('Plutus', the 'Group' or the 'Company')

Proposed demerger of Plutus Energy Limited, placing to raise £600,000, debt capitalisation, capital reorganisation and Notice of General Meeting

The Board of Plutus (AIM: PPG) announces that it will today post to shareholders a circular convening a general meeting of the Company (the 'General Meeting') to consider certain proposals including the proposed Demerger of Plutus Energy Limited, a capital reorganisation, proposed debt capitalisation and a conditional placing to raise gross proceeds of £600,000 at 0.02 pence per share (the 'Placing Price').

The Proposals are conditional on, inter alia, approval by the Company's shareholders of certain resolutions to be proposed at a general meeting to be held on 3 November 2020 and confirmation of a Reduction of Capital by the High Court of Justice of England and Wales, with a Court Hearing to confirm the Reduction of Capital scheduled for 24 November 2020.

Extracts from the circular, providing background to and reasons for the Proposals, are copied at the end of this announcement.

Proposed demerger and AIM Rule status

This Company has today announced, inter alia,the proposed demerger of Plutus Energy Limited, which holds the Group's shares in Attune Energy Limited and a receivable totalling £656,856 in unpaid management fees owed to the Group.

The Demerger will constitute a fundamental change of business under Rule 15 of the AIM Rules and on completion of the Demerger the Company will cease to own, control or conduct all, or substantially all, of its existing trading business activities or assets. The Company's remaining assets following the Demerger, being the Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio, are effectively being held as assets for sale and do not generate revenue for the Group. The Company will therefore be classified as a Rule 15 Cash Shell on Completion and as such will be required to make an acquisition or acquisitions which constitute a reverse takeover under AIM Rule 14 (or seek re-admission as an investing company (as defined under the AIM Rules)) on or before the date falling six months from completion of the Demerger failing which the Company's Ordinary Shares would then be suspended from trading on AIM pursuant to AIM Rule 40. Admission to trading on AIM would be cancelled six months from the date of the suspension should the reason for the suspension not have been rectified.

The objective of the Demerger is to create value for Existing Shareholders through developing its existing energy assets in a private vehicle, and provide a continued investment in a Rule 15 Cash Shell seeking to deploy the Company's cash resources following completion of the Proposals towards the acquisition of an operating business (or operating assets) with such an acquisition constituting a reverse takeover under Rule 14 of the AIM Rules.

Placing

The Company has conditionally raised £600,000 (before commissions and expenses) through the proposed issue of the 3,000,000,000 Placing Shares at the Placing Price. The Placing Shares will represent approximately 57.0% of the Enlarged Share Capital. The Placing has been arranged by Turner Pope as the Company's joint broker. Pello Capital are acting as sub-placing agent to Turner Pope.

The Placing is conditional upon, inter alia:(i) the Resolutions being passed at the General Meeting; (ii) the Reduction of Capital being confirmed by the Court and the relevant court order being delivered to the Registrar of Companies; (iii) the Demerger becoming effective; and (iv) Admission.

Use of proceeds

The net proceeds of the Placing, estimated to be £490,000, will be used by the Company to enable the settlement of trade and other creditors, including fees owed to directors, totalling approximately £275,000 and for general working capital purposes whilst it seeks a suitable reverse takeover candidate.

Following completion of the Proposals and settlement in full of outstanding creditors the Group is expected to have available cash resources of approximately £215,000 to deploy towards evaluating suitable reverse takeover candidates and for general working capital purposes.

Debt capitalisation

Conditional on Admission, certain of the Directors, trade creditors and advisers have agreed to capitalise certain amounts that are either owed or contractually due to be settled in the next 12 months totalling £266,094. The debts will be satisfied through the issue by the Company of 1,390,470,000 new Ordinary Shares at the Placing Price.

Posting of Circular and Notice of General Meeting

The Circular including the notice convening the General Meeting to be held at the offices of MSP Secretaries Limited, Eastcastle House, 27/28 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8DH at 11:00 a.m. on 3 November 2020 will be posted to Shareholders later today. A copy of the Circular will be shortly made available on the Company's website at www.plutuspowergenplc.com.

Recommendation

The Board unanimously recommend that Shareholders vote in favour of the Resolutions.

Plutus does not currently generate revenue and is in a highly constrained working capital position at the present time. It is likely that, if Shareholder approval for the Proposals at the General Meeting is not received, this would ultimately lead to the Company entering into administration or some other form of insolvency procedure, assuming that alternative funding would not be available in the immediate term. Accordingly, it is very important that Shareholders vote in favour of the Resolutions at the General Meeting.

