Prime People plc’s Capital Reduction And Return To Shareholders


Charles Russell Speechlys advised AIM listed Prime People plc on its capital reduction and return of capital to shareholders.

The reduction meant the cancellation of part of the amount standing to the credit of the Company’s share premium account and the subsequent return of capital to shareholders.

The transaction required Prime People plc to gain shareholder and then court approval. The transaction enabled them to return capital amounting to c.16% of the share price (before the publication of the circular was announced) to shareholders.
