("21st Century" or "the Group")

Result of GM


21st Century Technology plc (AIM: C21), to be renamed "Journeo plc" (AIM: JNEO) the specialist provider of integrated IoT systems and software to the passenger transport markets, announces that at its General Meeting held earlier today all the resolutions proposed, details of which were set out in a Circular to shareholders dated 13 November 2019, were duly passed. Results of the proxy voting will be available on the Company's website in due course.

All capitalised terms in this announcement are as defined in the Circular which in addition to the Notice of GM and other relevant documents was sent to shareholders on 13 November 2019 and is available on the Company's website, www.21stplc.com.

Share Reorganisation and New Ordinary Shares

Immediately following the GM, 245 Existing Ordinary Shares were issued at a price of 6.5 pence per share to ensure that as part of the Share Reorganisation an exact whole number of New Consolidate Shares will be issued. At the Share Reorganisation Record Date, the 93,240,000 Existing Ordinary Shares will be consolidated into New Consolidated Ordinary Shares each on the basis of one New Consolidated Ordinary Share for each 4,000 Existing Ordinary Shares. Each New Consolidated Ordinary Share will then be sub-divided into 250 New Ordinary Shares and 3,750 Deferred Shares. Immediately following the Share Reorganisation, the Company's issued share capital will comprise 5,827,500 Ordinary Shares of 6.5p each and 87,412,500 Deferred Shares of 6.5p each.

The closing mid-market price of an Existing Ordinary Share on 29 November was 4.25 pence which, had the Share Reorganisation occurred at that time, would be equivalent to a price of 68 pence per New Ordinary Share.

Application has been made for the 5,827,500 New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. Dealings are expected to commence on 3 December 2019 at 8 a.m. The New Ordinary Shares will trade under the ISIN: GB00BKP51V79 and SEDOL: BKP51V7.

Existing share certificates will cease to be valid following the Share Reorganisation. New share certificates in respect of the New Ordinary Shares are expected to be issued on or around 10 December 2019. A CREST Shareholder will have their CREST account credited with their New Ordinary Shares following Admission on 3 December 2019.

In accordance with the provisions of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority, the Company confirms that, following the Share Reorganisation, its issued share capital will comprise 5,827,500 new ordinary shares of 6.5p each ("Ordinary Share") and 87,412,500 deferred shares of 6.5p each. All of the Ordinary Shares have equal voting rights and none of the Ordinary Shares are held in Treasury. The total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 5,827,500. This 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 Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

Change of Name and Website Address

Shareholders have approved the change of Company name to:

Journeo plc

The change of name will be effective once Companies House has issued a certificate of incorporation on change of name. This is expected to occur on or around 2 December 2019.  The tradable instrument display mnemonic ("TIDM") of the Company is expected to change to JNEO with effect from 7 a.m. on 3 December 2019.
