Director/PDMR Shareholding

Marks and Spencer Group plc (the 'Company') announces that it has been notified of the following transactions in the Company's Ordinary 25p shares undertaken by directors / persons discharging managerial responsibility ('PDMRs').

Performance Share Plan Award 2017/18
As reported within the Annual Report on 8 June 2017, the Performance Share Plan ('PSP') continues to be Marks & Spencer's primary long-term incentive plan for executives.  As a result, it was confirmed on 15 August 2017 that, on 14 August 2017, the following awards under the PSP were made to the PDMRs of the Company.

These awards were granted as conditional awards, the vesting of which is subject to the satisfaction of certain predetermined performance conditions, as well as the continued employment of the participants. Specifically, the vesting of the awards will depend on relative Total Shareholder Return (TSR) the Company's Earnings Per Share (EPS) and Return On Capital Employed (ROCE) over a fixed three-year performance period starting on the first day of the financial year in which the awards were granted. On vesting, the awards are subject to an additional, mandatory two-year holding period. The value of dividends accrued, in the form of dividend equivalents, will be paid at the end of the period (third anniversary) based on the number of vested shares. No consideration was paid for the grant of the awards and no price is payable on the exercise of the awards. For the purposes of these awards, the grant was made at a share price of £3.297.
