Further Admission of shares
The Company announces, in accordance with the AIM Rules, that an application has been made for a further admission of 242,514 new ordinary 3.5p shares ("Ordinary Shares"). This admission is pursuant to the vesting of an award under the ASOS Long Term Incentive Scheme.
The new Ordinary Shares are expected to be admitted to trading on AIM on Wednesday 31 October 2018.
As at 29 October 2018, the Company's issued and fully paid share capital consists of 83,629,761 Ordinary Shares. The new Ordinary Shares will, when issued, rank pari passu with the Company's existing Ordinary Shares. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in Treasury. The total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 83,629,761.
The above figure of 83,629,761 should 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 Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
Following admission on Wednesday 31 October 2018, the Company's issued and fully paid share capital will consist of 83,872,275 Ordinary Shares.