The Board intend to vote in favour of each of the Resolutions in respect of their direct and indirect shareholdings which in aggregate amount to 171,333,334 Ordinary Shares representing 19.64% of the Issued Share Capital.

Defined terms used in this announcement shall have the same meaning as set out in the Definitions section of the Circular copied below unless otherwise defined herein.

The following information is extracted without material adjustment from the Circular being sent to Shareholders today. The information below should be read in conjunction with the Circular. Capitalised terms used in the summary below are defined at the end of this announcement.

Dear Shareholder,

Proposed demerger of Plutus Energy Limited, proposed capital reorganisation,
proposed placing to raise £600,000, proposed debt capitalisation

and

Notice of General Meeting

1. Introduction

This Circular sets out the proposals for: (i) the proposed demerger of Plutus Energy Limited, which holds the Group's shares in Attune Energy Limited and a receivable totalling £656,856 in unpaid management fees owed to the Group; (ii) the proposed capital reorganisation; (iii) the proposed placing to raise £600,000 (before expenses) and; (iv) the proposed Debt Capitalisation.

Subject to the passing of the Resolutions at the General Meeting being convened for 3 November 2020 and on completion of the Demerger, the Company will continue to hold its interests in the Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio. The Company intends to seek to demerge the Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio to Plutus Energy Limited at a future date once the relevant consents from Rockpool are received.

The Demerger will constitute a fundamental change of business under Rule 15 of the AIM Rules and on completion of the Demerger the Company will cease to own, control or conduct all, or substantially all, of its existing trading business activities or assets. The Company's remaining assets following the Demerger, being the Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio, are effectively being held as assets for sale and do not generate revenue for the Group. The Company will therefore be classified as a Rule 15 Cash Shell on Completion and as such will be required to make an acquisition or acquisitions which constitute a reverse takeover under AIM Rule 14 (or seek re-admission as an investing company (as defined under the AIM Rules)) on or before the date falling six months from completion of the Demerger failing which the Company's Ordinary Shares would then be suspended from trading on AIM pursuant to AIM Rule 40. Admission to trading on AIM would be cancelled six months from the date of the suspension should the reason for the suspension not have been rectified.

The objective of the Demerger is to create value for Existing Shareholders through developing its existing energy assets in a private vehicle, and provide a continued investment in a Rule 15 Cash Shell seeking to deploy the Company's cash resources following completion of the Proposals towards the acquisition of an operating business (or operating assets) with such an acquisition constituting a reverse takeover under Rule 14 of the AIM Rules.

The net proceeds of the Placing, estimated to be £490,000, will be used by the Company to enable the settlement of trade and other creditors, including certain fees owed to directors, totalling approximately £275,000 and for general working capital purposes whilst it seeks a suitable reverse takeover candidate.

Following completion of the Proposals and settlement in full of outstanding creditors the Group is expected to have available cash resources of approximately £215,000 to deploy towards evaluating suitable reverse takeover candidates and for general working capital purposes.

The purpose of this Circular is to provide you with the background to the Proposals and to explain why the Directors consider the Proposals to be in the best interests of the Company and its Shareholders as a whole and why they recommend that Shareholders should vote in favour of the Resolutions to be proposed at the General Meeting, as they intend to do in respect of their own shareholdings.

A notice convening a General Meeting, to be held at 11.00 a.m. on 3 November 2020, at the offices of MSP Secretaries Limited, Eastcastle House, 27/28 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8DH to consider the Resolutions, is set out at the end of this Circular.

Plutus is not presently revenue generating and is in a highly constrained working capital position at the present time. It is likely that if Shareholder approval for the Proposals at the General Meeting is not received this would ultimately lead to the Company entering into administration or some other form of insolvency procedure, assuming that alternative funding would not be available in the immediate term. Accordingly, it is very important that Shareholders vote in favour of the Resolutions at the General Meeting.

2. Background to the Proposals

In the Company's final results for the year ended 30 April 2019, released on 31 October 2019, and subsequent announcements the Company has highlighted the causes for the difficult trading conditions with many external factors largely adversely affecting the Group's business.

