Related party transaction

 

As David Stoller (being a director of the Company) and Nigel Wray, Gate Ventures plc and Herald Investment Management Limited (substantial shareholders of r4e) are participating in the Placing, their participation in the Placing is considered to be a related party transaction as described in the AIM Rules. The Directors (with the exception of David Stoller), who have consulted with Allenby Capital Limited in its capacity as Nominated Adviser to the Company, consider the Placing to be fair and reasonable insofar as shareholders of the Company are concerned.

 

Admission and total voting rights

 

Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings in the Placing Shares on AIM will commence on 01 November 2016.

 

The Placing is conditional, among other things, upon Admission becoming effective. Following Admission, the issued share capital of the Company will comprise 612,894,792 Ordinary Shares with one voting right per share. The Company does not hold any shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of ordinary shares and voting rights in the Company will be 612,894,792. The above figure may be used by shareholders in the Company 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 share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
