Tiziana Life Sci PLC - Proposed Admission to the Official List

RNS Number : 6653U
Tiziana Life Sciences PLC
30 July 2020
 

Tiziana Life Sciences plc

("Tiziana" or the "Company")

Early notification of proposed admission to the Official List and cancellation of trading on AIM

New York/London, 30 July 2020  - Tiziana Life Sciences plc the dual listed (NASDAQ:TLSA & UK AIMS:TILS) today announces its intention to apply for admission to listing of its ordinary shares (the "Ordinary Shares") on the standard listing segment of the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority (the "Official List") and admission to trading on the London Stock Exchange plc's (the "London Stock Exchange") main market (the "Main Market") for listed securities (together, "Admission").

 

The Company Directors believe that a standard listing in conjunction with its NASDAQ dual listing will support the long-term strategy of the Company by providing the Company with a more appropriate platform for its growth as an international company. In addition, the Company Directors believe that Admission will raise the Company's global profile, increase its trading liquidity and provide the Company with a greater range of potential investors for its ordinary shares.

Admission will be through an introduction of the existing Ordinary Shares. The Company will not be issuing new shares in conjunction with the proposed Admission or the publication of the related prospectus, and has no current intention to raise capital through the issue of new shares in the UK.

Pursuant to Rule 41 of the AIM Rules for Companies, the Company will, in due course, give formal notice of the intended cancellation of trading of its Ordinary Shares on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange ("AIM").

It is expected that the Company will publish its prospectus in connection with Admission in late Q3 or early Q4 2020 and that the Ordinary Shares will be admitted to the Official List, commence trading on the Main Market and simultaneously trading will be cancelled on AIM (and at least 20 business days after the formal announcement under Rule 41 of the AIM Rules for Companies), subject to the receipt of the necessary approvals from the FCA and the London Stock Exchange.

The Company's shares will continue to be registered with their existing ISIN number GB00BKWNZY55. The Company's ticker symbol in the UK will continue to be TILS. The prospectus will, when issued, be made available on the Company's website at www.tizianalifesciences.com.

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014. The person who arranged the release of this information is Keeren Shah, Finance Director of Tiziana.
