Share Buy-Back Policy

 

B.P. Marsh & Partners Plc (AIM: BPM), the specialist venture capital investor in early stage financial services businesses, today announces the details of a share buyback policy.

 

The buy-backs are to be carried out in accordance with the authority conferred by the Company's shareholders at the Company's annual general meeting held on 17th July 2019 for up to a maximum of 3,747,807 issued ordinary shares of 10 pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares").

 

The authority is in place from today until next year's annual general meeting. The maximum amount of money allocated to the share buy-back at this stage is £200,000.

 

Pursuant to the authority, any purchases of Ordinary Shares will be carried out in accordance with (and subject to the limits prescribed by) the authority, the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052 and the Market Abuse Regulation (EU No.596/2014).

 

The Company remains committed to its previously stated objective to reduce the share price discount to net asset value and reserves the right to exercise the authority and effect share buy-backs if, in the opinion of the Company's directors, such action would further enhance shareholder value.

 

It is the Company's custom and intention, when the share price drops to more than 15% below its Net Asset Value per share of 350p, to consider buying small parcels of Ordinary Shares and place them into Treasury and decide at a later point what treatment to apply to them.

 

The Company will announce any market purchase of Ordinary Shares pursuant to the authority without delay.
