This announcement is not an offer for sale, or a solicitation of an offer to acquire, securities in any jurisdiction, including in or into the United States, Canada, Australia, or Japan. Neither this announcement nor any part of it shall form the basis of or be relied on in connection with or act as an inducement to enter into any contract or commitment whatsoever.

Further to its announcement on 13 June 2018 of the proposed placing of 120,000,000 new shares of no par value in the Company at 2.5p per share (the “Placing“) to raise £3 million (before expenses), Upland Resources Limited (LSE: UPL), the oil and gas company actively building a portfolio of attractive upstream assets, is pleased to announce that the Placing was completed on admission of all the Placing Shares to listing on the UK Listing Authority’s Official List (standard listing segment) and to trading on the London Stock Exchange’s main market for listed securities (“Admission“) which became effective at 8.00 am today.

Directors’ participation

The Directors participated in the Placing and subscribed for an aggregate of 5,130,770 Placing Shares for aggregate £128,269.25 in cash (at the placing price of 2.5p per share), further details of which are set out in Part VIII (The Placing) of the Prospectus.

Total Voting Rights

Following Admission, the Company has 579,012,060 shares of no par value in issue, each with one vote per share (and none of which are held in treasury).
