Under the Sale and Purchase Agreement between the Company and the shareholders of Attis ("SPA") 952,197,460 Ordinary Shares are to be issued to the shareholders of Attis ("Consideration Shares"). 777,589,716 of the Consideration Shares issued under the acquisition of Attis, representing 81.7% of the Consideration Shares, are subject to a lock-in until 31 December 2019.  The Consideration Shares will be issued and allotted with admission expected at the same time as the Placing Shares as further set out below.


The Attis shareholder group has also participated in the Placing to the extent of a £165,000 cash subscription.    Following the completion of the Placing and Acquisition of Attis, the Attis shareholder group will hold a 28.31% interest in Mayan.    


17,857,142 Ordinary Shares will also be issued to a third party consultant at the Placing Price for introduction of the transaction ("Settlement Shares").

10,400,325 Ordinary Shares will be issued at the Placing Price in relation to the settlement of accrued Director fees to the Company's Chairman, Paolo Amoruso, for time spent over his monthly rate of £2,000 per calendar month basic rate ("the Settlement Shares").  Following the issue of the Settlement Shares, Mr Amoruso will hold 2.53% of Mayan.

In connection with the Placing, Mayan has issued 37,500,000 broker warrants to subscribe for new shares in Mayan, and these are exercisable at the Placing Price within three years from admission of the Placing Shares.
