Pentagon Protection (PPR) - Trading Update and Result of General Meeting RNS Number : 5955Q Pentagon Protection PLC 08 November 2012 RNS ANNOUNCEMENT 8 November 2012 Pentagon Protection plc ("Pentagon" or "the Group") Trading Update and Result of General Meeting Trading update Pentagon Protection plc (AIM: PPR) is pleased to report that its current order book is valued at more than £2,000,000 and that it has several near term orders with a high probability of closing worth nearly as much. The Group's mid to long term sales pipeline remains strong and is valued at more than £40,000,000. This pipeline includes several high value projects in the Middle East and Africa which the Group is pursuing in conjunction with its Middle Eastern office. General Meeting As previously announced, the Company has been awarded a number of new contracts over recent months, with an aggregate value of nearly £2.4 million. Whilst the Board believes that the Company's current cash position can adequately cover its working capital requirements to complete these contracts, the Directors have sought the flexibility to raise further equity as part of the financing mix to support the working capital requirement for future contract gains. Accordingly, at a General Meeting held on 6 November 2012, resolutions to give the Board this flexibility were duly passed. As a consequence, the directors now have the authority to allot Ordinary Shares up to a maximum nominal amount of £91,000, representing approximately 81.7 per cent of the existing ordinary shares in issue, for the period expiring at the conclusion of next year's AGM. These shares can be issued either on a pre-emptive basis or on a non-pre-emptive basis.
