DIRECTOR/PDMR SHAREHOLDINGS

Increase in Director Shareholdings

 

The Company announces that on, 29 January 2021, its Chief Executive Officer, Ed Story, increased his shareholdings pursuant to the vesting of contingent share awards ("Awards") under the Company's Deferred Share Bonus Plan 2014 ("DSBP") over ordinary shares of £0.05 each in the Company ("Shares"), as set out in the table below. The Awards were originally granted in 2019 to vest after two years in respect of a proportion of the performance related annual bonus earned in the 2018 financial year.

 

The Board has determined that, in this instance, it serves the best interest of the Company and its shareholders, with the agreement of Mr Story, to deliver only the net number of Shares after deducting the number of Shares that otherwise would be sold in the market to settle the tax liabilities associated with the settlement of these Awards. Therefore, no Shares will be sold as the associated tax liabilities will be settled by the Company. The Shares being delivered to Mr Story are from those held by the Pharos employee benefit trust to satisfy such Awards. There is therefore no increase in the issued share capital of the Company as a result of the satisfaction of these Awards.
