("DX", the "Company" or the "Group") 


Appointment of New Auditor

DX is pleased to announce that PKF Littlejohn LLP ("PKF") has been appointed as the Company's new auditor, with the appointment taking effect immediately. 


PKF will commence the audit of the Company's report and accounts for the financial period ended 3 July 2021 (the "2021 Audit") without delay, and will commence the audit of the Group's financial statements for the current financial year ending 2 July 2022 as soon as practicable.


Once the Company and PKF have agreed the 2021 Audit timetable, the Company will commence discussions with AIM, through its NOMAD, finnCap, to seek a derogation from AIM Rule 41 in order to allow time for the 2021 Audit to be completed and for AIM Rule 19 to be complied with. As noted in the Company's announcement on 10 May 2022, AIM Rule 19 requires the Company's accounts for the financial period ended 3 July 2021 to be published and sent to shareholders without delay and, in any event, not later than six months after the end of the financial year to which the accounts relate. The Company's failure to comply with that Rule resulted in the suspension in trading in the Company's shares on 4 January 2022 under AIM Rule 40.  AIM Rule 41 provides London Stock Exchange plc (as the operator of AIM) with the ability to cancel admission of the Company's shares to trading on AIM where an AIM company's shares have been suspended for six months. 


Further updates regarding the completion of the 2021 Audit will be made as required.


This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) 596/2014 as it forms part of UK domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 ("MAR"), and is disclosed in accordance with the company's obligations under Article 17 of MAR.
