As a result of the cancellation of the treasury shares, the Company's issued share capital has been reduced to 98,967,443 ordinary shares. The total percentage of shares held by the majority shareholder, Lord Michael Ashcroft is now 78.33%. Following this cancellation, there are no shares held in treasury.
Further to the Company's recent Continuation to the BVI, which resulted in the re-admission of 18,795,345 depository interests to trading on AIM, being the number of ordinary shares on the Company's register represented by depository interests at that time, CIHL has applied for admission of an additional 80,172,098 depository interests to trading on AIM ("Admission") to match the Company's revised share capital figure. The increased number of depository interests has been made to ensure that any shareholder that wishes to trade electronically in future is able to do so upon de-materialising shares into CREST. It is expected that Admission will occur on 18 May 2020.
