ITM Power plc (LON:ITM), the energy storage and clean fuel company, today announced the Firm Placing to raise approximately £25.0m (before expenses) and Open Offer to raise up to £4.4m (before expenses).

Result of Open Offer
The Open Offer closed for acceptances at 11.00 a.m. on 17 October 2017 in accordance with its terms and was oversubscribed. The Company therefore announces that is has received valid acceptances in respect of 10,896,225 New Ordinary Shares pursuant to Qualifying Shareholders’ Open Offer Entitlements representing a percentage take up of 100 per cent. of the new Ordinary Shares available under the Open Offer. Accordingly, the aggregate amount raised pursuant to the Open Offer is approximately £4.4 million and the aggregate amount raised pursuant to the Firm Placing and Open Offer is approximately £29.4 million.
Application has been made for the 73,396,225 New Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the Firm Placing and Open Offer to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that Admission and dealings in the 73,396,225 New Ordinary Shares will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 19 October 2017.
Upon Admission, the Enlarged Share Capital is expected to comprise 324,009,401 Ordinary Shares with one voting right per share. The Company does not hold any shares in treasury. Therefore, this figure of 324,009,401 Ordinary Shares may be used by Shareholders following Admission 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 ITM Power under the FCA’s Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
