Following the issue of the scrip dividend shares, the total number of shares in issue and voting rights in Capital & Regional will be 224,906,731 with effect from Friday, 22 September 2023. This may 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, Capital & Regional under the UK Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
