Nanoco Group plc (LON:NANO), a world leader in the development and manufacture of cadmium-free quantum dots and other specific nanomaterials emanating from its technology platform, is pleased to announce an offer for subscription via PrimaryBid (the "PrimaryBid Offer") of new ordinary shares of 10p each in the Company ("New Ordinary Shares") at an issue price of 17.5 pence per New Ordinary Share (the "Issue Price"), being a discount of 2.8% per cent to the closing mid-price on 15 July 2020 as announced earlier on 15 July 2020 .

The PrimaryBid Offer is conditional on the new Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the PrimaryBid Offer being admitted to listing on the Official List by the Financial Conduct Authority and to trading by the London Stock Exchange on its main market for listed securities ("Admission"). Admission is expected to be take place at 8.00 a.m. on 20 July 2020.

The net proceeds of the Fundraising will be used to extend the Company's cash runway at least to the end of calendar year 2021 while supporting its core IP assets and its business operations during the ongoing lawsuit against Samsung.

The Company's largest shareholder, Lombard Odier, has undertaken to subscribe for £2.14m of New Ordinary Shares on the same terms as those set out above, which subscription shall be subject to claw back depending on the amount of the other aggregate applications received from other investors under the PrimaryBid Offer.  Lombard Odier will receive, conditional upon Admission (as defined below), a subscription commission equal to 3.0 per cent of the amount it subscribes . In the event that Admission does not occur, Lombard Odier will not receive any commission payment. .

Certain directors of the Company and/or persons closely associated with them have given written undertakings to the Company to subscribe for PrimaryBid Shares at the Issue Price with a total value of £61,000.

PrimaryBid Offer

The Company values its retail investor base and is therefore pleased to provide private and other investors the opportunity to participate in the PrimaryBid Offer by applying exclusively through the www.PrimaryBid.com platform and the PrimaryBid mobile app available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. PrimaryBid does not charge investors any commission for this service.

The PrimaryBid Offer, via the PrimaryBid.com platform, will be open to individual and institutional investors immediately following this announcement and will close at 9:00 p.m. on 15 July 2020.  The PrimaryBid Offer may close early if it is oversubscribed.

Further Details of the Offer

The Company highly values its retail investor base which has supported the Company alongside institutional investors over several years. Given the longstanding support of retail shareholders, the Company believes that it is appropriate to provide retail and other interested investors the opportunity to participate in the Offer. The Company is therefore making the Offer available exclusively through PrimaryBid.com.

The Offer is offered under the exemptions against the need for a prospectus allowed under the Prospectus Rules. As such, there is no need for publication of a prospectus pursuant to the Prospectus Rules, or for approval of the same by the Financial Conduct Authority in its capacity as the UK Listing Authority. The Offer is not being made into any Restricted Jurisdiction or any other jurisdiction where it would be unlawful to do so.

There is a minimum subscription of £100 per investor under the terms of the Offer which is open to existing shareholders and other investors subscribing via PrimaryBid.com. This allocation will be filled on a "first come first served" basis.

For further details please refer to the PrimaryBid.com website at www.PrimaryBid.com. The terms and conditions on which the Offer is made, including the procedure for application and payment for New Ordinary Shares, is available to all persons who register with PrimaryBid.com.

Investors should make their own investigations into the merits of an investment in the Company. Nothing in this announcement amounts to a recommendation to invest in the Company or amounts to investment, taxation or legal advice.

It should be noted that a subscription for New Ordinary Shares and investment in the Company carries a number of risks. Investors should consider the risk factors set out on PrimaryBid.com before making a decision to subscribe for New Ordinary Shares. Investors should take independent advice from a person experienced in advising on investment in securities such as the New Ordinary Shares if they are in any doubt.
