Results of Court Meeting and General Meeting

On 31 March 2022, the Boards of InnovaDerma and Brand Architekts announced that they had reached agreement on the terms of a recommended cash and share offer pursuant to which Brand Architekts will acquire the entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of InnovaDerma (the "Merger") (Brand Architekts and InnovaDerma together, the "Combined Group"). The Merger is to be effected by means of a Court-sanctioned scheme of arrangement (the "Scheme") between InnovaDerma and the Scheme Shareholders under Part 26 of the Companies Act 2006. The InnovaDerma Board is pleased to announce that, at the Court Meeting and General Meeting which were held earlier today, the shareholders of InnovaDerma approved by the requisite majorities all of the resolutions proposed at the Court Meeting and the General Meeting in respect of the Merger.

A scheme document containing, amongst other things, notices convening the Court Meeting and the General Meeting (including details of the resolutions passed at such meetings), the full terms and conditions of the Scheme, a letter from the Chairman of InnovaDerma and an explanatory statement from finnCap Ltd was posted to InnovaDerma Shareholders on 25 April 2022 (the "Scheme Document").

The number of InnovaDerma Shares in issue at 6.00 p.m. on 17 May 2022, being the Scheme Voting Record Time, was 28,057,825.

Unless otherwise defined, all capitalised terms in this announcement (the "Announcement") shall have the same meaning given to them in the Scheme Document.

Disclosure requirements of the Takeover Code

Under Rule 8.3(a) of the Takeover Code, any person who is interested in 1 per cent. or more of any class of relevant securities of an offeree company or of any securities exchange offeror (being any offeror other than an offeror in respect of which it has been announced that its offer is, or is likely to be, solely in cash) must make an Opening Position Disclosure following the commencement of the Offer Period and, if later, following the Announcement in which any securities exchange offeror is first identified. An Opening Position Disclosure must contain details of the person's interests and short positions in, and rights to subscribe for, any relevant securities of each of: (i) the offeree company; and (ii) any securities exchange offeror(s). An Opening Position Disclosure by a person to whom Rule 8.3(a) of the Takeover Code applies must be made by no later than 3.30 pm on the 10th Business Day following the commencement of the Offer Period and, if appropriate, by no later than 3.30 pm on the 10th Business Day following the announcement in which any securities exchange offeror is first identified. Relevant persons who deal in the relevant securities of the offeree company or of a securities exchange offeror prior to the deadline for making an Opening Position Disclosure must instead make a Dealing Disclosure.

Under Rule 8.3(b) of the Takeover Code, any person who is, or becomes, interested in 1 per cent. or more of any class of relevant securities of the offeree company or of any securities exchange offeror must make a Dealing Disclosure if the person deals in any relevant securities of the offeree company or of any securities exchange offeror. A Dealing Disclosure must contain details of the dealing concerned and of the person's interests and short positions in, and rights to subscribe for, any relevant securities of each of: (i) the offeree company; and (ii) any securities exchange offeror, save to the extent that these details have previously been disclosed under Rule 8 of the Takeover Code. A Dealing Disclosure by a person to whom Rule 8.3(b) of the Takeover Code applies must be made by no later than 3.30 pm on the Business Day following the date of the relevant dealing.

If two or more persons act together pursuant to an agreement or understanding, whether formal or informal, to acquire or control an interest in relevant securities of an offeree company or a securities exchange offeror, they will be deemed to be a single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3 of the Takeover Code.

Opening Position Disclosures must also be made by the offeree company and by any offeror and Dealing Disclosures must also be made by the offeree company, by any offeror and by any persons acting in concert with either of them (see Rules 8.1, 8.2 and 8.4 of the Takeover Code).

Details of the offeree and offeror companies in respect of whose relevant securities Opening Position Disclosures and Dealing Disclosures must be made can be found in the Disclosure Table on the Panel's website at www.thetakeoverpanel.org.uk, including details of the number of relevant securities in issue, when the Offer Period commenced and when any offeror was first identified. You should contact the Panel's Market Surveillance Unit on +44 (0)20 7638 0129 if you are in any doubt as to whether you are required to make an Opening Position Disclosure or a Dealing Disclosure.
