Use of proceeds

The Company will use the additional proceeds of the Placing to fund investment in key activities and to further develop and progress with the commercialisation of its portfolio of IP technologies, to strengthen its balance sheet and for working capital requirements.

Details of the Placing

SP Angel is acting as the Company's nominated adviser and joint broker with Novum Securities Limited in connection with the Placing.

The Placing is subject to certain Terms and Conditions. The Placing is not underwritten.

The Placing comprises 14,800,000 New Ordinary Shares. The New Ordinary Shares have been placed at the Placing Price with new investors. The Placing as a whole will raise proceeds of GBP740,00 (approx. $962,000), before expenses, for the Company. The New Ordinary Shares will represent approximately 18.8 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital.

The New Ordinary Shares will be in registered form and capable of being held in certificated form or uncertificated form in CREST. The Placing is conditional upon the Placing Agreement becoming unconditional and Admission by no later than 8.00 a.m. on 07 February 2020 (or such time and date as the Company, SP Angel and Novum may agree, being not later than 28 February 2020).
