('EVR' or the 'Company')

Admission of Shares and Director/PDMR Dealings

EVR Holdings plc (AIM: EVRH), one of the leading creators of virtual reality content, announces the following.

Allotment of Shares and Warrants

Following the passing of the resolutions at the general meeting held yesterday, the Company has allotted 200,000,005 Placing Shares and 5,232,805 Adviser Shares. The New Ordinary Shares were admitted to trading on AIM today.

Pursuant to the Placing the Company yesterday issued a total of 33,333,324 Warrants exercisable at 1.85p per share at any time on or before 16 October 2019.

Total Voting Rights

Following the admission to trading of the New Ordinary Shares, EVR has 925,678,320 ordinary shares in issue. The Company holds no shares in treasury. The total number of voting rights that may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules will therefore be 925,678,320. The New Ordinary Shares rank pari passu in all respects with the Company's existing ordinary shares.

Directors' shareholding

As announced on 20 September 2016, Steven Hancock and Sean Nicolson subscribed for 882,352 and 882,353 Placing Shares respectively pursuant to the Placing, and Peter Read's QNUP pension trustee subscribed for 1,470,588 Placing Shares pursuant to the Placing, in each case at the issue price of 1.7p. In addition, Warrants with an exercise price of 1.85p have been issued in the proportion of one warrant for every six shares subscribed in the Placing.

The resultant holdings of shares and warrants of those directors are as follows:
