Grant of Conditional Share Awards and PDMR Dealings

Gresham Technologies plc (LSE: "GHT", "Gresham", "Company", "Group"), the leading software and services company that specialises in providing solutions for data integrity and control, banking integration, payments and cash management, announces that it has made inaugural grants of Conditional Share Awards pursuant to the Company's Performance Share Plan ("PSP").

As set out in the Company's circular dated 11 December 2020, the remuneration committee has discretion to approve the grant of Conditional Share Awards under the PSP to attract, retain and incentivise key employees of the Group. This inaugural grant follows the successful execution of a first phase of integration and organisational change as a result of the Group's acquisition of Electra Information Systems in June 2021. The awards are designed to secure and promote the Group's long-term strategic objectives, and further awards are expected to be made in the subsequent nine years of the plan, subject always to the plan limits.

The inaugural grant, which includes new and existing key employees of the Group, includes the following grants to executive directors:

Ian Manocha (CEO)

203,000

Tom Mullan (CFO)

* Maximum potential award. Actual values will be based on achievement of performance targets over the vesting period.

The grant of Conditional Share Awards was made on 21 October 2021 pursuant to the rules of the Performance Share Plan 2020, which was adopted by shareholders on 30 December 2020. Each Conditional Share Award is subject to a minimum three-year vesting period and will only vest if and to the extent that certain individual and financial performance targets are achieved, up to the maximum stated above, subject to the awardee remaining in the Company's employment throughout the vesting period. The Conditional Share Award made to Mr Ian Manocha includes a base award of 135,000 shares and an additional potential award of up to 68,000 shares in the event of exceptional performance.  

The notification below, made in accordance with the requirements of the UK Market Abuse Regulation, provides further detail of the awards to PDMRs.
