Block Admission


The Company announces that an application has been made for a block admission to trading on AIM in respect of 700,000 ordinary shares of 1p each ("New Ordinary Shares") in the share capital of the Company (the "Block Admission").  It is expected that the Block Admission will become effective on 29 November 2021.


The New Ordinary Shares will be issued from time to time pursuant to the Company's employee share schemes (the "Incentive Schemes"), as follows:


· 300,000 shares in respect of the Long Term Incentive Plan;

· 300,000 shares in respect of the Share Option Plan; and

· 100,000 shares in respect of the Employee Share Purchase Plan.


When issued, the New Ordinary Shares will be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares of the Company.


The Block Admission is considered adequate for anticipated exercises of options under the Incentive Schemes for the foreseeable future.


As at 24 November 2021, the Company's issued share capital consisted of 76,007,757 ordinary shares of 1p each with voting rights. The Company's issued share capital will not change as a result of the Block Admission. The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in Treasury.
