Admission to Trading on AIM
On 22nd April 2021, admission and dealings commenced on AIM by way of a Placing of 57,187,870 Shares at 193 pence per Share.
Reasons for the admission
The Directors believe that Admission will be an important step in the Group’s development and will assist the growth of the business. In addition to broadening the Group’s shareholder base, admission to trading on AIM gives the Company the capacity, if required, to raise capital from the equity market or issue shares as consideration to support its strategic objectives as suitable opportunities arise.
The proceeds raised at the time of Admission will be used to repay existing debt facilities and fund the Group’s working capital requirements, in particular the Group’s expansion of its smartphone rental proposition
The Directors believe that Admission will further strengthen the Company’s brand, visibility and profile in the re-commerce market, and allow the Company to utilise share incentive schemes to attract and incentivise key management.
