Falanx Group successful fundraising of £1.25 million

Falanx Group plc (LON:FLX) has announced that the Fundraise, further details of which are contained in the Company’s announcement on 28 September 2020, has now closed. The Company has raised gross proceeds of £1.25 million1 through the successful placing and subscription of 125,000,000 Ordinary Shares1 with certain existing and new institutional and other investors at a price of 1 penny per New Ordinary Share.  A significant proportion of this is through long-term EIS & VCT investment.

As announced in the Fundraise Launch Announcement, the Company is currently in a close period under MAR pending announcement of its annual results to 31 March 2020. In consequence of that, whilst certain members of the Board and of senior management are keen to participate in the Fundraise, they are not currently permitted to under the MAR framework. However, the Board recognise the importance of Director participation for Shareholders and, as such, certain members of the Board and of senior management intend to subscribe for the Subscription Shares at the first available opportunity following the publication of the annual results to 31 March 2020. This subscription is expected to total £75,000 in respect of 7,500,000 New Ordinary Shares and will be carried out at the Issue Price on identical terms as those of the Placing.
