   On 21 March 2017, Orogen announced that it intended 
   to dispose of its mineral exploration interests 
   and to change its business strategy. The decision 
   to cease the Company's mineral exploration activities 
   represented a fundamental change of business 
   under Rule 15 of the AIM Rules for Companies 
   and, following a general meeting of Shareholders 
   on 7 April 2017, Orogen became an AIM Rule 15 
   cash shell. 
 
   On 26 May 2017, Orogen announced that it had 
   signed heads of terms with Thread 35 Limited 
   ("Thread") to acquire Thread's entire issued 
   share capital, which comprises the A Shares 
   and the B Shares in Thread, subject to certain 
   conditions and due diligence. The Company has 
   now agreed to acquire the A Shares and has made 
   an offer to acquire the B Shares in Thread (the 
   "Offer"). The acquisition of Thread by Orogen 
   is a reverse takeover under AIM Rule 14, and 
   therefore subject to approval by Orogen Shareholders 
   at a general meeting, and is conditional, inter 
   alia, on the receipt of acceptances of the Offer 
   in respect of at least 90% of the B Shares in 
   Thread. 
 
   Thread, trading under the name "Sosandar", was 
   incorporated and registered in England and Wales 
   on 16 March 2015 with registered number 09491272. 
   Sosandar is an online womenswear brand specifically 
   targeted at a generation of women who have graduated 
   from younger online and high street brands, 
   and are looking for affordable clothing with 
   a premium, trend-led aesthetic. 
 
   Sosandar was launched on 19 September 2016 following 
   ten months of preparation that included building 
   the management team, designing the initial Sosandar 
   range, sourcing suitable suppliers, appointing 
   a logistics provider and building the website. 
   The Sosandar business model is built around 
   using trend-led, in house designs that are sourced 
   from a variety of specialist global suppliers 
   to cater for a growing market of fashion conscious 
   women, while utilising an outsourced logistics 
   provider that can support its planned growth.
