At present, the full audited Company accounts including Studio Retail Limited are anticipated to be provided in September.

The purpose of the Closed Period Programme is to reduce the share capital of the Company.


The Programme will be conducted within certain pre-set parameters, and in accordance with the general authority to repurchase shares granted by the Company's shareholders at the 2021 annual general meeting, Chapter 12 of the UK Listing Authority Listing Rules and the provisions of the Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014/EU dealing with buyback programmes. The shares repurchased by the Company will be held in treasury pending cancellation or re-issue.
