COMPLETION OF BRIGHT BRICKS ACQUISITION

Further to its announcement on 5 October 2018 (the "Announcement"), Live Company Group plc (AIM: LVCG) is pleased to announce completion of the acquisition of Bright Bricks Holdings Limited ("Bright Bricks"), following payment of the £2.167m cash consideration and issue of the 8,461,536 new ordinary shares of 1p each in the Company ("Consideration Shares") to the vendors of Bright Bricks ("Vendors").  The Consideration Shares were admitted to trading on AIM with effect from 8.00 a.m. today, 17 October 2018.

As set out in the Announcement, the Company had received an unconditional offer for a working capital facility. The Company has today entered into an agreement (the "Agreement") for the provision of a £1,000,000 loan facility (the "Facility") arranged by Riverfort Global Capital Limited. The Facility may be used for general working capital purposes, however, the Company has no current intention of drawing down on the Facility.

The Facility has a one-year term from drawdown. A commitment fee of 2.5% is payable on signing, and an implementation fee of 7% is deductible from the principal amount should the Company draw down on the Facility. Interest will apply on funds advanced at a rate of 9% per annum, and principal and interest is repayable on a monthly schedule (with an initial three-month repayment holiday and a final monthly principal repayment of £350,000). The Facility may be extended, by mutual agreement, for a further 6 months on similar terms and fees.  Additionally, the Company may make early repayment of the full Facility together with the full annual interest premium.  For each due repayment, the Company may elect, at their discretion, to grant to the lenders the right to convert such repayment into new ordinary shares in the Company instead of a cash repayment.  The conversion rights also apply in any event of default.

In addition, under the terms of the Agreement, the Company has today issued to the Investors 356,923 warrants to subscribe for ordinary shares of 1p each in the Company.  The warrants have an exercise price of 81.25p per share and may be exercised for a period of three years from issue.
