Result of GM, Issue of Equity and Director Dealing

The Directors of Gunsynd (AIM: GUN, AQSE: GUN) announces that, at the General Meeting of the Company held earlier today, the resolutions put to the meeting were duly passed.

Issue of Equity

The Company announced on 11 June 2020 that it had raised GBP600,000 by way of a placing of 92,307,692 Placing Shares with existing and new investors at a placing price of 0.65 pence per Placing Share. The placing consists of the Firm Placing and the Conditional Placing.

At the GM of the Company held today, the Company sought shareholder approval to grant the Directors authority to issue and allot shares and grant rights to subscribe for shares in the Company for the purposes of Section 551 of the Act up to a maximum aggregate nominal amount of GBP212,500. Following the approval of the resolutions, the Company has issued the 17,786,799 Conditional Placing shares, 30,769,231 Placing Warrants and 2,769,231 broker warrants, as detailed in the announcement of the 11 June 2020.

Director Dealing

As announced on 11 June 2020, Hamish Harris and Donald Strang, Directors of the Company, have, on the same terms as the Placees, subscribed for GBP39,000 in aggregate, being 6 million new ordinary shares in the placing representing 6.5% of the total Placing ("Director Participation"). The Director Participation shares have now been issued as part of the Conditional Placing. Further, as participants in the placing on the same terms as the Placees, Hamish Harris and Don Strang have each received Placing Warrants, issued at one warrant for every three ordinary shares subscribed for on the same terms as the Placees.

The shareholdings of the Directors in question both prior to and subsequent to the Director Participation are as follows:

 Director         No. of      Subscription   Resultant        % of issued 
                   shares      shares         no. of shares    share capital

                 ----------  -------------  ---------------  --------------- 

Admission to AIM

The Conditional Placing Shares will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares and application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for admission of the 17,786,799 Conditional Placing shares to trading on AIM ("Admission"). Admission is expected to occur at 8.00 a.m. on or around 1 July 2020.

Total voting rights

Following Admission, the Company's issued share capital will comprise 166,828,585 Ordinary Shares with voting rights. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury. The figure of 166,828,585 Ordinary Shares may therefore be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
