Blue Star Capital plc

("Blue Star" or the "Company")


Issue of Equity


Blue Star Capital plc (AIM: BLU), the investing company with a focus on technology and its applications within media and gaming, is pleased to announce that it has raised £250,000 (before expenses) through the issue of 250,000,000 new ordinary shares at a price of 0.10 pence per ordinary share (the "Placing"), conditional on the admission of such new ordinary shares to trading on AIM ("Admission").


Tony Fabrizi (Chief Executive Officer of Blue Star), and Sean King (Non-Executive Director of Blue Star) have each invested £12,000 as part of the Placing. Following the Placing, Tony Fabrizi's holding in the Company will be 42,000,000 shares, representing 1.9% of Blue Star's so enlarged share capital. Sean King's holding in the Company will be 18,250,000 shares, representing 0.8% of Blue Star's so enlarged share capital. 


The proceeds of the Placing are intended to be used principally for working capital purposes and to give the Company flexibility to look at new investment opportunities in the future.


Application will be made for the new ordinary shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that Admission will become effective at 8.00 a.m. on or around 4 July 2019. 


The new ordinary shares will be issued credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares.


Following Admission, the total number of ordinary shares in issue will be 2,242,582,852. The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of ordinary shares with voting rights will be 2,242,582,852. This figure 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 to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.


The Directors' participation in the Placing is deemed to be a Related Party Transaction for the purposes of Rule 13 of the AIM Rules. Mr William Henbrey, being the sole independent director of the Company for the purposes of the Directors' participation in the Placing, considers, having consulted with the Company's Nominated Adviser, that the Directors' participation is fair and reasonable in so far as the Shareholders are concerned.


This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014.
