("Helios" or the "Company")

 

Transaction in Own Shares

and

Total Voting Rights

 

 

Helios announces that on 30 August 2019 it purchased a total of 15,000 ordinary shares of 10 pence each in the Company ("ordinary shares") at an average price of 120 pence per ordinary share. The repurchased shares will be held in treasury.

 

This purchase forms part of the Company's share repurchase authority, granted at the shareholder meeting on 16 July 2019, with the objective of enhancing net asset value per share.

 

Following settlement of the above transaction, the Company's total number of ordinary shares in issue shall be 18,018,128 ordinary shares (excluding shares held in treasury), each carrying voting rights. This figure 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. The Company will also hold 372,778 ordinary shares in treasury, which do not carry voting rights.
