Awards extension

 

Ebiquity plc announces that the lapse date of certain share incentivisation awards (the "Awards", as defined below) made to Nick Manning (Chief Strategy Officer) and Michael Greenlees (formerly Chief Executive Officer who ceased to be a Director on 30 April 2016) has today been extended from 30 April 2017 to 30 April 2020, in order to retain flexibility for the Company. The Awards were originally due to lapse on 30 April 2015 and, as announced on 16 March 2015, were extended to 30 April 2017. The performance criteria relating to the Awards were satisfied in full prior to 30 April 2015 and the Awards are already fully exercisable.

 

In April 2010, Nick Manning was awarded share options over up to 1,800,000 ordinary shares of 25 pence each in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") and Michael Greenlees was awarded share options over up to 2,400,000 Ordinary Shares (together the "Awards"). An employee benefit trust was established and issued with 4,200,000 Ordinary Shares to satisfy exercise of the Awards.

 

Following this extension, Nick Manning's beneficial holdings in Ordinary Shares remains unchanged as he is interested in 230,000 Ordinary Shares (representing 0.3% of the Company's issued ordinary share capital) and holds options over 2,543,490 Ordinary Shares (including the Awards).
