Bloomsbury announces that in order to satisfy the deferred consideration for the acquisition of Oxford International Publishing Limited outlined in the announcement on 25 September 2008, which can be found on the Company's website www.bloomsbury-ir.co.uk, on 10 August 2016 the Company issued and allotted 247,393 Ordinary Shares. The shares rank pari passu in all respects with the existing issued Ordinary Shares of the Company.
An application has been made to the UK Listing Authority and the London Stock Exchange for 247,393 shares to be admitted to trading on the Official List ("Admission"). Admission is expected to become effective on 26 August 2016.
Following the allotment, the total number of Ordinary Shares of the Company in issue is 75,328,570 with each Ordinary Share carrying the right to one vote. There are no Ordinary Shares held in Treasury. The total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 75,328,570.
The above figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in Bloomsbury under the Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
