Directors' Shareholdings

In compliance with Disclosure and Transparency Rule 3.1.4, and following the
offer (the Offer) by Maltby Limited to acquire the whole of the issued and to
be issued share capital of EMI Group plc (the Company) being declared
unconditional in all respects on 17th August 2007, the Company announces that
options granted to certain Executive Directors under the 1995 Executive Share
Option Scheme (ESOS) and 2003 Executive Share Incentive Plan (ESIP) were
exercised on 21st August 2007 as a consequence of the change of control of the
Company resulting from the Offer.  

Awards of shares granted to certain Executive Directors under the Company's
Senior Executive Incentive Plan (SEIP) and the ESIP that would have vested as a
consequence of the change of control (after application of any performance
targets and pro-rating for time) have been cancelled in return for a cash
payment equal to the price per share paid under the Offer.
