Caledonia Mining Corporation Plc (“Caledonia”) is incorporated in Jersey. The rights of the shareholders of Caledonia may be different in certain respects from the rights of shareholders of a company incorporated in the United Kingdom or other jurisdictions (e.g. Canada or the US). It should be noted that significant shareholders (which under the AIM Rules are any persons with holdings of 3% or more of Caledonia’s securities) are required to notify to Caledonia their holdings as is similarly required under the United Kingdom’s Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules which are incorporated by reference in Caledonia’s articles of association. Caledonia is a non-DTR company (as defined under the AIM Rules) and so, in accordance with the notes to AIM Rule 17, shareholders are advised that statutory disclosure of significant shareholdings of Caledonia is different to that of a DTR company and therefore may not always ensure compliance with the requirements of AIM Rule 17. Under the securities laws in Canada, an “insider” of Caledonia (which would include a shareholder who beneficially owns, controls or has direction over more than 10% of Caledonia’s common shares) is required to report their holdings in accordance with the applicable regulations. There are also reporting obligations that apply to holders of Caledonia’s shares under US law, in particular Schedule 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 which requires a person or group of persons who acquire more than 5% of Caledonia’s shares to file a report with the SEC.

Caledonia has 12,118,823 common shares issued. The Directors and management own or have an interest in 451,982 common shares representing 3.73% of Caledonia’s issued capital.
