Share Buyback Programme Pause & Authorised Increase
As the next portfolio valuation date is 30 September 2021, Riverstone Energy Limited (the "Company") announces that its £20.0 million share buyback programme has been paused, as was done in previous closed periods, until after the Company's Interim Management Statement for 30 September 2021 (the "IMS") has been published, scheduled for 27 October 2021. Since the Company's announcement on 11 May 2021, 2,390,860 ordinary shares have been bought back at a total cost of approximately £9.8 million, such that there is £10.2 million remaining of the previously authorised amount of £20.0 million.
Further, the Board has approved the increase of the authorised amount by £20 million from £20.0 million to £40.0 million and intends to recommence the share buyback programme with Numis Securities Limited and J.P. Morgan Securities plc after publication of the IMS.
