Share Buyback Programme

 

Further to the announcement by the Company on 8th September 2015 of the commencement of a share buyback programme, the Company announces that, on 10th November 2015, it purchased the following number of its ordinary shares of 12.5 pence each (Shares) for cancellation and the following number of its CHESS Depositary Interests (CDIs) to be converted into a holding of Shares for cancellation:

 

 

LSE

 

Number of Shares purchased:

200,000

Average price paid per Share (pence)

288.14

 

 

ASX

 

Number of CDIs purchased:

247,749

Average price paid per CDI (A$ )

6.18

 

Upon settlement of the above transaction, the Company will have 1,135,143,773 Shares in issue, of which 636,677,652 are held in the form of CDIs, equating to a total issued share capital of 1,135,143,773. This figure represents the total number of voting rights in the Company and may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they can determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules.

 

Of the £25 million that the Company intends to expend on buying Shares (including CDIs which have been converted to Shares), it will have expended £15,372,723 following the settlement of today's purchase.

 

As CDIs have been purchased by Merrill Lynch International on ASX (which will be converted into ordinary shares and cancelled by the Company), further information regarding that purchase of CDIs is provided in the attached Appendix 3E.
