Share Consolidation

 

In addition, following the passing of the resolutions at the Annual General Meeting, and conditional on Admission (as defined below) the share consolidation will take effect on 21 June 2019 so that every 100 existing ordinary shares of no par value will be consolidated into one new ordinary share of no par value ("New Ordinary Share"). Details of the share consolidation and effect on shareholders were set out in the announcement and circular sent to shareholders on 31 May 2019. Following the share consolidation and with effect from tomorrow, the Company's ISIN for its ordinary shares of no par value will change to JE00BJYJFG60 and the SEDOL will change to BJYJFG6.

 

Application has been made to AIM for 14,006,757 New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). It is expected that such Admission will become effective and that dealings will commence in the New Ordinary Shares at 8.00 a.m. on 21 June 2019.

 

Shareholders who hold their existing ordinary shares in uncertificated form will have their CREST accounts credited with the New Ordinary Shares on 21 June 2019. Existing share certificates will cease to be valid and new share certificates will be despatched to those shareholders who hold their shares in certificated form on or around 5 July 2019.

 

Total Voting Rights

 

With effect from Admission, the Company's issued ordinary share capital will comprise 14,006,757 ordinary shares of no par value, with one voting right each. The Company does not hold any shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of ordinary shares and voting rights in the Company is 14,006,757. This figure may be used by shareholders 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 FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
