("Journeo" or "the Group" or "the Company")

Placing of 513,750 Ordinary Shares to raise £256,875

 

Journeo plc (AIM: JNEO), the information systems and transport technical services group, is pleased to announce it has raised £256,875 before expenses by way of a placing of 513,750 ordinary shares of 6.5 pence each ("Ordinary Shares") at 50 pence per Ordinary Share (the "Issue Price") (the "Placing Shares") (the "Placing").

 

The placing was driven by investor interest and the Directors deemed it prudent and sensible at the current time to use their remaining authority to meet the investor interest and strengthen the cash position of the Company.

 

The Issue Price is equal to the closing middle market price of 50 pence on 2 April 2020. The Placing is not being underwritten and is conditional on admission of the Placing Shares to trading on AIM. The Placing is being conducted pursuant to the existing authorities granted to the Directors of the Company at its general meeting on 2 December 2019. The Placing Shares represent approximately 5.9 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital as enlarged by the Placing Shares.

 

Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission") and it is expected that such Admission will occur at 8.00 a.m. on 9 April 2020. The Placing Shares will be issued credited as fully paid and will rank in full for all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid after the admission of the Placing Shares, respectively and will otherwise be identical to and rank on Admission pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares. The Placing Shares are not being made available to the public and are not being offered or sold into any jurisdiction where it would be unlawful to do so.

 

Following Admission, the Company will have 8,741,250 Ordinary Shares in issue, none of which will be held in treasury.  Accordingly, the total number of voting rights in the Company will be 8,741,250 and shareholders may use this figure 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 Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
