Application has been made for the total of 275,833,331 Ordinary Shares under the Placing and Settlement Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"), such Admission is expected to occur on or around 22 November 2019.

 

On Admission the Placing Shares and Settlement Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared after the date of their issue.

Following admission of the Placing Shares and Settlement Shares, the Company's enlarged issued share capital will comprise 1,696,640,188 Ordinary Shares.

About Inspirit Energy Holdings Plc

 

Inspirit Energy Holdings plc is developing and commercialising a highly efficient micro combined heat and power (mCHP) boiler for commercial applications. The boiler is specifically designed to meet the challenge of a reduced carbon energy supply and is capable of running on natural gas, LPG and Biofuels. The appliance produces hot water (for tap water or central heating) and electrical output simultaneously. The installation can be of single or multiple configuration and its high operating efficiency together with the off set of electricity costs provides a very attractive investment payback proposition. 

 

Inspirit intends to explore opportunities to license out the underlying technology and the Directors believe that, in some instances, the patents owned by Inspirit may be also used in the development of products other than a mCHP appliance. A prototype of the appliance has been tested and shown to be capable of simultaneous generation of up to 15kW thermal and up to 6.4kW electrical output. Once development of the appliance has been completed and commercialised, the Directors expect that the appliance will initially be marketed in the UK and Europe and eventually worldwide. Additional revenue streams may be possible through product licensing, sales of warranties and further development of the product.
