Valid acceptances have been received from Qualifying Shareholders in respect of 7,775,121 Open Offer Shares. This represents approximately 72 per cent. of the Open Offer Shares available under the Open Offer which, at the Issue Price, has raised approximately £0.43 million.

As detailed in the Announcement, under the terms of the Placing Agreement, the number of Conditional Placing Shares will therefore be scaled back to a total of 3,069,305 Ordinary Shares, which, at the Issue Price, has raised approximately £ 0.17 million.

Subject to the admission to trading on AIM of the 10,844,426 New Ordinary Shares ('Admission'), the Company will have raised a total of approximately £0.6 million (before expenses) pursuant to the Open Offer and Conditional Placing.