These were as follows:

(1) In 2014, Capacity Mechanism was introduced which was a new market and not one the Group had planned for when it initially decided to enter the FlexGen market, where the Company is able to compete in the annual capacity auction to receive 15-year contracts for the construction of new generation capacity. In its first two years, this auction cleared at an average of circa £20,000 per MW for our sites for payment commencing four years from award. These payments were index-linked from award. The Group had been successful in securing some valuable CM contracts for our six FlexGen sites at an average of around £20,000 per MW per annum. This was widely welcomed by the industry to encourage the investment required therein.

(2) In October 2015, the UK Government announced at a Public Bill Committee, which outlined amendments to the Enterprise Investment Scheme ('EIS'), funding to exclude activities that involved the provision of reserve power capacity and generation, for example under a Capacity Market agreement or Short Term Operating Reserve contract. The UK Government noted that such activities are generally asset-backed and benefit from a guaranteed income stream and mainstream financing, which removes the need for tax-advantaged investment. This change would apply to investments made on or after 30 November 2015. Therefore, the Company was faced with no longer being able to secure EIS backed investment.

(3) In March 2016, the UK Government consulted on reforms to the Capacity Market including a set of questions on a proposal to avoid over-compensation in connection with certain risk finance schemes, i.e. EIS schemes from which the nine Plutus' co-owned companies benefitted. To ensure the amount of aid under the CM was limited to the minimum needed and that there was no cumulation or over-compensation, the total amount of aid (i.e. the total aid received under the risk finance schemes e.g. EIS and the total aid received under the CM) was deemed that it should not exceed the amount awarded in the CM auction. Therefore, the amount of EIS relief granted to investors would need to be offset against the co-investee company's CM receipts.

(4) In April 2016, the Group responded to a Department of Environment and Climate Change ('DECC') consultation on reforms to the Capacity Market, in which it confirmed that The Office of Gas and Electricity Markets ('Ofgem') had been asked to review network charging rules and their impact on embedded generation. DECC suggested that current charging arrangements could be providing undue reward to distribution-connected generators. The regulator was scheduled to report back with a proposed way forward. Separately, National Grid was undertaking its own review into embedded benefits, and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs ('Defra') was reviewing emissions as part of the UK's adoption of the Medium Combustion Plant Directive ('MCPD').

(5) In March 2017, Ofgem published a 'minded to' decision, which it subsequently confirmed. From the winter of 2020/21, this reduced the embedded benefits received by distribution connected generators such as Plutus PowerGen to the residual charge. Consequently, the 2017 TRIAD 'season' (from 1 November to 28 February each year) was the last 100 per cent. TRIAD and this fell to 66 per cent. in winter 2018 and 33 per cent. in winter 2019. This ultimately largely destroyed the Group's primary revenue stream and made it barely worthwhile to run except in exceptional circumstances.

(6) The outcome of DEFRA's consultation on lower emissions limits was delayed by the June 2017 general election until the third quarter of that year, where we were able to comply with the proposed new rules from cash generated from operations and loans received. The outcome in relation to the transposition into UK law of the MCPD required us to fit selective catalytic reduction ('SCR') or other measures to reduce the Nitrogen Oxide ('NOx') from the Group's FlexGen portfolio.

(7) On 15 November 2018, the General Court of the European Union issued a judgment on Case 793/14 Tempus Energy Ltd and Tempus Energy Technology V Commission, funded by Greenpeace, annulling the Commission's original State aid decision to approve a capacity mechanism scheme for Great Britain. The General Court ruled that the Commission should have initiated the formal investigation procedure before adopting a decision. This judgement rendered aid granted through the scheme unlawful. As a result, the UK Government decided to suspend the capacity market, meaning that it would not grant new associated subsidies until it was decided if they were compliant with EU law. However, in December 2018, the UK Government confirmed that it would operate the capacity market as normal, but without payments being made to agreement holders. The UK Government also confirmed that it intended to hold a replacement T-1 auction for the delivery year 2019/2020, which would be held by rearranging the postponed T-1 auction that had been scheduled for January 2019. In the meantime, the Commission lodged an appeal against the General Court's judgment before the Court of Justice on 25 January 2019. It also initiated the formal investigation on 21 February 2019 in order to adopt a new decision. BEIS said, 'We will robustly defend this challenge. We continue to believe in the Capacity Market as a mechanism for guaranteeing security of supply...We welcomed the Commission appealing the Court's judgment - an appeal in which the UK is intervening to support the Commission.' The date for the hearing was arranged for 12-15 November 2019. The Capacity Market was successfully re-introduced and the income therefrom will be applied to servicing the substantial debts incurred by the co-investee companies in building the sites and, where necessary, complying with government directives.

