NIOX Group plc

("NIOX" or the "Company")

Proposed Capital Reduction Scheme
Notice of General Meeting


NIOX Group plc (AIM: NIOX), a company engaged in the design, development and commercialisation of medical devices for asthma diagnosis and management, announces that the Company intends to seek approval from its shareholders and from the High Court to cancel its share premium account in order to create distributable reserves.  This will provide flexibility to enable the Company to return any surplus cash to shareholders in future, whether by paying dividends or buying back its own shares.


While the Company has no immediate plans to return any cash to shareholders, the Directors believe that it is appropriate to restructure the balance sheet to permit them to do so should such plans crystallise in due course.


The proposed capital reduction scheme, in order to take effect, requires shareholders to pass a special resolution at a general meeting of the Company. A circular will shortly be sent to shareholders to convene a general meeting of shareholders on 6 October 2022 (the "General Meeting") in order for them to vote on the Company's proposed capital reduction scheme (the "Circular"). The General Meeting will be held at 10.00 a.m. on 6 October 2022 at the Company's registered office: Hayakawa Building, Edmund Halley Road, Oxford Science Park, Oxford, OX4 4GB.


An electronic copy of the Circular is now available on the Company's website at


If approved by shareholders, the capital reduction scheme will need to be confirmed by the High Court.  It is presently envisaged that the effective date of the capital reduction will be 18 November 2022.
