Issue of Options

Dillistone Group Plc, the AIM quoted supplier of software to the recruitment industry, announces the grant on 3 July 2019 of options over 590,000 Ordinary Shares of 5p each in Dillistone (the "Options") to certain of its Directors, PDMRs and other members of staff.

Options over 415,000 Ordinary Shares were granted, exercisable within 3 to 10 years but subject to performance conditions, to three Directors, two PDMRs and other senior managers under the Company's LTIP scheme with an exercise price of 33p per share. Details of the grants to Directors and the PDMRs are set out below.  The non-executive Directors are satisfied that the performance conditions are suitably challenging, particularly for the higher level of pay-outs.

In addition, options over 175,000 Ordinary Shares were granted, exercisable within 3 to 10 years but without performance conditions, to other members of staff.
