(the "Company"), a reporting issuer in certain jurisdictions in Canada. In accordance with such early warning requirements, Stratex International plc's wholly-owned subsidiary Stratex Gold AG ("Stratex") is required to report certain information in respect of its expected holdings of securities of Tembo Gold Corp.

Pursuant to a subscription agreement (the "Subscription Agreement") between Stratex, NAMF II (Mauritius) Limited and NAMF II South Africa Partnership, Concept Capital Management Limited (collectively, the "Investor Group") and the Company dated November 25, 2013, Stratex agreed to subscribe for an aggregate of 17,500,000 Units of the Company at a price of $0.10 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one common share ("Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant of the Company ("Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.12 per Share for a period of three years from the closing date. Please refer to the press release of the Company dated November 15, 2013 for additional detail with respect to the transaction. The previous subscription agreement reflected in the news release dated October 28, 2013 was mutually terminated by the Investor Group and Company.
The Company currently has outstanding 49,586,213 Common Shares on a non-diluted basis. Assuming the completion of the maximum financing indicated in the press release of the Company dated November 15, 2013 of $8.25 million, Stratex will own 17,500,000 Common Shares or approximately 13.2% of the outstanding Common Shares on a non-diluted basis. Stratex will also own 17,500,000 Warrants and if exercised an aggregate of 35,000,000 Common Shares or approximately 23.4% of the outstanding Common Shares on a partially-diluted basis. As of the date hereof, Stratex has not completed its purchase of the Units pursuant to the Subscription Agreement. It currently does not own any other securities of the Company.
The Investor Group is acting jointly and in concert in making their investment and intend to enter a private voting arrangement in connection with their investment which provides for, among other things, the pooling of the Common Shares owned by the Investor Group members for purposes of voting in favour of or against any resolution proposed before or at a Company meeting submitted to them for vote by round-robin resolution, the exercise of the collective voting rights, certain restrictions on encumbrances, the establishment of a pooling agent and certain rights with respect to the disposition of the Common Shares.
Collectively, the Investor Group members have agreed to subscribe for 62,500,000 Units. The issuance of Units to the Investor Group and assuming the completion of the maximum financing indicated in the press release of the Company dated November 15, 2013 of $8.25 million, including those Common Shares of the Company currently held by the Investor Group, will represent approximately 49.2% (65,000,000 Common Shares) of the issued and outstanding Common Shares on a non-diluted basis and up to approximately 59.4% (127,500,000 Common Shares on exercise of the Warrants) of the issued and outstanding Common Shares assuming exercise of the Warrants by the Investor Group.
The securities are to be acquired for investment purposes. The Investor Group will evaluate the investment in the Company from time to time and may, based on such evaluation of market conditions and other circumstances, increase or decrease security holdings in the Company as required. The Subscription Agreement provides each Investor Group member with a right to maintain its pro rata interest in the Company, subject to the Investor Group member maintaining a minimum 5% equity interest in the Company.
