Notice of GM and Proposed Delisting


Quantum Exponential Group plc (AQUIS: QBIT), a company focused on investing in quantum technology, announces that a General Meeting ("GM") will be held on 15 March 2024 at 10:00 a.m., at the offices of Fladgate LLP, 16 Great Queen Street, London, WC2B 5DG United Kingdom. At the GM, there will, inter alia, be a resolution to propose the cancellation of the admission of the Company's shares to trading on the AQSE Growth Market (the "Withdrawal Resolution").

Since Admission to the AQSE Growth Market in November 2021, the Company has positioned itself to exploit the significant progress it has made through further investments as the quantum sector moves to the next stage of development.  To facilitate such further investments, the Directors have been in discussions in recent months with potential investors to secure additional capital through a separate fund vehicle for the Company.  Whilst these parties have expressed serious interest in making an investment in a fund involving Quantum Exponential, the Directors have been told repeatedly that the Company's status as a publicly traded company has been one of the impediments to completing any investment agreements as these investors generally prefer to invest in private entities or those with a typical unlisted fund structure.

Therefore, the Directors have concluded that it is in the interest of shareholders to withdraw from the AQSE Growth Market ("Withdrawal") to better facilitate the raising of additional funds based on this feedback. However, there is no guarantee that Withdrawal will result in further funds being raised.

Since incorporation there has also been a severe downturn in general liquidity and valuations for all micro-cap listed companies. This has not been helped by the geopolitical situation along with inflation and interest rate rises.

Significant cost savings, both directly and indirectly could also be achieved which in turn would offer the potential for higher returns over time for shareholders if the Company was de-listed.

For the reasons above the Directors have unanimously concluded that it is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders to seek Withdrawal.

Subject to the Withdrawal Resolution being passed, trading in the Company's Shares will cease at 7:00 a.m., UK time, on 25 March 2024.

Post cancellation

The Directors are aware that the proposed Withdrawal, should the Withdrawal Resolution be approved by the requisite majority of the shareholders at the GM, would make it more difficult for shareholders to buy and sell Ordinary Shares should they wish to do so.

The Directors are reviewing options to enable shareholders to buy and sell shares through a trading platform and further details will be provided in due course.

A circular, including the GM notice, will be posted to shareholders containing further information in relation to the proposed cancellation, and will be made available to Shareholders on the Company's website at

This announcement contains information that, prior to its disclosure, was inside information as stipulated under Regulation 11 of the Market Abuse (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019/310 (as amended).

The Directors take responsibility for this announcement.
