Admission to AIM

Confirmation of Board appointment

 

N Brown is pleased to announce that admission of the Enlarged Share Capital to trading on AIM will take place at 8.00 a.m. today, when completion of the Capital Raising to raise gross proceeds of c.£100 million, the results of which were announced on 15 December 2020, will also occur. At the same time, the admission of the Existing Ordinary Shares to listing on the premium listing segment of the Official List and to trading on the Main Market will be cancelled. The Ordinary Shares will continue to trade under the TIDM "BWNG".

 

Total voting rights

The total number of Ordinary Shares with voting rights in the Company with effect from AIM Admission is 460,483,231 and each Ordinary Share entitles the holder to a single vote at general meetings of the Company. The Company holds no Ordinary Shares in treasury. The figure of 460,483,231 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change of their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

 

As a result of the Capital Raising, it is expected that the Substantial Shareholder will hold 184,196,762 Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 40% of the Enlarged Share Capital.

 

As a result of the Capital Raising, it is expected that the Concert Party (defined as the Substantial Shareholder, Nigel Alliance, Joshua Alliance and other persons set out in paragraph 5(a) of Part 11 of the Prospectus) will hold 241,475,491 Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 52% of the Enlarged Share Capital.

 

Confirmation of Board appointment

As set out in the Prospectus, the Company also confirms that the appointment of Joshua Alliance to the Board as a Non-Executive Director will take effect from admission to AIM at 8.00 a.m. today.

 

Capitalised terms not otherwise defined in the text of this announcement have the meanings given in the Company's announcement of 5 November 2020 entitled "Placing and Open Offer to raise c. £100 million" and the Prospectus.
