Stratex International Plc

(“Stratex” or the "Company”)

Sale of Goldstone Stake & Board Change

 

Stratex (AIM:STI), the AIM-quoted gold exploration and development company, announces the sale of its 13.7 per cent stake in Goldstone Resources Limited ("Goldstone") to institutional investors at a price of 1.6 p per share for total cash consideration of £0.55m.

Following dilution of Stratex’s shareholding in Goldstone, resulting from a recent capital raise, the Company’s ownership has dropped below what is considered meaningful with regard to the ability to influence Goldstone’s strategy and direction and consequently no longer meets the Company’s investment criteria. The Goldstone investment was equity-accounted with a carrying value of £0.95m as at 30 June 2017. For the year ended 31 December 2016, Stratex recognised a loss of £0.79m before tax and non-controlling interests in respect of Goldstone’s operations. The proceeds of the sale will be used for general corporate purposes.

In conjunction with the above sale, Stratex wishes to advise that Ms Emma Priestley has resigned as a Non-Executive Director of the Company effective today, due to her full-time commitments as Chief Executive Officer and director of Goldstone. Emma wishes the directors well in their future endeavours. Emma has served as a director since November 2014.
