Business Update, Board Changes,

Business Update

Further to the announcement of 30 July 2021, the Board has concluded that the most appropriate way of progressing its strategy to operate a business authorised as an Electronic Money Institution by the UK Financial Conduct Authority is through acquisition. The Board has identified a potential target (the "Target") and accordingly is in advanced negotiations with the Target. No binding contract with the Target has been finalised at this stage and accordingly, there can be no assurance that this or any other acquisition will complete until contracts between parties are finalised.

Secondly, following the conclusion of the analysis of the lottery administration business announced on 1 September 2021, after which various options were being considered, the Company informs shareholders that it has received an offer for this business, which is currently under review by the Board. A decision on this is expected to be taken within two weeks.

Thirdly, the Company has concluded discussions regarding a joint venture with a leading developer of artificial intelligence ("AI") software within the financial technology sector. The use of AI software is a core element of the Group's strategy for radically improving payments between emerging and developed economies. It is expected that an announcement on this will be made during week commencing 4 October 2021.

Further updates will be provided at the appropriate time on all the above.

Board Changes

Arno Rudolf and Graeme Paton have both informed the Company that they are stepping down from the Board with effect from the end of September 2021 in order to concentrate on their other business activities. Mr Paton has also ceased his executive role. The Board would like to express its sincere thanks to both Mr Rudolf and Mr Paton for their contributions over the last few years.

Total Voting Rights

The Company has 12,729,533 ordinary shares of 1 pence each ("Ordinary Shares") in issue, each with one voting right. There are no shares held in treasury. Therefore, the Company's total number of Ordinary Shares and voting rights is 12,729,533 and this figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the 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 FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

PDMR Dealing

The Board have also been informed by Tintra Acquisitions Limited that it has sold 5,000 Ordinary Shares, and now holds 3,290,633 Ordinary Shares, equivalent to 25.85% of the issued Ordinary Shares.