(8) On 22 July 2019, BEIS announced a consultation on Proposals for Capacity Market emissions limits in order to implement the Clean Energy Package provisions in respect of limits on carbon dioxide emissions from refurbishing and existing generation (likely to be coal, diesel and inefficient gas) to ensure any such generating capacity that does not meet the emissions limits shall not, from 1 July 2025, receive any capacity payments. This cost all the co-investee companies considerable sums to comply with the aforesaid provisions (in the region of £300,000 to £500,000 for each site). The co-investee companies have been largely unable to pay down debt at the expense of these additional costs.

Taking all of these items above into account, just about every major revenue stream of Plutus's investee companies has been adversely affected.

In August 2019, Plutus was given notice from the non-executive directors of Rockpool that its management contracts were to be terminated in eight out of the nine companies with six months' notice since the co-owned companies needed to reduce costs further than the already reduced fees Plutus was receiving as agreed under the letters of variation with them. The Company has accrued the fees owed to it totalling £656,856 to the date of termination due under the notice period and the letters of variation. This receivable for unpaid management fees is held in Plutus Energy and upon completion of the Demerger will no longer be held within the Group.

Furthermore, in October 2019 Mr Lazarevic left the Company in breach of his contract and the Company is intending to commence legal proceedings against Mr Lazarevic with regards to his breach of contract. As part of the Demerger, the Group has assigned the rights to claim against Mr Lazarevic to Plutus Energy.

Following the departure of Paul Lazarevic the Company was potentially in breach of their management contracts with Rockpool due to the Company not having the necessary competent personnel to carry out the obligations stipulated in these management contracts. Under the management contracts the Company had a 60-day period to remedy this breach. The Directors were unable to remedy this breach despite proposing third party contractors to run the sites. These contractors withdrew their offer due to the short-term nature of the contracts.

The Company's management contract with Attune Energy was also terminated on a three month notice period as the Company was unable to manage this standby diesel generation site due to not having the requisite in-house operational expertise and not being able to secure appropriate sub-contractors to manage the site as described above. Plutus do not anticipate accruing any further management fees on its FlexGen sites or its management contract with Attune Energy.

Due to the foregoing circumstances, the Company's cash resources are very limited and the working capital position of the Group is highly constrained. On 31 October 2019 the Company implemented a cost control strategy to minimise cash burn and in Q1 2020 certain Directors provided loans to the Company totalling £75,000 to enable the Company to meet its short-term working capital requirements. As announced on 1 April 2020, the provision of further loans under this facility was suspended and the Company is currently dependent on the ongoing cooperation and support of its creditors to manage its working capital position.

The FlexGen assets were also put up for sale which was being handled by Rockpool, advised by Jones Lang LaSalle. However, this process has failed to attract a buyer at the required price, and the FlexGen assets continue to be managed by the directors of the respective co-investee companies and are in receipt of CM payments where due.

The Company is therefore in a position where it is currently unable to realise it investments in its co-investee companies nor generate any revenue from them. The Directors have explored the options for the Company in the best interests of Shareholders as they believe that, given the relatively small size and the nature of its business and the overheads incurred by the Company to maintain a quotation for its shares on AIM, the Company is no longer benefitting in its current form from its Ordinary Shares being admitted to trading on AIM. One option the Board has considered is to propose to cancel its admission to trading on AIM, but this would result in there being no ready market in its Ordinary Shares. The Board also considered a solvent liquidation but concluded that the obligations of the Company and the winding up costs would not result in any significant return of value to Shareholders. The Board has also considered a Company Voluntary Arrangement ('CVA') but decided that this would not work due to the sums required to maintain a quote on AIM together with the costs of servicing and maintaining a CVA.

Alternatively, and as proposed in this Document, the Board has resolved to dispose of Plutus Energy Limited, the Company's wholly owned trading subsidiary which holds the Group's shares in Attune Energy and a receivable totalling £656,856 in unpaid management fees owed to the Group. In conjunction with the Demerger, the Company is raising £600,000 (before expenses) through the Placing to enable full settlement of outstanding creditors and provide the Company with sufficient working capital as a Rule 15 Cash Shell.

