Completion of acquisition

Further to the announcement of 11 June 2019, Aquila, a company formed to acquire and operate growing businesses operating in the affordable housing services sector, is pleased to announce the payment of the balance of the Initial Price as contemplated under the share purchase agreement (the "SPA") of £942,667 (the "Further Payment").

A payment in cash of £202,012 has already been made to the Sellers on account of the Initial Price and the Further Payment, satisfied by both cash and the issue of new ordinary shares (the "Consideration Shares"), was determined by Oaks' financial performance to the year ended 31 March 2019 and subject to a Completion Account mechanism ("Completion").

The Further Payment comprises £212,419 in cash, and the issue of 2,544,415 Consideration Shares at £0.287 per share, being a sum equal to the average of the closing middle market price of an ordinary share of 5p each ("Ordinary Share") for each of the five Business Days immediately preceding Completion. 

Issue of Equity

Application has been made to the Financial Conduct Authority and to the London Stock Exchange for the 2,544,415 Consideration Shares, which will rank pari passu with all existing Ordinary Shares, to be admitted to the Official List and to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange ("Admission").  Admission is expected to take place on or around 14 November 2019.

Total Voting Rights

In conformity with rule 5.6.1 of the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules (the DTRs) the Company is notifying the market of the following:

As at Admission, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 37,852,191 ordinary shares of 5p each with voting rights. There are no shares held in treasury.

The above figure of 37,852,191 may therefore be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they may determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or change to their interest in, the Company under the DTRs.

Holding(s) in Company

Following the issue and allotment of the Consideration Shares, each of the two founders of Oaks have become interested in >3% of the Company's enlarged share capital. The two individual TR-1 notifications are set out in Appendix I below.

The information contained within this announcement is deemed by the Company to constitute inside information as stipulated under the Market Abuse Regulations (EU) No. 596/2014 ("MAR").
