The warrants have been exercised by Charles Morgan, Chairman of the Company. Following this exercise, Mr. Morgan is interested in 45,541,666 Ordinary Shares, representing 9.81 per cent of the Company’s enlarged issued share capital. The consideration of approximately £46,000 due on exercise of the warrants has been satisfied through the settlement of loans of the same amount made by Charles Morgan to the Company.

Application will be made for the Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on the AQSE Growth Market and admission is expected to become effective on 17 November  2020.
