THIS ANNOUNCEMENT CONTAINS INSIDE INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSES OF THE MARKET ABUSE REGULATION (EU) NO. 596/2014. UPON THE PUBLICATION OF THIS ANNOUNCEMENT, THIS INSIDE INFORMATION IS NOW CONSIDERED TO BE IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

1 November 2019

APC Technology Group PLC ("APC" or "the Company")

RECOMMED CASH OFFER

APC TECHNOLOGY GROUP PLC

by

SPECIALIST COMPONENTS LIMITED ("SPECIALIST COMPONENTS")

To be implemented by means of a Scheme of Arrangement

under Part 26 of the Companies Act 2006

Scheme of Arrangement becomes Effective

The boards of directors of APC and Specialist Components are pleased to announce, further to the announcement of 31 October 2019 that the Court had sanctioned the Scheme, that a copy of the Scheme Court Order sanctioning the Scheme was today delivered to the Registrar of Companies, and, accordingly, the Scheme has now become Effective in accordance with its terms. Therefore, the recommended cash offer by Specialist Components for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of APC has now become Effective in accordance with its terms.

Under the terms of the Scheme, the consideration of 10 pence per Ordinary Share due to Scheme Shareholders will be settled (in the case of Scheme Shares held in uncertificated form, by CREST accounts being credited) or despatched (in the case of Scheme Shares held in certificated form by cheques being despatched) as soon as practicable after today's date and in any event within the next 14 days, and therefore by no later than 15 November 2019.

Trading on AIM of, and dealings, settlements and transfers in, Ordinary Shares were suspended with effect from 7.30 a.m. (UK time) today. It is expected that cancellation of the admission to trading on AIM of, and cessation of dealings in, the Ordinary Shares will be effective from 7.00 a.m. (UK time) on 4 November 2019.

As a result of the Scheme having become Effective, share certificates in respect of the Ordinary Shares have ceased to be valid and entitlements to Ordinary Shares held within the CREST system are being cancelled.

Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalised terms and expressions used in this announcement shall have the meanings given to them in the Scheme Document relating to the Scheme dated 30 September 2019.

Further information

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY AND IS NOT INTED TO, AND DOES NOT, CONSTITUTE OR FORM ANY PART OF, AN OFFER TO SELL OR AN INVITATION TO SUBSCRIBE FOR OR PURCHASE ANY SECURITIES OR THE SOLICITATION OF ANY VOTE OR APPROVAL IN ANY JURISDICTION PURSUANT TO THE OFFER OR OTHERWISE, NOR SHALL THERE BE ANY SALE, ISSUANCE OR TRANSFER OF THE SECURITIES REFERRED TO IN THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IN ANY JURISDICTION IN CONTRAVENTION OF APPLICABLE LAW.

Overseas jurisdictions

The availability of the Offer and the release, publication and distribution of this announcement in jurisdictions other than the United Kingdom may be restricted by the laws of those jurisdictions and therefore persons who are not resident in the United Kingdom into whose possession this announcement comes should inform themselves about and observe any such restrictions. Failure to comply with any such restrictions may constitute a violation of the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. In particular, the ability of persons who are not resident in the United Kingdom to participate in the Offer may be affected by the laws of the relevant jurisdictions in which they are located.

This announcement has been prepared for the purposes of complying with the laws of England and Wales, the Code and the AIM Rules and the information disclosed may not be the same as that which would have been disclosed if this announcement had been prepared in accordance with the laws and regulations of jurisdictions outside of England and Wales.

The Scheme is governed by the laws of England and Wales. The Scheme is subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. The Offer is also subject to the applicable requirements of the Code, the Panel, the AIM Rules and the London Stock Exchange.

Unless otherwise determined by Specialist Components or required by the Code, and permitted by applicable law and regulation, the Offer is not being made available directly or indirectly, in, into or from a Restricted Jurisdiction where to do so would violate the laws in that jurisdiction and no person may vote in favour of the Offer from within a Restricted Jurisdiction or any other jurisdiction if to do so would constitute a violation of the laws of that jurisdiction. Accordingly, copies of this announcement, the Scheme Document, the notices of Court Meeting and General Meeting, the Forms of Proxy and all other documents relating to the Offer are not being, and must not be, directly or indirectly, mailed or otherwise forwarded, distributed or sent in, into or from any Restricted Jurisdiction where to do so would violate the laws in 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 any Restricted Jurisdiction where to do so would violate the laws in such jurisdictions. All persons receiving this announcement (including, without limitation, custodians, nominees and trustees) should observe these restrictions and any applicable legal or regulatory requirements of their jurisdiction and must not mail or otherwise forward, send or distribute this announcement in, into or from any Restricted Jurisdiction where to do so would violate the laws in that jurisdiction. 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.

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

Additional information for US investors

These materials are not for distribution, directly or indirectly, in or into the United States (including its territories and possessions, any State of the United States and the District of Columbia). These materials do not constitute or form a part of any offer or solicitation to purchase or subscribe for securities in the United States.

APC and Specialist Components are incorporated under the laws of England and Wales and all of the officers and directors of APC and Specialist Components are residents of countries other than the United States. Accordingly, it may not be possible to sue APC and Specialist Components or their respective directors in a non-US court for violations of US securities laws. It may also be difficult to compel APC, Specialist Components and their respective affiliates to subject themselves to the jurisdiction and judgment of a US court.

The Offer, being implemented by way of the Scheme, is being made to acquire the entire issued and to be issued share capital of a company incorporated in England and Wales by way of a scheme of arrangement provided for under Part 26 of the Companies Act 2006. A transaction effected by way of a scheme of arrangement is not subject to the proxy solicitation or tender offer rules under the US Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Accordingly, the Scheme is subject to the disclosure requirements, rules and practices applicable in the United Kingdom to schemes of arrangement and takeover offers, which differ from the disclosure requirements, style and format of US tender offer and proxy solicitation rules. If Specialist Components determines to extend the offer into the US, the Offer will be made in compliance with applicable US laws and regulations. Financial information included in the Scheme Document has been prepared in accordance with non-US accounting standards that may not be comparable to financial information of US companies or companies whose financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the US.

Neither the US Securities and Exchange Commission nor any securities commission of any state of the United States has approved or disapproved the Offer, nor have such authorities passed upon or determined the fairness of the Offer or the adequacy or accuracy of the information contained in this announcement. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offence in the United States.

If the Offer is required to be made in the US, it will be done in compliance with the applicable tender offer rules under the US Exchange Act.
