ICAP announces increase in shareholder voting rights

British interdealer broker ICAP plc has today announced its current status with regard to shareholder voting rights and capital.

In conformity with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)’s Disclosure and Transparency Rule 5.6.1, ICAP has today announced that as of September 1 2014 its capital consists of 664,537,006 ordinary shares.

The company holds 16,222,086 ordinary shares in Treasury, therefore the total number of voting rights in the company is 648,314,920. 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 in their interest in, ICAP plc under the FCA’s Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

When examining these figures compared to last month’s disclosure, whilst the total number of ordinary shares remains the same, the firm had listed a total number of voting rights of 648,313,818 demonstrating that ICAP has raised slightly more capital from shareholders during the month of August than during July this year at a time when FX trading volumes had slumped to the second lowest since the company’s inception.
