TOTAL VOTING RIGHTS
The Company announces that it has today conditionally allotted 771,713 new ordinary shares of no par value, each at a price of £1.00 per share following the exercise of the subscription rights attaching to 771,713 of the Company's issued subscription shares of no par value each. The new ordinary shares have been issued conditionally upon admission to trading on the Specialist Fund Segment of the London Stock Exchange plc's main market ("Admission"). An application for Admission will be made to the London Stock Exchange plc and it is expected that Admission will occur at 8:00 a.m. on 10 May 2021. Following Admission, the new ordinary shares will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares in issue.
The subscription shares exercised have been redeemed and cancelled by the Company for nil value with effect from 4 May 2021. There remain 44,547,822 subscription shares in issue.

Following Admission, the total number of ordinary shares in issue will be 371,702,160 and the total number of voting rights in the Company following Admission will be 371,702,160. There are no shares held in treasury.
Following Admission, the above figure of 371,702,160 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they may determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
