During the period, a total of 5.1 million shares (H1 2019: 9.6 million) were repurchased for a total consideration of £27.2m (H1 2019: £42.9m) before transaction costs of £0.1m (H1 2019: £0.2m). This decrease in the number of shares repurchased in the period was largely due to a reduction in the level of surplus cash available. Total cash returned to shareholders in the period was £69.8m (H1 2019: £80.8m).
