RECOMMED CASH OFFER

for

FIREANGEL SAFETY TECHNOLOGY GROUP PLC

by

INTELLIGENT SAFETY ELECTRONICS PTE. LTD

UPDATE ON NSIA CONDITION

Further to the announcement made on 8 December 2023 regarding the suspension of the Offer timetable in light of the NSIA Condition (as such term is defined below) remaining outstanding, t he Secretary of State has today written to ISE and FireAngel to inform them that it has considered the notification made by ISE under the National Security and Investment Act 2021 (the "Act") in relation to the Offer and has chosen to issue a call-in notice.

In accordance with section 23 of the Act, the Secretary of State has 30 working days to carry out its assessment; if it is not possible to complete the assessment within this time, the Secretary of State may extend the assessment period by a further 45 working days. These timelines are subject to extension where an "Information Notice" or "Attendance Notice" is issued by the Secretary of State. Any extensions beyond this point would be by agreement with ISE.

As set out at paragraph 2.1 of Section A of Part 3 of the Offer Document, the Offer is conditional upon, among other things, satisfaction of the condition relating to a material official authorisation or regulatory clearance, in this instance being the National Security and Investment Act 2021 ("NSIA Condition").

As such, the offer timetable remains suspended and, in accordance with Rule 31.4(b) of the Code, will resume on the date on which the last condition relating to a relevant official authorisation or regulatory clearance is satisfied or waived, which date will then become the 28 (th) day prior to Day 60 of the revised offer timetable.

In accordance with Rule 31.4(d) of the Code, when the offer timetable resumes in accordance with Rule 31.4(b), ISE will make an announcement confirming the new Day 60.

The requirement for ISE to make announcements of acceptance levels under Rule 17.1(a)(i) of the Code continues not to apply for the duration of the suspension of the offer timetable and will recommence when the offer timetable resumes.

Capitalised terms in this announcement, unless otherwise defined, have the same meanings as set out in the Offer Document issued by ISE on 2 November 2023 relating to the recommended cash offer for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of FireAngel, other than the FireAngel Shares already owned or controlled by ISE. All references to times in this announcement are to London times, unless otherwise stated.

Overseas Shareholders

The Offer relates to securities in a company which is registered in England and Wales, which is admitted to trading on AIM and is subject to the disclosure requirements, rules and practices applicable to such companies, which differ from those of Restricted Jurisdictions in certain material respects.

The release, publication or distribution of this Announcement in or into certain jurisdictions other than the United Kingdom may be restricted by law and therefore any persons who are subject to the laws of any jurisdiction other than the United Kingdom should inform themselves about, and observe, any applicable requirements.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the companies and persons involved in the Offer disclaim any responsibility or liability for the violation of such restrictions by any person.

Copies of this Announcement and formal documentation relating to the Offer shall not be, and must not be, mailed or otherwise forwarded, distributed or sent in, into or from the United States or any other Restricted Jurisdiction or any jurisdiction where to do so would violate the laws of that jurisdiction and persons receiving such documents (including custodians, nominees and trustees) must not mail or otherwise forward, distribute or send them in, into or from the United States or any other Restricted Jurisdiction. Doing so may render invalid any related purported acceptance of the Offer.

Further details in relation to Overseas Shareholders are contained in the Offer Document.

