The Placing has been undertaken by the Company's Joint Broker Peterhouse Capital Limited.
The net proceeds of the Placing will provide the Company additional working capital and will also enable the Company's board to initiate a further cost reduction programme and to evaluate new business opportunities. The Placing will also strengthen the Company's balance sheet.

Application will be made for the Placing Shares, which will rank pari passu with the Company's existing Ordinary Shares, to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). The Placing is conditional on Admission and it is anticipated that Admission will become effective at 8.00 a.m. on 19 December 2018.
Total voting rights
Following Admission, the Company's enlarged issued share capital will comprise 1,262,221,134 Ordinary Shares. The Company does not hold any shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of Ordinary Shares with voting rights will be 1,262,221,134. 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.
