Hunch Ventures Subscription Monies

As noted in the announcement of 19 August 2021, the Hunch Ventures Subscription is conditional upon the provision of the Bank Guarantee pursuant to the provisions of the Subscription Agreement. The Company is pleased to inform that Hunch Ventures has instead transferred the Subscription monies to one of the Group's Indian bank accounts and the Group now has access to the funds. The Company views this as a better result than a bank guarantee and as such satisfies the conditions of the Subscription.

Unless otherwise defined, capitalised terms within this announcement have the same meaning as those within the 'Definitions' section of the Company's announcement dated 19 August 2021 under RNS Number 2252J .
