Accordingly, application has been made to AIM for the admission of 124,000,000 Placing Shares at 8.00 a.m. on 20 March 2017.

Following the announcement of the Offer on 3 February 2017, LTG has acquired in aggregate 1,000,000 NetDimensions Shares in the market at an average price of 98.23 pence per share, representing approximately 1.95 per cent. of the entire issued share capital of NetDimensions at the First Closing Date.  No other NetDimensions Shares are held by or on behalf of LTG as at the date of this announcement.
