Director's Shareholding and Ordinary Shares in Issue


The Board of First Property Group plc (AIM:FPO) announces that the Company has issued from Treasury 12,929 Ordinary Shares of one pence each in the Company to Mr Peter Moon, a non-executive Director, in satisfaction of part of his emoluments for the six months ended 30 April 2016.


Under the terms of his appointment Mr Moon receives 40% of his emoluments (£11,000 was the relevant annual value to 31 March 2016, £12,000 from 1 April 2016), in Ordinary Shares based on the average closing price of the Company's Ordinary Shares for the five day period following the announcement of the half year and annual results. In this case the average closing mid-price per Ordinary Share for the five business days between 10 June 2016 and 16 June 2016 was 43.185 pence. A similar announcement is expected in January 2017 following the publication of the Group's interim results.


As a result of this allotment of shares, Mr Moon's shareholding in the Company is 409,513 Ordinary Shares, which equates to 0.35% of the enlarged issued Ordinary Share capital.


Following the sale from Treasury, the Company has in issue 115,980,040 Ordinary Shares.

The figure of 115,980,040 Ordinary Shares may be used by shareholders as the denominator for calculations by which to determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules. 621,075 Ordinary Shares remain in Treasury.
