Accordingly, the Company has requested the suspension of the listing in the Company’s ordinary shares on the Standard Segment of the Official List, and trading on the London Stock Exchange’s Main Market has been suspended with effect from 8.00am on the 23 March 2023, pending the publication of a prospectus and the application by the enlarged group for the Company to have its enlarged share capital listed on the Standard Segment of the Official List and admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange’s Main Market.
Shareholders should be aware that there is a possibility that the Intended Acquisition will not proceed or that the terms may change depending upon the outcome of due diligence. The Company will provide further update on the Intended Acquisition in due course.
