ANGLE plc (AIM:AGL OTCQX:ANPCY), a world-leading liquid biopsy company, is pleased to announce that, further to the announcement made yesterday, the Company has successfully raised gross proceeds of GBP20.0 million by conditionally placing 17,241,380 Placing Shares at a price of 116 pence per New Ordinary Share with new and existing investors.

The Issue Price represents a discount of approximately 6.83 per cent. to the closing mid-market price of an Ordinary Share of 124.50 pence on 23 June 2021. The Placing Shares represent approximately 7.40 per cent. of the Company's Enlarged Issued Share Capital.

ANGLE Founder and Chief Executive, Andrew Newland, commented:

"We would like to thank our shareholders for their continued strong support and welcome new shareholders to the ANGLE register. The proceeds from this Placing will enable ANGLE to add to the current momentum in the commercialisation process of our Parsortix system and open up new market opportunities in Prostate Cancer diagnosis, an area of significant medical need. ANGLE looks forward to announcing further progress on multiple fronts in H2 CY21, including the prospect of FDA clearance for the Parsortix platform."

Admission

The Placing is conditional, inter alia, upon the Admission becoming effective. Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the 17,241,380 New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission") and, subject to the Placing Agreement not having been terminated in accordance with its terms, it is expected that Admission will become effective and trading will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 1 July 2021.

On Admission, the total number of Ordinary Shares in issue will be 233,109,225 and the total number of voting rights will therefore be 233,109,225. This figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Capitalised terms not otherwise defined in this announcement shall have the same meaning ascribed to such terms in the announcement released yesterday under RNS number 0748D unless the context requires otherwise.
