Pursuant to the Fundraising and further to the Company’s announcement on 23 January 2023, John Cronin, Heather Peacock, David Johns-Powell and Peter Tyler, each being a Director of the Company, have now participated a total of £115,000 in the Fundraising as follows:

Total voting rights

Following the Admission, the Company will have 271,534,423 Ordinary Shares in issue. The Company holds no Ordinary Shares in Treasury. 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.

Capitalised terms used but not otherwise defined in this announcement shall have the same meanings ascribed to such terms in the Company’s announcement at 5.11 p.m. on 23 January 2023 unless otherwise specified.

John Cronin, Executive Chairman, CyanConnode, commented:

“We recently announced an order for c. 1 million units, taking orders won this financial year to 2.3 million units. This shows significant growth compared to the previous year where we had won orders for a total of 1.3 million units in all years prior to 31 March 2022. There are currently tenders out in India for more than 100 million units. The funds raised by this placing will allow us to maintain momentum and win some of the large opportunities being presented to us at this time. On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank all shareholders who have participated in this fundraising for their continued support.”
