The Company’s issued share capital consists of 11,764,658 ordinary shares with a nominal value of 10p each ('Ordinary Shares').¬† This figure reflects a discrepancy of 1 Ordinary Share against the figure previously stated. Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the additional 1 new Ordinary Share, which ranks pari passu with existing Ordinary Shares, to be admitted to trading on AIM as soon as is practicable.

The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in Treasury and each Ordinary Share carries one voting right. Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company is 11,764,658.

The figure of 11,764,658 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for 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 FSA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
