Share Fraud Warning

9 January 2013:  Numis Corporation Plc (the "Company") is aware that a number of shareholders have received unsolicited approaches from unauthorised firms seeking to enter into unusual arrangements to acquire their shares.  Shareholders should be aware that such unsolicited share purchase requests are viewed as suspicious by the Company.

Shareholders are advised to be wary of such approaches. If you have received an unsolicited approach then you should speak to your investment adviser (if you have one) and consult the information for consumers on the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”) website:

This provides guidance on appropriate steps to take to establish whether an approach is legitimate, and contact details for reporting any concerns or suspicions.
