Block Admission

The Company announces that an application has been made for a block admission to trading on AIM in respect of 500,000 ordinary shares of 1p each ("New Ordinary Shares") in the share capital of the Company (the "Block Admission"). It is expected that such admission will become effective on 13 August 2020.

The New Ordinary Shares will be issued from time to time pursuant to exercises of options under the Company's Long Term Incentive Plan employee share scheme (the "Incentive Scheme").

When issued, the New Ordinary Shares will be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares of the Company.

The Block Admission is considered adequate for anticipated exercises of options under the Incentive Scheme for the foreseeable future.

The Company's issued share capital will not change as a result of the Block Admission.
