Result of General Meeting
07 March 2022
Omega (AIM: ODX), the specialist medical diagnostics company focused on industry-leading Health & Nutrition and Global Health (CD4 and COVID-19) products, announces that at the General Meeting held earlier today, resolution 1 (an ordinary resolution) passed, but resolution 2 (a special resolution) was not passed.
As a result, the Placing, Subscription and Open Offer will not take place. The Group is therefore not funded to pursue its growth strategy as set out in the Circular. The Directors will now need to reassess the strategy, reflecting on alternative options for funding for the Company and will update the market in due course.
A breakdown of the voting results for each resolution is provided on the Company’s website here:
Jag Grewal, Chief Executive Officer, of Omega Diagnostics said: “The Board is encouraged that resolution 1, increasing the Directors’ authority to allot shares, was approved by shareholders and notes the views of some retail shareholders with regards to resolution 2 and their pre-emption rights. Accordingly, the fundraise will not proceed and the Company will look at other strategic and funding options.”
Capitalised terms not otherwise defined in the text of this announcement have the meanings given to them in the Company's circular dated 11 February 2022.
