Chamberlin plc (AIM: CMH.L), the specialist castings and engineering group , is pleased to announce the following updates:

Result of General Meeting, Issue of Equity and Total Voting Rights

All resolutions put to shareholders at the Company's General Meeting held earlier today, were duly passed on a poll. The poll results were as follows:

 
 Resolution      For        %     Against    %     Withheld 
     1        3,769,484   99.34   25,005    0.66     542 
             ----------  ------  --------  -----  --------- 
     2        3,769,484   99.34   25,005    0.66     542 
             ----------  ------  --------  -----  --------- 
     3        3,769,174   99.33   25,315    0.67     542 
             ----------  ------  --------  -----  --------- 
     4        3,769,484   99.34   25,005    0.66     542 
             ----------  ------  --------  -----  --------- 
 

Note: A vote "Withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes "For" and "Against" shown.

As detailed in the circular issued by the Company on 19 February 2021 (the "Circular"), following completion of the Share Capital Reorganisation, each Existing Ordinary Share of 25p has been sub-divided into one Ordinary Share of 0.1 pence and one Deferred Share of 24.9 pence.

In addition, the Company announced that it had received on 19 February 2021, new funding of GBP200,000 from Mr Trevor Brown by way of an unsecured convertible loan note instrument to help support the short-term working capital requirements of the Company, resulting in Trevor Brown being issued with GBP200,000 Notes. Following the passing of the Resolutions, the Notes have automatically converted into 3,333,333 New Ordinary Shares (at a Conversion Price of 6.0 pence per New Ordinary Share) and following Admission, Trevor Brown will hold 3,333,333 Ordinary Shares representing 29.52 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital.

Application has been made for the New Ordinary Shares of 0.1p each to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings in the New Ordinary Shares will commence on 9 March 2021. For the avoidance of doubt, the current suspension of trading of the Existing Ordinary Shares on AIM will not be lifted by the London Stock Exchange as a result of Admission.

Following Admission, the total number of Ordinary Shares of 0.1p each in the capital of the Company in issue will be 11,291,459 with each Ordinary Share carrying the right to one vote. There are no ordinary shares held in treasury and therefore the total number of voting rights in the Company is 11,291,459. The above figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations 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 Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Directorate Change

Further to the announcement dated 19 February 2021, the Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Trevor Brown as a non-executive director with immediate effect.

Corporate Update

As previously reported, the Board has been rigorously investigating the possibility of new equity capital and alternative measures to ensure the Company's future. After evaluating all current options with its advisers, the Board was of the opinion that the initial funding by Trevor Brown under the Notes represented the best short-term opportunity. Given Trevor Brown's experience, the Board believe his appointment as a non-executive director will be significantly beneficial and help maximise the ability to exploit all other avenues of funding which might be available to the Group.

The Board continues to explore all other funding possibilities, which if secured, the Board believes will demonstrate to the Company's auditor (and creditors, including HSBC), that the Company is able to continue to trade on a going concern basis in order to be able to publish and file its annual audited accounts for the year end 31 March 2020, publish its interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2020 and apply for the suspension of trading of the Existing Ordinary Shares on AIM to be lifted by the London Stock Exchange.

Further announcements will be made, as appropriate.

Terms defined in the Circular dated 19 February 2021 apply throughout this announcement, unless the context requires otherwise.
