Result of Current Tender Offer


Director's Dealing


Further to the announcement of the result of the Extraordinary General Meeting held on 23 November 2015, the Board of PME announces that the current tender offer for the purchase of up to 38,376,948 Ordinary Shares (representing 50 per cent. of the Ordinary Shares outstanding at the record date) at US$0.20 per Ordinary Share (the "Current Tender Offer") closed at 1.00 p.m. on 30 November 2015.


A total of 35,780,661 Ordinary Shares, comprising 46.6 per cent. of the Ordinary Shares outstanding, were validly tendered, and accordingly, all valid tender applications will be satisfied in full. It is expected that both the CREST settlement of the Current Tender Offer and the despatch of cheques in respect of certificated holdings, will take place on 4 December 2015.


As set out in the Current Tender Offer document, the 35,780,661 Ordinary Shares validly tendered will be cancelled. Therefore, with effect from 4 December 2015 the total number of voting rights attached to remaining Ordinary Shares will be 40,973,236.  The voting rights on all these shares are identical. This figure may be used by shareholders 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 Company, following 4 December 2015.


Lawrence Kearns, a Director of the Company, tendered 37,000 Ordinary Shares in the Current Tender Offer at the Tender Price of US$0.20 per share.  Following completion of the Current Tender Offer, Mr Kearns will hold 37,000 Ordinary Shares, which will represent 0.1% of Company's issued ordinary share capital following the cancellation of the Ordinary Shares validly tendered under the Current Tender Offer.
