NAPP completion

Following the announcement of 12 February 2015, all conditions and necessary clearances have been met and accordingly the 1,266,074,005 consideration shares have now been issued at the placing price as announced at that time.  The consideration shares will be admitted to trading on or before 23 April 2015 but will be subject to lock-in until the Directors' of NAPP have completed the NAPP member's voluntary liquidation.  The lock in does not cover disposals required by the liquidator to meet the costs of liquidation, which are expected to be de minimus.

 

The Directors of NAPP have already commenced proceedings to wind up NAPP through a members' voluntary liquidation and to distribute its residual assets (comprising substantially the Northcote Consideration Shares) to its shareholders on a pro-rata basis.  The Directors expect this process to complete no earlier than July 2015.
