Use of proceeds

The net proceeds of the Placing will enable the Company to enhance its proprietary technology capabilities, build upon its business development strategy and for general working capital purposes.

 

Business Update

The Company's Covid-19 testing platform, in which it securely records and feeds results into Public Health England's database for use by the NHS' Test and Trace service, continues to be deployed by companies across a range of sectors, and has recently been implemented by:

 

·    The pharmacy sector with 18 pharmacies;

·    A festive season outdoor event (as announced on 15 December 2020);

·    A major UK mobile operator; and

·    Badminton England (as announced on 15 December 2020)

 

Catenae is pleased also to announce that, further to an extensive review of the Company's organisational and security processes, the Company was awarded ISO 27001 following an audit on behalf of the International Standards Organisation (ISO). The Company was also awarded a Cyber Essentials accreditation. The Cyber Essentials scheme is operated on behalf of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

 

Both accreditations are important to the Company given that they are a procurement requirement in many business and organisations.

 

Admission

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange to admit 52,400,000 new ordinary shares to trading on AIM.  Admission of the 52,400,000 new ordinary shares is expected to occur on or around 3 February 2021 ("Admission").  The new ordinary shares will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares.

 

Total Voting Rights

For the purpose of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules, following the issue of shares detailed above, the enlarged issued share capital of the Company will comprise 273,491,508 ordinary shares of 0.2 pence each.

 

The above 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 Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

 

 

Guy Meyer, Chief Executive Officer, Catenae, said: "We are pleased to have been able to raise capital, which will allow us to accelerate the execution of our growth strategy both through our joint venture, Synovate Global Limited, and independently as Catenae.

 

"The ISO 27001 and Cyber Essentials accreditations demonstrate the Company's commitment to ensuring data protection and GDPR compliance in today's world where customers place increasing importance on being able to trust their service providers. These accreditations sit well within our blockchain ecosystem and further differentiate us from our competitors.

 

"The Company has a growing pipeline of opportunities ahead and looks forward to updating the market further in due course."
