("Rose" or the "Company")
Convertible loan note
Rose Petroleum plc (AIM Ticker: ROSE) is pleased to announce that it has received notice from the holders of its convertible loan note to convert the outstanding loan notes in full.
Rose currently has a convertible loan note outstanding for £1m issued to Geiger Counter Limited in May 2012 which was due to be repaid at end of May 2017 (the "Convertible Loan"). Further details of the Convertible Loan are set out in the Company's announcement on 23 May 2012. Half of the Convertible Loan was subsequently transferred to City Natural Resources High Yield Trust plc.
The Convertible Loan is convertible by the holders at any time, into 80 million ordinary shares in Rose at a price of 1.25p (a 34 per cent premium to the mid-market price of 0.935p per ordinary share as at the close of business on 22 May 2012 being the day immediately before the Convertible Loan was entered into).
At the expiry of 10 business days from the notice being given, which was 5 June 2014, the Company shall allot and issue the ordinary shares under the Convertible Loan (the "Shares") and make an application for the Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM as soon as reasonably practical. Interest will continue to accrue until the issue of the Shares and will be paid in full on that date. The Convertible Loan will be cancelled in full at that time and the Company will have no outstanding convertible loan notes.

About Rose Petroleum
Rose Petroleum plc (AIM Ticker: ROSE) is focusing on developing its Oil & Gas portfolio, whilst seeking to create value from its existing mining portfolio. In 2013, Rose Petroleum raised additional capital, brought in an in-house technical team including geological and drilling expertise to pursue new Oil & Gas assets and, post year end, appointed John Blair as Head of New Ventures.
In January 2014, the Company announced that it had completed the acquisition of three licences in Germany, two licences in Baden-Württemberg covering approximately 635,000 acres (2,560 square kilometres) with each licence area represented to have at least four target pay zones, and the third licence covering 657,000 acres (2,640 square kilometres) located in the Weiden Basin (northeast Bavaria).
In March 2014, Rose signed a farm-in agreement under which its newly formed subsidiary, Rose Petroleum (Utah) LLC, can earn 75% of certain oil, gas and hydrocarbon leases covering approximately 195,000 net acres in Grand and Emery Counties, Utah, USA, within the Paradox and Uinta basins. This acreage was then increased to 230,000 in May 2014. Management intends to build on these projects to establish a balanced international asset portfolio.
