Admission of New Shares

Further to the Company's announcement of 30 August 2023, application has been made for admission ("First Admission") of 315,533,332 new ordinary shares of 0.02 pence each in the Company to trading on AIM. First Admission is expected on or around 2 October 2023, and on First Admission the new ordinary shares will rank pari passu with the Company's existing ordinary shares. As previously advised, these new ordinary shares will be allotted to a number of service providers that have provided services to the Company over the past 6 months, in lieu of fees otherwise payable in cash.

The Company has also today received a conversion notice in respect of £165,000 of outstanding convertible notes pursuant to the Facility advised in the Company's announcement of 30 August 2023, which will require the Company to issue a further 458,333,333 new ordinary shares. A further application has thus been made for admission of this amount of additional new ordinary shares to trading on AIM, with admission expected on or around 5 October 2023 ("Second Admission"). On Second Admission the further new ordinary shares will rank pari passu with the Company's existing ordinary shares.

On First Admission, the total issued share capital of the Company will consist of 9,935,732,811 ordinary shares. The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury. Therefore, as previously advised, from First Admission the total number of voting rights in the Company will be 9,935,732,811 and this figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

On Second Admission, the total issued share capital of the Company will consist of 10,394,066,144 ordinary shares. The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury. Therefore, from Second Admission the total number of voting rights in the Company will be 10,394,066,144 and this figure may be used from that time by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
