THIS ANNOUNCEMENT CONTAINS INSIDE INFORMATION

Ideagen PLC

("Ideagen," "the Company" or the "Group'')

Directors' dealings

Ideagen PLC (AIM: IDEA), a leading supplier of Information Management software to highly regulated industries, announces dealings by certain directors in Ideagen's ordinary shares of 1p each ("Ordinary Shares").

Graeme Spenceley, Barnaby Kent and Ben Dorks, executive directors (the "Exercising Directors"), have each exercised 600,000 options over Ordinary Shares (the "Options"). Each subsequently sold 300,000 Ordinary Shares at a price of 152 pence per Ordinary Share to cover the costs and tax arising on the exercise. These Options were awarded pursuant to the Group's 2017 Long Term Incentive Plan and the Board (excluding the Exercising Directors) used their discretion under the 2017 Long Term Incentive Plan to allow the early exercise of the Options and associated sale.

Each of the Exercising Directors have undertaken to the Board that they will not, without the permission of the Board (excluding each of the Exercising Directors), sell any of the remaining 300,000 Ordinary Shares issued to each of them pursuant to this exercise before the fourth anniversary of issue on 23 March 2021 when they would otherwise have been entitled to do so in accordance with the 2017 Long Term Incentive Plan.

Furthermore, Graeme Spenceley, sold a further 300,000 Ordinary Shares previously held by him at a price of 152 pence per Ordinary Share, as set out in the below table.

Application has been made for the total of 1,800,000 new Ordinary Shares issued pursuant to the above exercises of Share Options, which will rank pari passu with existing Ordinary Shares, to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission").

Following Admission, the total issued share capital of the Company will consist of 218,924,518 Ordinary Shares.
