Mitie Group plc  - Update on Share Buyback Programme


Mitie Group plc ("Mitie" or the "Group") today announces it has carried out a review of the progress of its Share Buyback Programme (the "Programme") announced 9 June 2022 to purchase up to £50m Ordinary Shares of 2.5 pence each, conducted within the exemption contained within Article 5(1) MAR. Since the commencement of the Programme the Group has purchased 9.1m Ordinary Shares at a total consideration of £5.4m (excluding expenses).

The Board has concluded that the current low liquidity in the issued Ordinary Shares is significantly impacting the progress of the Programme. In order to proceed with the Programme in an effective manner, the Group in discussions with its broker, Jefferies International Limited agreed that on any given trading day a buyback of shares under the Programme may be between 25 percent and 50 percent of the aggregated average daily trading volume across all trading platforms on which Mitie shares are traded. On days where a buyback of shares exceeds 25 per cent of the average daily trading volume, the Group will not fall within the exemption contained in Article 5(1) MAR.

No other changes have been made to the Programme or the basis on which it will be conducted (in each case as announced on 9 June 2022).

Details of any Ordinary Shares repurchased will be notified to a Regulatory Information Service by the Group following any repurchase as required by the MAR and the Listing Rules of the FCA.
