Such purchase forms part of the Company's existing share buy-back programme and was effected pursuant to the instructions issued to the Broker by the Company on 29 June 2022, as announced on that date.
In addition, on 2 March 2023, 59,000 ordinary shares of no par value in the Company ("Shares") previously held in treasury, were transferred out of treasury.
Following both the purchase of these shares and transfer out of treasury set out above, PPHE now holds 1,988,653 of its ordinary shares in treasury and has 42,358,757 ordinary shares in issue (excluding treasury shares). Each ordinary share carries one vote and therefore the total number of voting rights in the Company is 42,358,757.
The above figure of voting rights of 42,358,757 should be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
In accordance with Article 5(1)(b) of Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 as it applies in the UK (the Market Abuse Regulation), a full breakdown of the individual trades made by the Broker on behalf of the Company as part of the buy-back programme is detailed below:
