PureTech Health plc


Announcement Regarding Listing Rule 6.1.19R


PureTech Health plc ("PureTech" or the "Company") is subject to the requirements of Listing Rule 6.1.19R. Under Listing Rule 6.1.19R, shares held outside of the EEA states or by persons in the same group acting in concert who have an interest in 5% or more of a listed company's share capital, as well as shares held by directors of a listed company (and shares held by directors of subsidiary undertakings of a listed company) are not regarded as being held in public hands (the "free float"). The minimum free float requirement for premium listed companies is 25%.


PureTech has recently initiated dialogue with the UK Listing Authority ("UKLA") of the Financial Conduct Authority regarding the Company's free float and, at the Company's request, the UKLA has granted PureTech a modification to Listing Rule 6.1.19R to allow shares outside of the EEA (including the US, Canada, and Switzerland) in addition to shares held in EEA States to be included within the definition of the free float as it applies to the Company.  


Based on analysis of its latest available shareholder register and notifications of significant shareholdings received to date, the Company estimates that its free float, under the Listing Rule 6.1.19R definition, and taking into account the modification to allow inclusion of shares held outside of the EEA, is above 40%.
