PureTech Health plc (the "Company" or "PureTech")
Exercise of overallotment option - Admission to trading

 

Further to the announcement on 3 July 2015 that the overallotment option described in the Company's prospectus dated 19 June 2015 (the "Overallotment Option") has been fully exercised, it is expected that 10,139,943 ordinary shares of one pence each in PureTech will be admitted to trading on 6 July 2015. These shares are fully paid and rank pari passu in all respects with the existing issued ordinary shares of the Company.

 

Including these shares issued as a result of the exercise of the Overallotment Option, the total number of ordinary shares in issue as at 3 July 2015 was 237,387,951 at one pence each, with each share carrying the right to one vote. This figure of 237,387,951 represents the total voting rights in the Company and may be used by shareholders as the denominator for calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
