The PrimaryBid Offer and the Placing are conditional on the new Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the PrimaryBid Offer and the Placing being admitted to trading on AIM("Admission"). The PrimaryBid Offer and Placing are also conditional upon Shareholder approval at the General Meeting of the Company which will be held at 49 Queen Victoria Street, London EC4N 4SA, at 11.00 a.m. on 1 July 2021.  Admission of the PrimaryBid Shares is expected to take place at 8.00 a.m. on 5 July 2021. The PrimaryBid Offer will not be completed without the Placing also being completed.

The Company will use the funds raised for the following purposes:

o  The remainder of the net proceeds will be used to strengthen the Company's balance sheet, including the repayment of short and long term debt

Details of the Offer

The Company highly values its retail investor base which has supported the Company alongside institutional investors over several years. Given the longstanding support of retail shareholders, the Company believes that it is appropriate to provide retail and other interested investors the opportunity to participate in the Offer.

As such, there is no need for publication of a prospectus pursuant to the Prospectus Regulation Rules, or for approval of the same by the Financial Conduct Authority in its capacity as the UK Listing Authority. The Offer is not being made into any Restricted Jurisdiction or any other jurisdiction where it would be unlawful to do so.

There is a minimum subscription of £250 per investor under the terms of the PrimaryBid Offer which is open to existing shareholders and other investors subscribing via the PrimaryBid mobile app.

For further details please refer to the PrimaryBid website at www.PrimaryBid.com. The terms and conditions on which the Offer is made, including the procedure for application and payment for New Ordinary Shares, is available to all persons who register with PrimaryBid.

Investors should make their own investigations into the merits of an investment in the Company. Nothing in this announcement amounts to a recommendation to invest in the Company or amounts to investment, taxation or legal advice.

It should be noted that a subscription for New Ordinary Shares and investment in the Company carries a number of risks. Investors should consider the risk factors set out on PrimaryBid.com before making a decision to subscribe for New Ordinary Shares.
