Total Voting Rights and Capital
 
In conformity with Paragraph 5.6.1R of the Disclosure Guidelines and Transparency Rules and Article 15 of the Transparency Directive, Diageo plc (the "Company") would like to notify the market of the following:
 
The Company's issued capital as at 31 January 2019 consisted of 2,647,824,316 Ordinary Shares of 28 101/108 pence each ("Ordinary Shares"), with voting rights.  230,461,359 Ordinary Shares were held in Treasury, in respect of which, voting rights were not exercised.
 
Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company was 2,417,362,957 and this figure 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, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidelines and Transparency Rules.

Diageo PLC – (Share repurchase programme)
Dated 07 February 2019
 
 
 
7 February 2019
 
Diageo plc share repurchase programme
 
 
On 30 January 2019, the Board of Diageo plc approved an increase to the share buyback programme taking place during the financial year ending 30 June 2019 ("the F19 Programme"). The F19 Programme will now return up to £3.0 billion to shareholders.
 
During the first tranche of the F19 Programme, which ended on 31 January 2019, Diageo repurchased 47,920,097 shares worth £1.3 billion. In order to execute the second tranche of the F19 Programme, Diageo today announces that it has entered into a non-discretionary agreement with Citigroup Global Markets Limited ("Citi"). This agreement will commence on 7 February 2019 and is expected to end no later than 30 June 2019. During the second tranche, share repurchases of up to £1.7 billion will be made.
 
Citi will make its trading decisions in relation to the company's securities independently of, and uninfluenced by, the company. Any repurchase of shares by Diageo contemplated by this announcement will be carried out on the London Stock Exchange and/or other recognised investment exchange(s).
 
The purpose of the buyback programme is to reduce the share capital of Diageo plc. All shares repurchased will be cancelled. 
 
The buybacks will be affected within certain pre-set parameters and in accordance with Diageo's general authority to repurchase shares, and will be conducted within the parameters prescribed by the Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014, the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052 and, in the case of Diageo plc, Chapter 12 of the Listing Rules.
 
The second tranche of the F19 Programme of up to £1.7 billion will fall within the maximum number of shares that may be repurchased pursuant to Diageo's existing general authority from shareholders to repurchase up to 246,118,306 shares, as granted at its 2018 annual general meeting.

Possible partial tender offer for shares in Sichuan Shuijingfang Company Limited
 
Diageo, through its wholly-owned indirect subsidiary, Grand Metropolitan International Holdings Limited ("GMIHL"), has approached the Board of Directors of Sichuan Shuijingfang Company Limited ("SJF") with a proposal for a partial tender offer to increase its aggregate equity stake in SJF (through its wholly-owned subsidiaries) from 60.00% to up to 70.0% at an offer price of RMB45.00 per share.
 
SJF has made an announcement in respect of such proposal on the website of the Shanghai Stock Exchange (http://www.sse.com.cn). An English translation of SJF's announcement is set out below.
 
The announcement today, of the proposal outlined above, does not constitute the announcement of an offer and creates no obligation on Diageo and/or any Diageo subsidiary to make an offer. Accordingly, shareholders in SJF have been advised that such proposal is still under discussion and there can be no certainty that any offer will be made. Shareholders have been further advised to be aware of investment risks in SJF shares. Further developments will be communicated to shareholders in due course.

Important Notice:
 
This partial tender offer is still under discussion and there is no certainty that it will be made.

On 26 February 2019, Sichuan Shuijingfang Co., Ltd. (the "Company" or "SJF") received a written notification from its shareholder, Grand Metropolitan International Holdings Limited (the "Offeror"), stating that the Offeror intends to increase the percentage of its direct and indirect holding of SJF shares from 60.00% to up to 70.00% through a tender offer. 
The Offeror of the tender offer is Grand Metropolitan International Holdings Limited, an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the actual controller of the Company, Diageo plc, which directly and indirectly holds 293,127,418 SJF shares in total, representing 60.00% of the total share capital of the Company.
I. Basic scheme of the tender offer
(I) Name of the target company and the shares to be acquired
1.        Name of the target company: Sichuan Shuijingfang Co., Ltd.
2.        Name of the stock of the target company: Shuijingfang
3.        Code of the stock of the target company: 600779
4.        Type of shares: RMB common shares
5.        The maximum number of SJF shares to be acquired by the Offeror through the tender offer is 48,854,570 shares, but there is no limitation on the minimum number of SJF shares to be acquired.
6.        Percentage of the shares to be acquired in the total share capital of the target company: 10.00%
7.        Form of payment: Cash
8.        Tender offer price: RMB45.00/share
9.        This tender offer is a partial tender offer to shareholders of the Company other than Sichuan Chengdu Shuijingfang Group Co., Ltd. and Diageo Highlands Holding B.V.  Upon the publication of the tender offer report, this tender offer will be subject to no other condition.
(II)  Tender offer price and its calculation basis
 
1.   Tender offer price
 
The tender offer price is RMB45.00/share.
 
2.   Calculation basis
 
According to the Measures for Administration of Acquisition of Listed Companies (the "Acquisition Measures") and other relevant regulations, the tender offer price and its calculation basis are as follows:
 
1The Offeror did not acquire any SJF shares in 6 months prior to the date of this indicative announcement of the tender offer.
 
2The volume weighted daily average price of SJF shares in 30 trading days prior to the date of this indicative announcement of the tender offer is RMB32.13/share.  After taking into consideration the overall development and recent market price level of the industry, it is decided that the trading price of the tender offer is RMB45.00/share, representing a 40.05% premium over the volume weighted daily average price of the shares in 30 trading days prior to the date of the indicative announcement of the tender offer report, and a 19.33% premium over the closing price of 26 February 2019. 
 
3The tender offer price is not lower than the maximum price paid by the Offeror for acquiring the same class of shares in 6 months prior to the date of the indicative announcement of the tender offer, or the volume weighted daily average price of the same class of shares in 30 trading days prior to the date of the indicative announcement.  Therefore, the tender offer price complies with the requirement of the Acquisition Measures.
 
(III) Total funding and source of funds
 
Based on the tender offer price of RMB45.00/share, the maximum funding required for the tender offer shall be RMB2,198,455,650.00, all of which will be from the Offeror's own fund or raised by the Offeror.
 
II.   This tender offer is a partial tender offer, and the purpose of the tender offer is not to terminate the listing status of SJF.
 
III.  Risk Warning
 
This partial tender offer is still under discussion and there is no certainty that it will be made. The Company will continue to perform information disclosure obligations in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.  Investors are advised to stay informed of further announcements that may be issued by the Company, be aware of investment risks and make prudent investment decisions.
 
 
The Company will closely follow up the development of these matters and promptly disclose relevant information in accordance with relevant regulations. The information disclosure platforms designated by the Company are the China Securities, Shanghai Securities, the Securities Times, Securities Daily and the website of Shanghai Stock Exchange (www.sse.com.cn).  Please refer to the information in relation to the Company as published on these platforms.  Investors are advised to pay attention to relevant announcements and be aware of investment risks.
