I own shares in a UK listed company.
The company has just issued a RNS (Regulatory News Service) announcement of total voting rights, which appears to state the obvious. For example:
As at 30 September 2020, there were 199,514,929 ordinary shares of 1p in issue carrying one vote each. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in Treasury. Therefore, the total voting rights in the Company are 199,514,929
Does anyone know why it would be a regulatory requirement to announce total voting rights?
