In the placing, KC Investments Limited ('KC Investments') has subscribed for 113,333,333 New Ordinary Shares at the Placing Price. £50,000 of their subscription monies were provided in advance by way of a loan for which the Company has agreed to pay a loan arrangement fee of £12,500 to be satisfied by the issue of 8,333,333 New Ordinary Shares at the Placing Price. In aggregate, therefore, KC Investments will be issued with 121,666,666 New Ordinary Shares (representing approximately 22.0 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company, as described below) at the Placing Price.

In consideration of their services in connection with the placing, the Company will pay to each of VSA Capital Limited ('VSA Capital'), Alexander David Securities Group plc and Wills & Co. a commission of a certain percentage of the aggregate value, at the Placing Price, of the New Ordinary Shares and of those shares placed as announced on 14 April 2009. Of this, the commission payable to Wills & Co. has agreed to be satisfied by the issue of 9,500,000 New Ordinary Shares (representing approximately 1.7 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company) at the Placing Price. VSA Capital will receive no commission on New Ordinary Shares placed by either Alexander David Securities Group plc or Wills & Co.

The Company has agreed to issue to Alexander David Securities Group plc 5,333,333 New Ordinary Shares (representing approximately 1.0 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company) at the Placing Price in satisfaction of a fee of £8,000 for preparing an analyst's report on the Company.

The £340,000 raised today is in addition to the £37,500 (before expenses) raised by the issue of 15,000,000 ordinary shares as announced on 14 April 2009. Therefore, in aggregate, more than £300,000 (before expenses) has been raised since the Company agreed to vary the terms of the secured convertible loan notes with RAB Special Situations (Master) Fund Limited on 27 March 2009, and, pursuant to its terms, the variation will become unconditional on Admission.
