Vesting of Long Term Incentive Plan 2017 (2017 LTIP) awards and PDMR notifications

ScS Group plc (the "Company") announces that on 17 October 2019, the Company's Employee Benefit Trust ("EBT") has transferred 236,495 ordinary shares of 0.1 pence in the Company (the "Shares") to four PDMRs in satisfaction of vesting of share awards granted on 17 October 2016 (the "2017 LTIP"), details of which are set out below:

Chris Muir, CFO

Marie Liston, Corporate Services Director

The 2017 LTIP crystallised on achieving the below performance criteria for the period 31st July 2016 to 27th July 2019 for earnings per share ("EPS"), as approved by the Remuneration Committee:

Greater than 27.3 pence but less than 34.4 pence

Straight-line basis between 25% and 100%

34.4 pence

The EPS for the Group for this period was 30.27 pence, which exceeds the minimum performance condition set of 27.3 pence;  the Remuneration Committee has therefore agreed an award of 56.33% of the maximum.
