Friday, 27 April 2018
The Company has been notified that the Trustee of the Company's HMRC Approved Employee Share Acquisition Plan (‘ESAP’) has purchased 7,482 ordinary shares of 20 pence each in the Company in accordance with the ESAP's rules and on behalf of all ESAP participants.
The shares were purchased on 25 April 2018 at a price of 185 pence each in respect of the six-month accumulation period ended on 31 March 2018.
Under the terms of the ESAP, participating members, including employees and certain Directors of the Company, contribute a fixed amount to the Trustee on a monthly basis. The Trustee acquires a number of shares in the Company at the end of the six-month accumulation period (the ‘Period’) based upon the contributions made in the Period and determined by the lowest share price at either the beginning of the Period or on the date of purchase. In this instance the share price used for the allocation of the number of shares for ESAP purposes was the price per share on the date of purchase (185 pence).
