Further to the announcement on 14 August 2019, the Company now has the required share authorities to enable the Placing Warrants to be exercised in full. As previously announced, the Company will issue 100,000,000 warrants in aggregate, to the subscribers of the Placing Shares. Having participated in the Placing, Antony Laiker (Executive Director) will be issued with 6,250,000 of the warrants.

Total Voting Rights

Further to the announcement on 14 August 2019, an application has been made for the admission of the Antony Laiker Subscription Shares to trading on AIM ("Admission"), which is expected to take place at 8:00 a.m. on 2 September 2019.

On Admission, the issued share capital of the Company will consist of 1,718,943,717 Ordinary Shares with one voting right each. The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of ordinary shares and voting rights in the Company will be 1,718,943,717.  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.

From Admission, Antony Laiker (Executive Director) will be beneficially interested in 301,175,301 Ordinary Shares representing approximately 17.52 per cent of the Company's issued share capital as enlarged by the Antony Laiker Subscription Shares.

Defined terms used in this announcement shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the Company's Circular dated 14 August 2019.
