("Frontier" or the "Company")

Result of Placing

Frontier IP Group plc (AIM: FIPP), a specialist in commercialising university intellectual property, is pleased to confirm, further to the announcement made earlier today, that it has raised net proceeds of approximately £3.8 million through a Placing of 8,000,000 Placing Shares with certain existing and new institutional investors at a Placing Price of 50 pence per share. The Placing has now closed. The Placing Price represents a 9.9 per cent. discount to the Closing Price of 55.5 pence on 5 November 2019, the Business Day before the announcement of the Placing. N+1 Singer acted as sole bookrunner in connection with the Placing.

The Placing Shares will, when issued, be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends or other distributions made, paid or declared in respect of such shares after the date of issue of the new Placing Shares.

Annual General Meeting

In accordance with the Company's articles of association, shareholder approval is required for the Directors to issue the Placing Shares. The Annual General Meeting will be held for the purpose of, inter alia, passing the Placing Resolutions to authorise the proposed Placing. The Company will publish a Circular, which contains a notice of AGM, to convene the AGM to propose the Placing Resolutions to enable completion of the Placing. The AGM will be held at 93 George Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3ES at 11.00 a.m. on 4 December 2019. The Circular containing the notice of AGM is expected to be published and sent to shareholders tomorrow and will be available shortly thereafter on the Company's website, www.frontierip.co.uk.

Neil Crabb, CEO of Frontier IP, commented

"The success of this oversubscribed placing is a reflection of the continued progress of Frontier IP and our portfolio companies over the past year - as demonstrated by our excellent full-year results. The strength of our business model and the greater traction we are gaining with industry and academic partners is reflected in the support we have received from existing and new investors. We are now in a strong financial position and well placed to withstand any future market volatility."

Participation by Substantial Shareholders and Directors in the Placing

Certain of the Company's substantial shareholders and Directors have agreed to subscribe for Placing Shares at the Placing Price.

2,000,000 Placing Shares have been conditionally subscribed for by Canaccord Genuity Group Inc. ("Canaccord") and 873,076 Placing Shares have been conditionally subscribed for by Quilter Cheviot Limited ("Quilter"). The number of Placing Shares subscribed for by each of the substantial shareholders and Directors pursuant to the Placing, and their resulting shareholdings on Admission, as far as the Company is aware in respect of the substantial shareholders, are set out below:

Related Party Transactions

The participations by Canaccord, Quilter, Neil Crabb and Mike Bourne in the Placing are deemed to be related party transactions pursuant to rule 13 of the AIM Rules for Companies. Accordingly, the directors of the Company (excluding Neil Crabb and Mike Bourne) consider, having consulted with the Company's nominated adviser, Allenby Capital, that the terms of these transactions are fair and reasonable insofar as Shareholders are concerned.

Admission and dealings

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the 8,000,000 Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that, conditional on the requisite shareholder approvals being obtained at the AGM, Admission will occur and dealings will commence in on 5 December 2019 at 8.00 a.m. (or such later date as N+1 Singer and the Company may agree, being not later than 8.00 a.m. on 12 December 2019). The Placing is conditional upon, amongst other things, Admission becoming effective. The Placing is also conditional on the placing agreement between the Company and N+1 Singer not being terminated in accordance with its terms prior to Admission.

Total Voting Rights

Following Admission, the Company will have 50,431,372 Ordinary Shares in issue. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of ordinary shares and voting rights in the Company will be 50,431,372. With effect from Admission, 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 Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Notice to distributors

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within: (a) EU Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments, as amended ("MiFID II"); (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing MiFID II; and (c) local implementing measures (together, the "MiFID II Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the MiFID II Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Placing Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that such securities are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail investors and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in MiFID II; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all distribution channels as are permitted by MiFID II (the "Target Market Assessment").

Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, distributors should note that: the price of the Placing Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; Placing Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Placing Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of MiFID II; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to Placing Shares. Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the Placing Shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.
