Accordingly, pursuant to the Company’s announcement on 5 November 2018, the Company is issuing 22,222,222 new Ordinary Shares. Application has been made for admission of the Placing Shares to trading on AIM which is expected to become effective, and dealings are expected to commence, at 8.00 a.m. on Thursday, 22 November 2018, following which the Company will have 403,944,208 Ordinary Shares in issue with voting rights.
