On behalf of:                 B.P. Marsh & Partners Plc

Immediate release

B.P. Marsh & Partners Plc

("B.P. Marsh" or the "Company")

Share Incentive Plan

 

B.P. Marsh, the niche venture capital provider to early stage financial services businesses, announces an update further to the establishment of its HMRC sanctioned Share Incentive Plan ("SIP") as announced on 29 March 2016.

 

On 27 June 2017 a total of 13,363 ordinary shares of 10 pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares"), which were being held in Treasury, were transferred to the B.P. Marsh SIP Trust for nil consideration. As a result, together with previously unallocated shares, the B.P. Marsh SIP Trust has 37,935 Ordinary Shares available for allocation.

 

Subsequently 37,935 Ordinary Shares, held in the B.P. Marsh SIP Trust, have been granted to eligible employees as part of the Company's HMRC Sanctioned Share Incentive Plan ("SIP").

 

A total of 9 eligible employees applied for the 2017-18 SIP and have each been granted 1,686 Ordinary Shares ("17-18 Free Shares"), representing approximately £3,600 at the market price at the time of allocation. Furthermore, all eligible employees have elected to take up the opportunity to acquire 843 Ordinary Shares ("Partnership Shares"), equating to approximately £1,800 at a price of 213.5 pence per Ordinary Share.  For every Partnership Share that an eligible employee acquires, the SIP Trust has allocated for nil consideration two Ordinary Shares ("Matching Shares"), equating to an allocation of 1,686 Matching Shares to each eligible employee. In aggregate, therefore, each eligible employee will hold an additional 4,215 Ordinary Shares under the SIP. The 17-18 Free and Matching Shares are subject to a 1 year forfeiture period.

 

Certain Company Directors and Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ("PDMR") have participated in this award and further details of the relevant Directors' and PDMR's interests in Ordinary Shares (as at today's date, following the award of 17-18 Free, Partnership and Matching Shares) are set out below:

At the date of this announcement, the total number of Ordinary Shares in issue is 29,226,040, and the total number of voting rights in B.P. Marsh, is 29,205,031. The Company holds 21,009 Ordinary Shares in Treasury.
