Total Voting Rights

The Company confirms today that it has issued ordinary shares in the Company to certain existing and previous Non-Executive Directors of the Company pursuant to the NED Share Scheme.

As announced on 11 March 2021 and 26 July 2021, Philip Shelley, Simon Lough and Helen Sinclair have agreed to receive ordinary shares in the Company in lieu of 25 per cent of the fees that would otherwise be due to be paid to them by the Company in respect of the 12 month period commencing on 1 December 2020 and ending on 30 November 2021. The ordinary shares for the period ending 30 November 2021, being the second tranche have been issued today at a price of 50.7p (being the 30 day VWAP ending 30 November 2021). The number of shares issued are calculated after the deduction of relevant tax.

In addition, 6,460 ordinary shares were issued to non-executive directors who have subsequently left the firm, in lieu of 25% of their salary accrued up to the date of their departure.

Accordingly, the Company has issued 33,897 Ordinary Shares today (the "New Shares"). Application has been made to admit the New Shares to trading on AIM ("Admission"). Admission is expected to become effective on 11 February 2022 and the New Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the Company's existing ordinary shares in issues.

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 62,086,027 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.
