The Fundraising is conditional on the new Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the Fundraising being admitted to the standard listing segment of the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority and admitted to trading on the main market for listed securities of London Stock Exchange plc (“Admission“).
