* Special Resolutions

1.      The number of votes validly cast were in respect of 253,602,636 shares, representing 53.99% of the 469,737,487 issued share capital of the Company, being the total number of shares in issue with voting rights at 6.00pm on 4 August 2020.

2.      Percentages are rounded to two decimal places.

 

The new ordinary shares and non-voting right ordinary shares required to be issued pursuant to the Fundraise, Capitalisation and Deferred Consideration Settlement have therefore now been issued subject only to Admission taking place, and this is expected to occur at 8.00am tomorrow morning.

 

Following Admission, the Company's issued share capital will comprise of  2,382,216,431 shares, of which 1,430,751,958 are voting shares and 951,365,095 are non-voting shares and 99,378 are held in treasury. Accordingly, the above figure of 1,430,751,958 Ordinary Shares may be used by shareholders of 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 voting share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

 

All defined and capitalised terms have the same meaning as the Company's announcement on 14 July 2020.

 

Paul Dolan, Chairman and CEO, commented:

 

"We are delighted that shareholders have so resoundingly supported the transformative Fundraise and Debt Restructuring. The table below shows that we have today moved to a cash balance of $6.8 million after settling all of our high cost ITF funding and over 96% of the interest bearing convertible debt.  We have removed 85% of our total debt from our balance sheet with major benefits to cash flows and outlook. I am confident that we will now be able to implement our stated plans, become cash flow positive and be able to commence paying a sustainable dividend following the conclusion of the 2021 financial year."