The Company is also seeking to, following completion of the Proposals, demerge the Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio once the relevant consents have been granted by Rockpool. At the present time the Board of Plutus believe that Rockpool are unnecessarily withholding consent. The demerger of the Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio will be subject to approval by shareholders at a later date however there can be no guarantee at this stage that consent will be received from Rockpool and that the Company will be in a position to implement the demerger of the Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio. Nor can there be any guarantee as to the timing or the terms of any consent being received from Rockpool.

Having considered these alternatives at length, in consultation with its advisers, the Board has concluded that the best available option is the Proposals set out in this Document, which include the Demerger and the Placing.

Following the passing of the Resolutions and with effect from Completion, the Company will become a Rule 15 Cash Shell (as defined in the AIM Rules) with cash resources of approximately £215,000 and no borrowings.

Following the Demerger, the Directors consider that there is an opportunity for Shareholders to realise value through the Company completing a reverse takeover of another business. The Directors will use their knowledge and experience to seek to identify a suitable reverse takeover target. There can be no guarantee that they will be able to identify or successfully acquire a suitable reverse takeover target during the period that the Company is a Rule 15 Cash Shell or thereafter.

3. Further information on the Company

The Latest Accounts show that, for the six months to 31 October 2019 and based on unaudited figures, the Group's consolidated total revenue and operating profit amounted to £567,744 and £115,838 respectively. The Group's cash and cash equivalents at 31 October 2019 stood at £Nil (31 October 2018: £62,833).

Moreover, based on unaudited figures, the Group's total revenue for financial year end 30 April 2020 amounted to £230,244 (2019: £1,275,000) with a profit before tax of £30,099 (2019: loss before tax of £1,650,701). The profit before tax figure includes a gain of approximately £570,000 in connection with share-based payments. As at 30 April 2020 the Group's consolidated cash and cash equivalents stood at £2,413 (2019: £45,177). These numbers are unaudited figures and remain subject to audit adjustments.

The substantial reduction in revenue in the year ended 30 April 2020 reflects the loss of the management contracts in the period under review and the Company ceasing to receive management fees from its FlexGen sites and Attune Energy management contract with effect from November 2019. As previously announced the Company currently has negligible cash resources and has been reliant in recent months on the continued co-operation and support of its creditors.

4. Update on the Company's 2020 Annual Report and Accounts

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company will be unable to post its 2020 Annual Report and Accounts to shareholders by 31 October 2020 deadline pursuant to Rule 19 of the AIM Rules.

Further to the guidance provided by AIM Regulation in 'Inside AIM' on 26 March 2020, the Company requested an additional period of up to three months to publish its 2020 Annual Report. AIM Regulation has granted the extension and therefore the Company will publish its 2020 Annual Report by no later than 31 January 2021. The Company has also applied for and been granted an extension by Companies House to delay the filing of its 2020 Annual Report and Accounts until 30 April 2021.

Further updates will be given in due course as to the timing of the publication of the 2020 Annual Report and Accounts.

5. Details on the Demerger
Structure of the Demerger

The Demerger represents a fundamental change of business under Rule 15 of the AIM Rules and therefore requires the approval of Existing Shareholders at the General Meeting described below. Completion of the Demerger will result in the Company becoming a Rule 15 Cash Shell.

The Demerger will allow this to happen. The Demerger will be affected by taking the following steps:

· the subdivision of every Ordinary Share into one New Ordinary Share and nine Deferred Shares;

· Plutus Energy Shares will be issued to the Company;

· a bonus issue of Plutus B Ordinary Shares to Shareholders on a one for one basis; and

· following a reduction in Plutus' share capital (in accordance with the Act) Shareholders who are on the share register on the Demerger Record Date will receive:

One Plutus Energy Share for each Plutus B Ordinary Share

Following the Demerger each holder of 1 Ordinary Share will hold:

· 1 ordinary share in Plutus Energy - this will own the shares in Attune Energy and a receivable of c. £655,000 in unpaid management fees from Rockpool; and

· 1 New Ordinary Share in the Company - this will be a Rule 15 Cash Shell and will continue to hold the Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio.

The Demerger is conditional, inter alia, on:

· the approval of Shareholders of the Resolutions at the General Meeting to be held on 3 November 2020; and

· the confirmation of the Reduction of Capital by the Court.

The Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio is co-owned with Rockpool and requires their consent for the Company to transfer these interests to Plutus Energy. The Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio is valued at £152 in the books of the Company and, subject to obtaining the consent of Rockpool, the Company will seek to transfer the Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio to Plutus Energy Limited at its book value. At this stage there can be no guarantee that such consent will be forthcoming from Rockpool nor as to the timing of such consent being received. The Company intends to seek approval from shareholders to implement the prospective, future demerger of the Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio.

