Chaarat temporarily suspends AIM trading in connection with acquisition proposal

Chaarat Gold Holdings Limited, the BVI-incorporated holding company of the Chaarat Group, which is focused on gold mining and exploration in the Kyrgyz Republic, has temporarily suspended trading of its ordinary shares on AIM from 24 April 2018. This was done in connection with the proposal that Chaarat has made in relation to the potential acquisition of the Kumtor mine from Centerra Gold Inc. 

The proposed acquisition due to its size would be a reverse takeover. For this reason trading in Chaarat’s ordinary shares was suspended in accordance with the AIM Rules, and will remain suspended pending the publication on the required AIM Admission Document. At this stage, there is no certainty that the proposed acquisition will be completed, and Chaarat will provide updates in respect of further developments.
