The Open Offer closed for receipt of applications at 11.00 a.m. on 26 June 2020 in accordance with its terms. The Company announces that it has received valid applications in respect of 292,295 Open Offer Shares from Qualifying Shareholders, including applications under the Excess Application Facility. This represents 55.1 per cent. of the Open Offer Shares offered pursuant to the Open Offer. Qualifying Shareholders who have validly applied for Open Offer Shares will, subject to the conditions below, receive their full Open Offer Entitlement.

Accordingly, the Company has raised £11.8 million in aggregate (before expenses) through the Placing, Subscription and Open Offer and has issued and allotted 3,096,604 New Ordinary Shares, conditional only on Admission becoming effective. Admission is expected at 8.00 a.m. on 30 June 2020.
