TR-1 Notifications: Transfer of substantial shareholding

The British Honey Company plc ( " British Honey" or " the Company") the producer of premium British honey, honey-infused spirits and alcohol sanitiser products, has today been informed by its largest shareholder, Cottisford Limited ("Cottisford"), that it has transferred its entire shareholding of 2,590,514 ordinary shares in the Company, representing 27.20% of the issued share capital, to Mr Khaled Said.

 

Khaled Said has now assumed responsibility for the shareholding and will enter into the same lock in and orderly market provisions as Cottisford did at the time of the Company's IPO. 

 

"On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Cottisford for its loyal and committed support over several years. At the same time, I am delighted to welcome Khaled Said as a substantial shareholder in the Company and look forward to developing a close working relationship with him as the business continues to grow."

About British Honey Company

Launched in 2014, BHC is famed for its award-winning fruit and honey infused spirits, marketed under the Keepr ' s brand. Many of the Keepr ' s spirits are infused with BHC ' s proprietary British Honey from its fully traceable apiaries. The impressive spirits range with seasonal lines spans eight gins, four vodkas, two rums, two bourbons and a whiskey which is scheduled for release later this year. BHC ' s spirits are distilled onsite in the company ' s specially customised Still. In March 2020 BHC diversified its product range by developing its first alcohol sanitiser product in the UK in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.  This was produced using BHC ' s excess alcohol supplies and under authorisations obtained from HMRC to use denatured alcohol for alcohol sanitiser use.
