LONDON, ENGLAND / ACCESSWIRE / January 8, 2024 / Argo Blockchain plc, a global leader in cryptocurrency mining (LSE:ARB)(NASDAQ:ARBK), is pleased to announce it has raised, subject to Admission, gross proceeds of £7.8 million ($9.9 million) by the issue of 38,064,000 new ordinary shares of £0.001 each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") at a price per share of £0.205 to certain institutional investors (the "Placing"). The Placing price represents a discount of approximately 1 per cent to the 30 trading day VWAP of the Company's existing ordinary shares for the period ended on 5 January 2024, and a discount of approximately 24 per cent to the closing mid-price of the Company's ordinary shares on 5 January 2024. The new Ordinary Shares being issued represent approximately 7.06 per cent of the existing issued ordinary share capital of the Company prior to the Placing.

The net proceeds of the Placing are expected to be used by the Company for working capital, the repayment of indebtedness, and for general corporate purposes. The Placing is limited to those certain institutional investors that have already subscribed and this announcement should not be considered an offer or solicitation to purchase or subscribe for securities in the United States.

The new Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares in issue and application will be made for the new Ordinary Shares to be admitted to the Official List and to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange PLC. Admission is expected to occur, and dealings in the new Ordinary Shares commence, on 11 January 2024.

Tennyson Securities (a trading name of Shard Capital Partners LLP) acted as the Company's agent for the Placing.

Total Voting Rights

Following both the Private Placement Admission and the previously announced PSU Admission, the Company will have a total of 577,001,363 Ordinary Shares in issue. No Ordinary Shares are held in treasury. The above figure may be used by the Company's shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they can determine whether they are required to notify their interest in, or a change of their interest in, the Company under the FCA Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
