Notes:

- Votes 'withheld' are not counted in the calculation of the proportion of votes 'for' or 'against' a resolution.

- The total number of Ordinary Shares in issue as at the record time for the General Meeting was 524,108,283

Admission of Subscription Shares

Applications have been made to the Financial Conduct Authority (the “FCA”) and the London Stock Exchange plc, respectively, for the admission of the 36,363,636 subscription shares (the “Subscription Shares”) to the standard segment of the official list of the FCA and to trading on the main market of London Stock Exchange plc ("Admission").

It is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings in the Subscription Shares will commence at 8:00 a.m. on 22 May 2019. The Subscription Shares will, on Admission, rank pari passu with the ordinary shares of no par value each in the capital of the Company (the “Ordinary Shares”).

Total Voting Rights

Following Admission, the enlarged issued share capital will comprise 560,471,919 Ordinary Shares, with voting rights. This figure may be used by OKYO shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interests in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury.
