("PCI Pal" or the "Company")
Results of Placing
The Company is pleased to announce that a total of 11,000,000 Placing Shares have been conditionally placed at a price of 45 pence per Placing Share, raising gross proceeds of £4.95 million (approximately £4.6 million after expenses). The Placing Shares will represent approximately 25.8% of the Company's enlarged issued ordinary share capital (excluding treasury shares).
William Catchpole, CEO of PCI Pal, said:
"We are delighted by the response we have received from new and existing shareholders. The funds raised through the placing will enable us to invest in the business and capitalise on the significant commercial opportunities in North America and elsewhere. We look forward to this exciting next stage of development of PCI Pal."
Share capital on completion of the Placing
Application has been made for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that Admission will occur on or around 31 January 2018.
Following Admission, the Company's enlarged issued share capital will comprise 42,721,178 Ordinary Shares with 167,229 Ordinary Shares held in treasury and the total voting rights in the Company will be 42,553,949. This 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 in the interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
