Company") (GXG:CCP) the GXG Main Quote listed company with ISIN B00BPFJXS57and Bristol University Cryptography
and Information Security Group have signed an agreement to explore commercialisation opportunities.

international reputation for its outstanding research in cryptography. Multi-Party Computation is a sub-field
of cryptography and Professor Smart's team has created leading edge intellectual property in this highly
specialised domain. Crossword is working exclusively with the group to explore ways that it can be deployed in
the high value arena of financial and non-financial trading.

commodities trading is paramount. Bristol's research into Multi-Party Computation opens up new, highly secure

leading financial centres, would benefit hugely from making use of it. Partnering with Crossword should help us
