IMImobile PLC

("IMImobile" or the "Company")

Exercise of options and result of secondary placing

On 10 July 2018, IMImobile announced that it had been notified by certain employees of the Company, including the PDMRs listed below of their intention to exercise options over 3,216,543 Option Shares. The Company also announced that it had been notified by the Selling Shareholders of their intention to sell in aggregate up to a maximum of 3,995,869 Placing Shares.

IMImobile today announces that options to subscribe for 3,216,543 Option Shares have been exercised by certain employees, including the PDMRs listed below. The Company also announces that the Selling Shareholders have, subject to completion, sold 3,995,869 Placing Shares, representing approximately 6.4 per cent. of the issued share capital.

The Placing Shares were placed at a price of 300 pence per share and were sold to institutional investors in a placing managed by Investec Bank plc and Whitman Howard Limited. The Company is not a party to the Placing and will not receive any direct proceeds from the Placing.

Application has been made for the admission to AIM of 3,216,543 Option Shares. The Option Shares which rank pari passu with the Company's existing issued ordinary shares, are expected to be admitted to trading on 17 July 2018 ("Admission") and settlement and dealing in the Placing Shares will also occur on Admission.

Following Admission, the Company's enlarged issued share capital will comprise 65,304,229 ordinary shares. The Company holds zero shares in treasury. Therefore, when calculating voting rights, shareholders should use the figure of 65,304,229 as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

Defined terms in this announcement shall have the same meaning as those set out in the Company's announcement of 10 July 2018.
