Cautionary statement regarding forward-looking statements

This announcement contains forward-looking statements, including with respect to financial information, that are based on current expectations or beliefs, as well as assumptions about future events. These forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate only to historical or current facts. Forward-looking statements often use words such as "anticipate", "target", "expect", "estimate", "intend", "plan", "goal", "believe", "will", "may", "should", "would", "could", "is confident", or other words of similar meaning. Undue reliance should not be placed on any such statements because they speak only as at the date of this announcement and, by their very nature, they are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and can be affected by other factors that could cause actual results, and the Company's plans and objectives, to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. No representation or warranty is made that any forward-looking statement will come to pass.

You are advised to read the Prospectus when published and the information incorporated by reference therein in their entirety, and, in particular, the section of the Prospectus headed "Risk Factors", for a further discussion of the factors that could affect the Group's future performance and the industry in which it operates. In light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the events described in the forward-looking statements, including statements regarding prospective financial information, in this announcement may not occur. These statements are not fact and should not be relied upon as being necessarily indicative of future results, and readers of this announcement are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements, including those regarding prospective financial information.

No statement in this announcement is intended as a profit forecast, and no statement in this announcement should be interpreted to mean that underlying operating profit for the current or future financial years would necessarily be above a minimum level, or match or exceed the historical published operating profit or set a minimum level of operating profit.

Neither the Company nor Canaccord nor UBS are under any obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statement contained within this announcement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, other than in accordance with their legal or regulatory obligations (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the Prospectus Regulation Rules, the Listing Rules and the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules). Subject to the Prospectus Regulation Rules, the Listing Rules and the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules, the issue of this announcement shall not, in any circumstances, create any implication that there has been no change in the affairs of the Company since the date of this announcement or that the information in it is correct as at any subsequent date.

Information to Distributors

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained in Chapter 3 of the FCA Handbook Product Intervention and Product Governance Sourcebook (together, the "UK Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the UK Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the New Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that such securities are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail investors and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in paragraph 3 of the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all permitted distribution channels (the "Target Market Assessment"). Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, distributors should note that: the price of the New Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the New Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the New Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Capital Raise. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, the Joint Bookrunners will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of Chapter 9A or 10A respectively of the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the New Shares.

Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the New Shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.

ESKEN LIMITED

COMPLETION OF THE BOOKBUILDING PROCESS

1. Introduction

Following the announcement on 27 July 2021 of the Capital Raise, the Company announces the successful completion of the bookbuilding process for the Firm Placing and conditional Placing of Open Offer Shares, which has now closed, and subject to the conditions set out below, will raise gross proceeds of GBP55 million at a price of 14 pence per New Share (the "Offer Price").

2. Firm Placing

Pursuant to the Firm Placing, the Firm Placees have agreed to subscribe for 313,991,377 Firm Placed Shares at the Offer Price.

The Firm Placed Shares will represent approximately 30.6 per cent. of the Company's issued ordinary share capital immediately following Admission.

3. Placing and Open Offer

In addition, pursuant to the Placing and Open Offer, the Joint Bookrunners have placed 78,865,765 Open Offer Shares at the Offer Price with the Conditional Placees, subject to clawback to satisfy valid applications by Qualifying Shareholders under the Open Offer.

The Open Offer Shares will represent approximately 7.7 per cent. of the Company's issued ordinary share capital immediately following Admission.

Pursuant to the Open Offer, Qualifying Shareholders will be given the opportunity to apply for the Open Offer Shares at the Offer Price, on and subject to the terms and conditions of the Open Offer, pro rata to their holdings of Existing Shares on the Record Date on the following basis:

1 Open Offer Shares for every 8 Existing Shares

Open Offer Shares will also be made available to Qualifying Shareholders under the Excess Application Facility.

The Offer Price represents a discount of approximately 37.1 per cent. to the closing price on 27 July 2021 (being the last closing price prior to launch of the Capital Raise).

In setting the Offer Price, the Directors have considered the process by which the New Shares need to be offered to investors to ensure the success of the Placing and Open Offer and Firm Placing and raise a significant level of equity compared to the market capitalisation of the Company. The Directors believe that both the Offer Price and the discount are appropriate.

The Company expects to publish a Prospectus, setting out full details of the Open Offer and incorporating a Notice of General Meeting, later today. Shareholders should read the Prospectus in full before making any application for Open Offer Shares and/or Excess Open Offer Shares.

The Firm Placing and the Placing and Open Offer are conditional, inter alia, upon:

   (a)   the Resolutions being passed by Shareholders at the General Meeting; 

(b) the Placing Agreement having become unconditional in all respects and not having been terminated by the Joint Bookrunners in accordance with its terms prior to Admission; and

(c) Admission becoming effective by not later than 8.00 a.m. on 26 August 2021 (or such later time or date as the Company and the Joint Bookrunners may agree).

Applications will be made to the FCA for admission of the New Shares to listing on the premium listing segment of the Official List of the FCA and to the London Stock Exchange for admission of the New Shares to trading on its main market for listed securities. Subject to the conditions above being satisfied, it is expected that Admission will occur and that dealings for normal settlement in the New Shares will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 26 August 2021.

The New Shares will be issued credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the Existing Shares, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid on the Existing Shares by reference to a record date on or after Admission.

Net proceeds from the Investment as detailed in the Proposed Firm Placing and Open Offer announcement dated the 27 July 2021 is expected to be received on the same say, being 26 August 2021.

4. Director and Senior Management Participation

The Directors and certain senior managers of the Company are subscribing for an aggregate of 1,725,000 shares by way of direct subscriptions with the Company and/or taking up Open Offer Entitlements as shown in the table below.
