Transaction in Own Shares

All of the Ordinary Shares purchased under the Programme will be transferred to the Empresaria Employee Benefit Trust.

Following the above purchase, the Company has 49,853,001 Ordinary Shares in issue, of which 296,300 are held by the Company as treasury shares until they are transferred to the Empresaria Employee Benefit Trust. Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company is 49,556,701.
The above figure of 49,556,701 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 Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
