Norman Broadbent raises £75,347 by way of a subscription

Norman Broadbent plc (LON:NBB), a leading London quoted Professional Services firm offering a diversified portfolio of integrated Leadership Acquisition & Advisory Services, has announced that it has raised £75,347 before expenses by way of a subscription of 1,116,252 ordinary shares at 6.75 pence per Ordinary Share.

The Issue Price represents a premium of approximately 12.5 per cent to the closing mid-market price of NBB’s existing Ordinary Shares on 3rd December 2021 (being the last business day prior to this Announcement).

The Subscription is not being underwritten and is conditional on admission of the Subscription Shares to trading on AIM. The Subscription is being conducted pursuant to the existing authorities granted to the Directors of the Company at its annual general meeting on 25 June 2021. The Subscription Shares represent approximately 1.8 per cent. of the Company’s issued share capital as enlarged by the Subscription Shares.

Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the Subscription Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and it is expected that such Admission will occur at 8.00 a.m. 7th December 2021. The Subscription Shares will be issued credited as fully paid and will rank in full for all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid after the admission of the Subscription Shares, and will otherwise be identical to and rank on Admission pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares. The Subscription Shares are not being made available to the public and are not being offered or sold into any jurisdiction where it would be unlawful to do so.

Related party transactions: substantial shareholder participation

The Subscription is with one Substantial Shareholder, (as defined by the AIM Rules) who has subscribed for Subscription Shares at the Issue Price. Details of the Subscription Shares for which Substantial Shareholder will be subscribing are displayed below, together with the expected shareholdings at Admission:
