The subscription price was 77.0 per share. Following the above allotment, there are 97,209,695 ordinary shares in issue.
Application will be made on 5 January 2017 for these shares, which will rank pari passu with existing ordinary shares, to be admitted to the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's market for listed securities.
In conformity with the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules, the Company notifies the market that the capital of the Company as at 23 December 2016 consists of 97,209,695 ordinary shares with a nominal value of 25p each.
