The confirmation follows previous announcements on 18 December 2013 and 16 September 2014.

It also follows the announcement that Greg Fitzgerald, who has been chief executive of the housebuilding and construction group for nine years, will retire no later than the end of 2015.

Fitzgerald, who has been with Galliford Try for a total of 33 years, said his decision to leave was a personal one.

The company said last week that it has already begun the process to find a successor.

In its full-year results released on 16 September, Galliford Try reported group revenue of £1.77bn for the year ended 30 June 2014, a 21 per cent increase from £1.47bn last year.

Pre-tax profits grew by 28 per cent from £74.1m to £95.2m.
