 COMPANY BUSINESS (INCLUDING MAIN COUNTRY OF OPERATION) OR, 
  IN THE CASE OF AN INVESTING COMPANY, DETAILS OF ITS INVESTING 
  POLICY). IF THE ADMISSION IS SOUGHT AS A RESULT OF A REVERSE 
  TAKE-OVER UNDER RULE 14, THIS SHOULD BE STATED: 
 
              The SCISYS group of companies ("SCISYS Group") operates in 
              a broad spectrum of market sectors. It supplies bespoke software 
              systems, IT-based solutions and support services to the Media 
              & Broadcast, Space, Government, Defence and Commercial sectors. 
              Employing around 580 staff, the SCISYS Group is a leading developer 
              of information and communications technology services, e-business, 
              web and mobile applications, editorial newsroom and advanced 
              technology solutions. SCISYS clients are predominantly blue-chip 
              and public-sector organisations. Customers include the Environment 
              Agency, the Ministry of Defence, Airbus Defence & Space, Thales 
              Alenia Space, Arqiva, Vodafone, the European Space Agency, 
              Eumetsat, the BBC, Radio France, RTL, RNLI, Pets at Home, Siemens 
              and the National Trust. 
              SCISYS' main country of operation is the United Kingdom but 
              has a significant presence in Germany. 
              Given: (i) the European nature of the SCISYS Group's business 
              and operations; (ii) ongoing uncertainty concerning the future 
              relationship of the United Kingdom with the European Union; 
              (iii) the potential impact on the ability of the SCISYS Group 
              to participate in EU-funded programmes following Brexit; and 
              (iv) the SCISYS Group's ongoing desire to continue its long-standing 
              participation in European Union funded programmes, the directors 
              of SCISYS PLC have now concluded that it is in the best interests 
              of the SCISYS Group to begin formal steps to implement a restructuring 
              of the SCISYS Group. In the Directors' view, this move is expected 
              to satisfy any applicable European Union residency requirements 
              for EU-funded work without adversely affecting the SCISYS Group's 
              ability to continue contributing to space programmes funded 
              by ESA, the UK Space Agency and commercial operators. 
              To this end, SCISYS PLC proposes to put in place a new parent 
              company for the SCISYS Group, SCISYS Group PLC, being a public 
              limited company incorporated in the Republic of Ireland that 
              is intended to be tax resident in the United Kingdom. It is 
              intended that this new corporate structure will be implemented 
              by means of a Court-sanctioned scheme of arrangement under 
              the Companies Act 2006 (Scheme of Arrangement).
