AJL acquired an additional 1,699,983 Common Shares pursuant to the Compulsory Acquisition representing, on a non-diluted basis, approximately 2.1% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares, at a price of £1.00 (or its equivalent in Canadian or U.S. dollars) in cash per Common Share for an aggregate price of £1,699,983, or approximately C$2,904,421. Such Canadian values are calculated based on the Bank of Canada exchange rate of £1.00 to C$1.7085 on January 2, 2020. As a result of the Compulsory Acquisition, AJL now owns 81,575,260 Common Shares representing 100% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares of the Company.  

Avesoro has applied to have the Common Shares delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") and the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange (the "AIM") in accordance with the policies of such exchanges.
