Share Incentive Plan

 

B.P. Marsh, the niche venture capital provider to early stage financial services businesses, announces that on 13 June 2019, a total of 19,218 ordinary shares of 10p each ("Ordinary Shares") which were being held in treasury were transferred to the B.P. Marsh SIP Trust. As a result, together with the previously unallocated shares, the B.P. Marsh SIP Trust has 33,330 Ordinary Shares available for allocation.

 

Subsequently 33,330 Ordinary Shares, held in the B.P. Marsh SIP Trust, have been granted to eligible employees as part of the Company's HMRC Sanctioned Share Incentive Plan ("SIP").

 

A total of 11 eligible employees applied for the 2017-18 SIP and have each been granted 1,212 Ordinary Shares ("18-19 Free Shares"), representing approximately £3,600 at the market price at the time of invitation. Furthermore, all eligible employees have elected to take up the opportunity to acquire 606 Ordinary Shares ("Partnership Shares"), equating to approximately £1,800 at the price of invitation.  For every Partnership Share that an eligible employee acquires, the SIP Trust has allocated for nil consideration two Ordinary Shares ("Matching Shares"), equating to an allocation of 1,212 Matching Shares to each eligible employee. In aggregate, therefore, each eligible employee will hold an additional 3,030 Ordinary Shares under the SIP. The 17-18 Free and Matching Shares are subject to a 1 year forfeiture period.

 

The Directors and Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ("PDMR") have participated in this award and further details of the Directors' and PDMRs' interests in Ordinary Shares (as at today's date, following the award of 17-18 Free, Partnership and Matching Shares) are set out below:
