First Subscription Shares

The Company announced on 5 February 2016 that it had allotted 14,279,371 ordinary shares (the "First
Subscription Shares") at an issue price of 3.5 pence per ordinary share and had raised gross proceeds
of approximately £0.50 million. Admission of the First Subscription Shares became effective at 08:00
am (UK time) on 9 February 2016. The First Subscription Shares rank pari passu with the existing
ordinary shares, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or
paid after the date of issue.

Following the issue of the First Subscription Shares, the total issued share capital of the Company
increased to 109,475,179 ordinary shares.

Second Subscription Shares

Application has been for the Second Subscription Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and AltX
(“Admission”). It is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings will commence at
8.00 a.m. (UK time) on 9 March 2016 on AIM and at 9.00 a.m. (South African time) on 9 March 2016 on

Following Admission of the Second Subscription Shares, the total issued share capital of the Company
will increase to 130,194,823 ordinary shares (the "Enlarged Issued Share Capital"). The Company does
not hold any shares in treasury and therefore the total number of voting rights will be 130,194,823
ordinary shares. 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 Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules following
Admission of the Second Subscription Shares anticipated on 9 March 2016.

Following Admission of the Second Subscription Shares, the following subscribers’ notifiable holdings
in the Enlarged Issued Share Capital will be:
