About Aquis Exchange PLC

Aquis Exchange PLC is an exchange services group, which operates pan-European
cash equities trading businesses (Aquis Exchange), growth and regulated
primary markets (Aquis Stock Exchange/AQSE) and develops/licenses exchange
software to third parties (Aquis Technologies).

Aquis Exchange is authorised and regulated by the UK Financial Conduct
Authority and France's Autorité des Marchés Financiers to operate
Multilateral Trading Facility businesses in the UK/Switzerland and in EU27
respectively. Aquis operates lit order books and does not allow aggressive
non-client proprietary trading, which has resulted in lower market impact and
signalling risk on Aquis than other trading venues in Europe. According to
independent studies, trades on Aquis are less likely to lead to price movement
than on other lit markets. Aquis uses a subscription pricing model which works
by charging users according to the message traffic they generate, rather than
a percentage of the value of each stock that they trade.

Aquis Stock Exchange (AQSE) is a stock market providing primary and secondary
markets for equity and debt products. It is authorised as a Recognised
Investment Exchange, which allows it to operate a regulated listings venue.
The AQSE Growth Market is divided into two segments 'Access' and 'Apex', with
different levels of admission criteria. The Access market focuses on earlier
stage growth companies, while Apex is the intended market for larger, more
established businesses.

Aquis Technologies is the software and technology division of Aquis Exchange
PLC. It creates and licenses cutting-edge, cost-effective matching engine and
trade surveillance technology for banks, brokers, investment firms and
