For the reasons set out above, the participation by the Directors referred to above in the Subscription is classified as a 'related party transaction' for the purposes of Rule 13 of the AIM Rules. Dr Caroline Stretton, John Ely and Geoffrey Berg, as the independent Directors of the Fundraise, consider, having consulted with Cavendish (as the Company's Nominated Adviser), that the terms of the related party transaction are fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.

 

 

Issue of Eqity and Total Voting Rights

 

Following shareholder approval at the general meeting and conditional on admission, 36,363,636 new ordinary shares have been allotted pursuant to the Placing, 2,784,566 new ordinary shares pursuant to the Retail Offer and 727,272 pursuant to the Subscription,

 

The Company has therefore allotted a total of 39,875,474 new ordinary shares in connection with the Fundraising.

 

Following Admission, the total number of Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Company in issue will be 62,060,272 with each Ordinary Share carrying the right to one vote. There are no shares held in treasury and therefore, following Admission, the total number of voting rights in the Company will be 62,060,272.

 

The above figure may be used by Shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure, Guidance and Transparency Rules.

 

Capitalised terms used in this announcement have the meaning given to them in the Placing announcement dated 30 November 2023, unless otherwise defined in this announcement.
