      Directors Dealings and Issue of Equity 
            Incentive shares 
   Given that the Company's trading business is yet to generate profits, the 
    directors recognise that conservative cash management continues to be of 
 paramount importance. Accordingly, in the context of these cash constraints 
 and pursuant to the authority given to the directors by shareholders at the 
   general meetings held on 16 June 2017 and 13 December 2017, the following 
awards of "equity incentives" have been made to directors of the Company and 
            consultants to the Company: 
  · Dr Chris Cleverly - 170,000,000 new ordinary shares; 
  · Mr Elias Pungong - 25,000,000 new ordinary shares; and 
  · Rt Hon Mark Simmonds - 25,000,000 new ordinary shares; 
  · consultants to the Company - 25,000,000 new ordinary shares, 
            together the "Incentive Shares". 
        50% of the Incentive Shares will be issued immediately (the "Initial 
Incentive Shares") and the remaining 50% of the Incentive Shares will "vest" 
and be issued once the Company's share price exceeds 0.2p for a period of 30 
days (the "Subsequent Incentive Shares"). Further announcements will be made 
      when the Company's obligation to issue the Subsequent Incentive Shares 
            Share Options 
    The following awards of share options have been made to directors of the 
 Company. All of these options "vest" and become exercisable after a holding 
            period of one year from the date of this announcement:

            Total Voting rights 
   The Initial Incentive Shares, the Director's Fee Shares and the Advisers' 
        Fee Shares (together the "New Shares") will rank pari passu with the 
    existing ordinary shares and amount to 7.2% of the enlarged issued share 
            capital of the Company upon issue, on or around the date of this 
     Following the issue of the New Shares, in accordance with the Financial 
Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules, the Company will have 
     4,146,434,579 ordinary shares of no par value in issue each with voting 
            rights. The Company does not hold any shares in treasury.

   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 
        share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's
