Five for one sub-division of ordinary shares
Please note that the number of shares held by each investor has increased five fold and the share price has reduced to one fifth of its prior amount, resulting in no change to the aggregate value of any holding.
Shareholders approved an ordinary resolution at the Annual General Meeting held on 23 January 2019 that each of the ordinary shares of 5p each in the capital of the Company be subdivided into five ordinary shares of 1p each (the ‘New Ordinary Shares’), the New Ordinary Shares having the rights and being subject to the restrictions set out in the Articles of Association of the Company. The New Ordinary Shares were admitted to the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange’s market for listed securities from 8.00am on 28 January 2019. Accordingly the 57,389,739 ordinary shares of 5p in issue as at 23 January 2019 have been sub-divided into 286,948,695 ordinary shares of 1p.
The Company’s new International Securities Identification Number (ISIN) is GB00BHSRZC82.
