Following the passing of the Resolutions, and in particular the Reduction Resolution (Resolution 6), the Board will make an application shortly, to the Court to obtain its approval to the Cancellation of the Company's Share Premium Account (as defined in the circular posted to shareholders on 9 August 2023).

Revised provisional dates have been obtained for the required Court hearings of the Company's application, but they are subject to change and dependent on the Court's timetable. If the hearings go ahead on the revised provisional dates, the present timetable provides that the final hearing, at which it is hoped that the Court will make an order confirming the Cancellation, will take place on 12 September 2023.

Prior to confirming the Cancellation, the Court will need to be satisfied that the creditors of the Company will not be adversely affected. The Company is satisfied, having taken advice, that it will be able to satisfy the Court in that regard.

The Cancellation does not take effect until the Court's order is filed with and registered by Companies House. The Board intends to file the required documentation with Companies House as soon as possible following the final Court hearing and, subject to compliance with all procedural requirements, Companies House will usually register the documents within 10 Business Days. On the present timetable, which is subject to change and dependent on the Court's timetable, this would mean that the Cancellation would take effect on or before 22 September 2023.

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the admission of the EIS/VCT Placing Shares to trading on AIM. Admission of the EIS/VCT Placing Shares is expected to occur at 8.00 a.m. on 6 October 2023.

Unless otherwise defined, capitalised terms within this announcement shall have the same meaning as those contained within the announcement dated 9 August 2023 under RNS number 7242I.

 

Further announcements will be made in due course, as appropriate.
