Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for admission to trading of the 3,441,000 new Ordinary Shares on AIM ("Admission") in respect of the exercise of the share options. It is expected that Admission will take place and that dealings in the new Ordinary Shares on AIM will commence at 8:00 a.m. on 6 October 2016, at which time the sale of Ordinary Shares will occur. The new Ordinary Shares will, when issued, be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends or other distributions made, paid or declared in respect of such shares after the date of issue of the new Ordinary Shares.

 

Allergy Therapeutics' enlarged issued ordinary share capital immediately following Admission will be 593,364,020 Ordinary Shares with voting rights attached. The Company has no Ordinary Shares in Treasury; therefore, the total number of voting rights in Allergy Therapeutics is 593,364,020. This figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine whether they are required to notify an interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
