Secure Trust Bank (the "Company") announces that on 24 January 2020 Paul Lynam, Chief Executive Officer and a PDMR of the Company, exercised 141,667 2011 share options at an exercise price of 720 pence and 3,497 Deferred Bonus Plan ("DBP") share options at an exercise price of 40 pence over a total of 145,164 ordinary shares of 40 pence each ("Ordinary Shares").

Subsequently, the Company has been notified that Paul Lynam has sold 103,680 Ordinary Shares at a price of 1,550 pence to fund the acquisition of the shares and to cover the tax and national insurance arising from the exercise, with the remaining 41,484 Ordinary Shares from the exercise being retained.

Mr Lynam's shareholding in the Group has increased from 19,012 shares to 60,496 shares as a result of this transaction, which is consistent with his commitment to build up his shareholding in the Company over time.

The following share option exercises have been made and accordingly the Company will issue 145,164 new ordinary shares ("New Shares") as detailed below:

An application has been made for the New Shares to be admitted to the premium segment of the Official List of the UK Listing Authority (the "Official List") and to trading on London Stock Exchange plc's main market ("Main Market") for listed securities (together, "Admission"). The shares will rank pari passu with the existing issued shares of the Company and Admission is expected to occur on 29 January 2020.

Following Admission, the Company will have a total of 18,622,664 Ordinary Shares in issue (the "Enlarged Share Capital") each carrying one voting right. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in Treasury.
