ASOS Plc

(the "Company")

Director/PDMR Shareholding

 

On 17 April 2018, ASOS Plc (the "Company") announced that Nicholas Robertson, Non-Executive Director, had granted a pledge in favour of Credit Suisse (UK) Limited ("Credit Suisse") over 1,000,000 ordinary shares of 3.5 pence each in the Company (the "Shares") pursuant to a margin loan facility with Credit Suisse. 

 

The Company announces today that it has been notified that, in order to close his position with Credit Suisse, Nicholas Robertson has had to sell the Shares, which have been sold in the market at a price of £21.00 per share.  This has extinguished the pledge and margin loan facility and as a result Credit Suisse no longer holds any security or other interest in any shares in the Company owned by Nicholas Robertson.

 

Following the disposal, Nicholas Robertson continues to hold 3,636,414 ordinary shares of 3.5 pence each in the Company, representing approximately 3.64% of the Company's issued share capital. Nicholas Robertson has confirmed to the Company that none of these shares are subject to any pledge or other security.

 

This announcement is made in accordance with Article 19 of the EU Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014.
