REVOLUTION BARS GROUP PLC

Posting of Circular and Notice of General Meeting

Revolution Bars Group plc, a leading UK operator of 74 premium bars, trading under the 'Revolution' and 'Revolución de Cuba' brands , announces that further to the announcement on 5 June 2020 regarding its intention to raise approximately £15.0 million in gross proceeds by way of a Firm Placing and Placing and Open Offer and the proposed cancellation of the admission of the Company's Ordinary Shares to listing on the FCA's Official List and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's Main Market and the Company's Enlarged Issued Share Capital being admitted to trading on AIM, posted a circular to shareholders yesterday evening (the "Circular").

The Circular contains a notice convening a general meeting of the Company (the "General Meeting") to be held at 10.00 a.m. on 26 June 2020 at the Company's Southern Office at Revolution Bars Group plc, Maxwell Road, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire HP9 1QX.

Compulsory UK Government measures are currently in force requiring people to stay at home except for certain limited reasons and prohibiting, among other things, public gatherings of more than six people. Arrangements for the General Meeting remain subject to the Stay at Home Measures. If restrictions on public gatherings remain in force as at the date of the General Meeting, shareholders must not attend the General Meeting in person, and we will refuse entry to anyone who seeks to attend in person. Shareholders are strongly encouraged to register their vote in advance by appointing the Chairperson of the meeting as their proxy and giving voting instructions.

The situation is constantly evolving, and the UK Government may change current restrictions or implement further measures. Any changes to the General Meeting arrangements will be communicated through the Company's website and, where appropriate, by Regulatory Information Service announcement.

A copy of the Circular (including the notice of General Meeting) will shortly be available from the Company's website, www.revolutionbarsgroup.com , has also been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will be available shortly at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism .
