The Option is being granted in consideration of the payment by RSV to the Company of the sum of £5,000.

The initial term of the Option is four months; however if the Option is partially exercised within the first four months, the Option to exercise the remaining shares will be extended for a further eight months (26 July 2011).

Commenting on the Option Agreement, Stephen Streater CEO of Forbidden Technologies, said:

"As interest in Forbidden Technologies mounts, Forbiddens Board is keen to avoid potential liquidity shortages in the market for Forbidden shares. This option, with an exercise price at a 55% premium to the current market price, will be available to ease potential share shortages, in turn increasing liquidity and generating greater shareholder value".
