Petards, the AIM quoted developer of advanced security and surveillance systems, announces that it has made an application to the London Stock Exchange for 318,711 new ordinary shares to be admitted to trading on AIM.

All of the Ordinary Shares have equal voting rights. The total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 22,039,315.
This figure may 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 Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
