Following admission, the Company's enlarged share capital will comprise 40,343,446 Ordinary Shares.  Therefore the total number of Ordinary Shares with voting rights is 40,343,446.  This figure 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 under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
