("Sosandar" or the "Company")

 

 

Sosandar, the online women's fashion brand, announces the establishment of a new Long Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP"), pursuant to which it has granted new nil cost options ("New Options") over, in aggregate, 21,431,942 ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") to its executive directors and members of the senior management team. As part of these arrangements, the Company has also cancelled existing options ("Existing Options") granted over, in aggregate, 13,888,742 Ordinary Shares.

 

Recipients of the New Options included certain of the Company's Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibility ("PDMRs") as follows:

Note: Ali Hall and Julie Lavington each continue to hold a further 1,655,629 options over Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Company's Enterprise Management Incentive share option scheme.

 

The Existing Options, prior to cancellation, had an exercise price of 15.1 pence per Ordinary Share, save for 293,813 Existing Options held by Lynsey Emersic with an exercise price of 29.2p per Ordinary Share. Of the Existing Options, 9,210,191 had fully vested at the point of cancellation.

 

Of the New Options, (i) 3,817,314 granted to each of Ali Hall and Julie Lavington and 185,586 granted to Lynsey Emersic will vest and be capable of exercise immediately; and (ii) 1,908,657 granted to each of Ali Hall and Julie Lavington and 151,603 granted to Lynsey Emersic will vest and be capable of exercise subject to the Company achieving break-even profitability (being the same criteria for exercise as applied to the unvested Existing Options prior to their cancellation).

 

The balance of the New Options granted to each of the PDMRs in the table above, together with a further 540,000 New Options granted to certain other members of the Company's senior management team, will vest and be capable of exercise subject to the closing mid-market price per Ordinary Share exceeding 60 pence on 60 consecutive business days. All New Options must be exercised on or before 18 June 2031. There are no further conditions applicable to exercise of the New Options.

 

The grant of the 21,431,942 New Options and cancellation of the 13,888,742 Existing Options each took place on 18 June 2021. As a result of these changes, the Company now has 27,760,897 options outstanding over Ordinary Shares, equal to approximately 12.56% of the Company's issued share capital (11.15% on a fully diluted basis). The New Options have been granted following consultation with certain of the Company's major institutional shareholders.

 

Commenting on the above arrangements, Bill Murray, Non-Executive Chairman, said:

 

"The inspirational leadership and vision of our founders and co-CEOs, coupled with the hard work and commitment of the senior team have delivered strong results for Sosandar. The board has recognised the need to review our LTIP arrangements and put in place a plan that effectively motivates and incentivises the senior team appropriately. Now is the right time to be implementing our plan, at such an exciting point in our journey, and I am delighted we have been able to confirm this new LTIP scheme for the team."
