Correction to Total Voting Rights and Capital
This is a correction to the Total Voting Rights announcement dated 1 June 2021 (RNS Number: 4486A) which incorrectly stated the Company's issued share capital and total number of voting rights as at 31 May 2021.
In conformity with Paragraph 5.6.1R of the Disclosure Guidelines and Transparency Rules and Article 15 of the Transparency Directive, Diageo plc (the "Company") would like to notify the market of the following:
The Company's issued capital as at 31 May 2021 consisted of 2,560,716,650 Ordinary Shares of 28 101/108 pence each ("Ordinary Shares"), with voting rights. 221,791,744 Ordinary Shares were held in Treasury, in respect of which, voting rights were not exercised.
Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company was 2,338,924,906 and this figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidelines and Transparency Rules.
