LTIP Award - Issue of Shares

 

Epwin Group Plc (AIM: EPWN) ("Epwin" or the "Group"), the leading manufacturer of low maintenance building products, supplying the Repair, Maintenance and Improvement ("RMI"), new build and social housing sectors, announces that the Company has issued in aggregate 1,594,108 new ordinary shares of 0.05p each ("NewOrdinary Shares") to Jonathan Bednall, Christopher Empson and Shaun Hanrahan, who are Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ("PDMRs"), as well as certain other senior management pursuant to the Long Term Incentive Plan  ("LTIP") established in 2017, in respect of performance in the three financial years ending 31 December 2019.  The details of the LTIP are set out in the Company annual report to 31 December 2017.

 

Vesting of the LTIP was due on the finalisation of results for the year ended 31 December 2019, however the Remuneration Committee, in consultation with management, agreed to defer the award as part of a range of actions taken by the Board to manage the initial impact of COVID-19 on the Group's cashflows.  Full details of the grants to the executive directors are set out in disclosure tables below.  The awards will be settled net of taxation in equity, with taxation liabilities paid from Group cash facilities. The New Ordinary Shares are subject to a minimum retention period of six months from the date of receipt.

 

Application has been made for the New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM, and admission is expected to take place on 23 December 2020 ("Admission"). Following Admission, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 144,547,210 ordinary shares. There are no ordinary shares held in treasury. Therefore, following Admission, this figure of 144,547,210 should be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
