    31 May

    In conformity with the Transparency Directive's transitional provision 6 we would like to notify the market of the following:
     
    RPS Group plc's capital consists of 225,318,871 ordinary shares with voting rights. RPS Group plc does not hold any shares in Treasury. The increase in the number of shares (263,818) from those announced on 30 April 2018 relate to the Company’s Share Incentive Plan and Performance Share Plan.
     
    Therefore, the total number of voting rights in RPS Group plc remains at 225,318,871.
     
    The above figure (225,318,871) may 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, RPS Group plc under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

    AGM Trading Update

    01 May

    “Q1-2018 trading steady and in line with management’s expectations”

    RPS announces that the Group’s trading for the three months ended 31 March 2018 (‘Q1-2018’) was in line with management’s expectations.

    Fee income in Q1-2018 was £141.9 million (Q1-2017: £141.3 million, at constant currency £135.9 million).

    Profitability in Q1-2018, while slightly above management’s expectation, was lower than in the same period last year due to the Easter holiday break falling partly in March this year and due to foreign exchange movements.

    Our Built and Natural Environment (BNE) business in Europe experienced steady conditions in all its main markets. In BNE North America, market conditions were good although it remains difficult to recruit staff which is hampering progress. In Australia Asia Pacific, market conditions were generally favourable on the east coast and there was more activity in the west coast oil and gas markets. In Energy there has been a marked increase in the level of enquiries and general market activity although this has yet to translate into additional work.

    Net bank debt at 31 March 2018 was £87.0 million (31 December 2017: £80.6 million).

    Voting Rights and Capital

    29 Mar
     

    In conformity with the Transparency Directive's transitional provision 6 we would like to notify the market of the following:
     
    RPS Group plc's capital consists of 225,006,761 ordinary shares with voting rights. RPS Group plc does not hold any shares in Treasury. The increase in the number of shares (82,690) from those announced on 28 February 2018 relate to the Company’s Share Incentive Plan and Performance Share Plan.
     
    Therefore, the total number of voting rights in RPS Group plc remains at 225,006,761.
     
    The above figure (225,006,761) may 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, RPS Group plc under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

    In addition on 8 March 2018 awards of shares as nil cost options were made to John Douglas and Gary Young under the RPS Group Plc Short Term Annual Bonus Plan (the “Plan”).
