Grant of Options

The Company announces that it has agreed to grant 75 million share options to Alastair Clayton (Executive Director) and 75 million share options to Jeremy Taylor-Firth (Non-Executive Chairman) ("New Options").  Each New Option will entitle the holder to subscribe for new ordinary shares of 0.01p each in the Company ("Shares") at an exercise price of 0.30 pence per Share (being a 67% premium to the mid closing price on 8 January of 0.18 pence per Share) and are exercisable at any time within 7 years from the date of grant. 

Alastair Clayton currently holds 85 million Shares in the Company, which represent approximately 3.04% of the share capital of the Company.  Following the issue of the New Options, he will hold 162 million share options with an exercise price of 0.30 pence per Share.  Following the issue of the New Options, Jeremy Taylor-Firth (Chairman of the Company) will hold 87 million share options with an exercise price of 0.30 pence per Share. 

Following the grant of the New Options there will be 346m options in issue over Shares in the Company, representing 12.4% of its issued ordinary share capital.

The grant of the New Options is considered to be a related party transaction under the AIM Rules for Companies.  Donald Strang, having consulted with Cairn Financial Advisers LLP, the Company's nominated adviser, considers that the terms of the New Options are fair and reasonable as far as the Company's shareholders are concerned.
