Accordingly, the Company has issued 30,545 Ordinary Shares today (the "New Shares"). Application has been made to admit the New Shares to trading on AIM ("Admission").

For the purposes of the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules ("DTRs"), the issued ordinary share capital of the Company following Admission will consist of 62,052,130 ordinary shares with voting rights attached (one vote per ordinary share). There are no ordinary shares held in treasury. This total voting rights figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interests in, or a change to their interest in, the Company.
