Advised Metals Exploration Plc on a Reduction of Capital and Capital Reorganisation

Advised Metals Exploration Plc on a reduction of capital as a part of a capital reorganisation of the company. Metals is an AIM listed company that is engaged in mineral resource exploration and development in the Philippines. The reduction of capital has restructured the company’s balance sheet to eliminate accumulated losses on the company’s profit and loss account, providing the company with flexibility to pay dividends and/or make distributions to shareholders in the future. The capital reduction was approved by the High Court of England and Wales on 19 July 2022 and subsequently registered at Companies House thereafter. As a part of the capital reorganisation, the entire share capital of the company was subdivided into New Ordinary shares and Deferred shares, with the Deferred shares and the entire existing Share Premium Account of the company being subsequently cancelled. The capital reduction has created a pool of distributable reserves which can now be used in the future to absorb losses and/or effect distributions or other returns of value to shareholders.

Nick Heap, Partner in the U.K. Capital Markets team, led the transaction assisted by William Bainbridge (Associate Solicitor) and Cameron Sutton (Solicitor – qualified in Western Australia).
