Curzon Energy Plc
("Curzon" or the "Company")

Letter of Intent Executed on a Potential RTO


Curzon Energy Plc (LON:CZN) the London Stock Exchange listed company, is pleased to announce that it has executed a letter of intent with the Sun Seven Stars Investment Group ("SSSIG") to potentially acquire a 100% interest in London Critical Metals Market ("LCMM"), the first unified global metals trading exchange  for critical metals that have few or no direct investment or trading options elsewhere in the World.

The Company will now enter an initial period of exclusivity with SSSIG during which each party will conduct due diligence on the other.  The parties have agreed that during this period they will work towards the execution and delivery of a definitive purchase agreement contemplating a reverse takeover of Curzon by LCMM ("RTO"), including receipt of the required regulatory approvals from the FCA and its primary market functions.  The due diligence period is expected to last approximately 1 month.

For providing SSSIG with an initial period of exclusivity lasting through to 30 June 2020, SSSIG will lend the Company an initial amount of £125,000 in the form of a one-year loan note carrying an annual interest rate of 10% per annum, convertible at the price of any subsequent share issue in the contemplated RTO transaction.

After 30 April 2020, further loan funds may be made available by SSSIG to the Company if the envisaged transaction continues to progress, or in order to extend the initial period of exclusivity beyond 30 June 2020.
