Executive Directors Brian Larkin and Jonathan Leather increase their Shareholdings

Following Admission of the Warrant Shares Mr Larkin, the Company's CEO, and Mr Leather, the Company's COO, intend to sell a portion of Warrant Shares to fund the subscription price of the warrants, but their overall shareholding in the Company will increase from 1.56% to approx. 2.5% in case of Mr Larkin and from 0.78% to approx. 1.2% in case of Mr Leather. A further announcement detailing the exact resultant shareholding will be made in due course.

 

Application for Admission

Application has been made for the Warrant Shares to be admitted to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange ('Admission'). The Warrant Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing issued ordinary shares of £0.01 pence each in the capital of the Company. Admission is expected to occur at 8.00am on 20 May 2021.

 

Total Voting Rights

Following the issue of the Warrant Shares, the total issued share capital of the Company will consist of 644,803,969 ordinary shares of £0.01 pence each carrying the right to one vote. There are no shares currently held in treasury. The total number of voting rights in the Company will therefore be 644,803,969 and this figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
