Osirium Technologies plc (AIM: OSI.L), a leading vendor of cloud-based cybersecurity software, announces that the Group has granted share options of up to 1,866,125 ordinary shares of 1 pence each (the "Options") in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") pursuant to the Osirium Technologies plc Enterprise Management Incentive (EMI) Share Option Plan 2020 - 2025 (the "2020 Scheme") to a number of employees and PDMRs.

The following Options have been granted under the 2020 Scheme to the Company's directors and their closely associated persons ("PCAs") to give a total, when aggregated with options granted to the Company's employees and staff, of 1,866,125 Options granted under the 2020 Scheme:

These Options have been granted at an exercise price of 35p per share, being the higher of the minimum exercise price for all options granted under the 2020 Scheme and the
30-day volume weighted average price of the Company's shares at the date of grant, and will only be exercisable after 2 years from the date of grant (unless an earlier event occurs to cause them to become exercisable under the Rules of the 2020 Scheme).  The Options will vest on the following basis by reference to increases in the Company's share price performance over the Company's share price at grant (determined by reference to a 30-day volume weighted average):

§ 25% vesting on grant

§ 25% vesting at a 50% share price increase to the initial share price at grant

§ 25% vesting at a 100% share price increase to the initial share price at grant

§ 25% vesting at a 150% share price increase to the initial share price at grant

All options granted to the Company's Directors (and their PCAs), staff and employees under the Company's Enterprise Management Incentive Share Option Plan 2016 (the "2016 Scheme") adopted at the time of the Company's AIM IPO in April 2016 have been surrendered   (but excluding their roll-over options granted at the time of the Company's admission to AIM).

About Osirium

Osirium Technologies plc (AIM: OSI) operates in one of the fastest growing parts of the cybersecurity market and is a leading vendor of Privileged Access Security solutions.
