Outcome of General Meeting

A General Meeting of Eight Capital (AQSE: ECP), the financial services operating company whose wholly-owned subsidiaries, Epsion Capital Limited ("Epsion") and Innovative Finance Srl ("InnFin"), source and deliver tech, fintech and other on-trend-sector transactions, was duly convened earlier today (the "Meeting").

The Meeting was held to enable shareholders to consider whether any, and if so, what steps should be taken to address the Company's "serious loss of capital" as defined and required by section 656(1) of the Companies Act 2006. Details of the situation which resulted in this position were included in the formal Notice of General Meeting and the Company's RNS of 22 November, 2021.

Following discussions at today's Meeting, the consensus of shareholders present concluded that the Company's recent corporate transactions, transformational growth strategy and reorganisation plans as detailed in its Corporate Update RNS of 27 September, 2021, would alleviate the issue without the need for any further steps being taken. Shareholders were not asked to vote at the general meeting as it was a discussion forum only.

The board always welcomes dialogue with shareholders and today's General Meeting provided a suitable forum for discussions on this issue to take place.