6. Details of the Capital Reorganisation

The Placing Price is less than the nominal value of 0.1 pence per existing ordinary share. The Companies Act (as amended) prohibits the Company from issuing ordinary shares at a price below the nominal value. Accordingly, the Company will be seeking shareholder approval to carry out the Capital Reorganisation through which it is proposed that each existing ordinary share will be subdivided into one New Ordinary Share and nine Deferred Share. The Deferred Shares will have no rights and the Company will not issue any certificates or credit CREST accounts in respect of them. The Deferred Shares will not be admitted to trading on AIM.

The number of existing ordinary shares in issue, and held by each Shareholder, as a result of the passing of the Resolutions will not change. It is simply the nominal value of the existing ordinary shares which will change.

As at close of business on 8 October 2020, being the latest practicable date prior to the publication of the circular there were 872,534,994 existing Ordinary Shares in issue. Immediately following the Capital Reorganisation, the Reduction of Capital and the Admission of the Placing Shares and Debt Capitalisation Shares, it is expected that there will be 5,263,004,994 New Ordinary Shares in issue.

7. Bonus Issue

There will be a bonus issue out of the Share Premium Account of Plutus B Ordinary Shares on the basis of one Plutus B Ordinary Share for every one Ordinary Share held by a Shareholder on the register of members on the Demerger Record Date.

The Bonus Issue is being effected so that the Plutus Energy Shares may be transferred to Shareholders as a repayment of capital.

The aggregate nominal value of all the Plutus B Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the Bonus Issue will be up to £872,534.99 being equal to or greater than the approximate market capitalisation of the Company which represents the value of Plutus Energy, as at the close of business on 8 October 2020, being the latest practicable date prior to the date of this document.

A summary of the rights and restrictions attaching to the Plutus B Ordinary Shares is set out in Part III of this Document.

The Plutus B Ordinary Shares will then be cancelled pursuant to the Reduction of Capital and the capital thereon repaid to Shareholders by the transfer of the Plutus Energy Shares. The Plutus B Ordinary Shares will not be listed or admitted to trading on AIM or any other investment exchange or trading platform and cannot be held in CREST. No share certificates will be issued in respect of the Plutus B Ordinary Shares nor will any such shares exist after the Demerger, as explained below.

8. Proposed amendments to the Articles of Association

A number of amendments to the Articles of Association are required to implement the Proposals and require approval at the General Meeting. Such amendments include the insertion into the Articles of Association of the rights and restrictions attaching to the Plutus B Ordinary Shares.

9. Reduction of Capital

In order to effect the Demerger, the Company is proposing to cancel all of the Plutus B Ordinary Shares issued pursuant to the Bonus Issue by reducing the Company's share capital in accordance with the provisions of the Act. This will involve the cancellation of the Company's Share Premium Account.

The cancellation of the Share Premium Account will only take effect if sanctioned by the Shareholders at the General Meeting and confirmed by the Court and upon the appropriate documents being filed and registered with the Registrar of Companies.

The HearingDate is expected to be 24 November 2020 and the Reduction of Capital is expected to become effective between 25 November 2020 and 9 December 2020.

The Company has been advised that the Court may require the Company to give an undertaking or put in place another mechanism for the protection of the Company's existing creditors. If required, the Company will provide such undertakings to the Court for the protection of creditors as it is advised by counsel are appropriate to be given. Subject to the Company putting in place satisfactory provision for the protection of creditors, the Company has been advised that there are good prospects of the proposed cancellation of the Share Premium Account being confirmed by the Court.

It should be noted that, although it is currently the Company's intention that the Demerger should be concluded, the Company is entitled to decide not to proceed with the Demerger at any time prior to the Reduction of Capital becoming effective if it determines that it would not be in the best interests of Shareholders as a whole.

Following completion of the Proposals the Company will no longer hold any revenue generating assets and will be a Rule 15 Cash Shell with the risks associated therewith.

10. AIM Rule 15

In accordance with AIM Rule 15, the Demerger constitutes a fundamental change of business of the Company and the Demerger will be subject to shareholder approval at the General Meeting. The Demerger requires the approval of more than50 per cent. of the Ordinary Shares voted at the General Meeting.

