("Tiziana" or the "Company")


Subscription to raise £150,000 with warrants attached


London, November 20, 2017 - Tiziana Life Sciences plc ("Tiziana", AIM: TILS), a clinical stage biotechnology company developing targeted drugs for cancer and autoimmune diseases, today announces that it has raised £150,000 in cash by the issue of 100,000 new ordinary shares at a price of 150p per share, each new ordinary share having a warrant attached entitling the holder to subscribe for one new ordinary share at a price of 160p per share, exercisable until 24 November 2022.


Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange to admit the 100,000 new ordinary shares to trading on AIM.  Admission of the new ordinary shares is expected to occur on or around 24 November 2017.  The new ordinary shares will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares. Following the issue of shares detailed above the so enlarged issued share capital of the Company will comprise 123,927,938 ordinary shares of 3p each.


The Company has granted options over a total of 10,149,403 ordinary shares of which 4,752,500 are vested at exercise prices between 15p and £1.25p per share and 5,396,903 remain subject to vesting conditions (at potential exercise prices ranging from 15p to £1.925 per share). In addition warrants to subscribe for a total of 4,239,579 ordinary shares at exercise prices between 50p and £2.50 are outstanding, in additional to the new warrants granted in the fundraise.


Therefore the fully diluted issued share capital of the Company is 138,416,920 ordinary shares (assuming all options and warrants, vested and unvested, exercised and exercisable, were converted).


In conformity with DTR 5.6.1 the Company notifies that as at the date of this announcement, it has a single class of shares in issue being ordinary shares of 3 pence each ("Ordinary Shares") and that following the issue of the 100,000 ordinary shares referred to above, the total number of Ordinary Shares in issue will be 123,927,938.  There are no Ordinary Shares held in Treasury.  Each Ordinary Share entitles the holder to a single vote at general meetings of the Company.


This figure (123,927,938) may be used by shareholders (and others with notification obligations) as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.


This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014.
