Proteome Sciences plc

("Proteome Sciences" or the "Company")

Loan amendment to enable conversion into ordinary shares

On 3 July 2018, the Company entered into a GBP1 million loan facility with Vulpes Investment Management Private Limited ("VIM") (the "Loan"). On 30 March 2021, the Company announced that the Loan had been amended such that the Loan (of which GBP700,000 is currently drawn) and all accrued interest (GBP59,657 as at 31 May 2021) is now repayable on 1 May 2022 ("Drawn Loan").

The Directors of the Company are now pleased to announce that the Loan has been amended such that until 30 April 2022, VIM may convert part (being not less than GBP50,000 or a multiple thereof) or all of the Drawn Loan and accrued interest to 31 December 2020 (being GBP51,538) into new ordinary shares of the Company (the "Loan Amendment"). The conversion price is 7.16p per share, which is the average of the closing middle market price for the ordinary shares of the Company during the five consecutive trading days immediately prior to entering into the Loan Amendment. If all the Drawn Loan and accrued interest to 31 December 2020 is converted it would result in the issue of new ordinary shares representing approximately 3.4 per cent. of the then issued share capital and take VIM's total shareholding to approximately 25.0 per cent.

If all the Drawn Loan (plus interest) is converted into new ordinary shares in the capital of the Company, the Drawn Loan (plus interest) will be deemed repaid in full. If part of the Drawn Loan (together with any interest) is converted into new ordinary shares in the capital of the Company, such part of the Drawn Loan (together with any interest) will be deemed repaid by the Company.

Mr Martin Diggle, Non-Executive Director of Proteome Sciences, is a director and partner of VIM. VIM manages the Vulpes Life Sciences Fund, which is a shareholder of 22.3 per cent. of Proteome Sciences. By virtue of Mr Diggle being a director of the Company and a partner and director of VIM, the Loan Amendment constitutes a related party transaction in accordance with the AIM Rules for Companies. Accordingly, the directors independent of the transaction, being all directors of the Company save for Mr Diggle, consider, having consulted with the Company's nominated adviser, that the Loan Amendment is fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.
