NOTIFICATION OF TRANSACTIONS OF DIRECTORS/PERSONS DISCHARGING MANAGERIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND CONNECTED PERSONS

 

The Board of BGEO Group Plc (BGEO), the holding company of JSC Bank of Georgia (the Bank), announces that on 2 March 2016, Sanne Fiduciary Services Limited (Sanne), acting as trustee of the Senior Equity Compensation Plan, granted both deferred share salary and discretionary deferred share compensation in respect of the 2014 work year to each of the PDMRs listed in the table below. Such compensation is granted in London in the form of nil cost options in respect of BGEO ordinary shares (BGEO Shares).

 

In accordance with our Remuneration Policy, we have decided that grants of both deferred share salary and discretionary deferred share compensation should be satisfied using BGEO Shares repurchased in the market. As a result, the grant of nil cost options in respect of BGEO Shares for the 2014 work year was postponed.  Having made share repurchases during 2015 and 2016, Sanne is now in a position to make such grants in respect of the 2014 work year. Sanne will continue to repurchase BGEO Shares in the market to fulfil grants in respect of the 2015 work year.

 

Deferred share salary is set out in each PDMR's service contract with the Bank. The deferred share salary grants in respect of the 2014 work year will vest as follows: 20% immediately, 20% on each of 1 January 2017 and 1 January 2018, and the remaining 40% on 1 January 2019.

 

Discretionary deferred share compensation is dependent on both Group performance and the PDMR achieving his key performance indicators. The discretionary deferred share grants in respect of the 2014 work year will vest as follows: 50% immediately and the remaining 50% on 1 January 2017.

 

The number BGEO Shares in the form of nil cost options granted in respect of deferred share salary and discretionary deferred share compensation for each PDMR is set out in the table below.
