The Convertible Notes were capable of conversion into new ordinary shares of 10 pence each in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") at any time after 31 December 2016 and prior to 31 January 2017 at the lower of 115p and the closing mid-market price of an Ordinary Share on 31 December 2016.

As such, 2,089,816 new Ordinary Shares will be issued at a conversion price of 115p to Stadium Parkgate (Holdings) Limited (the "Conversion Shares").

Application will be made for the admission of the Conversion Shares to trading on AIM ("Admission") and it is expected that Admission will take place and that trading will commence on AIM at 8.00 a.m. on 2 February 2017.

Following Admission, the Company will have 207,362,523 ordinary shares in issue. BNN holds no ordinary shares in treasury. This figure of 207,362,523 should therefore 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 and Transparency Rules.
