Non-Standard Finance plc

(the 'Company' or the 'Group')


Director/PDMR Shareholding (notification and correction) and total voting rights

31 July 2019


The Group announces the issuance to Mr. Charles Gregson, Non-Executive Chairman of the Company, of 70,234 ordinary shares of £0.05 each ('Ordinary Shares') (the 'Shares').


In accordance with the Group's Remuneration Policy approved by shareholders on 14 May 2018, the Shares are issued to Mr. Gregson to satisfy 50% of the post-tax fees due to be paid to Mr. Gregson by the Company for the period from 1 January 2018 to 31 March 2019 (given that the purchases of Ordinary Shares purportedly purchased by the Company and transferred to Mr. Gregson for this period previously were void).


As a result of the issuance set out above, Mr. Gregson has a beneficial interest in 350,317 Ordinary Shares, representing 0.1% of the issued share capital of the Company.

Further to the issuance and the announcement made by the Company today regarding the reduction of the Company's capital by 5,070,234 Ordinary Shares, the Company's total issued share capital consists of 312,049,682 Ordinary Shares (with no shares held in treasury). The total number of voting rights in the Company remains unchanged at 312,049,682 (thereby meaning that the interests in the Company of the Company's shareholders also remain unchanged and no notifications will be required pursuant to the issuance under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules).


This announcement corrects the following 'Director / PDMR Shareholding' announcements of the Company dated: 28 June 2018 (RNS No 9264S12); 1 October 2018 (RNS No 4966C09); 21 December 2018 (RNS No 2932L11); and 29 March 2019 (RNS No 5199U12) (the 'RNSs'). The RNSs relate to Ordinary Shares purportedly purchased by the Company and transferred to Mr. Gregson. However, as the purchases by the Company were void, such transfers were not possible. As a result, the RNSs should be disregarded given that no such Ordinary Shares were transferred to Mr. Gregson.
