Update on possible offer for Audioboom Group plc

Letters of Intent received to accept the proposed offer

Revised completion date for acquisition of Sentiance

On 19 July 2021 All Active Asset Capital Limited ('AAA') announced a possible offer for the whole of the issued and to be issued share capital of Audioboom Group plc ('Audioboom'), stating that any offer, were it to be made, would consist of 12.5 new AAA shares and 200p in cash per Audioboom Share (the 'Offer'). The Offer, if made, is expected to be implemented as a Scheme of Arrangement under Article 125 of the Companies (Jersey) Law 1991 (as amended) ("Scheme") or by way of a contractual offer to acquire Audioboom shares. The announcement on 19 July 2021 also contains further information about the possible offer and the circumstances in which AAA reserved the right to make an offer on less favourable terms than those set out above, is available online at: https://aaacap.com/investor-relations/possible-offer-audioboom-group/ .

Letters of Intent

As disclosed in the announcement of 19 July 2021, AAA has already received irrevocable undertakings to vote in favour of the Scheme (or accept an offer if the possible acquisition is structured as a contractual offer) in respect of 4,147,602 Audioboom shares representing 26.43% of Audioboom's issued share capital. In addition to this, AAA announces that it has solicited additional support for the possible offer and has received Letters of Intent to vote in favour of the Scheme (or accept an offer if the possible acquisition is structured as a contractual offer) from the Audioboom shareholders listed in Appendix 1 in respect of a further 3,843,092 Audioboom shares, representing 24.49% of Audioboom's issued share capital.

Each Letter of Intent comprises a statement of intention to vote in favour of the Scheme (or accept an offer if the possible acquisition is structured as a contractual offer) on the terms set out in the announcement of 19 July 2021 and are not a legally binding commitment to vote for in favour of the Scheme or accept an offer. However, if any signatories' intentions change, they are obliged by Rule 2.10(c) of the Takeover Code to make an announcement and notify AAA and the Takeover Panel.

Therefore, in aggregate, holders of 50.92% of Audioboom's issued share capital have undertaken, or stated their intention, to vote for the Scheme if an Offer is made on the terms described above. The Board of AAA believes this represents a strong mandate for the Board of Audioboom to continue to explore the possible Offer.

On 16 August 2021, the Board of Audioboom requested, and the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers (the 'Panel') consented, to an extension to the deadline by which AAA must either announce a firm intention to make an offer for Audioboom in accordance with Rule 2.7 of the Code or announce that it does not intend to make an offer. The revised deadline, which will be further extended only with the consent of the Takeover Panel in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the Code, expires at 5.00 p.m. UK time on 13 September 2021.

Revised completion date for acquisition of Sentiance

As set out in the announcement of 19 July 2021, the Offer is subject a number of pre-conditions including a non-waivable pre-condition regarding completion of the acquisition of at least 75% of the entire share capital of Sentiance B.V.. Due to logistical reasons, the acquisition has not yet completed and the deadline for completion has been extended to 30 September 2021. Since the current 'put up or shut up' deadline will expire prior to this date, the Board of AAA has approached the Board of Audioboom to request a further extension of the deadline. The Board of AAA remains committed to seeking a recommended proposal which addresses the concerns of the Independent Directors of Audioboom as to the value and liquidity of AAA's equity post any acquisition.

There can be no certainty that any Offer will be made.
