Numis Corporation

Notice of Meeting and Proposed Capital Reduction

RNS Number : 8075N
Numis Corporation PLC
11 August 2017



Numis Corporation Plc ("Numis" or the "Company")

Posting of Circular and Notice of General Meeting for Proposed Capital Reduction


Numis announces that it is today posting a circular (the "Circular") to shareholders in connection with a proposed capital reduction of the Company's share premium account, including notice of a general meeting to be held at 9.30am on 30 August 2017 for the purpose of approving the capital reduction.


A share premium account is an undistributable reserve and, accordingly, the purposes for which the Company can use it are extremely restricted.  The proposal aims to create additional distributable reserves for the Company by cancelling the amount standing to the credit of the share premium account and transferring it to the Company's profit and loss account.  The realised profits thereby created would be applied to increase the accumulated profit on the Company's profit and loss account.


By reducing capital in this way, the Company increases its flexibility to pay dividends, to facilitate any prospective buyback of shares or to provide flexibility for any other general corporate purposes, subject to the financial performance of the Company.  However, the Company has not made any proposal or decision as to the use of any such realised profits, should the Capital Reduction take place.

The proposal is conditional upon the passing of the Resolution set out in the notice of General Meeting, as well as Court approval being obtained.


Following the implementation of the capital reduction, there will be no change in the nominal value of the ordinary shares or the number of ordinary shares in issue. No new share certificates will be issued as a result of the capital reduction.


The circular and notice of general meeting will shortly be made available on the Company's website,
