Immotion Group plc
(“Immotion Group”, “Immotion”, the “Company” or the “Group”)
Result of Placing
Immotion Group, the UK-based immersive virtual reality out-of-home entertainment group, is pleased to announce that it has raised gross proceeds of approximately £1.35 million as result of the fundraising announced earlier today (the “Placing”).
A total of 54,062,200 Placing Shares in the Company have been conditionally placed by WH Ireland Limited and Alvarium Capital Partners Limited (the “Brokers”) with new and existing investors at a price of 2.5 pence per share (the “Issue Price”).
Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and it is anticipated that dealings in the Placing Shares will commence on AIM at 8.00 a.m. on 27 May 2020 (“Admission”). The Placing Shares will represent approximately 14.2 per cent. of the Company’s issued share capital following completion of the Placing (“Enlarged Share Capital”). The Issue Price represents a discount of approximately 28.6 per cent. to the closing mid-market price of Immotion’s existing ordinary shares of 3.5 pence on 5 May 2020 (being the last business day prior to the announcement of the Placing earlier today).
The Placing is subject upon, inter alia, shareholder approval, Admission becoming effective and the Placing Agreement becoming unconditional and not being terminated in accordance with its terms.
The Company expects to publish a circular in connection with the Placing, in due course, which will contain a notice convening the General Meeting in order to approve certain matters necessary to implement the Fundraising.
A copy of the Circular will be made available on the Company’s website https://immotion.co.uk/investors
The Circular sets out arrangements for the General Meeting in light of the current British Government restrictions placed on public gatherings in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Under the current prohibition on non-essential travel and public gatherings, it will not be possible for Shareholders to attend the General Meeting in person. Shareholders are strongly urged to vote by proxy in advance of the deadline by completing their form of proxy in accordance with the instructions and further details are set out in the Circular and the form of proxy. The General Meeting is expected to be convened for 10.00 a.m. on 22 May 2020, with the minimum necessary quorum of two shareholders (which will be facilitated by Immotion) and will take place at 2-4 Henry Street, Bath, England, BA1 1JT.
Should Shareholders wish to ask any questions in relation to the Placing or the Resolutions, which they may otherwise have asked at the General Meeting had they been in attendance, they are encouraged to contact the Company prior to the General Meeting by email to [email protected]. We will consider all questions received and, if appropriate, provide a written response or publish answers on our website (https://immotion.co.uk/investors) as soon as practical to do so following the completion of the General Meeting. Any questions should be submitted via email by 10.00 a.m. on 20 May 2020.
The actions that Shareholders should take to vote on the Resolutions will be set out in the Circular to be posted in due course, along with the recommendations of the Directors.
Following Admission, the Company’s issued and fully paid share capital will consist of 379,538,083 Ordinary Shares, all of which carry one voting right per share. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury. The figure of 379,538,083 Ordinary Shares may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority.
Capitalised terms used but not defined in this announcement have the meanings given to them in the Company’s announcement released earlier today in respect of the Placing unless the context provides otherwise.
