The board of Quantum Blockchain Technologies (AIM: QBT) wishes to inform shareholders that it has today issued 17,500,000 ordinary shares of 0.25 pence each (“Warrant Exercise Shares”) at a price of 2 pence per share, following the exercise of 17,500,000 warrants of the 100,000,000 warrants granted to Mr John Story in relation to the £1m placing announced on 22 February 2022.

The proceeds, amounting to £350,000 (before expenses), will increase QBT’s working capital designated for the Research and Development (“R&D”) programme.

Application will be made for the 17,500,000 Warrant Exercise Shares, which will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares of 0.25 pence each in the Company (“Ordinary Shares”) to be admitted to trading on AIM (“Admission”). It is expected that Admission will become effective, and dealings will commence at 8:00 a.m. on or around 4 November 2021.

Following admission of the Warrant Exercise Shares, the Company’s total issued share capital will comprise 915,051,851 ordinary shares of 0.25 pence each. 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 in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA’s Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
