COURT SANCTION OF THE SCHEME

27 November 2018

On 17 October 2018, the Board of Directors of SCISYS PLC ("Old SCISYS") announced the proposed restructuring of the SCISYS Group to create a new holding company ("New SCISYS"), a public limited company incorporated in Ireland and listed on AIM and ESM (the "Reorganisation"), to be implemented by way of a Court sanctioned scheme of arrangement under Part 26 of the Companies Act 2006 (the "Scheme"). A scheme document addressed to Old SCISYS Shareholders (the "Scheme Document"), containing further information on the Reorganisation and the Scheme, was published on 26 October 2018. The Scheme and its implementation was approved by Old SCISYS Shareholders on 19 November 2018.

Old SCISYS is pleased to announce that the Court has today made an order to sanction the Scheme to give effect to the Reorganisation. The Scheme will become effective on delivery of an office copy of the Court Order to the Registrar of Companies, which is expected to take place later today, 27 November 2018, whereupon the entire issued ordinary share capital of Old SCISYS will be owned by New SCISYS.

The cancellation of admission to trading of Old SCISYS Shares on AIM will take effect at 7.30 a.m. on 28 November 2018.

Application has been made for the admission to trading on AIM and ESM for the 29,584,660 ordinary shares of 25p each in the capital of New SCISYS pursuant to the Reorganisation and it is expected that trading will commence on AIM and ESM at 8.00 a.m. on 28 November 2018.
