FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                                       24 February 2017

 

CREIGHTONS PLC ("Creightons" or "the Company")

Exercise of Employee Share Options, Issue of Equity, Directors' Dealings and Total Voting Rights

 

The Company is pleased to announce that further to the exercise of options by members of the employee's share option schemes,  a total of 715,000 new ordinary shares ("the Option Shares") have been issued for a total of £16,950.

Application will be made for the Option Shares,  which will rank pari passu with the Company's existing ordinary shares,  to be admitted to listing on the premium listing segment of the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities ("Admission").    Admission is expected on or around 2 March 2017.

On Admission, the Company will have 60,552,243 ordinary shares in issue with voting rights. Creightons does not currently hold any shares in treasury. Accordingly, this figure of 60,552,243 ordinary shares may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

The following three directors were among those who received shares as a result of this share issue:

Ms Pippa Clark received 100,000 taking her holding to 501,818 shares, 0.83% of the enlarged share capital;

Mr Paul Forster received 200,000 taking his holding to 749,318 shares, 1.24% of the enlarged share capital; and 

Mr Martin Stevens received 300,000 taking his holding to 518,818 shares, 0.96% of the enlarged share capital. 

The increase in issued share capital reduces other notifiable holding proportionately, and takes the holding of the following shareholders, who are also directors, through one of the notifiable percentages:

Mr William McIlroy, whose holding of 16,219,275 is now 26.79% (previously 27.11%), and Mr Bernard Johnson, whose holding of 4,787,844 is now 7.91% (previously 8.00%).
