The shares have been issued into the respective joint beneficial ownership of (i) each of the participating executive Directors named below and (ii) the trustee of The Anpario plc Group Employees' Share Trust ("the Trust") upon and subject to the terms of joint ownership agreements ("JOAs") respectively entered into between the Director concerned, the Company and RBC cees Limited as trustee of the Trust ("the Trustee").

Name of Director   Jointly Owned Shares Awarded
Richard Edwards 567,039
David Bullen 242,143
Karen Prior 86,956

The awards are in substitution for the release and capping of existing share options. The terms of the JOAs provide, inter alia, that if jointly owned shares become vested and are sold, the proceeds of sale will be divided between the joint owners so that the participating Director receives an amount equal to any growth in the market value of the Jointly Owned Shares above the initial market value (79 pence per share), less a “carrying cost” (equivalent to simple interest at 4.5 per cent per annum on the initial market value) and the Trust receives the initial market value of the jointly owned shares plus the carrying cost.

Application for admission to AIM of the 896,138 new Ordinary Shares has been made and it is expected that admission will happen on 15 December 2011.

Following admission, the beneficial interests held by the Directors of the Company will remain unchanged as follows:
