Result of General Meeting, additional listing and board changes


Result of General Meeting


MAM Funds plc ("MAM" or the "Company"), the AIM quoted fund management group announces that, at a General Meeting of the Company held earlier today, the Company's shareholders approved all the resolutions proposed in the circular dated 26 January 2011.


The proposals related to a fundraising of up to £20 million by way of a placing of up to 60,606,061 ordinary shares of 0.1p each ("Ordinary Shares"), redemption of outstanding preference shares, repayment of outstanding bank debt and the appointment of a new management team.


Additional listing and total voting rights


Application has been made for 60,606,061 new Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and it is expected that trading in the enlarged share capital will commence at 8.00 a.m. tomorrow ("Admission").


Following Admission, the Company's enlarged issued share capital will comprise 132,500,736 Ordinary Shares with one voting right per share.  There are no shares held in treasury.  The total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 132,500,736.


This figure of 132,500,736 Ordinary Shares may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FSA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.


Board changes


Ian Dighé and Graham Hooper have been appointed to the board of the Company and Colin Rutherford and Adrian Collins have stepped down from the board.  Gervais Williams is expected to join the board of the Company on 1 March 2011.


Ian Dighé, Chairman, MAM Funds plc, said:


"Today heralds a new chapter for MAM, as the Group is debt free, has a significantly strengthened capital base and new management team. I would like to take the opportunity to thank both Adrian Collins and Colin Rutherford for their contribution to the Company since joining the Board in March 2008.


"We now embark on a new phase to grow the business and create a leading UK investment management business. This is an exciting time and the foundations are firmly in place for MAM to achieve its objective."
