Cancellation of Scrip Dividend Alternative

Anglo Pacific Group PLC (“Anglo Pacific” or the “Company”) (LSE: APF, TSX: APY) announces that the scrip dividend alternative (“Scrip Dividend Alternative”) for the interim dividend for the year ending December 31, 2014 of 4.45p per ordinary share (“Interim Dividend”) has been withdrawn.

As per the shareholder circular sent to shareholders on December 12, 2014, where the ordinary share price is equal to or less than 92p on January 14, 2015, the Scrip Dividend Alternative will be cancelled and a cash dividend paid as if the offer and elections pursuant to it had not been made.  Recent market volatility has resulted in a decline in the value of Anglo Pacific shares to below this level as at market close yesterday.  Consequently, the Scrip Dividend Alternative has been withdrawn and the Interim Dividend will be paid wholly in cash on February 4, 2015.
