Fractional entitlements resulting from the Share Re-organisation will be sold for the benefit of Shareholders other than amounts of less than £5.00 which the Company will retain for its own benefit.

Application has been made for the Enlarged Share Capital to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that restoration of trading on AIM in the Existing Ordinary Shares and Admission will become effective and that dealings in the Enlarged Share Capital will commence at 8.00am on 3 May 2017.

Following completion of the Company's Share Re-organisation and Admission, the Enlarged Share Capital will comprise 71,714,285 Ordinary Shares. Each Ordinary Share has one voting right.  No Ordinary Shares are held in treasury.  Accordingly, the total number of voting rights will be 71,714,285.

The above figure may be used by Shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, N4 Pharma plc under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Defined terms used in this announcement shall have the same meaning as in the Company's admission document published on 13 April 2017, copies of which are available on the Company's website.
