Further re voluntary winding-up

The Board has received through its advisers an email from Michael Meyers, who has recently acquired 29.9 per cent. of the entire issued share capital of the Company.  The email requests the board of directors cancel or agree to adjourn the EGM to be held on 2nd May and states that "both resolutions will be rejected by holders of approximately 81% of the equity".

The email states that Mr Meyers has been informed of the voting intentions of two other shareholders, "John McKeon holding 26.6% of the equity & Peterhouse Corporate Finance acting for Flare Capital with 24.9% of the equity", but that the shareholders are not acting in concert. The Board notes that all three shareholders have only recently acquired shares in the Company.

The email suggests that the board of directors should resign and appoint Mr Meyers and nominees of the other two shareholders as directors, as well as suggesting a possible independent director, "if you felt that this was necessary."

The email concludes, "In view of the price having risen substantially today I think action is necessary without delay."

The extraordinary general meeting of the Company's shareholders is due to be held at 11:00 a.m. on 2 May 2018 in order to approve the proposals, following which a further announcement will be made.
