THIS ANNOUNCEMENT CONTAINS INSIDE INFORMATION FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

16 August 2019

LightwaveRF plc

("LightwaveRF" or the "Company")

Result of placing

LightwaveRF (AIM: LWRF), the leading smart homes solutions provider, announces that, following the announcement released earlier today ("Announcement"), it has successfully placed an aggregate of 18,571,428 new Ordinary Shares at a price of 7 pence per share (the "Issue Price") raising gross proceeds of approximately GBP1.3 million.

A total of 10,000,000 new Ordinary Shares have been placed with existing and new investors under the Firm Placing at the Issue Price, thereby raising approximately GBP0.7 million. No new Ordinary Shares have been placed under the Conditional Placing.

The Announcement confirmed that a total of 5,806,811 new Ordinary Shares would be issued under the Firm Subscription at the Issue Price, thereby raising approximately GBP0.4 million, and a further 2,764,617 new Ordinary Shares would also be issued under the Conditional Subscription at the Issue Price, thereby raising a further approximately GBP0.2 million.

The Conditional Subscription is conditional upon the passing of certain Resolutions. Following completion of the Conditional Subscription, the Concert Party's interest in the Company will increase from 36.74 per cent. to 38.16 per cent. which would require it to make an offer under Rule 9 of the Takeover Code. The Company has, however, applied to the Panel for a waiver of Rule 9 of the Takeover Code in order to permit the Conditional Subscription by the Concert Party without triggering an obligation on the part of any member of the Concert Party (individually or collectively) to make a general offer for the Company. Accordingly, a circular is expected to be posted in due course to convene a general meeting to approve the Resolutions.

The Firm Placing was conducted by way of an accelerated bookbuild process. Shore Capital Stockbrokers Limited ("Shore Capital") acted as sole broker on the Firm Placing.

The Issue Price represents a discount of approximately 11.2 per cent. to the Closing Price of 7.88 pence on 15 August 2019, being the last business day prior to the Announcement.

Application has been made for admission of the Firm Placing Shares and the Firm Subscription Shares to trading on AIM and dealings in the Firm Placing Shares and the Firm Subscription Shares are expected to commence at 8.00 a.m. on 20 August 2019. The Firm Placing Shares and the Firm Subscription Shares, when issued, will rank pari passu with the Existing Ordinary Shares.

On First Admission, the Company will have 120,818,829 Ordinary Shares in issue and admitted to trading on AIM. This figure may be used by Shareholders 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 Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Application will be made for admission of the Conditional Subscription Shares to trading on AIM and dealings in the Conditional Subscription Shares (other than the Deferred Settlement Shares, details of which are set out below) is expected to occur at 8.00 a.m. on the next business day following the General Meeting (or such later date, being not later than 8.00 a.m. on 31 October 2019, as the Company and Shore Capital may agree).

The Company has agreed that settlement be deferred in respect of 1,428,571 new Ordinary Shares, forming part of the Conditional Subscription. As a result, the Deferred Settlement Shares will be allotted no later than 30 October 2019 and dealings in these shares are expected to commence no later than 8.00 a.m. on 31 October 2019.
