GVC Holdings PLC (AIM:GVC), a leading provider of services to the online gaming industry, announces today that:
- 100,000 ordinary shares of €0.01 each (“Ordinary Shares”) have been issued to satisfy an obligation to one of its employees under the Company’s Executive Share Option Scheme 2004.
- Pursuant to this announcement, application has been made for 100,000 new ordinary shares of the Company to be admitted to trading on AIM. This is expected to occur on 10 October 2013. Following admission, GVC’s issued ordinary share capital will consist of 60,848,427 ordinary shares. The new ordinary shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the ordinary shares of the Company currently traded on AIM.
- As a result of the above, at the date of this notification, the Company’s issued share capital consists of 60,848,427 Ordinary Shares with voting rights. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in Treasury.
Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company is 60,848,427.
- The total of 60,848,427 ordinary shares may therefore be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA’s Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
