFC Subscription"). This will complete the fundraising of £6.41M announced on 11th September 2014 ("See RNS dated 11th September 2014 for further details).

IFC has subscribed for Units (as defined below) at a price of 90p per Unit (the "Subscription Price") to raise gross proceeds of £3.51 million. Completion of the IFC Subscription is conditional, inter alia, upon admission of the shares to trading on AIM.

Each Unit is comprised of one ordinary share of 20p each in the Company ("the IFC Shares") and one half of one share purchase warrant of the Company (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant, which is unlisted, will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one ordinary share at a price of 144p (which is at a 60% premium to the Subscription Price) for a period of 48 months from the date on which the IFC Shares are issued pursuant to the IFC Subscription and are admitted to trading on AIM. Following the IFC Subscription, IFC will hold 3.9 million ordinary shares and 1.95 million Warrants in the Company. Following Admission the IFC will hold an 8.53% shareholding in the Company.

Details of the IFC Subscription and TVR

Application is being made for the 3,900,000 IFC Shares, to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission") and subject to the Subscription Agreement not having been terminated in accordance with its terms, such Admission is expected to occur on or around 30th October 2014.

On Admission the IFC Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared after the date of their issue.

Following Admission the Company will have 45,732,316 ordinary shares of 20p each in issue with voting rights, admitted to trading on AIM. This figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculation by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
