("Spinnaker" or the "Company")

Expiry of Investment Commitment


On 19 June 2019 Spinnaker announced the terms of a contractual investment commitment, via Peterhouse Capital Limited, for a maximum of £1.4 million (the "Investment Commitment") from a single professional investor, conditional on the completion of the Proposed Acquisition of Kanabo Research Ltd and admission to trading by an agreed long-stop date.

The Investment Commitment was extended by agreement with the investor, while the Company has been awaiting regulatory clearance to proceed with the transaction.

The investor has notified the Company that it will not extend the long-stop date beyond its current expiry on 31 March 2020, and therefore the Investment Commitment will fall away on that date.


Commenting on the developments, Andy Morrison, Chairman of Spinnaker said:

"We would like to express our appreciation to the investor for their commitment since the arrangement was agreed in July 2019.  The decision by the investor is not surprising in the current market environment and both the Company and the investor remain open to resuming discussions as and when conditions improve."
