("MMX" or the "Company")
Share Buyback Programme
Further to the announcement of 18 July 2019, Minds + Machines Group Limited (AIM: MMX), the top-level domain registry company, announces that it has approved a share buyback programme of ordinary shares of no par value in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") for an aggregate purchase price of up to £1 million (the "Buyback Programme"). The Buyback Programme forms part of the Group's broader strategy to deliver shareholder value.
The Buyback Programme will be independently managed by finnCap Ltd, the Company's broker, which will make trading decisions independently and without the influence of the Company. The Buyback Programme is in accordance with the terms of the Company's authority to make market purchases of its own Ordinary Shares (the "Authority") and will be conducted within certain parameters.
The Buyback Programme will be effected in accordance with the Authority in that the maximum price paid per Ordinary Share is to be no more than 105 per cent. of the average middle market closing price of an Ordinary Share for the five business days preceding the date of purchase. The Buyback Programme will commence today and will continue until 25 September 2019.
Any Ordinary Shares acquired as a result of the Buyback Programme will be held in treasury. Any Ordinary Shares acquired as a result of the Buyback Programme will be announced to the market without delay.
Due to the limited liquidity in the issued Ordinary Shares, any Buyback of Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Authority on any trading day may represent a significant proportion of the daily trading volume in the Ordinary Shares on AIM and may exceed 25 per cent. of the average daily trading volume, being the limit laid down in Article 5(1) of Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 and, accordingly, the Company will not benefit from the exemption contained in this Article.
The Company confirms that it currently has no other unpublished price sensitive information other than what has been disclosed above.
The information communicated in this announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) No. 596/2014.
