Result of Annual General Meeting, Result of Open Offer, Issue of Equity, Total Voting Rights and Director Change

 

Feedback plc (AIM: FDBK), the specialist clinical communication company, is pleased to announce that at its annual general meeting held earlier today, all resolutions were duly passed. This includes each of the Fundraising Resolutions relating to the oversubscribed Placing and Open Offer which was announced by the Company on 2 November 2021.

 

The Company is also pleased to announce that, in relation to the Open Offer, which closed for receipt of applications at 11.00 a.m. on 26 November 2021 in accordance with its terms, received valid applications, including excess applications, from Qualifying Shareholders for more than twice the number of Open Offer Shares available. Consequently, the number of Open Offer Shares subscribed for has been subject to scale-back and 71,428,571 Open Offer Shares, being the maximum number of Open Offer Shares available pursuant to the terms of the Open Offer, are expected to be issued.

 

Accordingly, the Company has raised approximately £11.2 million in aggregate (before expenses) through the issue of 1,599,999,991 New Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Placing and Open Offer . Issue of the New Ordinary Shares remains conditional on Admission occurring.

 

Application has been made for 1,599,999,991  New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. Admission of the New Ordinary Shares is expected to occur at 8.00 a.m. on 30 November 2021. The New Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu with the Existing Ordinary Shares.

 

Total Voting Rights

Following Admission of the New Ordinary Shares, the Company's issued ordinary share capital will consist of 2,666,931,677 Ordinary Shares, carrying one vote each. The Company does not currently hold any shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company following Admission will be 2,666,931,677.  Shareholders may use this figure as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the issued share capital of the Company, under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

 

Director Change

With effect from the closing of the AGM, Lindsey Melvin has now retired from the board. In line with previously announced succession plans, a separate announcement will be made shortly regarding the appointment of Anesh Patel as Board Director and Chief Financial Officer.

 

Dr Tom Oakley, CEO, added:

"We are delighted with the Company's continued transformation - with Bleepa™ gaining momentum, securing its first commercial contract and significantly enhancing its offering, routes to market, scalability and security during the last year. Importantly, the rapid progress and significant developments since the period end highlight the scale of opportunity.

 

"We are now well funded to support accelerated revenue growth. The funds raised will enable Feedback to focus on further developing and rolling out Bleepa and CareLocker at pace, through targeted investment in sales and marketing and allow the Company to explore the NHS Community Diagnostic Centres and Indian tuberculosis opportunities in parallel, diversifying our strategic risk whilst capturing these important and timely opportunities.

 

"Using part of the proceeds of the Fundraising, the Company is planning to undertake a pilot scheme of the tuberculosis screening solution within some initial sites in India. The Director's believe that there is potential to generate significant revenues per year from each state that the solution is rolled out in.

 

"In parallel, the Company is piloting the CDC (Community Diagnostic Centres) solution with Sussex ICS as one of the exemplar sites for the £10 billion CDC initiative recently launched by NHS England to help address the elective care backlog, by bringing diagnostic services out of hospital settings and closer to patients. Forty new CDCs are set to open across England in a range of settings and are expected to begin providing services over the next few months to March 2022. 

 

"Reinforced with a new patient-centric cloud architecture and internationally recognised accreditations, Feedback is well placed to focus on driving international product deployment across public and private frameworks.

 

"We would like to thank existing and new shareholders for their support in the Fundraise as we build on the momentum achieved and develop new and exciting routes to market."
