The following amendment has been made to the ‘Director/PDMR Shareholding’ announcement released on 18 December 2017 at 09:30 a.m. under RNS No 6201Z.
The original announcement incorrectly stated that Osman Abdullah converted £46,771 of convertible loan notes into 584,637 ordinary shares, when it should have read that he converted £89,811 of convertible loan notes into 1,122,637 ordinary shares.
All other details remain unchanged.