Forward Looking Statements

This Announcement (including information incorporated by reference in this Announcement), oral statements made regarding the Offer, and other information published by FireAngel, ISE or any member of the Wider ISE Group contain statements which are, or may be deemed to be, "forward looking statements". Such forward looking statements are prospective in nature and are not based on historical facts, but rather on current expectations and on numerous assumptions regarding the business strategies and the environment in which ISE and any member of the Wider ISE Group operates now and in the future and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by those statements. The forward-looking statements contained in this Announcement relate to ISE, any member of the Wider ISE Group's future prospects, developments and business strategies, the expected timing and scope of the Offer and other statements other than historical facts. In some cases, these forward looking statements can be identified by the use of forward looking terminology, including the terms "believes", "estimates", "will look to", "would look to", "plans", "prepares", "anticipates", "expects", "is expected to", "is subject to", "intends", "may", "will", "shall" or "should" or their negatives or other variations or comparable terminology. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that shall occur in the future. These events and circumstances include changes in the global, political, economic, business, competitive, market and regulatory forces, future exchange and interest rates, changes in tax rates and future business combinations or disposals. If any one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialises or if any one or more of the assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may differ materially from those expected, estimated or projected. Such forward looking statements should therefore be construed in the light of such factors.

Neither ISE or any member of the Wider ISE Group, nor any of their respective associates or directors, officers or advisers, provides any representation, assurance or guarantee that the occurrence of the events expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements in this Announcement shall actually occur. Given these risks and uncertainties, potential investors should not place any reliance on forward looking statements. The forward looking statements speak only at the date of this Announcement. All subsequent oral or written forward looking statements attributable to any member of the Wider ISE Group, or any of their respective associates, directors, officers, employees or advisers, are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statement above.

ISE and the Wider ISE Group expressly disclaim any obligation to update such statements other than as required by law or by the rules of any competent regulatory authority, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Disclosure requirements of the Code

Under Rule 8.3(a) of the Code, any person who is interested in 1% or more of any class of relevant securities of an offeree company or of any securities exchange offeror (being any offeror other than an offeror in respect of which it has been announced that its offer is, or is likely to be, solely in cash) must make an Opening Position Disclosure following the commencement of the offer period and, if later, following the announcement in which any securities exchange offeror is first identified. An Opening Position Disclosure must contain details of the person's interests and short positions in, and rights to subscribe for, any relevant securities of each of (i) the offeree company and (ii) any securities exchange offeror(s). An Opening Position Disclosure by a person to whom Rule 8.3(a) applies must be made by no later than 3.30 p.m. on the 10th business day following the commencement of the offer period and, if appropriate, by no later than 3.30 p.m. on the 10th business day following the announcement in which any securities exchange offeror is first identified. Relevant persons who deal in the relevant securities of the offeree company or of a securities exchange offeror prior to the deadline for making an Opening Position Disclosure must instead make a Dealing Disclosure.

Under Rule 8.3(b) of the Code, any person who is, or becomes, interested in 1% or more of any class of relevant securities of the offeree company or of any securities exchange offeror must make a Dealing Disclosure if the person deals in any relevant securities of the offeree company or of any securities exchange offeror. A Dealing Disclosure must contain details of the dealing concerned and of the person's interests and short positions in, and rights to subscribe for, any relevant securities of each of (i) the offeree company and (ii) any securities exchange offeror(s), save to the extent that these details have previously been disclosed under Rule 8. A Dealing Disclosure by a person to whom Rule 8.3(b) applies must be made by no later than 3.30 p.m. on the business day following the date of the relevant dealing.

If two or more persons act together pursuant to an agreement or understanding, whether formal or informal, to acquire or control an interest in relevant securities of an offeree company or a securities exchange offeror, they will be deemed to be a single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3.

Opening Position Disclosures must also be made by the offeree company and by any offeror and Dealing Disclosures must also be made by the offeree company, by any offeror and by any persons acting in concert with any of them (see Rules 8.1, 8.2 and 8.4).

Details of the offeree and offeror companies in respect of whose relevant securities Opening Position Disclosures and Dealing Disclosures must be made can be found in the Disclosure Table on the Panel's website at http://www.thetakeoverpanel.org.uk, including details of the number of relevant securities in issue, when the offer period commenced and when any offeror was first identified. You should contact the Panel's Market Surveillance Unit on +44 (0)20 7638 0129 if you are in any doubt as to whether you are required to make an Opening Position Disclosure or a Dealing Disclosure.
