LCM Loan Share Plan ("LSP")

The Company has in place a LSP. Ordinary Shares issued to recipients under the LSP ("LSP Shares") generally rank equally with all existing shares from the date of issue.

The LSP Shares are issued to the recipient at market value and due to the vesting conditions attached to them (e.g. continuous employment conditions and share price hurdles) represent a share based payment arrangement.

The LSP awards, unless stated otherwise, will vest over a three year period in four equal tranches from the date of issue. In addition, the LSP awards are subject to malus and clawback provisions. The awards vests in full in the event of a change of control at any time.

Application will be made for the 616,520 ordinary shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that admission will take place on 23 October 2020. Following the allotment and issue, the Company's issued share capital consists of 115,654,666 ordinary shares. The Company does not hold any shares in Treasury, as such the total number of shares in issue with voting rights is 115,654,666.

The above figure of 115,654,666 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.
