Directors' Dealing 

Arc Minerals announces that following the announcement made earlier on 20 August 2018, the Remuneration Committee of the Company agreed in May 2018 to award bonuses to certain members of the board and senior management team, in recognition of the transformational progress management made over the past 16 months during which time the market value of the Company has increased from approximately £3.4M (31 March 2017) to in excess of £26M. The bonus was to be settled in new ordinary shares of no par value of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") following the publication of the annual results for the year ended 31 March 2018.

Accordingly, the Company has issued 3,000,000 ordinary shares to Nick von Schirnding (Executive Chairman), 1,200,000 ordinary shares to Chuck Forrest (CFO, non-board) and 1,200,000 ordinary shares to Vassilios Carellas (COO, non-board).  

Following the issue, Nick von Schirnding will have a beneficial interest in 11,103,795 ordinary shares representing an effective interest of 1.89% of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company. In addition, Mr von Schirnding has a beneficial interest in 11,620,125 share options equating to 1.98% of the Company's enlarged issued share capital.

Following the issue, Chuck Forrest will have a beneficial interest in 3,731,514 ordinary shares representing an effective interest of 0.64% of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company. In addition, Mr Forrest has a beneficial interest in 2,200,000 share options equating to 0.38% of the Company's issued share capital.

In addition, Mr Carellas has a beneficial interest in 10,605,515 share options equating to 1.81% of the Company's issued share capital.

As per the 2018 Annual Report announcement released on 20 August 2018, application has been made for 6,858,333 ordinary shares, including the 5,400,00 shares above, to be admitted to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange ('Admission').
