Exercise of Options, Director/PDMR and PCA Dealing and Total Voting Rights

 

Character Group (AIM: CCT) the designer, developer and international distributor of branded toys, games and giftware, announces that Mr Jerry Healy, the Group Marketing Director and a Person Discharging Managerial Responsibilities (PDMR), today notified the Company that he has exercised an option today in respect of 18,000 ordinary shares of 5p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") at an exercise price of 213p per share pursuant to the Company's 2006 share option plan and, subsequently, transferred 32,000 Ordinary Shares to his wife, Mrs Kathleen Ann Healy, for nil consideration. To satisfy the exercise of options, the Company has transferred 18,000 Ordinary Shares from treasury. Following this option exercise, Mr Healy's interest in shares in the Company, including the interests of Persons Closely Associated ("PCAs") with him, has increased to 73,000 Ordinary Shares, which represents approximately 0.34% of the Company's issued voting share capital.

 

Following the exercise of Mr Healy's share options and the corresponding transfer of shares to him from treasury, the Company's issued share capital consists of 23,735,815 Ordinary Shares of which 2,576,106 are held in treasury.

 

Therefore, the total number of Ordinary Shares carrying voting rights in Character Group is 21,159,709. The above figure of 21,159,709 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest, or a change to their interest, in the Company under the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
