Issue and allotment of Shares in connection with the Acquisition of Cybersprint B.V. ("Cybersprint") and Total Voting Rights
On 23rd February 2022, Darktrace announced the acquisition of Cybersprint for €47.5 million ($53.7 million) to be paid approximately 75% in cash and 25% in equity. The completion of the acquisition occurred on 1 March 2022. In order to satisfy the 25% of the purchase prices due in equity, the Company has issued and allotted an aggregate of 2,573,648 new ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the Company (the "New Shares"). An application has been made for the New Shares to be admitted to the Premium Listing Segment of the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority and to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange.
The New Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with Darktrace's existing ordinary shares of 1 pence each ("Ordinary Shares"). It is expected that admission will become effective on or around 7 March 2022.
As a result of 2,573,648 ordinary shares issued, the total number of ordinary shares outstanding is 701,785,353. Each Ordinary Share carries the right to one vote. Darktrace holds 2,341,783 Ordinary Shares as treasury shares with no voting rights. Therefore, the total voting rights figure of 699,443,570 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, Darktrace under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
