("PHSC" or the "Company") 
 
Transaction in Own Shares and Completion of Buyback Programme 
 
PHSC (AIM: PHSC), a leading provider of health, safety, hygiene and 
environmental consultancy services and security solutions to the public and 
private sectors, announces that it has made the following purchases of ordinary 
shares of 10p each ("Ordinary Shares") pursuant to its latest share buyback 
programme announced on 15 August 2023 (the "Buyback Programme"): 
 
+-----------------------------------------------------------+--------------+ 
|Date of purchases:                                         |23 August 2023| 
+-----------------------------------------------------------+--------------+ 
|Number of Ordinary Shares purchased (the "Buyback Shares"):|106,015       | 
+-----------------------------------------------------------+--------------+ 
|Highest price paid per Ordinary Share:                     |24.5p         | 
+-----------------------------------------------------------+--------------+ 
|Lowest price paid per Ordinary Share:                      |24.0p         | 
+-----------------------------------------------------------+--------------+ 
|Volume weighted average price:                             |24.24p        | 
+-----------------------------------------------------------+--------------+ 
 
The Company has now effectively reached the authorised amount for the Buyback 
Programme and, accordingly, the Board has elected to conclude the Buyback 
Programme with immediate effect. 
 
As previously announced, the Board will be seeking authority at its upcoming 
Annual General Meeting, to be held in September, for a further Buyback 
Programme. It should however not be assumed that thenew authority, if granted, 
will be exercised. 
 
The Company will hold the Buyback Shares in treasury. Following the repurchase 
of the Buyback Shares set out above, the Company's issued share capital consists 
of 11,034,237 Ordinary Shares (excluding treasury shares), and the Company will 
hold 812,782 Ordinary Shares in treasury with no voting rights attached. 
Therefore, the total voting rights in the Company will be 11,034,237. This 
figure for the total number of voting rights 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 Guidance and Transparency Rules. 
 
Directors' Dealings and Concert Party Holding 
 
As announced on 15 August 2023, the Board notes that certain of the Company's 
directors, namely Stephen King (Chairman and CEO) and Nicola Coote (Deputy 
Chairman and Deputy CEO) (the "Concert Party Directors"), co-founders and 
longstanding executive directors of the Company, are deemed, along with their 
respective spouses and close relatives, to be members of a concert party in 
respect of the Company as defined in the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the 
"City Code") (the "Concert Party"). 
 
Accordingly, the Concert Party Directors agreed, prior to any share purchases 
occurring pursuant to the Buyback Programme, to enter into irrevocable 
undertakings in respect of the Buyback Programme (the "Irrevocables"). Pursuant 
to the terms of the Irrevocables, the Concert Party Directors irrevocably and 
unconditionally agreed to sell (in the case of Stephen King, via his SIPP 
provider, the entity which holds the majority of his interest in the Ordinary 
Shares) to the Company such number of Ordinary Shares as is required to ensure 
that the existing aggregate percentage holding of the Concert Party does not 
increase at any time as a result of the implementation of the Buyback Programme. 
 
Pursuant to the Irrevocables, the Buyback Shares above therefore include 
Ordinary Shares acquired by the Company from Stephen King and Nicola Coote, as 
detailed below along with their resulting interests:
