Results of Placing, PrimaryBid Offer and Subscription

Directors' Dealings

Related Party Transactions

EQTEC plc (AIM: EQT), a world innovation company enabling the Net Zero Future through advanced solutions for hydrogen, biofuels, SNG and other energy production, announces that, further to its announcement of 4.50 p.m. yesterday (the "Launch Announcement"), it has successfully completed the Fundraising which is now closed.

The Fundraising has raised GBP3.75 million (before expenses) through the placing of 233,385,650 Placing Shares, subscription for 73,614,350 PrimaryBid Shares and subscription for 443,000,000 Subscription Shares, in each case at an Issue Price of 0.5 pence per share.

Capitalised terms used but not defined in this announcement shall have the meaning given to them in the Launch Announcement.

Related Party Transactions - Directors' and substantial shareholder participation in the Subscription

Yoel Aleman, David Palumbo, Jeffrey Vander Linden, Nauman Babar and Thomas Quigley, each of whom are Directors of the Company (the "Subscribing Directors"), have agreed to subscribe for an aggregate of 37,000,000 Subscription Shares at the Issue Price . The Subscribing Directors are related parties as defined in the AIM Rules. As a result, their participation in the Subscription are related party transactions pursuant to Rule 13 of the AIM Rules.

Altair Group Investment Limited ("Altair") has an existing holding of 1,634,091,107 Ordinary Shares in the Company representing 19.0 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital and, as such, is a substantial shareholder as defined in the AIM Rules . Altair has agreed to subscribe for 80,000,000 Subscription Shares at the Issue Price . As a result, their participation in the Subscription is a related party transaction pursuant to Rule 13 of the AIM Rules.

Accordingly, Ian Pearson, the independent director of the Company (being the director other than the Subscribing Directors), having consulted with the Company's Nominated Adviser, Strand Hanson Limited, considers the terms of the participation by the Subscribing Directors and Altair to be fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.
