Director Shareholding

To comply with paragraph 16.13 of the Listing Rules, we advise that:

EMI Group EBT (Guernsey) Limited, the Trustee of The EMI Group General Employee
Benefit Trust ("EBT"), has today informed the Company by a letter dated 22nd
May 2002 (received by fax) that it awarded on 22nd May 2002 to two employees
and six former employees, at no consideration, in respect of awards under the
EMI Group Senior Executive Incentive Plan ("the SEIP") a total of 614,868 EMI
Group plc Ordinary Shares of 14p each.   Of this total, 65,000 Ordinary Shares
were awarded to Mr Eric Luciano Nicoli and 350,000 Ordinary Shares were awarded
to Mr Martin Neal Bandier, both being Executive Directors of the Company, and
represented the release to them of restricted shares, the initial award of
which has previously been reported under paragraph 16.13;

in its letter, the Trustee of the EBT stated that it had withheld a total of
209,316 Ordinary Shares in respect of the tax liabilities arising from the
awards.   Of this total, 125,300 Ordinary Shares relate to the tax liabilities
of Mr Bandier;

as a result of these transactions, the interest of Mr Nicoli in up to 65,000
Ordinary Shares, and the interest of Mr Bandier in up to 350,000 Ordinary
Shares arising from the SEIP was replaced by a beneficial interest in 65,000
and 224,700 Ordinary Shares respectively;  and,

following the release of the Company's audited results for the year ended 31st
March 2002, performance awards and the related matching awards made under the
SEIP in respect of the 1999 plan year have lapsed, due to the non-achievement
of the related performance criteria, for the following Executive Directors:


- Performance Award:  143,182

- Matching Award:  47,727


- Performance Award:  86,306

- Matching Award:  28,768

As a result of the above, the number of Ordinary Shares in which EMI Group
plc's Executive Directors and other employees of the EMI Group have a potential
interest through the EBT decreases to 4,860,443 all being held in the name of
Barfield Nominees Ltd, Account No. 6497.
