Total Voting Rights
In conformity with DTR 5.6.1, Lancashire Holdings Limited (the "Company") announces that as of 31 December 2021, the Company's issued share capital consists of 244,010,007 Common Shares of $0.50 each ("Common Shares"). The Company announced on 2 December 2021 that it had completed a share repurchase programme whereby a total of 1,000,000 Common Shares had been repurchased (the "Repurchased Shares") to satisfy a number of future exercises of awards under its Restricted Share Scheme. The Company held the Repurchased Shares pursuant to a custody agreement, and such shares were accordingly regarded as being held in Treasury. The Repurchased Shares have now been transferred to the Employee Benefit Trust account and therefore the Company has 244,010,007 Common Shares in issue with voting rights, with no Common Shares held in Treasury.
The above figure of 244,010,007 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, the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
This announcement does not constitute, or form part of, an offer or any solicitation of an offer for securities in any jurisdiction.
