In order to satisfy the award of Shares, the Company has allotted 4,818 new Shares to Mark Cropper and 7,868 new Shares to Patrick Willink. James Cropper EBT Ltd has transferred 42,362 Shares to the other Directors as detailed above.


Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for 12,686 new Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"), and it is expected that Admission will become effective and trading will commence at 8.00am on 14 August 2017.


Following Admission of the new Shares, the Company's enlarged issued share capital will comprise 9,479,052 Shares with voting rights.

In order to settle the income tax and national insurance liabilities on the award, all Directors, with the exception of Mark Cropper, have each sold 50% of the Shares awarded to them to James Cropper EBT Ltd, the trustees of the James Cropper Employee Trust, at a price of 1,755.0 pence per Share. Isabelle Maddock, Martin Thompson and Patrick Willink have each sold 3,934 Shares, Phil Wild has sold 8,897 Shares and Dave Watson has sold 4,416 Shares.

The issue of the above Shares to members of the Concert Party does not in this instance trigger an obligation that might otherwise arise under Rule 9 of the Takeover Code for the Concert Party to make a mandatory offer for the ordinary shares not already owned by it, as a waiver granted by the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers of the obligation was approved by independent shareholders at the Company's AGM on Wednesday 29 July 2015.


Purchase of Shares by James Cropper EBT Ltd:
