Nucleus Financial Group plc

("Nucleus" or the "Company")

Share purchases under the Company's Share Incentive Plan

Director/PDMR Shareholding

 

Nucleus (AIM: NUC) announces that, further to the details included in the Company's AIM admission document in respect of the all-employee Share Incentive Plan ("SIP"), it has received notification that the first purchase of ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") by the SIP trustee on behalf of participating employees took place on 12 December 2018.

Nucleus supports the principles of wider share ownership amongst all its people and the SIP is designed to help employees acquire the Company's Ordinary Shares in a tax efficient way. The Nucleus SIP is an all-employee share ownership plan approved by HM Revenue and Customs, under which eligible employees are able to purchase Ordinary Shares in the Company via the SIP trustee, either by monthly salary deductions or by investing a lump sum (up to the value of £1,800) in the plan.  The Ordinary Shares purchased are known as "Partnership Shares" and for each Partnership Share purchased, participants are awarded one matching free Ordinary Share (a "Matching Share"), which the SIP trustee purchases, funded by the Company.  Partnership and Matching Shares must be held in the SIP for five years from the date of their respective purchase before they can be withdrawn by the employee free of income tax and National Insurance contributions. Purchases of Partnership Shares and Matching Shares are anticipated to take place on a monthly basis going forwards on behalf of those employees participating during the relevant month.

Details of the Partnership Shares and Matching Shares purchased by the SIP trustee on behalf of PDMRs are set out in the table below. The Partnership and Matching Shares were purchased by the SIP trustee on behalf of the below PDMRs at a price of 135 pence per share.
