Result of Placing

 

Successful Placing raising gross proceeds of approximately £10.7 million

 

The Conygar Investment Company PLC is pleased to announce the completion of the placing announced earlier today, 17 December 2021 (the "Placing").

The Placing was conducted by way of accelerated bookbuild. The book build process has now closed and the Company is pleased to announce that, due to good levels of demand, 7,138,998 Placing Shares have been conditionally placed with certain institutional and other investors at a Placing Price of 150 pence per Placing Share, raising gross proceeds of approximately £10.7 million for the Company.

All of the directors of the Company participated in the Placing for 704,000 Placing Shares in aggregate, at the Placing Price.

 

The Placing and settlement

The Placing Shares when issued, will represent approximately 12.0 per cent. of the Company's enlarged ordinary share capital.

The Placing Shares, when issued, will be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares.

The placing of up to 5 million Placing Shares pursuant to the Placing will use the existing shareholder authorities available to the Company which were granted by Shareholders at the 2020 AGM, and the placing of Placing Shares in excess of 5 million Placing Shares will use the shareholder authorities proposed to be made available to the Company at the 2021 AGM and will therefore be conditional upon the approval of the relevant resolutions by Shareholders at the 2021 AGM. The Placing is also conditional, inter alia, on the Admission of the Placing Shares to AIM and the Placing Agreement not being terminated in accordance with its terms. Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings in the Placing Shares will commence on or around 8.00 a.m. on 22 December 2021.
