Result of General Meeting and Directors' Interests

 

 

Ceres Power Holdings plc is pleased to announce that at the General Meeting of the Group held earlier today, all resolutions were duly passed.

 

Accordingly, the conditional Placing and Open Offer, first announced on 12 March 2013, are now unconditional in all respects save for the admission to trading on AIM of the 108,464,733 Placing Shares and 9,882,890 Open Offer Shares.

 

Application has been made to AIM for the admission of the Placing Shares and Open Offer Shares. It is expected that Admission will become effective on 2 April 2013 and that dealings will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 2 April 2013.

 

Following Admission, the Group will have 536,563,285 Ordinary Shares, with one voting right each, in issue. The Group does not hold any shares in treasury.
