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, first announced on 11 July 2014, is now unconditional in all respects save for the admission to trading on AIM of the 235,705,868 Placing Shares. 

Application has been made to AIM for the admission of the Placing Shares and it is expected that Admission will become effective on 30 July 2014 and that dealings will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 30 July 2014.

Following Admission, the Group will have 772,537,841 Ordinary Shares, with one voting right each, in issue. The Group does not hold any shares in treasury. Accordingly, the figure of 772,537,841 Ordinary Shares may be used by shareholders in the Group 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 share capital of the Group under the Financial Services Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
