Director/PDMR Option Exercise & Dealing

Voting Rights

Creightons plc announces that today Bernard Johnson, a director of the Company, has exercised options over 700,000 Ordinary Shares of 1p in the Company at 4.50 pence per share, and has registered the holding as a joint holding in his own and his wife's names.

The Company also announces that  today Ms Pippa Clark, a director of the Company, has exercised options over 200,000 Ordinary Shares of 1p in the Company at 4.50 pence per share, that Mr Paul Forster, a director of the Company, has exercised options over 500,000 Ordinary Shares of 1p in the Company at 4.50 pence per share and that a further 200,000 options over Ordinary Shares of 1p in the Company have been exercised at 4.50 pence per share by other option holders .

 

The 1,600,000 new Ordinary Shares of 1p issued in fulfilment of the exercise of these options form part of the block listing authority of 20 March 2019 in respect of employee share options and these shares rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares in issue. 

Following this issue, the Company has the ability to issue a further 351,100 Ordinary Shares under its block listing facility. 

As a result of this issue, the total number of ordinary shares in issue now stands at 64,746,143 and the total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 64,746,143.

The above figure of 64,746,143 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they may determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Following this transaction, the total combined beneficial holdings by Mr & Mrs Johnson personally and by Mr Johnson's SIPP are therefore 4,987,844 ordinary 1p shares, 7.70% of the total enlarged issued share capital of the Company. This transaction therefore takes Mr Johnson's beneficial holding in the Company above 7%.

 

Ms Clark's holding in the Company will be 651,818 shares, 1.01% of the total enlarged share capital of the Company.

 

Creightons plc further announces that Paul Forster, a director of the Company, has notified the Company that he and his wife have each disposed of 33,000 ordinary shares of 1p in the Company at 41.87p per share yesterday and today.

 

After the completion of both above transactions, Mr Forster's holding together with that of his wife in the Company will be 1,183,318 shares, 1.83% of the total enlarged share capital of the Company.
