Related Party Transaction

 

Nick Clark, Tony Barkwith, Freddie Jenner and Robert Fry (as Directors of the Company), and Jason Brameld and Jamie Finnan (as directors of one or more wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company) are classified as related parties under the AIM Rules for Companies and their participation in the Additional Subscription constitutes a related party transaction pursuant to Rule 13 of the AIM Rules for Companies.

 

Accordingly, Clive Carver and Tandeep Minhas, being the independent Directors for the purpose of the related party transaction, having consulted with the Company's nominated adviser, Strand Hanson, consider that the terms of the above-named individuals' participation in the Additional Subscription are fair and reasonable insofar as shareholders in the Company are concerned. 

 

Admission to trading on AIM and Total Voting Rights

 

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for admission ("Admission") of the new shares to be issued pursuant to the Additional Subscription to trading on AIM. It is expected that admission of the Additional Subscription shares will occur on or around 11 April 2024.

 

On Admission, the Company's issued ordinary share capital will consist of 335,655,938 ordinary shares of one penny each ("Ordinary Shares"), with one vote per share. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury. Therefore, on Admission, the total number of Ordinary Shares and voting rights in the Company will be 335,655,938. With effect from Admission, this figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

 

Concert Party interest

 

Following the issue of the Additional Subscription shares and Admission, the total holding of the Concert Party (as detailed in the Company's announcement on 2 March 2023) shall comprise 96,159,484 Ordinary Shares, representing 28.65% of the Company's enlarged issued Ordinary Shares. Nick Clark, Freddie Jenner (each a Director) and Jason Brameld (a PDMR) are members of the Concert Party.

 

Capitalised terms in this announcement shall have the same meaning as in the Company's announcement on 21 March 2024, unless otherwise specified.
