March 22, 2024

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reconnaissance Energy Africa Ltd. (the “Company” or “ReconAfrica”) (TSXV: RECO) (OTCQX: RECAF) ( Frankfurt : 0XD) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Research Capital Corporation as the sole bookrunner and lead underwriter, on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters (collectively, the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase, on a bought-deal basis, 11,112,000 units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of C$0.90 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of C$10,000,800 (the “Offering“).

Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share“) and one common share purchase warrant of the Company (a “Warrant“). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of C$1.15 at any time up to 24 months from the closing of the Offering. In the event that, at any time four months and one day after the date of issuance and prior to the expiry date of the Warrants, the moving volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”), or other principal exchange on which the Common Shares are listed, is equal to or greater than C$2.50 for any 20 consecutive trading days, the Company may, within 10 business days of the occurrence of such event, deliver a notice to the holders of Warrants accelerating the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date of such notice (the “Accelerated Exercise Period”). Any unexercised Warrants shall automatically expire at the end of the Accelerated Exercise Period.

The Company has granted to the Underwriters an option (the “Over-Allotment Option”) to increase the size of the Offering by up to an additional number of Units, and/or the components thereof, that in aggregate would be equal to 15% of the total number of Units to be issued under the Offering, to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes, exercisable at any time and from time to time up to 30 days following the closing of the Offering.

The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for exploration and development activities, working capital and other general corporate purposes.

The closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about April 3, 2024 (the “Closing”), or on such other date as the Underwriters may determine, and is subject to the Company receiving all necessary regulatory approvals, including the acceptance of the TSXV to list, on the Closing, the Common Shares and the Warrant Shares.  

In connection with the Offering, the Company intends to file a prospectus supplement, to the Company’s short form base shelf prospectus dated February 29, 2024, with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Canada (except Québec). Copies of the base shelf prospectus and any supplement thereto to be filed in connection with the Offering, are and will be available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca.
