Reviewed Interim Results for the Six Months Ending 30 June 2021

LONDON, 23 SEPTEMBER 2021


Gemfields is pleased to announce the Company’s financial results for the six months ending 30
June 2021 (“2021 Interim Results”). The content of this short-form announcement is the
responsibility of the board of directors of the Company.


Shareholders are advised that this short-form announcement represents a summary of the
information contained in the full announcement and does not contain full or complete details of
the financial results.


Sean Gilbertson, CEO of Gemfields, commented:


“We are delighted to announce our return to strong operational and financial performance after the Covid-induced
horrors of 2020. These results are a testament to the hard work put in by our teams in the first six months of the
year, including their textbook re-opening of the world’s largest emerald and ruby mines which produced no new
gemstone supply for a year given the need to preserve cash in the wake of the pandemic. With the mines back in full-
swing, a much-improved cash position and the step-change in market demand we’ve witnessed in our recent auctions,
we are palpably excited about the remainder of 2021.”


Any investment decision by investors and/or shareholders should be based on the consideration
of the full announcement as a whole and shareholders are encouraged to review the full
announcement as a whole and shareholders are encouraged to review the full announcement which
