Director/PDMR shareholding

 

The Company announces that Andrew Findlay, Chief Financial Officer, has entered into an arrangement on 31 January 2017 under which Mr Findlay has requested that on the payroll date of each month (or the next dealing day as relevant) the sum of £3,125, less deduction of tax and dealing costs, be applied from his salary to the purchase of ordinary shares at prevailing value. This amount relates to Andrew's monthly salary increase effective from 1 January 2017. As noted in the Company's 2016 Annual Report, Andrew had asked for his cash salary to remain static and he wishes for the amount of his 2017 salary increase to be applied to the purchase of shares, which he would retain in order to build his shareholding in the Company. The Company's Remuneration Committee is supportive of his decision.

 

Under the terms of this arrangement, on 31 January 2017, Andrew Findlay acquired 168 27 2/7 p ordinary shares in the capital of the Company, at a purchase price of £9.65 per share.

 

The terms of the arrangement, which constitute an employee saving scheme, cannot be altered or cancelled during a closed period. The transactions under this arrangement will be disclosed on a monthly basis by announcement through a Regulatory Information Service, pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

 

Set out below is the notification made in accordance with the requirements of the EU Market Abuse Regulation.