On Completion, the Company would continue to hold the Plutus Energy Investment Portfolio which it intends to dispose of in due course once the relevant consents have been received. As such on Completion, the Company will become a Rule 15 Cash Shell and as such will be required to make an acquisition or acquisitions which constitutes a reverse takeover under AIM Rule 14 on or before the date falling six months from Completion or be re-admitted to trading on AIM as an investing company under the AIM Rules (which requires the raising of at least £6 million) failing which, the Company's Ordinary Shares would then be suspended from trading on AIM pursuant to AIM Rule 40. Admission to trading on AIM would be cancelled six months from the date of suspension should the suspension not have been lifted.

As a Rule 15 Cash Shell, the Company will have no operating cash flow and will be dependent on the net proceeds of the Placing for its working capital requirements.

In seeking and considering potential acquisitions the Board of Directors intend to identify opportunities offering the potential to deliver value creation and returns to shareholders over the medium to long-term. The Company will consider investment opportunities in any sectors as they arise.

11. Use of proceeds

The net proceeds of the Placing, estimated to be £490,000, will be used by the Company to enable the settlement of trade and other creditors, including fees owed to directors, totalling approximately £275,000 and for general working capital purposes whilst it seeks a suitable reverse takeover candidate.

12. Details of the Placing

The Company has conditionallyraised £600,000 (before commissions and expenses) through the proposed issue of the 3,000,000,000 Placing Shares at the Placing Price. The Placing Price represents a discount of approximately 71.4 per cent. to the middle market closing price of 0.07 pence per existing Ordinary Share on 8 October 2020, being the last practicable date prior to the publication of the Circular. The Placing Shares will represent approximately 57.0 per cent. of the Enlarged Share Capital.

The Placing is conditional upon, inter alia: (i) the Resolutions being passed at the General Meeting; (ii) the Reduction of Capital being confirmed by the Court and the relevant court order being delivered to the Registrar of Companies; (iii) the Demerger becoming effective; and (iv) Admission.

13. Debt Capitalisation

Conditional on Admission, certain of the Directors, trade creditors and advisers have agreed to capitalise certain amounts that are either owed or contractually due to be settled in the next 12 months totalling £266,094.

As part of the Debt Capitalisation Charles Tatnall (Executive Chairman) and James Longley (Interim Chief Executive Officer and Finance Director) are capitalising a total of £75,000 in loans that were made to the Company pursuant to the loan agreement announced on 22 January 2020 and a total £48,000 of fees owed pursuant to the directors' existing service contracts.

In connection with the Placing and conditional on the Proposals being approved by Shareholders and upon approval of the Resolutions, the Company has agreed to enter into a warrant instrument pursuant to which it will issue 600,000,000 Broker Warrants to JIM Nominees Limited (as nominee for Turner Pope) as is equivalent to 20 per cent. of the gross aggregate value of the funds sourced by Turner Pope from investors in the Placing divided by the Placing Price. 300,000,000 Broker Warrants will be transferred to Pello Capital immediately following completion in connection with their role in the Placing as sub-placing agent to Turner Pope.

The Broker Warrants may be exercised at any time between Admission and up to three years after Admission and will entitle the warrantholder to acquire one New Ordinary Share for each Broker Warrant held, at the Placing Price. The Broker Warrants will not be admitted to trading on AIM and will be transferable with the prior consent of the Company.

17. Strategy for the Company following Completion

On completion of the Proposals the Company willbecome a Rule 15 Cash Shell and as such will be required to make an acquisition or acquisitions which constitutes a reverse takeover under AIM Rule 14 on or before the date falling six months from Completion or be re-admitted to trading on AIM as an investing company under the AIM Rules (which requires the raising of at least £6 million) failing which, the Company's Ordinary Shares would then be suspended from trading on AIM pursuant to AIM Rule 40.

The Company's proposed strategy, following completion of the Demerger, will be to acquire one or more companies and/or projects which are either cash flow generative or show significant potential for growth and a profitable exit.

Leveraging their knowledge and contacts, the Directors will seek to identify suitable investment and/or acquisition opportunities. At this stage, the Directors would not seek to exclude any particular sector or jurisdiction.

In selecting suitable investment and/or acquisition opportunities, The Directors will consider various factors relevant to an opportunity, including the:

· ease with which capital can be raised to meet the working capital requirements both initially and in the future;

· growth potential and outlook for future cash generation;

· likely resulting liquidity in the Company's shares following acquisition(s);

· short, medium and longer-term exit strategies for Shareholders;

· possible synergies with knowledge and contacts of the Directors; and

· suitability for a public listing, either on AIM or another recognised market in the UK.

