Shareholder information

Where can I find details of the current share price of the Company’s shares?

Share price information is shown on this website via a link to the London Stock Exchange. Please note that there is a price delay of at least 15 minutes against real time values. Other websites also show share price information directly. Share prices are often quoted alongside a unique code known as a stock exchange ticker. The London Stock Exchange ticker for Macfarlane Group PLC is MACF.
