The Company is pleased to announce that at the General Meeting held earlier today all the resolutions were duly passed.

 

The first resolution approved the sale of the Company's Existing Business and Assets to the BFS Buttons Limited (the "Disposal").

 

The Company will today receive the consideration, which is payable on Completion of £10,000.  Any consideration due in relation to the Additional Sum will be paid in accordance with the terms of the Sale Agreement by 10 December 2015.

 

The Disposal, which will be completed by close of business today, constitutes a fundamental change of business of the Company under Rule 15 of the AIM Rules and the Company will therefore trade as an Investing Company from tomorrow morning. The Investing Policy was also approved by Shareholders at the General Meeting today. 

  

As an Investing Company, the Company will be required to make an acquisition or acquisitions which constitute a reverse takeover under the AIM Rules or otherwise implement its Investing Policy within 12 months, failing which, the Company's Ordinary Shares would then be suspended from trading on AIM. If the Company's Investing Policy has not been implemented within 6 months of suspension from trading on AIM, the Ordinary Shares would be cancelled and the Directors will convene a general meeting of the Shareholders to consider whether to continue seeking investment opportunities or to wind up the Company and distribute any surplus cash back to Shareholders.
