Rufus Short85,021,9611.9
Jeffrey Malaihollo153,125,0003.5

Director Salary Reductions

In addition to the proposed issue of Director Salary Shares, and as previously announced, as part of the ongoing cost cutting measures, Rufus Short has agreed to a 25 per cent. reduction in his salary from £130,000 (to £97,500), Jeff Malaihollo to a 20 per cent. reduction in his salary from £45,000 (to £36,000) and Arun Srivastava to a 31 per cent. reduction in his salary from £36,000 (to £24,840), all with effect from 29 April 2019. The Directors expect these reduced salaries to remain in place until at least the end of 2019 and will make further announcements regarding their remuneration as appropriate.

In addition, to further assist the Company reduce costs and conserve capital, Rufus Short has agreed to waive any entitlement to the £25,250 in unpaid salary previously deferred and Jeff Malaihollo has agreed to reduce his salary by a further 50 per cent. from £36,000 (to £18,000) between 1 May 2019 and 31 August 2019, equating to a further saving to the Company of £6,000.

Related Party Transaction

The issue of Director Salary Shares to Rufus Short and Jeff Malaihollo constitutes a related party transaction in accordance with AIM Rule 13. Dr Arun Srivastava who is not receiving Director Salary Shares and is therefore independent for this purpose, considers after consultation with the Company’s Nominated Adviser, that the terms of the issue of the Director Salary Shares to Rufus Short and Jeff Malaihollo are fair and reasonable, in so far as the Company’s shareholders are concerned.

Admission to Trading on AIM and Total Voting Rights

Application has been made for the 2,263,980,000 New Ordinary Shares, which will rank pari passu with the Company’s issued Ordinary Shares, to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that Second Admission will become effective and that dealings in the New Ordinary Shares will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 20 May 2019.

Following the issue of the New Ordinary Shares, the Company will have 4,412,241,762 Ordinary Shares in issue. No Ordinary Shares are held in treasury. The figure of 4,412,241,762 Ordinary Shares may be used by the Company’s 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.
