Since the Disclosure and Transparency Rules came into effect on 20 January 2007, any shareholder who has a change of shareholdings in any listed company that results in their holding being at 3% or more must complete a TR-1 disclosure form and send it to the company and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) within two days of the transaction.

The company itself must then announce details of the notification to the market via an RNS announcement by close of business on the next working day.

Changes to the disclosure

Rather than being based on "interest in shares", the disclosure is now based on the total number of voting rights and capital for each class of shares.

The total number of voting rights issues by the company can be obtained via the RNS service, from the company’s website or by requesting this information from the company secretary.

Sending your TR-1 form

In order to help you with the process of notifying us, a downloadable copy of the form TR-1 is available below. Once you've completed the form, please post or email it to:


Company Secretary
Melbourne House
Brandy Carr Road

If you have any questions relating to this matter please speak to our Company Secretary, Sally Jones, on +44 (0)1924 882501.

Please note that this information is provided as general guidance only, and no liability will be accepted for any inaccuracy. To obtain full details of the obligations and requirements surrounding the Disclosure Transparency Rules (including exemptions), you should contact the FCA or look at the FCA website
