Spectra Systems Corporation

("Spectra" or the "Company")

Exercise of Options and Director/PDMR Shareholding

Spectra Systems Corporation, a leader in machine-readable high speed banknote authentication, brand protection technologies, and gaming security software, announces the exercise of options by  BJ Penn, Non-Executive Chairman of Spectra.

Chairnman Penn has exercised options over 30,000 shares of common stock of $0.01 each in the Company ("Shares"). Chairman Penn has elected to pay cash for 15,000 options and to utilize the net cashless exercise feature for the remaining 15,000 options and has therefore surrendered 4,533 shares to the Company. Accordingly Chairnman Penn will be issued 25,467 shares, increasing his interest in the issued share capital of the Company to 55,467 shares, representing 0.12% of its issued share capital.

The shares being issued are restricted securities as defined in Rule 144 of the US Securities Act of 1933 and have been issued pursuant to an exemption from registration under Rule 701 promulgated under the US Securities Act of 1933.

Accordingly the Company has issued and will apply for 25,467 Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM, which is expected to take place on or around 17 September 2020 ("Admission").

Following Admission the Company's issued share capital will comprise:

·    696,626 shares in the Regulation S stock line ISIN number USU8457D1091 (AIM:SPSC); and

·    44,731,846 shares in the unrestricted line ISIN number US84756T1060 (AIM:SPSY).

In accordance with the provisions of the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules of the FCA ("DTRs"), the issued share capital of Spectra upon Admission is 45,428,472 shares with voting rights attached (one vote per share). There are no shares held in treasury, therefore this figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, Spectra under the DTRs.
