PHSC PLC

("PHSC" or the "Company")

 

Transaction in Own Shares

 

PHSC (AIM: PHSC), a leading provider of health, safety, hygiene and environmental consultancy services and security solutions to the public and private sectors, announces that it has made the following purchases of ordinary shares of 10p each ("Ordinary Shares") pursuant to its latest share buyback programme announced on 15 August 2023 (the "Buyback Programme"):

Date of purchases:

22-23 August 2023

Number of Ordinary Shares purchased (the "Buyback Shares"):

706,767

Highest price paid per Ordinary Share:

24.45p

Lowest price paid per Ordinary Share:

24.45p

Volume weighted average price:

24.45p

The Company will hold the Buyback Shares in treasury. Following the repurchase of the Buyback Shares set out above, the Company's issued share capital consists of 11,140,252 Ordinary Shares (excluding treasury shares), and the Company will hold 706,767 Ordinary Shares in treasury with no voting rights attached. Therefore, the total voting rights in the Company will be 11,140,252. This figure for the total number of voting rights 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 FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.   

Directors' Dealings and Concert Party Holding

As announced on 15 August 2023, the Board notes that certain of the Company's directors, namely Stephen King (Chairman and CEO) and Nicola Coote (Deputy Chairman and Deputy CEO) (the "Concert Party Directors"), co-founders and longstanding executive directors of the Company, are deemed, along with their respective spouses and close relatives, to be members of a concert party in respect of the Company as defined in the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "City Code") (the "Concert Party").

Accordingly, the Concert Party Directors agreed, prior to any share purchases occurring pursuant to the Buyback Programme, to enter into irrevocable undertakings in respect of the Buyback Programme (the "Irrevocables"). Pursuant to the terms of the Irrevocables, the Concert Party Directors have irrevocably and unconditionally agreed to sell (in the case of Stephen King, via his SIPP provider, the entity which holds the majority of his interest in the Ordinary Shares) to the Company such number of Ordinary Shares as is required to ensure that the existing aggregate percentage holding of the Concert Party does not increase at any time as a result of the implementation of the Buyback Programme.

Pursuant to the Irrevocables, the Buyback Shares above therefore include Ordinary Shares acquired by the Company from Stephen King and Nicola Coote, as detailed below along with their resulting interests:
