The Company has agreed with the August 2020 Warrant Holders, who own in aggregate a remaining 6,062,500 new equity warrants exercisable at 4 pence per new warrant share, to immediately exercise all the remaining August 2020 Warrants, raising gross proceeds of GBP242,500.

The New Warrants will be exercisable at a price of 5 pence per new warrant share at any time over the next three years.

The August 2020 Warrant shares are expected to commence dealing in 5 business days, following which the Company will have a total of 135,560,515 Ordinary Shares in issue. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury. Accordingly, the total number of voting rights in the Company will be 135,560,515 and shareholders may use this figure 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 Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Andrew Dennan, Chief Executive Officer, comments;

"We are pleased to have the support of the August 2020 Warrant Holders and the new proceeds received by the Company strengthens the Company's cash position and allows us to continue to focus on business development activity while in tandem resolving the production invoice receivable with our Slovenian JV partner as announced last month."
