CloudCall (AIM: CALL), a leading cloud-based software business that integrates voice communications into CRM platforms, reports that further to its announcement on 5 August 2016 regarding a placing to raise up to £3.77 million, it has now received clearance from HMRC confirming the Company qualifies for the relevant tax reliefs in connection with the VCT/EIS Placing. The Company will therefore benefit from the receipt of proceeds of £1.57 million (net of expenses), in connection with the VCT/EIS Placing.


The proceeds from the VCT/EIS placing will be used to fund new product development, including the launch of a new messaging products, based around SMS and instant messaging technologies. With the launch of the new products, the Board believes that the Company will be able to attract new customers by leveraging its experience within the integrated communications market.

Following Admission the Company will have 20,060,348 ordinary shares of 20p each in issue, admitted to trading on AIM. This figure (20,060,348) may be used by Shareholders 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 Company.


Unless otherwise defined, capitalised terms in this announcement shall have the same meaning as those defined in the Circular to shareholders detailing the Firm Placing and VCT/EIS Placing, dated 5 August 2016.

"The clearance from HMRC and resulting additional funds, means we can now move ahead with the development and launch of new messaging and SMS services which will enhance our offering.
