Following the purchase, ADAM said it will hold the shares bought back and purchased off-market as treasury shares.

Commenting on the buyback, ADAM chairman John Croft, Chairman said: "This marks another positive development in addressing historic outstanding issues.”

And, separately, the investment group pointed out that its shares are currently tradeable on a range of the UK and international platforms, with the recent publication of the company's Key Information Document (KID) expected to enable Adamas shares to be added to the fund, or closed-end fund lists available for investors' online trading.
