 OFF-MARKET TAKEOVER BID - RECEIPT OF BIDDER'S STATEMENT

 

TAKE NO ACTION

 

Further to the previous announcements regarding a Notice of Intention to make
a takeover offer followed by a Revised Non-Binding and Indicative Proposal, MC
Mining Limited (MC Mining or the Company) has now received a copy of a
Bidder's Statement, dated 2 February 2024. The Bidder's Statement relates to
an off-market takeover bid by a consortium of joint-bidders for all of the
fully paid ordinary shares on issue in the Company they do not currently own
(Takeover Offer).

The joint-bidders include Senosi Group Investment Holdings Proprietary Limited
(Senosi) and Dendocept Proprietary Limited (Dendocept) and certain other
shareholders and associates who represent, in aggregate, 64.3%(1) of the
issued capital in the Company (together, the Consortium).  The Takeover Offer
is made by Goldway Capital Investment Limited (company registration number
3294426, a Hong Kong incorporated company and associate of the Consortium
joint bidders) and  proposes to acquire all of the MC Mining shares that the
Consortium currently does not own at a cash price of A$0.16 per share. The
Bidder's Statement has been lodged with the Australian Securities &
Investments Commission and the Australian Stock Exchange on 2 February 2024.

The established Independent Board Committee (IBC) reiterates that shareholders
should TAKE NO ACTION in respect of the Takeover Offer and Bidder's Statement
until the IBC has had the opportunity to fully consider the Bidder's
Statement. The Company will respond with a Target Statement that will include
an Independent Expert Report and the IBC's recommendation in relation to the
Takeover Offer under the Bidder's Statement. Until then, MC Mining
shareholders should not take any action.

Statement, please contact Tony Bevan, MC Mining's Company Secretary, on
