Share Buyback Programme

The Company announces that it has agreed a new £3 million share buyback programme (the "Buyback Programme"). 


Under the Buyback Programme the Company will, at appropriate times, seek to buy back its Ordinary Shares using the Company's existing cash resources for an amount up to £3 million (the "Maximum Amount") replacing any previous programme.  The Buyback Programme is considered to be in the best interests of all shareholders and is consistent with the capital allocation strategy of the Company. 


The Company has entered into an agreement for its broker Stifel Nicolaus Europe Limited ("Stifel") to carry out purchases of its Ordinary Shares under the Buyback Programme on its behalf. As and when requested to do so by the Company, Stifel will seek to purchase Ordinary Shares with total purchases over the programme up to the Maximum Amount.


The share repurchases will be carried out on the London Stock Exchange and will be effected within certain pre-set parameters and in accordance with the Company's general authority to purchase its Ordinary Shares granted by its shareholders. The total maximum number of Ordinary Shares to be purchased under the Buyback Programme is 30 million.  Share repurchases under the Buyback Programme may be undertaken until the earlier of the Maximum Amount being repurchased and 27 September 2024.  All Ordinary Shares repurchased under the Buyback Programme will be cancelled.


The Company will make further announcements in due course following the completion of any share repurchases.


The Buyback Programme, the purpose of which is to reduce the Ordinary Share capital of the Company, will also be effected within the parameters of the Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014/EU and the Commission Delegated Regulation 2016/1052/EU, each as incorporated into UK domestic law by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.