18. Risk factors

Shareholders' attention is drawn to the Risk Factors set out in Part II of the Document.

19. General Meeting

The Proposals are conditional upon, inter alia, the Shareholders approving the Resolutions at the General Meeting.

The Notice convening the General Meeting to be held at the offices of MSP Secretaries Limited, Eastcastle House, 27/28 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8DH at 11.00 a.m. on 3 November 2020, at which the Resolutions will be proposed is set out at the back of this Circular.

Further details regard the General Meeting and arrangements made in light of the COVID-19 pandemic are set out in paragraph 20 of this Part 1.

A summary of the Resolutions is set out below.

Ordinary Resolutions

1. THAT the Demerger be approved in accordance with Rule 15 of the AIM Rules for Companies.

2. THAT that each existing Ordinary Share will be subdivided into one New Ordinary Share and nine Deferred Shares.

3. THAT the Directors be authorised to allot and issue up to an aggregate nominal amount of £1,650,000 of Relevant Securities.

Special Resolutions

20. Action to be taken

Please check that you have received the following with this document:

· a Form of Proxy for use in respect of the General Meeting; and

· a reply-paid envelope for use in connection with the return of the Form of Proxy (in the UK only).

You are strongly encouraged to complete, sign and return your Form of Proxy in accordance with the instructions printed thereon so as to be received, by post or, during normal business hours and by appointment only, by hand to Share Registrars Limited, The Courtyard, 17 West Street, Farnham, Surrey, GU9 7DR or via e-mail to [email protected]as soon as possible but in any event so as to arrive by not later than 11.00 a.m. on 30 October 2020 (or, in the case of an adjournment of the General Meeting, not later than 48 hours before the time fixed for the holding of the adjourned meeting (excluding any part of a day that is not a Business Day)).

If you hold Existing Ordinary Shares in CREST, no Form of Proxy will be sent to you. Instead, you may appoint a proxy by completing and transmitting a CREST proxy instruction to the Company's registrars, Share Registrars Limited (under Participant ID 7RA36) so that it is received by not later than 11.00 a.m. on 30 October 2020.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic Shareholders are urged to exercise their votes by submitting their Form of Proxy and appointing the Chairman of the General Meeting as their proxy. The UK government has recently tightened the restrictions on gatherings, only permitting gatherings of up to six people to take place subject to limited exemptions. The Board has therefore concluded that Shareholders and their proxies (not including Directors) will not be allowed to attend the meeting in person other than for the purpose of establishing the quorum for the meetings, as to do so would be inconsistent with current government guidelines relating to COVID-19 (as published as at the date of this circular). Any Shareholder seeking to attend the General Meeting in person will be refused entry. The Company is actively following developments and will issue further information through a Regulatory Information Service and/or on its website (www.plutuspowergenplc.com)if it becomes necessary or appropriate to make any alternative arrangements for the General Meeting. The General Meeting will be purely functional in format to comply with the relevant legal requirements.

Appointing a proxy in accordance with the instructions set out above will enable your vote to be counted at the General Meeting. Shareholders who hold their Existing Ordinary Shares through a nominee should instruct their nominee to submit the Form of Proxy on their behalf. Only the formal business set out in the notice of General Meeting will be considered at the meeting. Your attention is drawn to the notes to the Form of Proxy.

21. Irrevocable undertakings

In relation to the Resolutions each of the Directors who is also a Shareholder has irrevocably undertaken to vote in favour of the Resolutions in respect of, in aggregate, 171,333,334 Ordinary Shares held directly by them, representing approximately 19.64 per cent. of the Issued Share Capital.

22. Recommendation

The Board unanimously recommend that Shareholders vote in favour of the Resolutions.

Plutus does not currently generate revenue and is in a highly constrained working capital position at the present time. It is likely that, if Shareholder approval for the Proposals at the General Meeting is not received this would ultimately lead to the Company entering into administration or some other form of insolvency procedure, assuming that alternative funding would not be available in the immediate term. Accordingly, it is very important that Shareholders vote in favour of the Resolutions at the General Meeting.

The Board intend to vote in favour of each of the Resolutions in respect of their direct and indirect shareholdings which in aggregate amount to 171,333,334 Ordinary Shares representing 19.64 per cent. of the Issued Share Capital.

Yours faithfully,

Charles Tatnall

Executive Chairman

For and on behalf of the Board
