The New Ordinary Shares represent approximately 14.91 per cent of the Company’s enlarged issued share capital. The Placing, which was oversubscribed, was undertaken by Northland Capital Partners Limited and the issue price of 5.25 pence represents a 22.4 per cent. discount to the Company’s 10 day average closing price.
The net proceeds of the Placing will provide working capital for the Company, as well as enable the Company to invest in current Partner Companies, restructure its existing debt, and support DataTern’s patent litigation programmes.
Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM (“Admission”). The New Ordinary Shares will, when issued, rank equally in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares. It is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings in the New Ordinary Shares will commence on 10 June 2015.
Following the Admission of the 29,311,230 New Ordinary Shares, the Company will have 196,620,573 ordinary shares in issue with each ordinary share holding one voting right.
