19 February 2021

Provexis plc

('Provexis' or the 'Company')


Placing of new ordinary shares to raise £50,000


Provexis, the business that develops, licenses and sells the proprietary, scientifically-proven Fruitflow® heart-health functional food ingredient, is pleased to announce it has raised a gross £50,000 via a placing (the 'Placing'), conditional on admission to trading on AIM, of 6,666,667 new ordinary shares of 0.1p each (the 'New Provexis Shares').


The New Provexis Shares will be issued at a price of 0.75p per share (the 'Placing Price'), and rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares of 0.1p each in Provexis. No commissions or expenses will be payable on the issue of the New Provexis Shares.


The Placing Price represents a discount of 7.4 per cent. to the closing mid-market price per Ordinary Share on 18 February 2021, being the latest practicable date prior to this announcement.


Director participation in the Placing

A director intends to participate in the Placing for, in aggregate, 1,666,667 New Provexis Shares representing £12,500 at the Placing Price. This intention is not legally binding and the subscription by a director will be announced in a separate announcement. The contents of this announcement assume that the subscription by the director proceeds in full.


A further announcement is expected to be made shortly.


Ian Ford, CEO of Provexis, commented:

'The Board is pleased to announce this £50,000 placing.


In December 2020 the Company conducted a £1.0 million placing, and the £1.05 million funds raised from the December placing and the further placing announced today will be used to provide the Company with additional working capital over the coming year to support its international growth plans; a new production run for the Company's Fruitflow+ Omega-3 dietary supplement product is in the process of being commissioned.


The two placings conducted in December 2020 and February 2021 have significantly strengthened the Company's capital base and de-risked the business, to the benefit of all shareholders, and the Board wishes to thank the new and existing investors who took part in the placings for their strong support.'



This Announcement contains inside information for the purposes of the UK Market Abuse Regulation ("MAR"). In addition, market soundings (as defined in MAR) were taken in connection with the Placing as a result of which certain persons became aware of inside information (as defined in MAR), as permitted by MAR. This inside information is set out in this Announcement. Therefore, those persons that received such inside information in a market sounding are no longer in possession of such inside information relating to the Company and its securities.

Notes for editors


About Provexis plc

AIM-listed Provexis is focused on the development, licensing and sales of its proprietary, scientifically-proven Fruitflow® heart-health functional food ingredient.


Fruitflow is a natural, breakthrough ingredient that helps with platelet aggregation. This helps promote normal blood flow and circulation, which in turn benefits cardiovascular health. Fruitflow helps the platelets to circulate freely and smoothly throughout your blood, without sticking to one another or to the blood vessels themselves. Freely flowing blood helps reduce stress on your cardiovascular system.


Fruitflow is a highly concentrated form of bioactives which is lycopene-free and contains over 30 known anti-platelet compounds. Published clinical studies have shown that Fruitflow works to maintain healthy blood flow in a similar way to 75mg aspirin but with a milder and reversible action; Fruitflow has a similar antiplatelet effect to a single dose of aspirin - but when taken daily, it has none of aspirin's side effects.


The science behind Fruitflow has been validated by leading peer review publications and regulatory authorities. Fruitflow is the only natural antiplatelet to have a health claim approved by the European Food Safety Authority, stating that 150mg of Fruitflow 'helps maintain normal platelet aggregation, which contributes to healthy blood flow'.


Provexis plc entered into a long-term Alliance Agreement with DSM Nutritional Products in 2010 to commercialise Fruitflow through sales as an ingredient to brand owners in the food, beverage and dietary supplement categories. More than 90 regional consumer healthcare brands have now been launched by direct customers of DSM, and a number of further regional brands have been launched through DSM's distributor channels.


Fruitflow has a number of other specific health benefits which have been reflected in separate patent filings for the use of Fruitflow in:


· mitigating exercise-induced inflammation;

· managing blood pressure; and

· protecting against the adverse effects of air pollution on the body's cardiovascular system. Laboratory work has shown that Fruitflow can reduce the platelet activation caused by airborne particulate matter, such as that from diesel emissions, by approximately one third.


Provexis sells a high quality dietary supplement product containing Fruitflow and Omega-3 from its separate website on a mail order basis. The product is also available to purchase from and from Holland & Barrett.


The Company is working closely with By-Health Co., Ltd, a £4bn listed Chinese dietary supplement business, to support the planned launch of some Fruitflow based products in the Chinese market. The planned launch is progressing well with potential sales volumes remaining at a significant multiple of existing Fruitflow sales.


By-Health has made a significant investment in nine separate clinical studies in China, at its sole expense, in support of the Fruitflow based products which it plans to launch in China. The five studies which have been completed by By-Health showed excellent results in use for Fruitflow, and provide strong evidence for By-Health in its regulatory submissions for Fruitflow.


If a successful blue cap health claim is achieved for Fruitflow in China it would currently be expected to result in some significant recurring orders for Fruitflow, at a multiple of current total sales values.


In November 2020 the Company announced it had entered into a distribution agreement with a company which will act as the distributor for Fruitflow+ Omega-3 in China, exclusively through the Chinese Cross-Border e-commerce ('CBEC') channel. The distribution agreement is separate but wholly complementary to the Company's work with By-Health, with the CBEC regulations enabling the distributor to sell Fruitflow+ Omega-3 in China now, prior to the blue cap health claim which By-Health is seeking to secure.



The Company and DSM have experienced increased consumer interest for Fruitflow in recent months, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, as consumers look to nutritional interventions to help them fortify the circulatory system against the effects of COVID-19. The Company and DSM will look to maximise the commercial opportunities arising from this increased consumer interest in Fruitflow, and will further promote the core blood circulatory and anti-inflammatory benefits of the product.


In September 2020 Fruitflow was recognised in a review article by the Frontiers in Nutrition journal which stated that nutraceuticals such as Fruitflow may serve as:


'A safe antiplatelet prophylactic treatment for those at high risk of COVID-19 who may also be at increased risk of thrombotic complications and an alternative to pharmacological compounds that may cause greater risk of bleeding.'


Provexis was founded in 1999 and is headquartered in Reading, Berkshire.


Provexis shares are traded on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol PXS.
