Issue of ordinary shares - Replacement
This announcement amends and replaces the announcement "Issue of ordinary shares" made by AJ Bell plc ("AJ Bell" or "Company") on 2 July 2019 at 11.05am under RNS Number: 2115E.
The previous announcement made reference to the issue of 1,045,124 new ordinary shares of £0.000125. The reference should have been to the issue of 1,393,558 new ordinary shares of £0.000125. As a consequence, the references in the previous announcement to the total number of ordinary shares in issue, the total number of voting rights in the Company and the figure which may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they may determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules as being 408,381,777 were incorrect. Those references should have been to 408,730,211 ordinary shares. All of the other information remains unchanged.
The amended announcement is set out in full below:
9 September 2019
