Issue of Equity & PDMR Dealing


Quixant (AIM: QXT), a leading provider of specialised computing platforms and monitors for gaming and slot machine applications, announces that it has applied to the London Stock Exchange for 8,200 ordinary shares of £0.001 pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). The new Ordinary Shares are being issued subsequent to exercises of options over Ordinary Shares ("Options") by a person discharging managerial responsibilities ("PDMR") and an employee of the Company.

On 17 October 2018, Sandra Lowman, Executive Assistant to the CEO of the Company, exercised Options over 4,100 Ordinary Shares. The Options were exercised at a price of 158.5 pence per Ordinary Share.

Total Voting Rights

It is expected that Admission will become effective and trading will commence in the new Ordinary Shares at 8.00 a.m. on 26 October 2018. On Admission the Company's issued share capital will comprise 66,356,282 Ordinary Shares. The Company holds no Ordinary Shares in treasury. Accordingly, the figure of 66,356,282 may be used by shareholders 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 Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
