RESULTS OF COURT MEETING AND SCHEME GENERAL MEETING

19 November 2018

The Board of SCISYS PLC ("Old SCISYS") is pleased to announce that at the Court Meeting held earlier today, Scheme Shareholders voted by the requisite majorities to approve the Scheme to implement the proposals to establish SCISYS Group plc ("New SCISYS") as the holding company of the SCISYS Group by means of the Scheme. In addition, the special resolutions to facilitate the Scheme, proposed at the subsequent Scheme General Meeting, were duly passed.

Details of the resolutions passed are set out in the notices of the Court Meeting and the Scheme General Meeting contained in the scheme document dated 26 October 2018 sent or otherwise made available to Old SCISYS Shareholders (the "Scheme Document"), which document, subject to certain restrictions relating to persons resident in Restricted Jurisdictions, is available on SCISYS's website at www.scisys.co.uk/who-we-are/investors/SOA.html.

Upon the Scheme becoming effective, Scheme Shareholders will receive one New SCISYS Share for each Old SCISYS Share which they hold at the Scheme Record Time.

Effective Date and Timetable

The hearing of the petition to the Court to sanction the Scheme is expected to take place on 27 November 2018.

Subject to the Court sanctioning the Scheme and the satisfaction or waiver of certain other outstanding conditions, it is expected that the last day for dealings in Old SCISYS Shares will be 26 November 2018 and that the Scheme will become effective on 27 November 2018.

Unless otherwise stated, all references to time in this Announcement are to London time. The dates in this Announcement are indicative only. These dates depend, amongst other things, on the date upon which the Court sanctions the Scheme, the date on which the Court Order is delivered to the Registrar of Companies and whether the conditions are satisfied or, if capable of waiver, waived. Old SCISYS will give notice of these dates, when known, by posting notice on its website (www.scisys.co.uk/who-we-are/investors/SOA.html.).
