Note 1: Issued Share Capital.

 

Note 2: A 'vote withheld' is not a vote under English law and is not counted in the calculation of votes 'for' or 'against' a resolution.

 

The Company is disappointed to note that the resolution to re-elect the Chairman was not approved by a majority of the Company's independent shareholders, and confirms that in accordance with the UKLA Listing Rules this resolution will be put to shareholders of the Company at a general meeting to be held within 90 and 120 days of today's date.  Dr Keith Hellawell will remain in his role until the date of that general meeting.

Dr Hellawell commented as follows:

"I take this clear message from our independent shareholders seriously, and I will do my best to address their concerns and earn their confidence over the next year.  I have confirmed today that should I not receive the support of a majority of our independent shareholders at next year's AGM, I will step down at that time with immediate effect."

Ends.
