In addition, the Company is also pleased to announce that, pursuant to a Share Subscription Agreement dated 12 December 2011, The Oriental Petroleum & Chemical Equipment Co., Limited, an Asian based business associate of the Company, will subscribe for 3,571,429 Ordinary Shares at 7 pence per share, raising a further £250,000. The new ordinary shares will be issued when duly paid, which is expected to be on or around 15 January 2012, and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary share.
