Monreal PLC


("Monreal" or the "Company")


Admission to the NEX Exchange Growth Market


The Board of the Company is pleased to announce that trading in its ordinary shares of 0.25p each ("Ordinary Shares") has commenced at 8.00 a.m. today on the NEX Exchange Growth Market ("Admission"), under ticker MORE and ISIN number GB00BYT56612. 

The Company has net funds of approximately £730,000.


The Company's objective is to generate an attractive rate of return for shareholders, predominantly through capital appreciation, by taking advantage of opportunities to invest in the technology, media, and telecoms (TMT) sector.

The Company aims to provide equity, debt, and equity-related investment capital, such as convertible loans, to growing companies which are seeking capital for growth and development, consolidation or acquisition, or as pre-IPO financing. The Company may undertake a reverse takeover or may make investments into companies that it considers good candidates for future reverse takeovers.

In addition, the Company may invest in publicly traded equities which have securities listed on a stock exchange or over-the-counter market. These investments may be in combination with additional debt or equity-related financing, and in appropriate circumstances in collaboration with other value added financial and/or strategic investors.

The Company is not geographically restricted in terms of where it will consider making investments but is anticipated that most of its attention will be focussed on the UK. It will consider any geographical area, to the extent that the investment fits within the Company's investment criteria. The Company will not be subject to any borrowing or leveraging limits.

The Company does not intend to be an active investor, but the Directors will reserve the right to seek representation on the board of the investee company where they feel that an investee company would benefit from their skill and expertise.

The Directors believe that their broad, collective experience, together with their extensive network of contacts, will assist them in identifying, evaluating and funding suitable investment opportunities. External advisers and investment professionals will be engaged as necessary to assist with sourcing and due diligence of prospective opportunities. The Directors will also consider appointing additional directors with relevant experience if the need arises.

The Company intends to deliver shareholder returns principally through capital growth rather than capital distribution via dividends.
