The Huyton Asphalt SSAS Pension Fund, of which Ian McDonough, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, is both a trustee and a beneficiary, purchased the 833,333 Subscription Shares detailed above.

Admission to trading and total voting rights

Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange plc for the Subscription Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings in the Subscription Shares on AIM will commence at 8:00 a.m. on or around 11 March 2024.

On Admission, the Company's issued ordinary share capital will consist of 387,077,188 ordinary shares of 0.8 pence each in the Company (the "Ordinary Shares"), with one vote per share. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury. Therefore, on Admission, the total number of Ordinary Shares and voting rights in the Company will be 387,077,188. With effect from Admission, this figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Director's interest in the Company

Following Admission, Stephen Streater, the Company's R&D Director, will be interested in 62,785,000 Ordinary Shares which is equivalent to 16.22% of the enlarged share capital (as enlarged by the Subscription Shares).
