BENCHMARK HOLDINGS PLC (THE "COMPANY")

ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING DIRECTOR SUBSCRIPTIONS

Further to the announcement released this morning in connection with the placing of £20.7 million being undertaken by the Company (the "Placing") (the "Placing Announcement"), the Company advises that it has accepted applications from Trond Williksen, Septima Maguire, Peter George, Yngve Myhre and Atle Eide (the "Subscribers") to subscribe for, in aggregate, 295,000 ordinary shares of 0.01 pence each at a price of £0.62 per share (the "Subscription Shares"), being equal to the price being paid by investors in the Placing (the "Subscriptions").  Total proceeds being raised under the Subscriptions are approximately £0.2 million.  The Subscription Shares will be allotted to the Subscribers on  or around 1 December 2021.

Capitalised terms used but not defined in this Announcement have the meanings given in the Placing Announcement.

The Subscriptions are conditional, inter alia, on the Placing Agreement not being terminated prior to Admission (or such later date and/or time as the Company and Numis may agree, being no later than 8.30 a.m. on 8 December 2021).

An application has been made for the Subscription Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that Admission will become effective on 1 December 2021 and that dealings for normal settlement in the Subscription Shares will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 1 December 2021. The Subscription Shares will, when issued and fully paid, rank pari passu in all respects with the Ordinary Shares in issue at that time, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid after the date of Admission.

The total number of ordinary shares in the Company being issued pursuant to the Placing and the Subscriptions is 33,401,620. The Company's total issued share capital following completion of the Placing and the Subscriptions will consist of 703,779,104 ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each with one voting right per share (assuming no options or warrants are exercised in the period between this announcement and Admission). This figure of 703,779,104 ordinary shares may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they can determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company following Admission.

The Subscribers are PDMRs of the Company. The Notification of Dealing Form for each Subscriber can be found below. This notification is made in accordance with the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) no. 596/2014 (as amended) as it forms part of the domestic law of the United Kingdom by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (as amended).
