Corporate Update

GST continues to focus on the development and roll-out of its innovative GS Money solutions from the Group's GS20 Exchange and Angra Global businesses.

Following the Company's soft launch of its GS20 Exchange in November 2022, the soft launch has been successful and the development of the GS20 Exchange has progressed in accordance with GST's expectations, with a wider roll-out now being undertaken. There has been a progressive build-up of signed-up users, and the Company are greatly encouraged by the market traction the GS20 Exchange is enjoying. The GS20 Exchange is generating revenue for the Company via trading commissions at varying levels depending on the type and size of transaction undertaken.

Angra Global, which was created following the acquisition of PAYPT Finance Ltd, in Canada, in August 2023, and its merger with the Group's existing Angra business based in London, has been onboarding new customers and is trading in line with the Board's expectations. A proportion of the Placing proceeds will be utilised to progress Angra Global's cryptoasset wallet development and enhancements to its white label e-wallet solution.

Admission and Total Voting Rights

The Placing has been conducted utilising the Company's existing share authorities. The Placing Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing shares. The Placing is conditional, inter alia, on there being no breach of the obligations under the Placing Agreement entered into between CMC Markets and the Company prior to Admission, and admission of the Placing Shares to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange ("Admission") becoming effective. Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange and the Standard Segment of the FCA Official List. It is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings in the Placing Shares on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange will commence on or around 27 November 2023.

On Admission, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 1,915,222,277 Ordinary Shares, each with one voting right. There are 60,000,000 Ordinary Shares held in treasury. Therefore, the Company's total number of Ordinary Shares and voting rights will be 1,855,222,277 and this figure 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 to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
