PME African Infrastructure Opportunities plc
("PME" or "the Company")
(AIM: PMEA.L; PMEW.L)
Availability of annual report and accounts
The Company confirms that copies of its annual report and accounts for the year ended 31 December 2011 were posted to shareholders on Wednesday, 6 June 2012 and are available on the Company's website www.pmeinfrastructure.com.
Warrantholders are advised, that in accordance with the terms of the Warrant instrument dated 6 July 2007, the subscription date for exercise of the Warrants for 2012 shall be 6 July 2012 being the date 30 days after the date on which copies of the audited accounts of the Company for its then immediately preceding financial year are despatched to shareholders.
As previously announced, since this is the final year in which Warrantholders may exercise a right to acquire Ordinary Shares, Warrantholders should note that the subscription rights attached to the Warrants will lapse on or around 7 July 2012. An application will be made to cease the quotation of the Warrants on AIM and the Warrants shall cease to exist thereafter. In light of the material difference between the Subscription Price (US$0.72) and the price of the Ordinary Shares (US$0.195 as at the close of business 1 June 2012), there is no prospect of a Trustee exercising any unexercised Warrants on behalf of the Warrantholders.
