Total Voting Rights Correction
Following the recent discovery of an error to the Total Voting Rights announcement released to the market on 2 March 2020, the Company wishes to notify the market of the correct voting rights as outlined in the table below.
Due to this initial error, the Transaction in Own Shares announcements released to the market on 3 March 2020 and 11 March 2020, in addition to the Total Voting Rights announcement released to the market on 1 April 2020 all incorrectly detailed the Company’s Total Voting Rights.
The Company is currently working with investors to remedy any disclosure of holding(s) in the Company and replacement announcements will be made for investors where required. It should be noted that the correct statement of capital and voting rights have been accurately reflected in Interim and Annual Financial Statements and Reports during the period.
In accordance with DTR 5.6.1R, the Company notifies the market of the following:
