Cancellation of Shares and Total Voting Rights
 
CRH plc announces that on Wednesday, 29th December 2021, it cancelled 21,000,000 Ordinary Shares of €0.32 each previously held by it as treasury shares.  The Ordinary Shares so cancelled represented 2.64% of the issued share capital of CRH plc.  Ordinary Shares held in treasury do not have any voting rights.
 
Following the above cancellations, as at the date of this announcement, CRH plc's issued share capital is as follows:
 
Ordinary Shares of €0.32 each
 
774,140,338
 
3,296,859 of which are held in treasury
 
7% 'A' Cumulative Preference Shares of €1.27 each
 
 872,000
 
None of which are held in treasury
 
5% Cumulative Preference Shares of €1.27 each
 
50,000
 
None of which are held in treasury
 
 
As none of the Preference Shares have voting rights, the total number of voting rights as at the date of this notice is, therefore, 770,843,479.  This figure, 770,843,479, 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, CRH plc under the Transparency (Directive 2004/109/EC) Regulations 2007 (as amended) (the "Irish Transparency Regulations") and the Central Bank (Investment Market Conduct) Rules.
 
This announcement is made in accordance with Rule 12.6 of the UK Listing Rules and the Irish Transparency Regulations.
