The Company also announces the exercise of options held by employees of the Company (the "Option Exercise") in respect of a total of 60,000 new ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the Company (the "New Ordinary Shares"). The exercise price of the options is 100 pence each.

Application to Admission and Total Voting Rights

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for a total of 60,000 New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission") and Admission is expected to occur on 11 October 2019. The New Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares in the Company.

The Ordinary Shares which have been purchased will be held in treasury. Following the Transaction, the Company holds 117,500 Ordinary Shares in treasury. Therefore the total number of voting rights in the Company following the Transaction and Option Exercise  is 16,929,871 shares (divided into 14,729,871 Ordinary Shares not held in treasury, which are admitted to trading on AIM and entitle the holder to one vote per Ordinary Share; 2,200,000 B Ordinary Shares of 1 penny each which are not admitted to trading on AIM, but do still entitle the holder to one vote per ordinary share, but carry no economic rights) which 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 and Transparency Rules.
