The issued new Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing Ordinary Shares.

Following Admission, the issued ordinary share capital of Vast will consist of 4,663,404,459 Ordinary Shares. There are no Ordinary Shares held in treasury. 4,663,404,459 represents the total number of voting rights in the Company and may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they can determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
