Exercise of Options and Holding in Company


Northern Bear announces that it has received notice of the exercise of options over 7,500 ordinary shares of 1 penny each in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") by employees at an exercise price of 45.75 pence per Ordinary Share (the "Options Exercise").


The Company has transferred 7,500 Ordinary Shares out of treasury to satisfy the Options Exercise. The Company's issued share capital now consists of 18,519,222 Ordinary Shares with voting rights. In addition, Northern Bear holds 362,040 Ordinary Shares in treasury. The aforementioned figure of 18,519,222 Ordinary Shares ("Enlarged Share Capital") may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, Northern Bear under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.


In addition, Northern Bear was yesterday informed by Nicholas Beaumont-Dark that, following an acquisition of Ordinary Shares, his shareholding in the Company breached the 3 per cent. threshold. Mr Beaumont-Dark's current shareholding in the Company is 660,000 Ordinary Shares representing approximately 3.56 per cent. of the Company's Enlarged Share Capital.
