Shares held in Treasury have no voting or dividend rights and are used solely for the satisfaction of employee share awards.
Shares held by the Howden Joinery Group Plc Employee Benefit Trust abstain from voting at the Company’s general meetings and waive dividends. Shares held in the Share Incentive Plan Trust, which have been allocated to employees through UK all-employee shares plans, have both voting and dividend rights.
As at 31 December 2021, 0.93% of the Company’s issued share capital was held in Treasury, 0.22% was held by Directors, persons discharging managerial responsibility (PDMRs), or connected persons of those Directors or PDMRs, 0.63% was held in employee share trusts (excluding any allocated shares which are not forfeitable), and 5.3% was held by major shareholders (those with holdings above 5%).
Free float shares therefore accounted for 92.94% of the Company’s issued share capital at the 31 December 2021.
