WARNING TO SHAREHOLDERS – EQUINITI STOCK REGISTRARS
We are aware that some Shareholders have received some unsolicited correspondence from “Equiniti Stock Registrars” in relation to their purported holding of warrants of Peter Hambro Mining PLC. The Company confirms that there are no such ‘ordinary warrants’ in issue and believes that this communication is likely to be part of some form of “advance fee” fraud in which an attempt is made fraudulently to obtain funds from the Company’s shareholders by deception.
The Company has reported this matter to the Financial Conduct Authority. The Company has also contacted The Equiniti Group, a bona fide group, which includes Equiniti Financial Services Limited, a company authorised under the Financial Conduct Authority. The Equniti Group has confirmed that ‘Equiniti Stock Registrars’ is not part of their group of companies. They are investigating this matter.
We advise all our Shareholders not to respond to any communication from Equiniti Stock Registrars and to contact either the Company, by contacting Amanda Whalley, Company Secretary, on 020 7201 8925 or via email at email@example.com, or the Financial Conduct Authority upon receipt of any such communication.
For your protection: Beware of unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters. If you are in any doubt about any information received regarding Peter Hambro Mining PLC or Petropavlovsk PLC we suggest you contact the Company directly before taking any action.
