Frontier Developments plc

Option Grants / PDMR Dealings

On 4 October 2019, Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV, "Frontier", the "Company") granted a total of 161,623 options over ordinary shares of 0.5p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") under the existing Long Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP") to the Executive Directors (the "Options"). The exercise price of the Options under the LTIP is the nominal value of the Ordinary Shares, being 0.5 pence each.

Each of the three Executive Directors was awarded an Option over 21,449 Ordinary Shares, to vest in three years dependent on achieving certain Total Shareholder Return performance targets over that 3 year vesting period.  The calculation method and performance conditions of these awards are consistent with the awards issued to each Executive Director in 2017 and 2018.

An additional LTIP Option over 97,276 Ordinary Shares was awarded to Jonny Watts, Frontier's Chief Creative Officer and one of the Company's three Executive Directors.  This additional award was granted to Mr Watts in recognition of his importance to Frontier's future performance through his creative leadership, team management and game development experience.  This additional LTIP Option vests in three years from the date of grant, provided the Company generates an operating profit in each of the three financial years ending on 31 May 2020, 31 May 2021 and 31 May 2022.

The Options awarded to the Executive Directors are set out in the table below, together with the total number of Ordinary Shares held under option by each of the Executive Directors.
