The Company announced on 1 July 2019 that it had published a shareholder circular to convene a general meeting to seek authority to cancel the Company's share premium account, in order to create sufficient distributable reserves to satisfy redemption requests in full under the 2019 Redemption Facility.


As previously announced, at the Company's general meeting held on 23 July 2019, a special resolution was passed that, subject to the confirmation of the Court, enabled the balance standing to the credit of the share premium account of the Company as at 1 July 2019 to be cancelled and credited to a reserve. The Company is pleased to announce that, following the approval of the Court and the subsequent registration of the Court order with the Registrar of Companies on 13 August 2019, the cancellation has now become effective. Accordingly, the amount of £86,986,618 previously held in the share premium account has been cancelled and will be transferred to a reserve.


Payments will be despatched on 15 August 2019 to all shareholders who validly applied to have shares redeemed. Valid redemption requests were received under the Company's redemption facility for the 28 June 2019 Redemption Point in relation to 14,317,907 ordinary shares for cancellation at a redemption price of 53.92 pence per ordinary share.


Following cancellation of the above ordinary shares, 138,335,915 ordinary shares in the Company will remain in issue.
