The Berkeley Group Holdings plc

(the "Company")

 

Notification of Total Voting Rights and Transactions of persons discharging managerial responsibilities

 

Total Voting Rights

 

Further to the announcement made by the Company on 20 September 2016, an additional 1,900,000 ordinary shares of 5p each of the Company ("Shares") were admitted to trading on 22 September 2016 and issued to The Berkeley Group Holdings plc Employee Benefit Trust (the "EBT"). 

 

As at 30 September 2016 the Company's issued share capital consists of 140,157,183 Shares, including 886,833 Shares held in Treasury.

 

The Company's issued share capital with one voting right per share therefore consists of 139,270,350 Shares.  This figure should be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator when determining whether they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the UK Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

 

Of the new Shares issued to the EBT, 1,798,327 Shares have been utilised to satisfy options vested under The Berkeley Group Holdings plc 2011 Long-Term Incentive Plan ("the 2011 LTIP"), net of the exercise price of £10 per Share and employee income tax and national insurance contributions.

 

Directors' Shareholdings

 

On 30 September 2016, 33% of the options to acquire Shares granted under the 2011 LTIP vested.

The Company was notified on 30 September 2016 that the Directors detailed below had exercised their options to acquire Shares at an option exercise price of £10 per Share.  The Company was also notified on 30 September 2016 that the EBT had transferred Shares to those Directors net of the option exercise price and employee's income tax and national insurance contributions as detailed in the below table.
