For immediate release

6 September 2017

Octagonal plc

("Octagonal" or the "Company")


Grant of Director Shares and Options

PDMR Dealings

Octagonal Plc  (LSE: OCT), the AIM traded financial services group, is pleased to announce that the following Ordinary Shares and Share Options have been awarded to the Company's Executive Directors in respect of the Group's performance in the year ended 31 March 2017:

 

Ordinary Shares have been granted (representing approximately 0.89% of the current issued share capital) as fully paid Ordinary Shares of 0.05p each ("Ordinary Shares") as follows (the "Director Shares"):

 

John Gunn, Chief Executive Officer                           2,750,000 Ordinary Shares

Samantha Esqulant, Chief Operating Officer             1,687,500 Ordinary Shares

Nilesh Jagatia, Finance Director                                  562,500 Ordinary Shares

Total                                                                           5,000,000 Ordinary Shares

 

As a result, the Company advises that the directors will have the following shareholdings in the Company:

Application is being made for the 5,000,000 Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"), such Admission is expected to occur on or around 14 September 2017.

 

On Admission, the Director Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared after the date of their issue. 

 

Following Admission of the Director Shares, the Company will then have 567,226,886 Ordinary Shares in issue with voting rights (tne "Enlarged Issued Share Capital") and admitted to trading on AIM. This figure may then be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculation by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

 

In addition to the above, the following Share Options (the "Options") have been granted to the Executive Directors:

 

John Gunn                                           5,250,000 Options

Samantha Esqulant                             3,750,000 Options

Nilesh Jagatia                                      3,000,000 Options

Total                                                   12,000,000 Options

 

The Options have a 3 year term and an exercise price of 3p per Ordinary Share, representing a premium of 15.4% to the closing mid-market price on 5 September 2017. Half of the Options vest immediately whilst the other 50% vest in 12 months with the 3 year term commencing then, assuming the Option holder is still employed by the Company at that time. The total Options represent issued represents 2.1% of the Enlarged Issued Share Capital.

 

These are the only options currently in issue.

 

The grant of the Director Shares and Share Options constitutes a related party transaction under the AIM Rules. Accordingly, the independent director, being Martin Davidson, a Non-Executive Director of the Company, having consulted with the Company's Nominated Adviser, confirms that the issue of the Director Shares and Options is fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.
